Preventive Maintenance Tips for Garage Door Owners

It’s easy to overlook some red flags about your garage door functionality. After all, it closes, opens, and does its job. However, such negligence could back-fire anytime soon. As one of the largest moving hardware in your home, the system can gradually fail due to multiple uses. 

To keep your overhead door operating smoothly for years to come, here are five maintenance tips and actions to take by homeowners.

Take Garage Door Inspection as a Priority

Every time you open or close your garage door, observe if it moves smoothly or jerkily. Imbalanced movement can arise from several conditions including misaligned rollers. In this case, there is not much you can do. You’ll need to reach out to a garage door  technician for help.

Have you noticed that the door makes scraping or grinding noises when in operation? This and even more irregularities are what you need to look for. If the door is making unusual or odd sounds, the right preventive measure is to let a garage door look into the issue so it wouldn’t escalate to a major problem.  

Test for Balance

The balance of your garage door is something you need to inspect frequently. To do this, first disconnect the garage door opener from the door by pulling down the red handle on the emergency release. Next, lift the door halfway and release. A properly balanced garage door should stay in place when you let go of it.

If the door raises or lowers after every release, then there could be a problem with the door springs. In this case, the adjustment or replacement of the springs should be left for the pros. For immediate help, Bob's Advance Garage Doors will be glad to put their team to work for you.

Replace Damaged Weatherstripping

To keep weather elements out of your garage, it’s important to periodically check the state of the door’s weather seal. When brittle or cracked, the bottom edge seal of your garage door must be replaced. Prompt replacement will prevent puddles from forming in your garage and water damage to items kept in there. 

During the winter season, you’ll also save on heating costs with the insulation the weather seal strip provides.

Lubricate Necessary Parts

Garage door lubricants prevent corrosion and buildup of grime and dust in which are elements that can make your garage door become squeaky. Use white lithium grease on areas such as the opener’s chain or screw and coat the overhead springs with a spray lubricant. Making sure the door stays lubricated will help the system operate seamlessly for years.

Make Your Door Shine

Home or business owners with wooden garage doors should keep an eye out for water damage and warp. It’s time to contact a garage door in the event that the door becomes bent out of position. Steel garage doors, on the other hand, are susceptible to rust and paint peeling. To keep a rusty door shining, it should be sanded, primed, and painted.
