Is Your Garage In Good Health?
Start By Pulling The Red String

That red string dangling from your garage door isn't there just for decoration or even emergency. Believe it or not, it has a very important purpose.
The red emergency cord on your garage door opener can help you determine the health of your garage door. Simply follow these few steps!

STEP 1: Pull the cord. The garage door should hardly move is any at all

STEP 2: Lift the door to half way. If the door was easy to lift, CONGRATS! Your door is healthy! If it was difficult to lift, or would not stay at half way, then there is something seriously wrong

STEP 3: Lift the door a foot or two more. If it stays, put at that point, CONGRATS! Your door is healthy. If it doesn't stay put, then there could be something seriously wrong.

For more tips and how to check the full health of your garage door at home, give the Garage Doctor a call today!
