Garage Door Repair Tips for the Winter

10/26/2015

3 Most Common Garage Door Problems In WinterIf you’re in higher elevations, cold weather is hard on garage doors. Chilly weather below 35 degrees can thicken the oil that lubricates the motor, causing it to run slowly. You may need to set the “down force” setting during particularly cold weather so the door can completely close with the floor. If the door is still too heavy, place it into mechanical mode by turning off the opener. Open it manually. If it still too heavy, you may be having problems with the springs.

Garage Door Spring Maintenance Can Prevent Costly Repairs

A loud, squeaky garage door can be an annoying, but important reminder that maintenance is past due. Your garage torsion spring works hard every day, lifting and closing a door that weighs a few hundred pounds. This daily use reduces their lifespan, especially if proper maintenance isn’t performed throughout the year. Lightly apply a line of lubricating oil across the length of your spring, allowing it to coat all sides. Do not use WD-40 as this will strip oil and result in metal-to-metal contact, as well as damage your car paint if it drips. We offer frequent tune-ups and maintenance checks that keeps your garage in great shape as well as prevents costly breakdowns.
