Avoid getting aluminum doors
There's a reason why aluminum garage door prices are lower than other materials. Aluminum is very soft and, thus, it dents easily. That means your door won't be very strong and resistant to fierce weather and you'll often need repairs according to the experts of our company in Bell.
Prefer sectional instead of one-panel doors
If you are considering getting an overhead door or even sliding garage doors, make sure to get sectional doors because they are more convenient during replacement. Sectional garage doors consist of several horizontal panels, which are hinged to each other and are replaced individually.
Diagnosing sectional garage doors
The process that is recommended by our experts in Bell is relatively straightforward. Put the entire structure on the ground and ensure that there are no parts lying about. Ensure that it opens and closes smoothly without any creaks. Sometimes it is a question of an obstacle that is leaning on one of the parts.
Undertake some maintenance activities periodically
In order to keep your garage door in good working conditions all year round, you should undertake some maintenance activities. Do not use it excessively, clean it often and lubricate its moving parts periodically. Furthermore, in order to have it checked by a professional, you can ask experts at Garage Door Repair Bell for help.
Clean the panels thoroughly twice a year
If you have a steel garage door, you must use household detergent dissolved in water and a soft sponge. Remember to rinse the panels completely, using clean water and a sponge. If you have wood panels, clean them with damp soft cloth. For stubborn dirt, use a little bit of cleaner which is safe for wood.
