Open The Garage Door Manually

It is important to test the emergency release on your garage door. In order to do this, simply pull the red chord that hangs from the track. Once you release the door, you should open it manually to see if there are any issues with opening the door.

To determine if the tension of the springs are still in good shape, open the door halfway. If the door stays in place, then the springs are working properly. However, if the door closes, then the springs should be replaced.

Lubricate The Mechanical Parts

Your garage door is made up of many mechanical parts. All of these parts need to be lubricated to keep rust damage from occurring. Even if you have rust-resistant parts, it is best to lubricate to allow the door to move freely.

To lubricate your assembly, use a ladder to reach. You will need to be able to spray the:

Be sure to spray all of the parts of the door that move when you open or close it. Once you give a good coat on the assembly, open and close the door so that it will spread the lubrication around.

It is possible that you will need to do this more than once a year, but make it a point to spray at least once a year. If you have parts that are metal, it can help the parts last longer.

Check Springs, Cables, Tracks

While you are lubricating the assembly, look over all of the working parts. Look for:

  • Broken parts
  • Bent tracks
  • Gaps in springs
  • Rust
  • Busted roller drums

If you see any parts that need to be repaired or replaced, it is best to take care of them right away. When parts wear out, it can cause the entire assembly to work improperly. Over time, the broken pieces can cause more damage.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
