Garage door safety

Chances are, you use your home’s garage door pretty much every day. But when was the last time you checked to see if it’s working properly and safely?

You’ll want to test your door monthly by placing a 2-by-4 piece of wood flat on the garage floor under the path of your door. If the door does not automatically reverse when it hits or gets near the 2-by-4, the opener must be adjusted or repaired.
