How to Lubricate Your Noisy Garage Door

The door of a garage is an important element that helps secure the valuables and investments taking up residence in the garage. A garage door, however, can become a nuisance when its operation starts to bring forth noise. Unfortunately, some garage door owners learn to live with the noise. They think the screams and moans are permanent, so they do nothing about it.

Fortunately, a garage door that makes a racket when it closes and opens can be corrected. In this blog, the garage door repair team at Bob's Advance Garage Doors provides how to lubricate and make quieter a loud garage door.

Lubricate the Loud Garage Door

Several parts of a garage door need to stay greased. These areas include the springs, hinges, and rollers. Follow the instructions below to lubricate the areas that need lubrication.

Springs: Use a silicone spray or a white lithium spray to grease up the garage torsion springs. Don’t apply too much lube to prevent excess lube from dripping out, and be sure to wipe off any excess.

Hinges: Add lube to steel hinges where the door pivots. Don’t lubricate plastic hinges as lube can break them down over time.

Rollers: Spray enough lubricant into metal rollers and wipe off the excess that could be dripping on the garage floor. For garage door rollers with nylon wheels, only lubricate the bearings without letting any spray get on the nylon itself.

Note: A garage door track needs not to be sprayed. Spraying a lube into the track will lead to accumulation of particles. Instead, use a rag to clean the buildup that is preventing gentle glide of the door.

After lubricating all these parts, open and close the garage door some times to even out the lube’s distribution.

Other Causes of Loud Garage Doors

If a garage door still makes a lot of sound after greasing the parts that need lubrication, other problems causing the noises could be loose hardware or worn rollers. First, inspect the bolts and nuts on the garage door track and have loosened ones tightened. Also, check that the rollers spin freely on the shaft. If the rollers wiggle or have a play in them, it’s time to replace the rollers.

Replacing Damaged Rollers

If you have bad rollers, you can change them yourself or use the help of a garage door repair team. For the DIY route, first unbolt the hinge and then tilt the roller off the door track. Take the bad rollers to a hardware store in order to get the right replacement. Install the rollers and reinstall the hinge as well.
