  • Lubricate rollers and hinges
    Use your own judgment as to how often you should lubricate the garage door rollers and hinges. If a sectional door does not lift and roll easily, check all moving parts, lubricate, and check the position of all parts secured by fasteners. Your intent is to prevent excessive wear and tear. If a garage door is used frequently then you would naturally lubricate more frequently.

  • Exterior maintenance
    A a wood garage doors needs to be stained and sealed at least every two years to protect the wood and maintain the nice appearance. The outside of the garage should be regularly cleaned and washed with warm soapy water(Car wash)then rinsed with fresh cold water paying attention to the joints between the panels and where there is no contact with rain water. This should be done regularly every month using a soft brush or sponge.

  • Look for loose bolts
    Every time a garage door opens and closes it is putting pressure on the bolts holding the a garage door springs. Look for excessive wear and tear as well. With care you can attempt to tighten them. Be aware that these bolts are holding the springs under high tension. If there is a question of whether these bolts are in danger of being too loose, you should let a trained Valuemax technician fix the bolts safely and to assure yourself that they will hold the springs.

  • Locks
    You should not have to force a lock. Forcing a lock can result in a key breaking off in a lock cylinder. So do not force a key. A graphite-based lock lubricant can be sprayed into the lock and then try to gently work it. If you find that the key is turning freely, but the lock is not working properly, you can check the lock bars on the inside for proper alignment.
