Garage Door Care and Maintenance 101: Tips and Hacks to Make Your Garage Door Last Longer

17 December 2021

Your garage door is one of the most essential parts of your home as it houses both your expensive cars and an extra entrance to your home. If your garage door becomes damaged, it can make it easier for people to break into your home as we don’t usually lock the door leading from the inside of our garage that leads into our house. So, if someone manages to gain access to your garage because of damage it has sustained, they can then get into your home.

Here at TOLE Products, we have made a list to help you maintain your garage door.

Lubricate your door

Your garage door is continually opening, and closing and will eventually need to have some lubricant reapplied, especially if you’re noticing any squeaking or grinding sounds coming from the door as it’s opening or closing.

Reapply weather sealant

Like any other part of your house, the garage door is subjected to the various weather conditions that mother nature dishes out, and this can wear down the protective weather coating. Doing this is pretty straightforward and will save you a lot of hassle in the future, so don’t put it off for too long.

Clean out the runners

When there is a big storm, debris such as rocks, sticks and leaves can become lodged in the runners of your door which can cause structural damage over time, so cleaning them out a few times a year will help prevent any damage to your garage door in the future.

Fix any dents

Your garage door can become dented in many ways such as from hailstorms or even just driving a little too close to it, and these dents aren’t just unsightly but can cause significant damage to the structure of your door. Getting these dents fixed ASAP should be on the top list of priorities.

Keep an eye on it
