Make sure every part of the opening system is in good condition and lubricated

Garage door maintenance is one of the things that we often forget about until the garage door alerts us to a problem of some kind.

Proceed to lubricate the opener track an all pivot points, hinges, springs and torsion bar bearings.

A garage door lubricant is the best option to use rather than grease or oil which will attract dust. Confirm that the rollers are in good condition because they are often the first cause for the noisy shrill. If wornout rollers are the problem, then you will have to replace them. Lubricate the roller bearings when you replace the rollers.

The opener on your garage door and balance

What type of opener is installed on your garage door? Is it a chain, screw or belt drive? Once you know what kind of garage door opener you have, you can then proceed to check the balance of your door. Raise the door half way by pulling the cord used to open the door manually. Release the cord once the door is half way open.  An unbalanced door falls right down when you release the cord but a stable garage door remains open.
