Every year you will inevitably have a laundry list of items that you will need to inspect, repair, or replace around your home in order to get ready for the next year. This is no different when it comes to your garage door. If you stick to the three points below you will never forget the maintenance of one of the most important pieces of your home; the garage door.
- Cables & Rollers: Most homeowners do not think about these items until they are broken. The cables can warp and even break when they get to cold from the elements. When this happens it will cause severe safety hazards. The rollers, hinges, and tracks need to be oiled at least four times a year and free of debris at all times.
- Seal: The weather seal or weather strip on the bottom of your garage door does more than keep out the elements. It keeps out rodents as well. When this seal begins to deteriorate your home will also lose energy.
- Routine Maintenance: Cleaning the clearance of the door is important before, during, and after a snow fall. This ensures that it will still function properly when the snow becomes deeper. Make certain to remove the grime and dirt that accumulate on the rolling tracks throughout the months. Use grease to lubricate the tracks of the garage door so it can move smoothly and easily.
