Steel Doors

If you have a steel garage door you’ll want to inspect the hinges to make sure they are not bent or cracked. If they squeal or make noise when you move them you’ll want to lubricate them at each end of the chamber. Rollers should also be checked to make sure they are able to move freely from side to side within the hinge. One last thing to check are the struts to see if they have become loose or bent.

Rollers

You’ll want to check the rollers for all types of garage doors to make sure they are still able to roll and that the wheel is perpendicular to the axel. If anything is not working properly it will need to be replaced, this is something our garage door technicians can help you repair.

Weather Seal

The other part of your garage door that you should look at is the weather seal at the bottom of your door. It should be pliable and not have any cracks or tears in it. The weather seal keeps rain and small mice and vermin out of your garage, so you’ll want to make sure it is in good shape.
