Garage doors have become significant assets for homeowners. They provide security, safety, and convenience. They also enhance the value and curb appeal of a home. With a busy schedule and life, it can be easy to forget to have your Holbrook garage door routinely inspected and maintained. It's sometimes also more convenient to ignore small, or superficial malfunctions and damage. But doing so can result in larger, more expensive repairs, or replacements. There are things you can do yourself to help preserve your garage door's function and detect issues before they get worse.

Maintaining Your Garage Door

  1. Watch and Listen: Over time, you become familiar with your garage door’s function. The easiest way to detect an issue is to watch and listen. Paying attention to noises and movement can help you catch a problem before it becomes worse. If you hear screeching or see jolting, call the professionals at Above & Beyond Garage Doors to come take a look. 631-736-0369.
  2. Lubricate: It's important to keep the moving parts of your garage door, such as the pulleys, cables, roller brackets, and springs, lubricated. Use a garage door grease, WD-40, or a white lithium spray, to keep your door operating smoothly. This should be done every few months.
  3. Clean: Wipe down your garage door with an all purpose cleaner. Not only will this keep it looking fresh, but it will aid you in finding cracks, dents, rust, holes, warping, etc. This damage may seem superficial, but can eventually grow and lead to the costly replacement of your garage door.
  4. Tighten: Over time, it's inevitable for screws, nuts, bolts, and roller brackets to become loose. Using a socket wrench and screw driver to tighten these parts will help keep your garage door from literally falling apart.
  5. Test:
    • Auto-Reverse Sensors- Test your garage door's auto-reverse sensors. Place an object in the way of the sensors, then push the button to operate your door. The obstruction should cause your garage door to automatically reverse. If it doesn’t, make sure that there is no debris or dirt on your sensor's eyes or on the tracks. Once you've cleaned the sensors and removed debris, if your door still doesn’t reverse, the sensors could be misaligned.
    • Springs- Open your garage door halfway. If it refuses to budge, or if it crashes down, more than likely there's a problem with your door's springs. Call the professionals at Above & Beyond Garage Doors to take a look. 631-736-0369.
