Properly Lubricating a Noisy Door

Our technicians do tune-ups thousands of times a year.. but you can do it too and perhaps prevent a problem. There are several things that must be considered when lubricating the garage door. 

First, it is not advisable to lubricate the parts of a squeaking garage door with WD40 lubricant. A good silicone spray is recommended when lubricating the garage door parts like the top part of the chain rail, stems, and hinges, metal rollers that come with ball bearings, the arm bar, and the lock. While there are components of the garage door that require lubrication, there are also parts that should not be sprayed with any lubricant like the bottom part of the chain rail, the chain, the garage door track, and the spring.

It's amazing what a little bit of preventative maintenance can do

  1. Garage Doors must be well lubricated, as the sound is very irritating which comes with opening and closing of doors.
