How Often Should You Have Your Garage Doors Serviced?
At G & G Garage Door, we suggest that you have your garage door systems serviced every six months. We provide a 21-Point inspection of all of your garaged door system’s components. We then clean all of your garage door’s parts and tighten any fasteners that have become loosened over time. As we perform this inspection, we take note of any component that may be faulty or may soon become faulty and then make recommendations for the necessary repairs. Of course, we do not make the repairs to your garage door until authorized by you.
Can Garage Door Maintenance Prevent Repairs?
Your garage door is the heaviest moving part of your home and should be considered an investment. Having a certified garage door technician provide maintenance on your garage door regularly, is a good investment and can help you to delay or put off entirely future repairs. During regular maintenance, we scrutinize every component of your garage door to ensure smooth operation. So, yes, regular garage door maintenance and repairs can help you avoid costly repairs or replacements down the road.
Should I Lubricate My Garage Door Parts?
Yes, lubrication can go a long way toward increasing the life of your garage door parts. But, not all lubricants are the same. We suggest you use a silicone spray as it does not attract dust and will not gum up. You’ll want to clean the components first with a towel and then begin by spraying the tracks, springs, hinges, and rollers. After you have lubricated everything thoroughly, run the garage door up and down 3 or 4 times and note how it operates. If after the lubrication process, you still hear unusual noises or see that the operation is not as it should be, contact G & G Garage Door for service.
