When it comes to garage door systems, it can be easy for people to make mistakes with them. While most damages are caused by natural occurrences like harsh weather or gradual wear and tea, some garage door damage can sometimes have a human culprit. Here at Coast 2 Coast Garage Door, your source for Florida garage door installation and repair, we love helping homeowners with their garage doors whenever they need us. We also love giving advice that can minimize damage and expenses to homeowners! Today we’ve got 3 things you should try to avoid with your garage door.

  1.  If you suspect that there is something wrong with your garage door, act as soon as possible. Don’t wait and don’t neglect. Every month we come across a few cases where a small repair turned into a larger job because the homeowner waited too long.
  2.  Don’t drive in to or out of your garage when the door is still moving. This happens all too often and causes damage in many homes in the Florida area. Unfortunately people hit their garage doors with the top of their cars every month.
  3. Make sure that nothing blocks the door’s way before closing the garage door. Many doors are designed to move all the way up to the open position if something blocked their way on the way down. While moving back up the door can scratch your car or cause some other damage. So before closing it, spend a second to make sure that nothing stands in its way.
