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.

My garage door top panel was broken and bent. I contacted 2 different garage door companies who quickly quoted a price to replace the entire garage door. I then contacted Habpro and I am so glad that I did! They requested that I send them pictures of my garage door and were able to give me a reasonable quote to repair the door. They explained what they intended to do and set an appointment for the next day. I was kept informed of my tech's arrival. Jared arrived on time and he was professional, courteous and knowledgeable. He fixed my garage door and added additional hardware to improve the structure of the door. The job was completed in about 30 minutes. I have already referred Habpro to my neighbor. This was a great experience!

I have used Habpro on 2 separate occasions over the past years to repair broken springs on our garage door, most recently in May 2024. Both times Bill and his team have been very quick to respond and had someone onsite to complete the repair in the same day at a reasonable cost. The guys completing the repairs have been great to work with and told me exactly what was going on and took care of business quickly and efficiently. They are my first choice, and I would recommend Habpro to anyone looking for garage door repair.
