Ben Franklin once said, “If time be of all things the most precious, wasting time must be the greatest prodigality.”

When it comes to the maintenance of your overhead door, it becomes just as important as replacing essential components to keep things in tip-top-money-making-shape. Help your door reach its full-potential by maintaining it with these simple steps:

Inspect the Unexpected:

Inspect the moving parts of your garage and notice signs of extreme wear or cracks. Although those that are part of the DIY-club can handle these minor fixes, Home Improvement for Dummies urges those that are not well-versed in overhead door technicalities to consult an expert. “…A qualified garage-door service technician should handle the more complicated tasks. The springs and related hardware are under high tension and can cause severe injury if handled improperly.”

Use the Lubes:

Aerosol spray lubricant like WD-40 can lubricate hinges, rollers, door panels, and lock mechanisms. If you’ve misplaced the user’s manual, you can usually find one online. If at any time you need help replacing parts, please don’t hesitate to consult AAA DoorTeks at 1-800-Tek-Teks
