Garage Door Care
With proper care and upkeep, the lifespan of your door can be extended. We suggest the following care for your door.
Every 6 Months
Wash the door and windows with a mild soap (such as car wash soap or dishwashing soap) and water. Wash both interior and exterior. Rinse thoroughly. Do not use harsh or abrasive detergents. Lubricate track and hinges with a silicone or Teflon-based spray. Do not use WD-40® or grease. Then open and close the door to distribute the lubricant.
Every 12 Months
Inspect springs and hardware for signs of wear. Avoid any contact with the torsion springs as they are under extreme tension. If you suspect any problems, call us to schedule an appointment as a highly trained professional should look at the springs.
Clean off road salt from interior and exterior surfaces. Use a mild soap (such as car wash soap or dishwashing soap) and water. Rinse thoroughly. Do not use harsh or abrasive detergents. If surface rust appears, immediately contact us for inspection and repair options.
