Your garage door repair in Centennial is just around the corner. But just like any other mechanical device requires regular maintenance to perform its best day-in and day-out. This includes cleaning and lubricating your garage door hinges, rollers and track on an annual basis. Cleaning your garage door more or track is the first step. Don’t use water or other chemicals as this can cause build up and do more damage than good. Instead, use a broom to brush off any dust and debris. Be particularly careful to clean out spider webs and other insect nests that might capture other dirt and particles that can clog up the tracks and wheels.
For garage doors in consider doing this seasonally after the brown pine pollen has finished covering the ground. In other areas, the spring is a good time to do maintenance because winter vehicle traffic brings an abundance of dirt and grime into the garage.
What are the best garage door preoducts?
A problematic garage door can cause a host of problems — from water leaks to security concerns. Here are a few of the most common garage door-related problems and some inexpensive ways to fix them.
Problem: Your garage door won’t open or close.
Solution: First, check the electronic keypad. Keys become stuck or damaged due to moisture, age and use. If your keypad doesn’t work, use your remote garage door opener to open or close the door. If the door works with your remote opener, your keypad is broken. If neither the keypad nor the remote opener works, it’s likely that the motor receiver (or the motor itself) is broken. A licensed pro will diagnose the problem and recommend a solution.
Problem: Your garage door jams when opening or closing.
Solution: If your garage door stops while opening or closing, you may have a mechanical issue. Start by lubricating the rollers — the small wheels that fit into the track — with WD40. Next, clear any blockage or rust from the track and look for off-track rollers. If you notice a broken roller, call a licensed pro to reset your garage door.
Problem: Your garage door leaks during storms.
Solution: If your garage is wet after after a storm, it’s usually the sign of a faulty door seal. To stop leaks, simply replace your older seal with a newer model. Make sure your replacement is the correct size (always measure the width of your garage door before making a purchase).
If leaks continue, call a professional. Constant garage leaks can damage other parts of your home.
Problem: Your garage door slides down (or up) by itself.
Solution: A garage door that won’t stay open or closed is most likely suffering from faulty extension springs. If your door slides down, your springs are too weak or worn. Likewise, if your garage door slides up, your springs are too strong. The correct spring tension is related to the height and weight of your garage door. If you’re unsure about which springs to choose, have a pro help you match the right springs to your door.
