Check all the nuts and bolts
Sometimes all your garage door needs is a little bit of attention. Every month or so, you should check all the nuts, bolts and screws and make sure they are all nice and tight. This simple maintenance work can help keep everything in place which will eventually keep repair costs down to a minimum.
Get both springs replaced at the same time
Extension springs usually have a life expectancy of 5,000 cycles on average, with each cycle representing one full opening and closing of the door. These components are under tremendous tension, which can cause them to wear out over time. When one of them breaks professional spring replacement is be required. We recommend getting both of these components replaced at the same time. If one reached its breaking point, the other one can't be too far behind, and the risks involved in an unexpected release of tension are too dangerous.
Make sure to regularly lubricate your garage door parts
There are several parts of your garage door that can benefit from being lubricated every once in a while. Torsion springs, for example, as well as steel rollers, will work much more smoothly and quietly afterwards. Your opener's drive-system can also benefit from such a treatment.
