What should I use to clean my wooden garage door?
Never use powerful detergents or strong abrasive cleaning products. These can cause damage to the wood and the quality of its surface. In most cases, a simple mix of warm water and mild soap can get the job done. It’s best not to take the risk of using anything stronger before consulting with your owner's manual.
Why is the opener working even though I didn't press any button?
According to our experts, the most common cause of this problem is a short-circuit in the remote control or the wall-mounted button. Inspection and testing will reveal which is the faulty part. In rare cases, signal interference could be the cause. This is more likely to happen in areas close to military bases and airfields. If you need anything replaced, be sure to contact us right away.
What is the backroom?
Backroom is referred to as the distance from the door to the back wall of the garage. The ideal amount of backroom for proper garage door installation is the door’s height plus 18 inches, though you might need more if you'd like to get an opener installed as well. Our experts can help you figure out exactly how much backroom you need.
