Garage doors today have security features such as the automatic reverse function. Our specialists suggest that you regularly check this function if it is working properly. Place a 1 ½” piece of wood at the open door’s center floor, then close the door using the clicker. If the door will not reverse when it hit the wood, you need to it repaired as soon as possible as it poses a serious risk.
Visual inspection is a very important aspect of garage door maintenance. When performing it, be sure to check the surroundings of your garage. Remove any tree branch hanging near the garage door especially the door opener sensors. These can obscure the signal between clicker and opener and affect the functionality of your door.
