Tips About Garage Doors and Springs

Our technicians are the trusted experts in Oakland for quality garage door repairs and unbeatable low prices. Take time to read through some of their outstanding tips and comments about caring for your garage door. Scroll down here to take a look!

Why galvanized tracks are a good option

Back in the day, garage door tracks were made solely from plain steel. Today, they come galvanized too - this may be a little more expensive but it's worth it in the long run. You'll get longer lasting components more resistant to rust.

How to prepare your garage door for the winter

To prepare your garage door for harsh winter conditions, it's a good idea to clean the door’s exterior with a mixture of mild detergent and water. Use the mixture over the door and thoroughly rinse it. Afterward, whatever the material of door you have, apply a new layer of weather-resistant finish and check that the seals are all intact.

Why is my garage door making a lot of noise?

Garage doors are likely to make a lot of noise if they have not been lubricated for a long time. Our technicians recommend a light lithium or silicone spray to lubricate the springs, hinges, rollers, ball bearings and top of the chain rail (if you're using a chain drive system).

Don't leave your remote control on show

If you ever park outside or in public parking lots, avoiding having your garage door clicker in plain view! People have broken into cars for much less. It's best to keep it hidden or better carry it with you.

Replace both springs at the same time

Springs are one of the most important parts of a garage door, and replacing broken springs cannot be done by everyone. DIY repairs can mean safety problems or poorly installed springs. Also, if your door comes with two springs, replace both at the same time. Even if the other spring is still okay, the differences between the two could affect the balance of the door and the performance of the newer spring.
