Consider adding a peephole to the door that separates your home from your garage
You may think that you don’t need a peephole in the door that connects your home to your garage but you may want to reconsider. It's a minimal and easily installed security method that will allow you to look inside your garage and make sure there’s nothing going on in there before you open the door.
Lubricate the moving metal parts of your garage door
It’s a good idea to use a lithium based lubricant on moving metal like the rollers, springs, and hinges about once a year to keep the garage door's movement smooth and efficient. It will help these components perform better and also reduce the wear and tear damage they experience.
Inspect your garage door cables regularly
The lift cables are responsible for literally lifting the door as the force from the springs is transferred to them during the opening process. Because of that, and because they support the weight of the panels while the door is in motion, the cables can gradually become frayed. That's why you should inspect their condition every so often to make sure they aren't getting ready to break. If you need to get them replaced, give our team a call.
