The Secret to a Quiet Garage Door

An overhead garage door that grinds, squeals and rattles can get on your nerves. Sometimes, it seems you can hear the garage door in every corner of the house. The good news is this situation is easily fixable. The first step to a quieter garage door is to tighten down the nuts and the bolts on the door and the track. This is where much of the rattle is coming from. Everything should be nice and snug — tight, but not too tight. Next, make sure the garage door is well lubricated. Spray down all moving parts with an approved garage door lubricant (never WD40 which can cause the parts of your garage door to permanently rust). Inspect the rollers and replace any that are falling apart. By maintaining your garage door on a regular basis, you can ensure peace and quiet with a smooth opening door.
