Having an Automated garage door is a great convenience, but it requires regular maintenance to keep it working properly. Maintaining your sectional or up-and-over door can help ensure your safety and also improve its longevity. In this article, we’re going to provide you with some easy tips for maintaining your automated garage door so that you can continue using it safely and for years to come.

To summarize what has been said before, there are generally two types of garage doors for residential environments:

Up-and-over doors

They are composed of a single rigid panel fixed on two lateral steel axes which, thanks to counterweights, allow the opening or at least the balanced movement of the door.

Note that up-and-over garage doors take up more space and are therefore recommended especially when adding a gate.

Sectional doors

The main characteristic of sectional doors is their opening: the curtain moves along tracks located in the ceiling with an upward opening, without protruding outside.

The advantage of this solution is the reduction of the space required when opening, and it is fundamentally more elegant and discreet.

When choosing the motor for sectional or up-and-over doors, the parameter to take into account, in addition to the type of garage door and its dimensions, is the space available above and below the door so as not to hinder the movement.
