Maintenance Tips – Balance is KEY
Test the Door Balance
If your garage door is not properly balanced, the garage door opener will have to work harder, and it won’t last as long. The door should be so well balanced by its springs that only a few pounds of force are necessary to lift it. Test this by pulling the release handle on the automatic opener, then manually lift the door so it is about halfway open. The door should remain in place without your help. If it doesn’t, the door is improperly balanced or the springs are growing old and worn. Call the professionals at Scandia Doors for help with springs.
