Choose sectional over one panel doors
Garage door panel replacement will be more difficult and expensive if you have one panel doors. With sectional doors there's flexibility in choices. When some parts of the door are ruined, you only replace these ones. If you want to add more panels, you can simply hinge them and won't have to replace the entire door.
Clean the opener remote regularly
You should clean the plastic housing, buttons, and the battery compartment of the clicker with soft lint-free cloth which has been dipped in a little bit of white vinegar. You should rub the battery contacts gently and ensure that any traces of rust are removed completely. Use dry cloth to remove dust from the plastic cover of the infrared unit.
The pitfall of using WD 40
Grabbing the can of WD 40 you have lying around is like second nature when it comes to keeping metallic tools free of rust. However, when it comes to maintaining your garage door and its opener, you better keep your hand off that can. To be sure, this wonderful product does clean rust off. The thing is it also leaves a film of oil that prevents subsequent lubrication to properly take place thus increasing the likelihood of further wear and tear.
