If you're looking for some helpful advice, we got you covered. The following tips will offer you various useful suggestions on how to care for your automatic garage door system and make sure that it's able to stay efficient and functional for a long time.
Temperature changes are not ideal for wooden garage doors
Wooden garage doors may not be a great option for homes or properties where surrounding temperatures regularly shift, because wood tends to expand or contract with temperature variations. Loosening or tightening is likely to happen as the door panel, frame, and other wooden parts expand or contract relatively. As a result, frequent garage door adjustments may be required more often than expected.
Use the right replacement parts for your garage door
We always emphasize that you should use the right garage door repair parts when replacing a component. Using parts that don’t fit exactly can be dangerous, leading to defects in other parts of the garage door.
Don't apply lubricant to the tracks
Garage door tracks are not meant to be lubricated, they should just be cleaned thoroughly. Applying grease or lubricant to this part of your system could actually increase the chance of a door off track, so we really don't advise it.
