Garage Door Repair To Avoid Dangers of Older Units, Rochester, New York

While it’s easy to underestimate the value of a good garage door, they aren’t just there for curb appeal. Garage doors also provide security and can increase the value of your property, so if you’re stuck with an older door, you might want to consider garage door repair or replacement. For over 30 years, homeowners in Rochester, NY, have relied on the experienced professionals at Tracey Door Co. for garage door repair and installation services.

Here, the garage door experts at Tracey Door Co. share the three real dangers of old garage doors:

  • Springs: The springs of a garage door operate under a lot of tension, especially considering garage doors can weigh more than 300 pounds. If even one of the springs is faulty, the garage door becomes a danger to anyone standing underneath or near it. The door can slam down quickly and cause injury to people and vehicles.Garage Door Repair
  • Wear & Tear: As with anything, as a garage door gets older parts get froze up, nuts and bolts get loose, and it won’t work as well as it used to. Very old doors should be replaced especially if they have been giving you trouble. The newer steel doors should have a routine maintenance every year or two to assure that everything is in proper working order. This will make your door last much longer.
  • Outdated Technology: If you have an older garage door opener, it could become defective if new technology interferes with it. Older technology is also not as safe as newer, more updated security systems. Units that do not have the infra red safety beams are very dangerous as children and pets can be injured or worse. Upgrading your unit will help protect you from any system defects.
