Get familiar with simple methods that can help you keep garage doors functional and free of problems.
Wood treatment for doors
The first thing you need to do is find the right product. In fact our specialists recommend that you insist on weather proofing as well. Use a paint that is specifically designed for the outdoors. In that way you will increase its longevity and practicality. White may look nice but it very easily turns dirty.
The photo eye test
Every month you should ensure that you perform a photo eye test. This is only appropriate for automated or electronic openers. The sensor is a very accurate measure of whether the door is rising in response to a trapped body underneath it. This is essential even if you get an additional accessory for this purpose.
