A well-maintained garage door not only ensures smooth operation but also extends the lifespan of your door. Here are a few maintenance tips, handpicked by our team at Integrity Overhead Doors:
Examine the Tracks and Hinges
Over time, the door’s tracks and hinges can loosen. Periodically inspect them and use a socket wrench or a screwdriver to tighten any loose bolts or fasteners on the moving parts.
Monitor Your Garage Door Rollers
Look out for signs of wear on rollers not attached to the lift cable system. While steel rollers might show worn bearings or appear lopsided, nylon rollers tend to crack with age. When detected early, replacement is straightforward, ensuring continued smooth performance.
Inspect the Lift Cables
Pay close attention to the lift cables attached to the door. Rust, deterioration, or broken strands in these cables could spell trouble. If you notice any wear, it’s best to call us immediately for service.
Remember, a well-kept garage door is a safe and efficient one. Trust the experts at Integrity Overhead Doors to keep yours in top shape.
