If you purchase a B&D Roller Doors and want it to last as long as possible, it is imperative that you watch for any potential problems and fix them immediately upon noticing them. Immediately fixing problems with your garage door will help prolong its lifespan and keep it lasting as long as possible. The following are some basic preventative maintenance tips that will help you get the most out of your B&D garage roller doors and Panelift® doors.
Your garage door goes through a lot on a daily basis. It is constantly opening and closing. All that movement puts strain on the bolts and brackets that hold your garage door in place.
On a regular basis, typically every four to six months, it is a good idea to check all bolts and brackets on your garage door. Check to make sure the bolts and brackets aren't loose. If they are, you can use a basic socket wrench that is found in almost any toolbox to tighten them back up.
If you are uncomfortable with tightening the bolts and brackets yourself, a professional garage door repairman can do it for you. It will cost a small fee, but it will help you save money in the long run, as you won't have to replace the entire garage door.
The weatherstripping on the bottom of B&D garage roller doors and Panelift® doors is pretty durable, but it isn't immune to problems. Over time, it could become cracked or start to show signs of wear and tear. When this happens, it is important to make sure you replace the weatherstripping.
Cracked or broken weatherstripping might not cause problems for your garage door, but it will cause problems for the items inside your garage. When the weatherstripping is broken, water may come into the garage during a storm. If this happens, it could damage the items you have stored inside the garage.
When there is a problem with your garage door, you will typically notice it. Pay close attention when your Melbourne garage door opens or closes, and watch for any problems.
Some problems to watch for include the door not opening or closing as smoothly as it used to, the door opening or closing faster or slower than previous times, or the garage door making squeaking or clunking noises. All of these are signs that there may be a problem with your garage door. You can eliminate groans and squeaks with a simple lubrication once a year. Check the rails for foreign debris then spray lubricant on the chain and springs.
