DIY Garage Maintenance

Residential triple garage with new doors.

Your garage door may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of spring cleaning, but this is one area that should not be neglected. While it is never suggested that you try any type of major maintenance on your garage door (e.g. replacing cables, replacing springs, lowering a door that has become stuck, etc.), there are some things you can do to ensure that your garage door works properly. Your garage door is just like any other mechanical device in that it requires regular maintenance in order for it to perform its best.

Most likely, you use your garage door multiple times a day, every day. Cleaning and lubricating your garage door hinges, rollers, and track on an annual basis will help to ensure that your garage door opens and closes smoothly. Because your garage door is on metal hinges, it is important that you do not use water to clean it. This will cause rust to occur, ensuring that your garage door will not run smoothly. Instead, use a broom to brush off any dust and debris, being particularly vigilant about spider webs and other insects that like to build nests in small places. You surely do not want to disturb any harmful critter that may attack you.

Once you have cleaned your garage door, track, and other elements, the next step is lubrication. Your garage door hinges, rollers, and tracks should be lubricated with a light coating of spray silicon lubricant. This lubricant will allow the garage door to move at a smooth pace both up and down. Pay attention that you do not apply too much lubricant to the garage door elements as this can cause buildup.

These simple steps are easy for you to do on your own, and we at HABPRO encourage you to do this simple maintenance at least once a year. If there are other issues related to your garage door not working properly, please contact our office. We are here to serve you and ensure that your garage door is safe and performing as it should. We know exactly what our customers need for long-term satisfaction, and we promise that you will be met with the highest standards of customer service and the most preferred quality products.

Had single and double door garage openers replaced as original door openers were over twenty-five years old. Bill and his guys did a great job replacing the original openers with new hardware. Thank you.

We got two single doors installed to replace our originals. The new doors are much smoother and quieter in operation. They also look much better than the old doors ever did. Chuck, the installer, was very friendly and pleasant to talk to. He helped set up and explain everything well once he was done installing the new doors. I had a minor issue with one door that he came back the next day and resolved quickly. Get your doors from Habpro. They'll do a great job and leave you very happy.

Habpro responded within 24 hours for my need to have a lift spring replaced on my double garage door. Everything was done well and work was reasonably priced. No issues at all. I am posting this belatedly, the work was done a few months back and to date everything is working flawlessly. Thanks.

I have used Habpro Garage Doors twice for garage door repair. Both times I have been highly satisfied with the results. Bill, the owner, calls you promptly when you need service and gives a quote over the phone before they arrive. Chuck, who came out to do the repair, is very professional and knowledgeable and walks you through exactly what needs to be done before he begins. He even did some extra things with no charge. I highly recommend them for their honesty and thoroughness.

I have recommended Habpro garage doors to family and friends.The one thing why I highly recommend them is because they have done some work for some single ladies friends and they was comfortable with them and very pleased by the work. They also does good quality work and the pricing very very reasonable.
