If you're looking for ways to get the most out of your garage door, we have some helpful advice to give you. Take a look at the following FAQs to find answers that will offer you useful information about this type of system and the proper maintenance it needs.
Why do garage door parts come in different sizes?
Garage door parts are manufactured in different sizes because each system is different and has its own specific requirements. High lift systems will need much longer tracks than standard ones. The height, weight and overall dimensions of your door will determine the size of the components it needs, and using parts that aren't perfect for your specific system can lead to frequent malfunctions that can be potentially very dangerous.
What should I do if my garage door opener isn't working properly?
Our experts at Redlands recommend checking the wall switch first, because if the problem could be something to do with the remote. The next thing to do is to make sure the main unit is getting power and that the photo eye sensors are positioned correctly. If you discover a problem, or if you can't seem to find where the issue lies, give our team a call.
How does rolling code technology work?
This feature changes the codes that your opener and your remote control use to communicate. That means that if some tech-savvy thieves were to intercept these codes somehow in an attempt to create a duplicate that will help them get into your home, the code they get will no longer be functional. Rolling code technology is a great security feature that is worth investing in.
Can the door still work with a broken spring?
This is possible only in rare cases when the opener is powerful enough to lift the unit by itself, but this is a temporary thing, and it won't last. It may prevent the door from crashing down, but you should not try to operate it until you have the broken spring replaced. If you try to use your door before that, you risk damaging the opener and getting seriously hurt yourself.
