Our lives and schedules can get pretty hectic. With everything that goes on, it's easy to forget to have your Oakdale garage door routinely inspected and maintained. In fact, most people don’t even give their garage doors a second thought until something goes wrong. Even then, if it seems that the problem is small or superficial, more often than not, we will ignore the issue for as long as possible. The truth is that doing this can lead to extremely costly repairs and even possible replacement of your garage door. To avoid this, there are a few things you can do yourself between annual tune-ups to maintain your garage door and detect problems or even prevent costly repairs.

Simple DIY Maintenance

A few simple DIY tasks can significantly decrease the amount of future garage door repairs and further maintenance.

  • Keeping the moving parts such as the chain, springs, and roller brackets lubricated throughout the year will preserve your doors operation.
  • Replacing a damaged weather seal will keep the elements, pests, and dirt from entering your garage and possibly your home.
  • Clean your tracks and remove any obstructions or debris.
  • Tighten brackets, bolts, nuts, and screws that may have become loose.
  • Look out for damaged rollers and lift cables with broken strands.
  • Give your door a good cleaning with an all purpose cleaner. This will not only keep it looking nice, but also make you aware of any chips, rust, warping, and dents in your door. It may seem small and superficial, but repairing any damage will be sure to prevent further, expensive fixes.
  • Watching and listening is probably the simplest thing you can do, but most effective. Over time, you get used to the function of your garage door. Being aware of abnormal noises and jerking motions will help you catch an issue before it becomes a big problem.
  • Have your Oakdale garage door inspected by trained professionals annually.

The average homeowner opens and closes their garage doors over 1500 times per year. It's safe to say that a garage door is an important feature of a home. Keeping it maintained and functioning properly will add to the convenience, safety, security and value of your Oakdale residence.
