How do I Maintain My Garage Door?

We recommend that you perform general maintenance on your garage door on a yearly basis if not more. The team here at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair offers maintenance services in order to help you extend the life of your equipment. Proper maintenance will give you longer lasting life and keep your family safe.

Here are the things you need to do to maintain your door:

Apply Proper Lubrication

In order for your door to work properly, you need to apply a garage door lubricant to the tracks and rollers. It is important that you choose a formula that is designed for garage doors. Many homeowners will use WD-40 or grease, but these two types of lubricants can mess up your system.

Visually Inspect The Parts

Make sure you look over every part of your garage door. Look at the tracks, rollers, springs, opener, and more. You are looking for worn out parts or rust. Anything that looks old should be replaced.

Tighten Screws and Bolts

Go over your garage door and tighten all screws and bolts. You may be surprised that your door is not as noisy after you do this basic maintenance. Over the course of time, the door can cause the screws to loosen up.

Test The Reverse Mechanism

Your garage door should have a reverse mechanism in place for the safety of your family. There are two sensors that are positioned at the bottom of your door. When the line is broken, it will cause the door to open up.

In order to test this feature, place a trash can under the door. Go ahead and close it. If your sensors are working the right way, it should cause the door to open back up.

Inspect Weatherstripping and Replace It

One of the ways to keep your garage insulated is to have weatherstripping at the bottom of the door. This piece is made from rubber and will wear out. If you notice the rubber has cracked or dried out, then you should replace the entire piece.

Clean Your Garage Door

It is a good idea to clean the inside and outside of your door on occasion. Make sure you use a mild cleaner and avoid rubbing and scrubbing the finish. A soft cloth should be enough to wipe off the dirt and grime that is on the outside. Do not use a pressure washer without checking with a professional. Not all materials stand up to pressure washers.

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.
