    It's best to check the garage door opener and its parts often. Make sure the wires are okay and well connected to the terminals at the unit.

  • What manufacturers should I trust?

    The biggest ones! Manufacturers like Clopay, Amarr or Stanley have a long tradition in the production of garage doors and parts.

    The lengths of vertical and horizontal garage door tracks will depend on the garage door system and the size of the door. For example, high-lift systems would need longer vertical tracks.
