How Often Should You Service Your Garage Door?

How Often Should You Service Your Garage Door?

It’s important to keep your garage door in good condition if you want it to last. That means scheduling regular garage door repair services to make sure everything is working properly.

How often should you service your garage door? It depends on the type of door you have, how often you use it, and the climate in your area. In this blog post, we will discuss the different factors that play into how often you should service your garage door and provide some general guidelines to follow.

If you have an automatic garage door, it’s a good idea to schedule service every six months. This will help keep the door functioning properly and ensure that all the moving parts are in good condition. If you live in a climate with extreme temperatures – either very hot or very cold – it’s a good idea to service the door more often. The extreme temperatures can cause the door to expand and contract, which can loosen the components and lead to problems.

If you use your garage door regularly – multiple times a day, every day – then you should service it more often than if you only use it occasionally. The frequent use can put wear and tear on the door and the components, so it’s important to keep it in good condition.

 

How often do garage doors need maintenance?

Garage doors need maintenance just like any other piece of equipment in your home. However, how often you should service your garage door depends on a few factors, such as the type of garage door you have and how frequently it’s used. In general, homeowners should perform basic maintenance tasks like cleaning and lubricating the moving parts at least twice a year. If you have an automatic garage door opener, be sure to check the sensors and alignment of the door every six months or so. And finally, if you notice any problems with your garage door, don’t hesitate to call in a professional for repairs. At Pro Entry Garage doors, we can help you keep your garage door in good condition so you can enjoy it for years to come. Contact us today for more information!

 

How often should you oil your garage door spring?

Garage door springs need to be oiled every 4-6 months in order to keep them functioning properly. If you don’t oil your garage door spring, it will eventually break, which can cause damage to your car and/or the door itself. It’s a good idea to keep a bottle of spray lubricant on hand so that you can lubricate the springs regularly. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this yourself, Pro Entry Garage Doors can come out and do it for you. We offer a variety of services to meet your needs, so please give us a call today!

 

Can I use WD-40 on garage door?

The main cause of garage door problems is rusted components and crevices, which can all be removed with a solvent. The fact that WD-40 is an excellent garage door lubricant is that it also removes rust from parts. One bottle of WD-40 may solve the majority of your garage door lubrication issues but it may not be sufficient for more serious problems.

 

What causes a garage door to jerk when closing?

A garage door that jerks when closing is often a sign that it needs to be serviced. This may be caused by bent tracks, worn rollers, or even a defective garage door opener. Don’t ignore these problems since they put a strain on the opener and if left unchecked can burn out the motor of your garage door opener.

If you’re not sure how often you should service your garage door, consult the manual that came with the door or contact a professional garage door repair services. Pro Entry Garage Doors can help you determine when your next service appointment should be and we can also provide regular maintenance to make sure your garage door is always in good working condition.

Mohamed came referred to me by a close friend to help with my garage door cable snapping! Mohamed was professional, patient, and took the time to explain what was needed. He even serviced the springs that became unwound and lubricated all the parts that needed it. While my garage door eventually needs to be replaced he bought me some time to decide what we are looking for. He wasn’t pushy at all and I feel comfortable booking him in as soon as we are ready to replace our doors. Can’t recommend his services enough!

My garage door springs were broken and it was very difficult to open the door manually so I contacted Pro Entry to come in to take a look. Mohammed was my service tech and he came on time and was very professional. He did a great job in making sure that the replacement springs were installed correctly. I also opted to replace the rollers which were looking worn. Beyond that he did a great job in setting up the garage door openers. Very happy with the service and would highly recommend.

Very good experience. Mel was very quick to locate a technician to handle my emergency. My garage door could not open, so I was unable to access my car, and needed my problem resolved the same day. The technician Anwar was great. He contacted me to advise that his earlier appointment was delayed and when he would get to me. He was courteous, funny and dealt with my issue quickly. I will definitely keep Pro Entry in my contact list and refer them to anyone I know who needs garage door services. Great experience.
