Your garage door is one of the most important parts of your home—they offer security, convenience and add to the curbside appeal. While you may need to call Garage Door Repair Dallas, TX for the big repair jobs, and even annual maintenance, there are certain maintenance procedures you can take care of on your own—this can lead to doors that last longer and work better today and in the future.


If you keep your door well-lubricated you are less likely to wind up with an off-track condition—something that could result in a costly repair. Use engine oil or another type of non-greasy lubricant. Choosing the right lubricant, and regularly lubing your door will help the door open and close smoothly.


Garage door springs are a vital part of the door system. Check your springs regularly to make certain they are well-attached and free of rest, dust, and debris. Cleaning the springs can help give them a longer lifespan, and while you clean them, you are likely to notice any damage that needs to be repaired—before the problem gets worse.

Structural Maintenance

Check your doors and the overall structure of your garage door system to make certain there is no damage. A small problem can quickly turn into a big one! If you find the problem early, you may only need to repaint or replace one panel—instead of needing a full door replacement.

If you properly maintain your door and have it inspected by a professional on a regular basis, you can avoid the larger, more-costly problems. However, emergencies do strike. If you find yourself with a problem you can’t fix on your own, call Garage Door Repair Dallas, TX and let us help. Contact us and let us come out for a free estimate today.
