Keep your Garage Doors working for years with Garage Door Maintenance

Here at Valuemax San Rafael we do believe that homeowners are perfectly capable of handling most of their own property repairs, but there are some things involving garage door repair and maintenance that are best left to a professional. If the repair or the maintenance involves a spring or cable please make sure to always call professionals like us to fix them. These repairs are extremely complicated and dangerous for someone without the proper tools and training. Here is a short list of things to check for on a monthly basis (or for a more extensive list, look at our Garage Door Repair Inspection Sheet):

  • Locks If your lock is not locking easily, please do not force it. You can break your key off. Instead, first try spraying a graphite-based lock lubricant into the lock and gently try to remove it. If the lock turns but doesn't lock, check the lock bars inside and make sure they are correctly aligned.
  • Exterior Maintenance If you have a wood garage door it is always important to keep it painted or stained both inside and out to help preserve not only its look, but its performance as well.
  • Lubricate Rollers and Hinges You do not have to lubricate your rollers and hinges each month, but make sure that you still look for poorly lubed parts that can wear out quickly.
  • Look for Loose Bolts Your bolts can loosen over time because of the amount of force needed to raise and lower your heavy garage door. If you see any loose bolts, make sure you tighten them. However, make sure to be careful when working around the spring assembly bracket bolts. Feel free to look at our safety tips page for more information on how to stay safe when dealing with garage door maintenance.

With our advice given, homeowners can now take care of most of their routine maintenance themselves.
