There are a lot of things you can do to keep your garage door in an optimal working condition. Check out the following tips to learn some valuable advice. Contact our team if you're looking for more useful information.
Don't be afraid to add a little color to your garage door
Not all aspects of your home's exterior need to blend into each other and your garage door is one thing that can look great with a bold, contrasting color. Whether you are repainting your old garage door, or ordering a new one, consider adding a little splash of color to make your house "pop".
Lubricate the garage door rollers
Get a lubricant that you can spray. Stand right next to the track and lift your hand up so that you can spray the rollers. Spray the wheels just a bit. Thanks to the rolling movement, the lubricant will spread to the stems. Remember that this type applies only to all-steel rollers and not to nylon ones.
Follow a professional maintenance schedule
We always recommend a regular maintenance schedule for your garage door system. In the long run, this will help to keep your system working well for longer - there might be underlying issues that you haven't noticed but might be spotted during a professional service appointment. This is even more important for those owners who do not regularly maintain and take care of their garage door themselves.
