Are you wondering about the safety of your garage doors?
The most important thing is to go to your house and change the access code to ensure that no one will be able to use the old device to get inside. Then you need to get a replacement remote. Preventative measures should be taken as well. Keep the device in a designated compartment of your bag. Do not leave it in the car.
There are different types of weather seals and some are extra supported since they are inserted in retainers. There are some differences among top/side and bottom seals and although there are some brush-like seals, most of them are made of vinyl or rubber. The advantage of having retainers is that weather seals can be changed easily.
If you were planning to replace the existing garage door due to its old age anyhow, it's certainly a good idea to do it as soon as possible. Getting an insulated garage door would mean that your energy bills will be reduced.
When the garage door is sagging and seriously damaged or rust has expanded, garage door replacement will be the only solution to avoid safety problems and dysfunctional mechanisms. The experts of our repair company in Altadena remind you that vulnerable doors are a potential hazard.
