Extend the Life of Your Door and Save Money
An easy way to double the life expectancy of your door and save money on repair bills is to take care of your door. In fact, if you take care of your door you can expect it to last a full 20,000 cycles which is about 20 years for most people. However, if you don’t take care of your door it’ll only last 10 years.
You’ll also save money on repair bills because proper maintenance will help prevent unnecessary wear which leads to parts breaking. Here are our tips for taking care of your door:
- A couple of times a year wipe down your tracks and inspect parts for rust
- Promptly remove any rust that you find
- Use a special garage door lubricant to generously lubricate the roller bearings, springs, opener chain, and hinges
- Make sure you schedule a professional tune-up once a year
Another thing to keep in mind when doing maintenance is to make sure your only lubricate your roller bearings and not the tracks as this makes them too slippery.
