Want to know more about your garage door system and how it works? This FAQ page covers some of the different questions that we’ve been asked over the years. Take a look at the answers provided below to learn lots of useful information about your door.
How do garage door remote controls work?
In older models, a small code switch is used to open and close the door. Some newer remotes use a rolling code technology that change the door code each time the remote is pressed, making it more secure. This all happens because the control sends a radio frequency to the opener requesting the door to go up or down.
What does the cost of a garage door primarily depend on?
There are many factors that contribute to the overall cost of a garage door, but major parts like the opener, the mechanism (chain, screw, belt), and the material of the door (aluminum, wood, etc.) are likely to contribute significantly.
Why does my door reverse when I try to close it?
Garage doors usually reverse when the opener detects an obstruction in the way of the door. As a first step, it is a good idea to make sure the sensors are clean and the door is free from clutter. It may also be a good idea to check the tracks for dents, as this might also prevent the door from coming down.
