A carefully selected hub of garage door tips. We cover all the main topics.
Lubricate the mechanism often
Absence of lubrication maintenance would make the mechanical garage door parts and the chain of the garage door opener really noisy. Our company recommends lubrication approximately twice a year but it would also depend on the number of cycles and condition of the components.
Can I reduce the noise my chain drive opener makes?
Being the louder option of the three most common garage door opener types, there isn't much that can be done to reduce the operating noise of the chain drive models. However, regular lubrication can help minimize it. If you prefer completely silent operation you should consider switching to a belt drive opener.
Measurements during garage door installation
The adage according to garage door repair Mount Vernon is that everything must be measured twice. It is also useful to have a drawing of the structure or a model that you can work from. Set all the tools and accessories in the places that are nearest to where they are actually going to be installed.
Lubricate parts properly
When you lubricate the garage door parts, make sure the lubricants penetrate each component properly. The lubricant must go through and through but you must not put too much of it. A couple of drops for each component are usually sufficient or you will have the opposite results.
A simple wash could save you some cash
Keeping your garage door clean not only keeps it looking good, but it is also an easy way to extend your door’s lifespan. Some simple soap and water should do the trick or, if you have one, you could use a power washer. Seeing as the bottom of your door is closest to the ground, make sure this section is cleaned as well. Also, don’t forget about the interior of your door and your opener.
