Tip 9: Dented Doors

When your garage door is dented, no matter how small it is and even if the door seems to be working normally and properly, you should at least have a professional person come out and look at the door, even if it is just for a quick inspection.  It is entirely possible that your door can still be used as it was used before, it is still the safest option to have someone look at it, because you do not want something to accidentally break while the door is moving.  This will just cost a lot more than having a professional simply take a look at the door.

Tip 8: Test The Reverse Mechanism

To test the reverse mechanism of your garage door, it is the safest to use a paper towel roll, because they are soft and they are not strong enough to hold up any door, not even a doggy door, and it is a good way to find any obstruction that does not offer a lot of resistance.  Just put the roll in the threshold of the garage door, and push the button to close it.  When it touches the roll, the mechanism should lift up again and the door should open.  As such, the paper towel roll should not be damaged, or at least not a lot.
