DIY Maintenance of Your Garage Door

  • The average homeowner in Farmingville opens and closes their garage door over 1500 times per year. This should be more than enough times to have you acquainted with the operation of your door. Be aware of your garage. Listen and look for odd noises and jerking motions. This could be a sign of impending issues.
  • Use an all purpose cleaner to keep your door garage door clean. It not only makes your door look nicer, but it will help you notice cracks, chips, rusting, warping, and other damage. Tackling these seemingly small and superficial blemishes can keep your garage door newer, longer.
  • Tighten nuts, bolts, and screws that become loose with a socket wrench.
  • Use a garage door aerosol to keep the moving parts of your door lubricated, every few months. Roller brackets, pulleys, springs, chains, etc. need maintained lubrication for proper operation.
  • Rubber weather seals are an important component of your garage door. Keep cold air, rain, snow, pests, and dirt out of your garage and home by checking your rubber weather seals for cracks and damage. You can purchase a replacement at your local hardware store if needed.
  • Check your garage's cables near the bottom roller bracket for wear and tear. Do not try to adjust or fix high tension cables without the proper training. This job is much better left to the professionals.
