How To Pick The Best Garage Door

These three materials are strong, durable and each has its unique benefits at various price points. What your new garage door is made of will determine its appearance, how long your door will last, its durability, and how much annual maintenance it will require. In order to pick the perfect fit for your home or business, we help our customers make responsible choices so they can be secure in knowing they have received the best value available.
Maintaining Your Garage Door System
Quality Door Inc. openers and garage doors are built with longevity in mind. By performing a few routine tasks, you can help ensure your garage door system stays safe and stands the test of time. One important part of garage door system routine maintenance is to make sure the photo-eyes have not gone out of alignment. The photo-eyes are the infrared sensors which monitor whether the space at the bottom of your garage door is clear. When these sensors are not lined up properly they will keep your door from closing. Make sure to occasionally check your photo-eyes’ alignment to ensure they are correctly detecting obstructions to keep your garage door safe and operating properly.
