November 27, 2017 Garden AHS 0

A garage door protects your home’s parking area and provides security to your vehicles and personal belongings. That’s why it’s important to maintain your garage door properly. Here are some preventive maintenance tips to keep your garage door in good condition: Check the rollers Check if the roller brackets are attached to the cable system. If not, make some adjustments by removing and reinstalling them. If there are chips or cracks, replace them immediately. To keep your rollers in good condition, check them twice a year and replace them every seven years. Grease the moving parts Apply oil or grease to the chain or screw of the door opener as well as the overhead springs. Do the same thing with the hinges, rollers, tracks, and latches. Bearing and pulleys should also be greased.

Replace the weather seal strip Inspect the strip that seals the door for signs of damage. This material covers the joints of the door to keep rain, snow, and cold air from getting into the garage. A crack means it has to be replaced with a new one as soon as possible to keep these elements out of your home.
