Islandia Garage Door Repair

Our lives and schedules can get pretty hectic. With everything that goes on, it's easy to forget to have your Islandia 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.

DIY Garage Door Maintenance

  1. Watch and Listen: Over time, you get to know the way your Islandia garage door functions and operates. Probably the simplest things you can do to detect signs of an issue is to watch and listen. If you hear odd noises such as screeching or see abnormal movement like jolting, its time to have the professionals take a look.
  2. Lubricate: The moving parts of your garage door such as the roller brackets, pulleys, tracks, springs, and cables should be kept lubricated through out the year. A white lithium spray, WD-40, or garage door grease will do the trick. This will keep your door operating smoothly and prevent jamming.
  3. Keep it Clean: Use an all purpose cleaner to wipe down your garage door and its parts. This will help you notice damage such as holes, cracks, dents, warping, and rusting. These issues may seem superficial, but can eventually worsen and lead to extremely costly repairs. Wiping down the parts will help you notice broken springs, fraying cables, obstructions, etc. It will also keep your garage door looking fresh.
  4. Tighten: It's common, over time for parts of your garage door to become loose. Use a socket wrench, and screw driver to tighten loose roller brackets, nuts, bolts, and screws. This will literally keep your door from falling apart.
  5. Weather Seals: The weather seal at the bottom of your garage door helps keep dirt, pests, and elements, outside where they belong. After a while it can crack and become damaged. It's easily replaced and available at your local hardware store.

Safety First

There are certain repairs and maintenance that should be left to the professionals. For instance, the cables attached to your garage door hold enough force and tension to seriously injure or possibly kill someone if not handled correctly.

    Comments about our Garage Door Repair service:
    They were easy to deal with, professional and efficient. I needed one spring replaced which they were willing to do but recommended that they replace the springs in pairs. They were more than willing to go with whatever my decision was. No pressure. They give a One year warranty on their work. They were fast with minimal noise as I had a sleeping child and that was important to me. I highly recommend them.
