Everyone likes a solid piece of advice here and then. We created this page to offer our customers some useful and informative tips that can help them get the most 'mileage' they can out of their garage door system. Check out our suggestions below and give us a call if you need some additional help.
Listen For Strange Noises
If you start hearing noises coming from your garage door, this is a sure sign that something is wrong. Increased noise can indicate a certain component needs to be repaired or replaced, because when a garage door is running smoothly it will do so quietly. Be vigilant and listen for crunching, grating, grinding, or squealing.
Make sure your garage door is properly lubricated
In order to really get the most out of your automatic system, and to ensure it's able to last for a very long time, you'll want to apply some lubrication to its various moving metal parts. Torsion springs and metal rollers are the first on the list, and the bearing and hinges are right behind them. Make sure NOT to lubricate the tracks, though, as this could cause them to become sticky and clogged with dirt and dust.
Follow Your garage door's warranty conditions
It is absolutely imperative that homeowners read their owner's manual and all the warranty clauses mentioned in it. This will ensure that they do not accidentally breach the terms and conditions. Even things that may appear minor may contrast with these stipulations, so you should make sure that you don't unintentionally void your door's warranty while conducting a little maintenance.
