A door has only two functions: open and close, but sometimes it stops performing its job due to a minor problem. These problems are so easy to fix that you do not need any operator to handle it. Also, if you maintain your doors properly you can easily prevent them from any fault in the future. Here are some tips that will not only save your money but also save your time for waiting for a professional to come and repair your garage door:
- If you find a problem in opening or closing your door, you must check the rollers and loose spots and if you haven’t used that door from a long time you must grease its joints and you can also brush the tracks by using a lubricant.
- Old doors usually create a lot of noise indicating everyone that you have entered the room. You can avoid this noise by applying a suitable lubricant to your door tracks every 6 months, especially before winters.
- Have you ever experienced a jammed door at your garage? Sometimes, a door is jammed if it hasn’t been opened from a very long time and then you have to rush to a carpenter to fix it. Actually, this problem happens in winters as the door absorbs a lot of moisture during winters. The solution is to produce a good amount of heat in the room; it will help loosen the track and the door by taking away all the moisture.
- You must be aware that the locks of all the doors are working properly. You must keep a regular check for ensuring that your door is working properly or not. You must check and maintain your door regularly on a quarterly basis to avoid any large problem and if you still find the problem that you can’t fix yourself, you can call a professional carpenter.
