Check The Springs Regularly

We recommend checking the lifespan of your garage door springs and replacing them before they wear completely or break. This is the best way to avoid dealing with springs snapping unpredictably or causing an accident. The recommended replacement date is usually given in the manual of the manufacturer but you must also make sure the springs are in good condition and well lubricated.

Check Your Tracks For Poor Alignment or Damage

Bent or crooked tracks can cause uneven wear on rollers which will result in a jerking movement when the door is in operation. Our company advises that minor damage can be easily corrected by loosening the fastenings and gently tapping the tracks with a hammer. You should use a level to ensure the tracks are properly realigned and check all fastenings are properly re-secured.

Be Alert to Strange Sounds

If you hear a loud, screeching sound that seems to be coming from the opener of your garage door, there is a possibility that your door has become out of balance. To check, pull the emergency handle when your garage door is down. Lift it again and allow it to close. Professionals at our company advise that if the door is heavy for lifting, a spring adjustment may be needed.

Keep Salt Away from the Opening of Your Garage Door

Some homeowners use salt for the melting of ice and snow that has accumulated in their driveway. Though salt is helpful for this purpose, it is also highly corrosive and can damage your garage door and its opener. Therefore, try and keep salt away from your door as much as possible. If you see salt that has accumulated, rinse accordingly.
