Tip #1: Read the Manuals on Your Products
One of the best ways to extend the life of your garage door is by reading the manuals from the products you buy for it. We’ve all bought a set of furniture and thought to ourselves, “Surely I’ll have this done in an hour or so” only to spend the next week poking and prodding at the furniture set.
However, if you read the instructions, it maybe would have only taken a few hours. The documentation provided by these companies was made to make using and maintaining their products convenient.
Tip #2: Lubricate the Moving Parts on Your Door
On that note, another important method to extending the life of your garage door is lubrication. Your garage door depends on moving components to keep opening and closing smoothly. These components depends on lubrication to do their jobs properly. Lubricating your components allows for them to work without unnecessary resistance and can extend how long the parts operate until the next service.
