HELPFUL INFORMATION

Whether it's a sectional roll-up or a one-piece flip-up door, springs do not last a lifetime – even if companies have told you otherwise. And getting the correct spring size for your door is very important. Garage doors also need to be inspected and tested on a regular basis to ensure safe operations.

Garage doors should be tested for balance and manual operation on a regular basis. This can be done by releasing the door from the automatic operator while the door is in the down position. (Never release a door from the operator while the door is in the open position. If a spring and/or a cable is broken, the door will come down without notice.) A balanced door (sectional roll-up door or one piece flip-up door) should always stay closed manually, be able to be rolled up manually (some wood sectional custom doors with the correct springs and balance can still be heavy to move), and somewhere in the middle of the movement, the door should balance out, hold steady and remain manually open. If this is not the case, call a professional to inspect, service and balance the door.

All doors should be lubricated on a regular basis at all hinges, springs, bearings, wheels and cables.

A door that does not operate manually properly can cause property damage or injury. For automatic operators, all operators must reverse when obstructed by an object no less than 1 ½" laying flat on floor. If you encounter any of these issues please give us a call and we'll be happy to provide you with the appropriate service and advice.

Always refer to your user's manual before servicing or adjusting your door or operator. Most door and operator manufacturers have a service manual that can be downloaded from their website. Please note: older operators may no longer be in business, and therefore manuals may not be available.
