Tip 7: Monthly Inspection

Of course, it is vital to check your garage door monthly.  First you have to check the springs, because the springs carry heavy loads and they need to be strong, otherwise the heavy door can’t be lifted.  You will have to look at whether the springs are rusted, are they broken, or are they fine?  Then you look at the door itself, and whether or not there are rusted edges or sharp edges, which can possibly hurt someone.  Lastly, you must look at the pulley system to ensure it is in good shape.  Applying chain lubricant is always a good idea too.


Tip 6: Repairs

It might seem like an easy fix to just fix the door yourself, but this has more than one drawback.  Firstly – it is a safety hazard, and not just for you where the door could fall on you or because you can be shocked, but also because you might just be messing with the wrong problem.  It is also a fairly unreliable fix.  So, do yourself a favour, and hire a professional, because it will be cost-effective and time-effective too, because you do not have to do it again and again.  You are a bit ignorant at the whole process, while others have the expertise.
