Garage door repair should not always be delegated to a garage door company. Even if you are not too handy with this type of repair, you can still be able to fix some simple issues with your door. Being informed about the door itself is one way of being able to do some fixer-uppers on your door.
• If you notice some creaking when you open your door, it may be due to stuck up garage door bearings, rollers or springs. Open and close your door and determine where the creaking is coming from. Once you have already known its source, lubricate the offending part and open and close it again to spread the lubricant.
• For scratches on the wooden surface, a simple repaint job will banish the scratches. It only needs to be smoothed down so they don’t appear visible anymore.
• Broken garage door springs are probably one of the hardest repair jobs you can do. You can enlist the help of a family member or a friend to give you a hand in replacing the broken springs. Consulting the owner’s manual on how to do so will hasten the job.
• There will come a time when the door will refuse to open or close completely. Check what causes this problem and proceed with finding a way to repair it. You may just need to lubricate some parts to make it work perfectly, or you need to replace some if there is anything broken or not working.
During the installation of your door, make it a point to observe on how it is being done. You can also ask questions about garage door parts and their functions. Keep your owner’s manual always handy during a situation where you need to fix a small problem on your door.
