The life of a garage door depends on several things. Our hope is to make you aware of what will increase the life expectancy of your door. A good rule of thumb for garage doors is that they will last about 30 years. A garage opener is slated to last approximately 15 years.
One thing that will change the length of time your garage works is the manufacturer. Like anything, there are some brands and products that will be made with better materials and attention to detail.
That being said, Neighborhood Garage Door Services of Orlando, Florida wants to share tips on how to increase the life of your garage door.
Ways to make your door last include:
Cleanliness is key!
One way to prolong the life of your overhead door is to be sure that it stays clean. A little soapy, warm water will go a long way with the door’s surface. If you have a wooden door, then be sure to get it painted when you begin to notice any paint chipping.
Your sensors matter.
The door opener’s sensors are a big deal. They are essential to consider as they are a safety feature. The process to “maintain” sensors is simple. You simply need to take a clean cloth and wipe down the sensors and keep these areas free from dirt and debris.
Keep your door maintained.
An occasional routine maintenance appointment will go far for your garage door. We would appreciate you using our services. Our team is certified and provides same day service. We can handle any garage door issue. If you sense something not working smoothly, then contact a garage door service provider for a tune up.
Keep your door lubricated.
Your garage door needs lubrication. The components that most require some sort of a lubricant are the springs, rollers and hinges. WD-40 is an excellent product that will do the trick nicely for you. All you really need is a light coating to keep your garage door lubricated.
Inspect your door regularly.
Garage doors have so many important components that need to work together seamlessly. Be sure to check out your door by just a simple “eyeball” glance to ensure all is working smoothly.
If you see something that is faulty, then replace that part. Tighten up bolts that seem lose and be sure you pay attention to cable wires.
