There are a lot of things that can go wrong with an automatic garage door system, and luckily for you our experts can handle them all. Take a look at our FAQs below to learn some useful information.
How can I open my garage door when there is no electricity?
This depends on the model of your garage door. All automatic doors should have an emergency release cord that can be pulled, so that the door can be used manually if needed. For future-proofing, we recommend installing an emergency battery backup, especially if your area is prone to power cuts.
What are the most common garage door related accidents?
Garage doors and electric openers are manufactured with special emphasis on the safety of their users. According to our technicians, most accidents happen because people meddle with garage door springs or forget to check that the safety sensors are correctly functioning. If you have your system professionally serviced on an annual basis, you'll be fine.
What type of garage door opener should I buy?
This is a personal preference that will be affected by the layout of your property and type of garage you already have. There are several options available on the market today. If there is a living area just above your garage, then a belt drive opener is probably preferable, as it operates with minimal noise. A chain drive opener is another affordable option but it tends to be noisy and may need to be maintained more frequently.
