Know which parts should not be lubricated
While doing garage door maintenance, our specialists say that not all moving parts should be lubricated. The plastic or nylon door rollers, door bearings, as well as the garage door tracks are not supposed to be exposed to lubricating substances since it’s unnecessary and may only cause problems.
Choose strong materials
Even if the weather is mild in your region, it's good to have strong garage doors. After all, they must protect you from burglaries, too. Our experts recommend durable materials but also strong support with low gauge steel brackets and tracks. Strong garage doors can withstand anything.
Customizing wooden garage doors
For wood protection, use waterproof stains to treat it. Hemlock, cedar and redwood are some of the wood types you can choose. You may purchase wooden doors that already have designs but you can get it personalized. Decide if you want a two or three-layered door and if you want to add windows.
Insulating garage doors
Choose the one with the highest R-value. The different kinds of insulation to choose from are fiberglass, reflective foil, and panel foam insulation. Do not forget the bottom seal to achieve better results. For easier insulation, you can purchase kits that are already pre-assembled and with step-by-step directions.
