Regular Maintenance Tips For Your New Garage Door

  • Regularly maintaining your new garage door will
    help you to prevent problems from occurring such
    as the rollers becoming worn, the springs being
    damaged or the hardware malfunctioning. Keep on
    top of these problems and your call outs to a
    professional garage repairman should be less
    frequent. Alternatively, you could monitor the
    health of your garage door to the best of your
    ability after its fitted, and then schedule
    regular, 6 monthly assessments from a
    professional.
  • Here are some top tips for maintaining your new
    garage door
  • Take care of the springs or chains
  • The springs of your new garage door, whether
    theyre torsion or extension, will gradually rust
    if theyre not kept well lubricated.

3
  • Dont use a common household product such as
    WD-40 since it wont provide your springs with
    the long-term protection they require. Silicone
    lubricants or lithium grease are among the best
    products for keeping your garage doors well
    oiled, but if youre unsure of what to use, speak
    to a professional.
  • Grease your garage door springs every year or
    have a garage door professional do it as part of
    their bi-annual service.
  • If your garage door operates using a chain-drive
    system, then this will also need to be well
    greased along with any connections, hinges and
    bearings.

  • Check the safety sensor on your new garage door
  • Since the sensor is an important safety element
    of your garage door, its essential that its
    functioning properly. The sensor is also a legal
    requirement in most states, so to have it working
    as it should, is important from a legal
    standpoint, too, and becomes especially pertinent
    should someone have an accident involving your
    garage door.
  • Listen out for any squeaks or unusual sounds
  • A garage door that squeaks when in use or makes a
    grinding sound, may well have developed a fault
    or become unbalanced, and if you suspect your
    door may be damaged in any way,

  • you should get it checked over by a professional
    garage repairman.
  • Lubricate and clean the tracks and rollers
  • No matter how well you maintain your door, the
    tracks and rollers will get a little grubby,
    making cleaning them a vital aspect of garage
    maintenance that you can carry out every so
    often. Lubricating the tracks and rollers also
    helps to ensure that the door operates smoothly,
    but if youre unsure about cleaning and greasing
    these parts, then simply have a professional come
    and do it for you.

  • Keep an eye on the cables
  • The torsion cables on your garage door come under
    a lot of pressure, making them susceptible to
    damage such as rust or fraying. Inspect your
    cables to check for any signs of wear and tear,
    and if you spot a problem, get if fixed
    professionally before it gets any worse or even
    snaps.
  • Repairing a broken garage door can be costly, so
    it makes sound financial sense to have it
    assessed by a professional at least twice a year
    to prevent any huge repair bills or injuries from
    being caused to you or anyone else, if the door
    is faulty.
