Paying attention to the sounds your garage door makes when it opens and closes. By doing so, you can catch several problems before they get out of hand. Do you hear any screeching or scratching sounds?

Take a moment and watch the door as it opens and closes. Is it taking longer to close than usual? Paying attention to these visual and auditory cues, you might catch small issues before they become real problems. If you see or hear anything out of the ordinary, give us a call for a free garage door inspection.

Inspect the Rollers

After watching how the garage door opens and closes, check the rollers. In order to keep your garage door in the best working condition, the rollers should not look rusted or worn. If they do, it may be time to get them replaced.

Clear the Tracks

While looking at rollers, make sure the tracks on either side of the door are free of debris. If there are any significant adjustments needed, give us a call so one of our professional technicians can take a look.

Lubricate the Moving Parts

In order to keep the parts of the garage door moving freely, it is a good idea to lubricate them regularly. Particularly in Louisiana where the weather is often hot and humid, garage door parts can become sluggish quickly.
