After getting a new garage door installed, the last thing you want to do is damage it by neglecting it. Fortunately, you can extend the life of your garage door by following a few simple garage door maintenance tips that won’t cost you an arm and a leg.

Inspect Your Garage Door

Once your garage door is up and operating as it should, you must monitor it. At Door Power, we install your garage door professionally, but over time, things can happen. Debris can cause problems with your track and damage to your rollers can prevent your door from opening. You can reduce the instance of damaging your garage door by having your door checked by our team periodically.

Perform a Monthly Mechanism Test

You assume your door will perform as it should, opening and closing when you press the remote. However, sometimes there are manufacturer defects that can affect your door. To ensure your door works as expected continually, perform monthly tests. Make sure your door opens and closes, recognizes when something is in the way, and alerts you when necessary.

Get Your Garage Door Lubricated

If you haven’t noticed, your door weighs a lot. The rails and tracks can get worn lifting your door on a regular basis. To ensure that your rollers and tracks remain optimal, you should have your rollers, hinges, and track lubricated twice a year. A member of our team is happy to lubricate your doors. Simply give us a call to make an appointment.

Clean Your Garage Door

Much like your car, you need to wash your garage door at least once a year to ensure the door looks up to par. Experts suggest washing your door more often if you live in a climate that has salt content in the air. You should follow your manufacturer’s suggestions for cleaning your garage door to ensure you don’t strip away the paint.
