Garage Door Repair and Maintenance

Your garage door is probably the largest movable object in your house. Keeping it in good maintenance ultimately comes down to a safety issue, especially if you’ve got children or pets. There are several routine maintenance jobs you can do on your garage door. This will increase the safety as well as minimize expensive garage door repair costs in the future.

Always keep your garage door well lubricated. WD40 isn’t the best for this job. You want a lithium spray or perhaps a silicone spray. Apply liberally to the top part of the chain rail, stems, hinges, metal rollers that come with ball bearings, the arm bar, nubs, and the lock. Don’t worry about the chain rail, the chain, the garage door track, and the spring.

Rather than lubricate the track, you should clean it regularly. Wipe the inside portion of the track with a wet cloth, followed by a dry cloth. WD40 does make a nice solution if there are any sticky areas on the track.

What to Do for a Garage Door Off Track

Your garage door goes up and down smoothly on rollers. The rollers fit into a track. Considering your garage door goes up and down literally thousands of times a year, naturally the garage door will come off its tracks from time to time. To fix a garage door that has come off its track, start by making sure the tracks are well anchored to the wall. Often, the reason the rollers are off track is because the tracks have come off of the wall. Tighten any loose brackets anchoring the track to the wall. Align the tracks by using a level. You may need to loosen the bolts and then tighten them back into alignment.
