Maintain your door

27/02/2015

While York Garage Doors are always at hand to repair or replace garage doors throughout the area, we also like to help our customers on how best to care for their existing model.

As we so often like to remind people, garage doors don’t look after themselves – to ensure that they remain safe and looking as good as possible, regular maintenance is necessary. This doesn’t just safeguard your outbuildings contents, but it can also dramatically extend the life of the door.

To give you more of an idea of what these maintenance jobs entail, we’ve summarised some of our favourites below:

Keep everything lubricated

Ensure that the hinges, springs and rollers are well lubricated every three or so months – this keeps everything ticking over nicely and eliminates the risk of certain parts grinding against each other.

Look out for worn or loose parts

It helps to have a general monthly inspection of the whole door. You may find that some nuts and bolts may need tightening slightly or that worn parts could do with replacing. Have a listen to the operation, too – a noisier than normal garage door indicates a problem.

Clean it

The dreaded cleaning job may be a chore, but it’s a chore well worth completing. Regularly washing both sides of your garage door with cold water can help to rinse away any stains or marks, as well as keeping it looking in pristine condition.
