Your garage door is an asset to your Bohemia home. It accounts for 30% of a residence's curbside appeal, and can increase its value, security, and safety. It's also quickly replacing the front door as the primary entrance and exit point of homes everywhere. That being said, it's also very easy to not give our garage doors a second thought until there's an issue with them. It's important to have our garage doors routinely inspected and maintained. It's also crucial to have damage and malfunctions repaired immediately. This is because even the smallest of issues can quickly become larger and expensive burdens. There are a few things you can do yourself to help preserve your garage door's function and longevity.

Garage Door Maintenance

  1. Watch and Listen- The average Bohemia homeowner opens and closes their garage door over 1500 times a year. That's a lot of use and fortunately that’s a lot of getting to know the function of your door. If you hear odd noises like screeching, or see that it's jamming, it's better to have it looked at sooner than later.
  2. Keep it Clean- Wiping down your garage door with an all purpose cleaner not only keeps it fresh looking, but helps you to notice damage like cracks, holes, dents, rusting, warping, etc. This damage may seem small and superficial, but if not addressed, can eventually turn into unrepairable, costly replacement of your garage door.
  3. Tighten- Over time, nuts, bolts, roller brackets, screws, etc. can become loose. Use a socket wrench, and screw driver to tighten them and keep your garage door from literally falling apart.
  4. Remove Debris- Be sure to keep any obstructions and debris off of your garage door's tracks. This will prevent jamming and misalignment. Also be sure to keep your door's photo-eye sensors clean so it can do its job properly. These sensors help prevent injury such as entrapment.
  5. Replace- The weather stripping at the bottom of your garage door, and sealant on the sides are important in keeping elements, dirt, and pests, outside where they belong. Over time they can become cracked and damaged. This is normal and can easily be fixed. They can be purchased and sized at your local hardware store and easily replaced.
