Time for your monthly maintenance!

Here are some things you can do in between our regular maintenance and service calls to keep your door functioning properly:

  1. Give all rollers, hinges, roller tracks, hinges, and decent amount of penetrating solvent like WD-40 or a citrus-based solvent.
  2. Wipe everything clean, then apply a light oil, such as 3-in-1 lubricant, to the same parts.
  3. Lubricate the pulleys on extension-spring openers and the bearings on torsion-spring openers.
  4. Remove any rust with steel wool. Wipe all parts clean.
  5. If your garage door opener is operated by a chain or drive screw, apply the same lubricant to the full length.
  6. Check any weatherstripping along the sides of the doors. Adjust it if it is jamming against the sides, and have it replaced if necessary.
  7. If your garage door is wood and it doesn't have bottom weatherstripping, make sure it has been sealed or painted. Touch up as needed, and consider adding weatherstripping.

What are the most common door types?

The most common types of garage doors are: Retractable, Canopy Side, and Hinged Sectional Retractable. Where limited space in your driveway is an issue, sectional garage doors are the right choice. They open and shut vertically, allowing cars to park very close to the door without keeping it from opening. Among the wide variety of designs, the most popular garage doors are sectional, upward acting, and self storing.
