When must I paint my garage door?
Not all door panels need painting. For example, aluminum overhead doors won't need to be painted but wood and steel would be affected by the local weather conditions in Galena Park and apart from the required garage door repair, the panel would need to be repainted the moment the old varnish starts peeling off. It's important to paint it as soon as you discover rust or mold and it's good to paint it in the summer.
How can I check the opener sensors?
Sensors must be facing each other in order to detect an obstacle under the closing door and reverse the mechanism. Since they are parts of the electric garage door openers, they must be properly connected and so you must check the wires. The most important thing is the inspection of their effectiveness. You just need to create the circumstances yourself by placing an object under the door to ensure the sensors will reverse the door's movement.
How can I secure garage doors?
Some wireless garage door keypad systems allow you to lock the garage door and some doors can be locked with special bolts. If you want to ensure the security of your house, make sure the bottom seal is replaced often and that there is no gap under the door that will give an intruder the pleasure of using his equipment to pull up the door. So, garage door service is required often. Also place CCTV systems right outside.
Should I use a bottom seal or threshold seal?
The bottom seal is the better option as it actually covers the bottom part of the door and prevents it from getting in contact with water, dirt and other damaging compounds. The threshold seal can stop water from entering the garage but its moisture can steel creep to the bottom of the door.
