Are you keeping up on garage door safety?

Garage Doors Staten Island New York

door safety–  Who needs it, am I right?  No. I’m wrong.  Horribly horribly wrong.  Everyone needs garage door safety, because without it, your garage door can easily become a death trap that is just waiting to destroy you.  Don’t believe me?  Well, let’s just run down the simple list of the various tests that you should have done, and what exactly can go wrong if you neglect them.  There are three tests total:

  1. Garage Door Force and Reverse Safety Testing.  This is an important part of garage door safety as it means that when the garage door encounters the slightest amount of resistant force, it will immediately change course and reverse along the track.  This means that, should the door hit anything, whether an inanimate object or otherwise, you’re safe.  You don’t need much of an imagination to see what could happen if the garage door didn’t stop when it hit something, like a person.
  2. Emergency Release Carriage Safety Testing.  This is a simple test of the emergency release system that allows you to open and close the garage door without the garage door opener.  In the event of an emergency, you may need to get out of your home through your garage, and if you can’t open the garage door, you might be stuck. . .
  3. Photoelectric Eye and Garage Door Opener Sensor System Testing.  This test ensures that the “eyes” of your garage door opener are functioning properly so that your garage door won’t close if something is in the way.  Again, you can probably figure out how this could go wrong.

So, now that you know the alternative, are you ready to take garage door safety seriously?

Garage Door Squeaking?

Staten Island Garage Doors – New York

Has your garage door started making really strange or annoying sounds lately? This can be a huge issue and should definitely be checked out by a professional. In some cases though it could simply be that your garage door hinges or springs just need to be lubricated. You may not know the difference initially, but once you have a technician out to check up on the door they can give you some hints. They will be able to tell you if the issues is simply needing to lubricate hinges or springs and then let you know how you will know in the future. This can save you a ton of money on calling out a professional garage door tech every time your door starts to make strange sounds…because you will be able to assess if it is something you can handle on your own.

If your springs or hinges need lubrication that is something you can do on your own. We would recommend asking someone at your local hardware store for instructions and which lubricant is best, but the process is pretty simple. For anything else that might need to be done on your garage door we would suggest having a professional do it, you really don’t want to mess with a hundred pound door and crazy force being contained in the springs. Always better to be safe and make sure someone who is an expert is doing the meaty work.

Garage Door Openers

Staten Island Garage Door Openers

There are a lot of new cool technologies coming out every year–  Now we have smart everything: Smartwatches, smart appliances, smart phones, smart TVs, etc.

Maybe one day we’ll be smart, too.  I digress. . .  Now, on top of all of those, we have smart garage door openers.  These garage door openers, specifically those Chamberlain / Chamberlain Liftmaster openers with MyQ technology, are truly 21st century devices as they can be controlled using a smartphone app.  That should make you feel really cool, and negates the use of a garage door remote.

Now, however, you can take things with your smart garage door opener a step further.  Introducing the Pebble smartwatch, this little device is quickly taking over many simple tasks from you.  What’s nice, though, is that there are a myriad of apps available that can further augment the functionality of your watch.  There’s one in particular that we think is absolutely fantastic, and that’s called “HomeP.”  You can find it under the “Remote” section in the App library, and here’s what it can do for you:  HomeP makes it so that you not only don’t need a garage door remote to operate your smart garage door opener; now, you don’t even need a smartphone to do that.  Instead, like you’re James Bond just getting back from a trip to Q, you can point your watch at your garage door and operate it.  It’s a win – win; you get to seem awesome, you get convenience in the form of use of your smartwatch; and on top of all of that, you have another use for that smartwatch.

Summer Repairs

Staten Island Garage Door repairs – 24 Hrs

Summer is definitely in full swing. The heat can take a toll on not only your energy level but also on the functionality of your garage. That is why it is incredibly important to keep up on your garage door maintenance checks. You keep your body hydrated during the heat, you make sure to do check ups on your car over time, and you should never put your garage on the list of things you don’t check. So often we get emergency calls because people haven’t checked up on their garage door in years, they ignored all of the warning signs it was giving, and then they call us in a panic because the door won’t work and they need to get it open.

There is no reason you should have to call us in a panic. If you check the systems regularly and keep all the hinges and springs properly lubricated you can keep up on issues at the root of the cause when it becomes a problem and then you don’t run into a door that has taken too much stress and stops working altogether. We recommend having the door checked out at least once every six months, this is a good amount of time to make sure we catch any potential issues!

Garage door trouble


Staten Island Garage Door
Here’s a sort of pop quiz for you–  What do you consider to be the first sign of garage door trouble?

  • A:  A loud bang when you are operating your garage door.
  • B:  A weird squealing that is totally uncharacteristic of your garage door.
  • C:  A weird creaking noise whenever your garage door opens.
  • D:  All of the above.
  • E:  Your garage door signing you to sleep at night.

If you answered E, it might be time to lay off the LSD.  If you answered A – C, you’re not too familiar with garage door issues; and if you answered D, you’re right!  Any of those can be considered the first sign of garage door trouble, which is a very serious thing.

Why should I care about the first sign of garage door trouble?

The first sign of trouble could mean a couple of different things–  First, it could mean that something bigger is on the horizon in terms of garage door issues.  Example:  A loud bang when oeprating your garage door could mean that something is seriously wrong with your garage door opener, and issue that could easily lead to a very costly repair down the road.  Creaking noises when the garage door is opening could be indicative of an issue with your garage door springs.  Any number of things could be the cause.

So what should I do and why?

The key is, though, to take care of these issues as they come up.  A bang may mean something is out of place that could be easily fixed, but if it’s allowed to progress into something crazy, that means more money spent on repairs.  Calling us in when it’s just a bang could save you money.

Basically, the best thing to do as soon as something seems amiss is to call us so that we can take care of the issue right away.

Is it the springs?

Staten Island Garage Door Springs

If your door is opening unevenly then it is most likely that one of the springs is losing its tension. This puts you in a very precarious situation because if your spring snaps the door can fall without notice and it won’t care what or who is underneath it when it falls. So, if you start to notice your door moving a way that doesn’t seem normal it is your best option to call in a garage door professional to come take a look. This is something that can never be taken too seriously.

If your door is making odd sounds that you haven’t noticed before there is a possibility it could be the springs but it could also be a number of other issues which is why it is always best to contact a professional when something seems amiss with your door. The springs hold so much tension that if they snap it is scary business and so it is best to have us come out and take a look.

It is also best to have someone look at the door as soon as possible if you notice weird sounds or movements. This way we can catch the problem at the root and fix it before it causes even bigger problems with the door. Always best to be safe and proactive!

Weatherproofing Advantages

Staten Island Garage Doors – Weatherproofing Advantages

Right now, the weather sucks.  I’m just stating a fact here when I say that this is horrible.  It could be worse, though. . .  Luckily for me (and all of the other techs here), we have properly winter proofed our garage doors so that we’re reaping the benefits that this offers.  Unfortunately, there are many homeowners who have not undergone such tasks, and they are suffering more than they need to.

What exactly does weather / winter proofing offer for you?  Well, the very obvious, which is that it keeps your garage door safe from extreme fluctuations in temperature.  Some may wonder why this matters, until you realize that this has a dramatic effect on the temperature of your home if you have an attached garage.  By controlling the temperature of your garage, it helps reduce heating / cooling costs overall for your home, and makes you much more comfortable!
