Perform Some Simple Tests

Start by opening and closing your garage doors. Listen to them closely. Do they sound normal to you are they making some unusual noises? If you hear anything that is odd, call our experts at Premium Garage Door Service Inc., and we can come out and take a look at your garage doors to make sure they are still running safely and smoothly.

Next, test your garage doors to ensure they are properly balanced. You can do this by disconnecting the opener by pulling the release handle. Then, move the door halfway up by hand. See if the door stays where you put it. If it doesn’t stay in place, then call us for help. Balancing your garage doors and getting them back on track is a job for the professionals and is definitely not a DIY project.

Give them a Once-Over

The best thing you can do is take a look at your garage doors on a regular basis. Make sure there are no missing parts or any needed repairs or replacements. Tighten up any loose nuts and bolts. If you see anything that does not look right, call in a company that specializes in garage doors, like Premium Garage Door Service.
