Quieting a Noisy Garage Door with a Bit of Lithium & Elbow Grease


We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: the best way to avoid garage door repairs and replacement costs is to keep up on the overhead door maintenance yourself. The main way to do this is lubricating your garage door parts when you start to notice it’s running a bit more shakily and a lot more noisily. 

Lubricating garage door parts is a 2-in-1 maintenance task, too, because it gives you an opportunity to inspect the condition of all the moving parts of the garage door as well as its tracks and hinges. You’ll be able to see if lubrication is in fact the solution to your noisy garage door, or if you’ve got dirty tracks or worn out rollers that need tending to.

This attentive homeowner has his lubrication regimen nailed down. A few simple tools, a bit of elbow grease and a free hour after work every few months has probably saved this guy a tonne of money over the years. If you want to follow along with his process, all you need to do is grab a can of lithium grease, a wrench, and a couple socks (hear him out), and you’re ready to get started! 

Exterior Door Installers Have Specialized Knowledge for the Best Garage Door Service

There’s a reason garage door specialists exist – there are a lot of things that go into installing, caring for, and repairing an overhead garage door. Not to mention that some service visits are vital to your safety; for instance, you should never try to replace garage door springs on your own. And when it comes to putting a door back on track or rebalancing a crooked door, there’s a nuance to hanging the overhead door just right that you simply can’t achieve without the training and experience a professional has. So if you want to get the most out of your garage door, you can’t go wrong with hiring an overhead door company that provides comprehensive garage door services.
