Summer garage maintenance

23/06/2017

Regular maintenance can help extend the lifespan of your garage door and is easy to carry out. We recommend taking a little bit of time to check your door this summer to ensure it is in top condition and to avoid any expensive repair bills further down the line.

1. Visual check

The first thing we recommend you do is carry out a visual check for wear and tear. This means looking out for any damaged or missing parts such as loose or broken hinges, bolts or runners. Also check the seals and paintwork.

2. Listen out

It’s important to listen out for any unusual noise when opening or closing the garage door too. This could signal there’s a problem if it not moving smoothly or any screeching or loud noisy is present.

3. Lubricate

If your door is particularly noisy, lubricating parts with a 3 in 1 oil can help to remedy to this and mean the door operates more smoothly and efficiently.

4. Remove rust

If during your visual inspection you’ve found rust, it is important that this is removed. This can be done by sanding the affected area. If you’re not confident about doing this, or are concerned about the amount of rust present it may be best to seek the advice of a professional.

5. Repaint if needed

Once you have dealt with rust it might be necessary to repaint the door. This will enhance the appearance of your door and the overall welcome of your property.
