Garage Door Maintenance Tips

As the cold winter months are almost gone, every homeowner should ensure that their garage is in tip-top shape to welcome summer. Therefore, it is paramount to always maintain the garage door because regular maintenance extends the life span of the door and also helps it to sustain a comfortable garage temperature in the summer. 

Here are some of the garage door maintenance tips that will definitely pay-off later.

Inspect Your Garage Door

Garage door inspection is the first step to ensuring that everything works efficiently. You need to open and close the door manually or with a remote while checking out the cables and pulleys for any wear or unnecessary noise. The inspection should include hinges, supports and ball bearings.

Closely examine the springs whether they are intact and rust-free. If you identify anything that is not right in your garage door, you need to work on it as soon as possible. Call professional garage door technicians from Bob's Advance Garage Doors, and we will arrive at your location within the shortest time possible. Our experts will bring you up to speed before and during the process and also do a thorough evaluation of the door, fix any defects, and replace parts that are faulty.

Lubricate the Hardware

Winter’s icy conditions and cold weather reduces the ability of the garage door components to move properly. This can wreak havoc on moving hardware and may lead to premature metal-on-metal death. 

On the other hand, the heat during summer can cause the melting of adhesives which may lead to many safety concerns on your garage door. Therefore, proper lubrication and alignment of your garage doors moving parts is a sure way to keep your garage door running smoothly throughout the summer.

However, it is not advisable to use grease during the lubrication process. And you should also avoid using oils like WD-40 while lubricating the door. Our experts recommend you use oil and specific lubricants designed only for garage doors.

Wash the Garage Door and Apply New Paint

Most garages are extremely filthy because it is the space most homeowners store tools and other miscellaneous items. The dirt from those items may directly impact the garage door. It’s vital you clean your garage door to remove grease, caulk, mildew and dirt.

We also recommend you repaint the garage door to make it stand out and improve the curb appeal of your home.

Insulate and Reinforce Your Garage Door

Though garage door insulation is highly beneficial during the winter months, it helps to regulate heat during summer. It is also a good idea to reinforce your garage door to protect it from hurricanes and other extreme weather conditions.
