Spring Garage Door Maintenance Checklist

Spring Garage Door Maintenance Checklist

Spring is here, and it’s time to get your home in check. You might not have been using your garage door as much these winter months, so it’s important to ensure it will not malfunction as we transition into the next season. 

Your garage door is not only a functional component of your home but also a crucial element in maintaining its security and overall curb appeal. To ensure your garage door operates smoothly throughout the year, it’s essential to perform regular maintenance checks. 

Here are some important steps to take for Spring Garage Door Maintenance:

Inspect and Lubricate Moving Parts 

  • Examine the springs, rollers, hinges, and tracks for signs of wear and damage. 
  • Lubricate these components with a high-quality garage door lubricant to reduce friction and ensure smooth operation.

Tighten Hardware

  • Check for loose bolts and nuts on the garage door and its hardware. 
  • Tighten any that may have become loose during regular use. 

Balance the Garage Door 

  • Test the balance of your garage door by disconnecting the opener and manually lifting it halfway. If it doesn’t stay in place, it may be unbalanced, requiring professional adjustment. 
  • If you have concerns with your garage door, give the experts at Welborn Garage a call. They will perform a thorough inspection and ensure your garage door is operating smoothly and properly.
