Overhead Door Repair

Make Sure This is Included in Your Home Inspection...

Are you in the market to buy a home? Make sure your garage door is included in your home inspection. The fact that it opens doesn't necessarily mean that it's in good condition. A repair or even having to replace an opener later on won't be expensive, but if the door itself is in poor condition and/or needs to be replaced, that's definitely something you want to factor into your offer.





Take Advantage of the Additional Functions of Your Keyless Entry Pad

Great info. Most keypads have these additional functions, yet most often go unused. Take a moment to read through your manual and take advantage of the additional conveniences your keypad offers. Here is a ink to Raynor Garage Door's article, shared by our friends at Sullivan Door Co, IL on FB.

"One of our most popular home accessories is the Keyless Entry Keypad. If you have one now, you already know how convenient it can be when you or other family members wish to open the garage door without a remote in hand.

Good Info. for Homeowners with Large Garage Doors

Good info. shared by our friends at Wayne-Dalton via Google+:

If you own a large garage door that measures up to 20 ft. wide, use a tension bridge to support the door in high wind areas or if the door is open for more than 8 hours at a time. ‪#‎Garage101‬


Garage Door Anatomy

FYI: Know the anatomy of your garage door:
Shared by our friends at National Garage Door, GA on FB:Your ‪#‎garagedoor‬ is the largest piece of equipment in your home with numerous moving parts. If it's not properly serviced and maintained, your garage door is likely to give you problems."


How Much Use Do You Give Your Garage Door?

Interesting fact shared by our friends at Smokey's Garage Door, AZ on FB:
"FACT: Opening and closing your garage door for work each day amounts to 500 times a year!"
Keep in mind that this is only calculating one person in the household, opening and closing the door just 5 days per week. Add to that all the other members of our household and all the other times a day and on weekends that we use our garage doors. It adds up to quite a bit of use. So be sure to conduct your own preliminary inspection of your garage door components. If you notice anything not working properly, call your local garage door professional. In Palm Beach County, Martin County or Port St. Lucie, FL, call us at 561-747-3332. Keep your garage door and opener operating smoothly and safely. 

Broken Garage Door Hinges Should be Replaced Immediately

A broken or loose hinge on a garage door is often disregarded because the door will usually continue to operate. But it is in fact a repair that should be taken care of immediately, especially if it is on the end holding a roller/wheel. Broken or loose hinges have the potential to cause damage to your door.
