Here you can find excellent tips about different things you can do to make sure your garage door stays in a good condition. The best way to extend the longevity of this system is to learn what you can about it and take the necessary steps to reduce the potential risks involved.
Make sure the motor is running smoothly
Your garage door opener has the important role of opening and closing your door on demand. For this reason it is important to ensure that its motor is doing its job properly. Listen to the sound it makes each time you open and close your door. This is one of the simplest ways to detect anything that may become an issue later on.
Lubricate anything that moves
Nothing wears out metal more than running it against other metals. Moving parts of your garage door will need to be properly lubricated to minimize friction-based wear and tear. Regular lubrication ill extend the lifespan of your door and save you a lot of money in the long run.
Inspect the hinges regularly
Check them carefully on all sides. The worn sections are thinner and may be dented or chipped as well. Pay close attention to the cylinders where the roller stems sit. They should be perfectly round. If they are oval, the hinges have to be replaced. Contact our team to get this done safely and quickly.
Add a second torsion spring
Most residential garage door systems have one torsion spring but the experts of our service provider in Casa Grande would recommend installing a second one, especially if the door panel is pretty heavy. It will give an extra support and the opener won't wear out fast.
