Homeowners often take their garage doors for granted when they are still working fine. It is only when the doors are having troubles that we notice them.
This practice is problematic for once the garage doors are not in their proper conditions, the security of one’s home is placed on the line. And who wouldn’t want that?
Maintenance is the key to the upkeep of your garage doors. It plays a lot in keeping your doors in proper working condition. Here are some garage door maintenance tips that can help you:
- Lubricate moving parts. Lubrication is the first line of defense in any set of garage door maintenance tactics. You should apply penetrating oil to every roller and hinge in your door at least once a year.
- Tighten everything. Say no to loose ends. Make sure that screws, bolts, and nuts are all tight so that the door will not fall out of adjustment.
- Prevent binding. Tracks must be in correct alignment to effectively guide the rollers. If any of the two tracks of your garage door are unadjusted or misaligned, you are in for a big problem. Seek professional help to realign your garage door tracks.
As they say, prevention is better than cure. Rather than hassle yourself with garage door repair, invest on quality garage door maintenance services. Regular checkups can make your door last a lifetime.
