Find out more about the garage door
While getting the door installed or buying, talk to the installer/ dealer to know more about the garage door. You should be aware of the brand, type and model of commercial garage doors you are getting installed. Ask for the maintenance tips, how to use it properly, what are the signs of damage you need to look and so on. All this information will be very helpful in preventing any damage to the door as well as repairing minor damages yourself. You can also know most of the required information from the user manual.
To make sure that the garage door is working just fine, lubricating all the moving parts is crucial. Lubricate overhead garage door springs with spray lubricant and opener’s chain or screw using white lithium grease.
