Garage Door Inspection – A Good Idea
It doesn’t take much for a door to become unsafe to use. Every year over 30,000 people get injured by an automatic garage door with many of the injuries also occurring to small children. One good reason calling a professional to assist with your garage door is a smart idea. Garage doors do lots of work and also handle lots of stress. Combine this with a busy household, and you have a door that opens and closes up 1,500 times a year. As a result of injuries, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission advises inspecting doors once every month to ensure safe and in proper working condition.
Checking Garage Springs

The pressure springs use to operate is enormous and also can cause serious harm. Always use a professional for installing new garage springs. The lifespan of a garage spring is 7-9 years. For garages used as a home entrance, then the life of your springs drops to 4-6 years. It’s common to replace springs a few times during ownership of a home.
