Maintenance Tips for Your Roll Up Garage Door
Typically, you can consciously watch how your door is moving when you’re arriving or departing and that’s enough of an inspection. If it is moving slower or shuddering, it may mean that something is loose or that the tracks are obstructed. On closer inspection, if you notice any rust in the hinges, wheels, tracks or springs, a simple lubricant with anti-rust properties may be applied.
Addressing Noisy Doors
A noisy garage door is not only a nuisance, but it can also be downright unsafe! With a loud enough door, you can alert just about anyone that you have come home, or that you have left. Noisy
