Garage Door Installation Lincoln, NE

Project Description

A client from Lincoln, NE, was planning a garage door replacement, so they requested a quote from Titan Garage Doors Lincoln NE. Their existing garage door was almost a decade old and needed frequent repair. When our men arrived, they found the rail bowing caused by an improper angle of the door arm. There were also worn-out panels and springs, and the cable was badly corroded. After a thorough inspection, we gave an estimate for a new garage door installation project. Yet, before they even decided, they told us they always wanted a wooden garage door but were hesitant because of its high maintenance and upfront cost. We suggest using steel garage doors, which are more durable than wood. This material requires little to no maintenance while offering the elegant look of wood. The full installation took us two weeks after the purchase order. After this, our client was very happy with their newly installed sectional garage door with an ultra-grain classic medium finish. They tested the door and were ecstatic upon its smooth operation.

Most householders rarely consider their garage door until it malfunctions. Yet, taking a proactive approach to maintenance can help you avoid this trouble. Also, by doing so, you do not have to spend all day in the garage working on your door. Instead, you can use these quick tips to keep your door running smoothly and avoid the need for repairs and untimely replacement.

Tips to Keep Your Garage Door Running Smoothly

Here are some tips to help you keep your garage door in tip-top shape throughout the season.

Do a Door Balance Check.

Opening it manually is one way to tell whether your garage door is balanced. First, disconnect the door from the opener by pulling the manual release rope. Then try lowering the door by hand. A well-balanced door should be easy to raise and lower. Next, raise the door to around 4-5 feet off the ground and let go. The door should stay in place. However, if it slams to the ground or shuts too quickly, you must contact a garage door service to get your door balanced again.

Lubricate your garage door regularly.

Prevent costly repairs by keeping your garage door hardware lubricated. Squeaks and creaks are often a sign that your door needs lubrication. That is an easy and inexpensive fix. You must purchase a non-silicone lithium-based grease for garage doors to do this. Be sure not to use WD-40 or similar products, as they can do more harm than good. Instead, nip this in the bud before it gets bigger (and more expensive) to solve. We advise lubricating the moving parts of your garage door every three months or so to maintain them in good working order. 

Keep your garage door clean.

It is only natural that your garage door panels get dirty over time. Dust, dirt, and grease can build up on them, and this can cause them to jam or stop working altogether. However, most garage door panels can be cleaned with a simple wipe down or a thorough washing. 

Likewise, cleaning your garage door tracks is important to keep your door working smoothly. You only need a little elbow grease and an old toothbrush or rag. Wipe away any gunk buildup (soap and water will not hurt either). You can also use a dab of disc brake cleaner to improve the job.
