Check out your garage door

Posted By MyGuy || 7-May-2012

Did you know that the experts recommend that you do a spring and fall maintenance on your garage doors? A good preventative maintenance strategy is to apply any light weight oil (Lithium Grease Spray or purchase GDL from your garage door company) to the moving parts of the garage door – the rollers and hinges – annually. There are end hinges with rollers, which hold the rollers in the track, as well as center hinges. Lubricate all pivot points to keep the door running smoothly.

Note: While lubricating, you should also check the garage door hardware parts. With repeated use, the hardware on the garage door will tend to loosen over time. This hardware holds a lot of heavy weight (the door), so if you notice any loose screws, bolts or nuts, contact your garage door company prior to tightening any hardware.

Garage door maintenance is often needed on the door opener. If your garage door opener is operated by a chain or drive screw, apply the same lubricant to the full length of the operator rail.
