DIY Garage Door Maintenance Tips

DIY Garage Door Maintenance Tips

People often ask me how they can silence a noisy garage door that rattles and squeaks when it opens or closes. Because there’s so many moving parts in these things, and they’re used so frequently, it’s not uncommon for the nuts, bolts, and screws to work themselves loose 

over time.

A little regular maintenance is a good idea. Simply checking all of the fasteners with a socket wrench every year or two is a good way to catch loose ones before they fall out and disappear altogether. If you have missing fasteners, they can usually be replaced with large, self-tapping 

screws.

While you’re working on the door, it’s a good idea to lubricate the track the door rides on as well as the rollers themselves. If the garage door opener is chain-driven, it will help to apply some lubricant to it as well.

Finally, check the sensors in the opening to be sure they will properly stop the door from closing if there is an obstruction in the doorway.
