Are you thinking about performing your own GARAGE DOOR MAINTENANCE?
Let's review some important parts on your garage door so you understand how they work and the best way to perform the service, which ultimately will prolong the life of your garage door and garage door opener.
Rollers- These are critical for smooth opening and closing of the garage door. They come in a variety of sizes as well as the materials they are made out of. Some have ball bearings, these are the higher quality ones. How long do they last? The normal lifespan is around 75,000 life cycles, but a few thing will make them age faster.
1- not being lubricated often. Make sure you lubricate your rollers with white grease once a month.
2- your garage door opener setting is not correct.- This puts extra strain on the rollers.
3- your garage door not properly aligned, which stresses the rollers.
Garage Door Hinges-Good news is that hinges rarely break and will last a long time if you take the time to lubricate them.Garage door hinges are numbered according to their offset and they do need to be installed correctly, so keep this in mind if your garage door hinges ever need to be replaced. Your best bet is to lubricate them monthly as it also reduces the noise when the garage door is being operated.
