Should I use the old track with a new garage door?

Answer: When buying a replacement garage door, some homeowners are tempted to save a few dollars by putting the new door on the old track.  However, your old track may not fit with your new door, depending on the thickness of your sections, the weight of the door, the headroom required and the location of the garage door opener!  The track and sections work together as a system.   For maximum performance and long life, you should use the track that is designed for your specific door.

When should I service my existing garage doors?

Answer: Your garage door is probably the largest moving part in your home and is typically used everyday.  Over time, parts can wear out and break, creating potential safety problems and operation issues.  You should really have monthly safety checks and maintenance to your garage door system, an annual visit from a trained door systems technician can keep your door operating safely and smoothly for a long time.

What should I door with my manual?

Answer: Keep the owner’s manual for your door and opener hanging near the door for easy reference.  Every model of door and opener has specific safety instructions unique to that model.
