Garage Door Maintenance Basics

If you’re like many others, you may not understand exactly how your garage door works. Here are the basics!

Each garage door has the same essential parts, but there are three types of door openers available on the market that may affect the operation of your particular garage door.

Chain Drive Openers

This type of garage door opener works like a bicycle chain, pulling the trolley (the part that pulls the door open). Chain drive openers are extremely noisy and are usually found in detached garages.

Screw Drive Openers

This type of garage door opener uses a trolley on steel-threaded rods to quickly move the door. This is the most straightforward type of garage door — simple, functional, and quiet.

Belt Drive Openers

A belt drive door opener is quiet in its operation but has a similar function to a chain drive garage door opener.

Garage doors have dozens of other elements working alongside of door openers, including the following parts:

  • Tube shaft
  • Tension spring
  • Drum
  • Track
  • Safety sensor
  • Cables

When one of these parts breaks, it can throw off your whole garage door system, leaving you with an inoperable door, which can prevent you from retrieving your vehicle from your garage. Maintaining your garage door can give you the chance to find and fix minor problems before they turn into large, expensive ones!

Why Do You Need Garage Door Lubrication?

Part of preventative maintenance is keeping your door running smoothly on its tracks. When it’s not seated correctly, parts have a greater chance of breaking due to friction. A simple garage door lubrication done as part of our regular maintenance routine helps your garage door to run more smoothly and quietly.

Additional benefits of garage door lubrication include:

  • Helping the door to move without force
  • Extending the life of the parts
  • Preventing damage or rusting

At Ideal Garage, our trained technicians will lubricate hinges, springs, tracks, rollers, and other small parts of your garage door. We recommend maintaining the lubrication by repeating the process every six months. Lubrication is standard with our garage door maintenance package.
