Assess the Garage Door Moving Parts

Open your garage door and watch or listen for any abnormal sound or irregular movement, such as squeaking noises, clanking, or shaking. Even if you do not notice anything out of the ordinary, it is a good idea to inspect your rollers up close and replace them if they are getting worn down.

 

Furthermore, you should lightly lubricate all of the garage door moving parts using special garage door grease. A Garage Door Repair Company specialist can grease all the moving parts without overdoing it.

Garage Door Auto-Reverse Assessment

Check the garage door automatic reversal system once every month. You can do this by placing a solid object on the ground that could potentially block the door as it is closing. When the garage door either senses the object or contacts the object, it should auto-reverse.

 

If the door either stops or tries to close anyway, then there is a problem. The problem could be related to the sensors, or it could be a mechanical problem in which the door doesn’t respond to the sensors. In either case, call a Garage Door Repair Company specialist to inspect the garage door and fix the problem.

 

In most cases, the problems are simple and low-cost.

Replace the Garage Door Weather Stripping

If you live in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area, then you understand the value of insulating your home during the winter months. One of the simplest and cost-effective ways to keep drafts from getting into your home is replacing the weather stripping around your garage door.

 

Weather stripping seals the area between the door and the door frame so that drafts or humidity cannot get into the garage, and then further into the house. Garage Door Repair Company can inspect your garage door to see what type of insulation is around the frame. We can change out the old insulation with brand new garage door insulation any time of the year.
