It’s hard to distinguish among garage door parts in terms of their importance. We often talk about springs and electric openers and disregard the other parts, especially the tiny hardware. Does that mean they’re of less value? Quite the contrary! The truth is that all component parts are invaluable and, therefore, their maintenance and the frequency of their inspections should be relative.
There are many reasons why we need strong garage doors and why we shouldn’t invest money in cheap and unreliable materials. Most definitely, the power of our overhead door is subject to the local conditions of our home in terms of climate, expectations, neighborhood or use. The truth is that special conditions require special garage door construction and preparation.
