Maintenance of your Garage Doors

Maintaining a garage door is often overlooked, with many waiting until something goes wrong before calling someone to repair it. Waiting for this to happen is costly and can also reduce the garage door’s life.  We recommend regular maintenance to ensure it stays in tip-top condition longer.

Metal and steel doors accumulate dirt over time by washing it once or twice a year; you can ensure that it stays in excellent working order. If you live near the coast, we recommend cleaning more regularly as the salt can corrode the metal.

Lubricate the moving parts of the door every 3-6 months to ensure a smooth operation.

We also recommend a yearly maintenance visit by a professional.  During these visits, they can identify any potential problems before they become severe and expensive to fix.

If you have an automatic garage door, wipe the sensor eye regularly.
