Seasonal Maintenance for Your Overhead Garage Door

When’s the last time you inspected your overhead garage door? It’s a good idea to schedule regular garage door inspections according to the seasons — every spring, summer, fall, and winter. This way, you can be sure your door is up on repairs and working smoothly as it adjusts to changes in the weather. Watch and listen to your door operate. Is it quiet and smooth, or does it rattle and make a lot of noise? Does it move as smoothly as it once did, or does it tend to be slow? Be sure to clean the tracks. Inspect the rollers, looking for any that might be frayed or missing. Oil all moving parts of your garage door, including your chain, cables, rollers, and hinges. Tighten down all hardware. A socket wrench is your best bet for loose bolts and components.
