Routine garage door maintenance is crucial for optimum performance each year. The amount and kind of maintenance a garage door needs varies from application to application. There are, however, some basic recommendations for getting the most out of your garage door.
What We Recommend for Garage Door Maintenance:
- Regular maintenance from a dealer/installer should be scheduled depending on the demands and use of your garage door. This should include an inspection as well as lubrication of torsion springs as well as all moving parts. All glass retainers should be checked to see that glazing materials, such as glass or panels, are securely held in place.
- Low headroom and high cycle garage doors require more maintenance than standard lift and standard cycle springs.
- Springs will relax as they age. This is typical for a garage door assembly and is not a defect with the springs. A garage door expert should be contacted if the springs require adjustments after being installed.
- Lift handles and step plates should be installed on every garage door. If missing or damaged they should be replaced to prevent injury. Never open a door by pushing it open with your hand. For manually operated garage doors, make sure to use the lift handle or rope.
