What's the average lifespan of components?
Each component of your garage door has different lifespan expectancy. Most steel parts will last for decades unless they are damaged for any other reason in between or they erode due to high moisture. If you want them to last more, invest in galvanized ones. Garage door springs usually last for about seven years!
What do I do when the clicker doesn't work?
See if it works by standing right across the opener. If it does, there's something wrong with the antenna. Replace the batteries and make sure that the clicker is not broken. To ensure it's the clicker's fault, see if the door opens from the wall button. If it does, call our technicians for repairs.
Which is better? A wooden or a steel garage door?
Each of these door materials offers pros and cons, though steel is more common because steel doors are easier to maintain, and are ideal if you want an insulated door to save on your electricity bill. Wood, on the other hand is more customizable.
What is the lifespan of standard garage door springs?
Standard torsion springs can work for about 10,000 cycles. A cycle includes one opening or closing. You may expect the springs to last for 7 to 10 years depending on how frequent you use the door. If it breaks, it has to be replaced by individuals with technical knowledge.
What are the common causes of garage door opener malfunctions?
Since garage door openers have both mechanical and electronic components, malfunctions and damage are divided between the two. Wear and tear will cause breakdown in the mechanical components like the gears, chain and belt. Electronic components like the circuit board itself have also been known to get fried in electrical surges.
