1. Protect the finish. Prevent scratches to the panels’ surface for both aesthetic and practical reasons.
3 Take good care of the movable parts. Use the track lubrication product recommended by the door’s care instructions. Tighten any loose hinges and make sure they are bending evenly. Look the track over for debris, loose hardware, or signs of warping. Tighten any loose pads or screws you discover. If you cannot lift the door yourself the track is possibly warped.
4 Establish a simple maintenance routine. If you tried to list all the things a homeowner must do in a year you may find it’s overwhelming. Taking care of a home requires just a little organization. Use a calendar or set electronic reminders to clean and maintain your door regularly. Schedule seasonal spot-checks and maintenance on your regular to-do list. Your organization system doesn’t have to be fancy; it’s more important to find a system that works for you and stick with it.
5 Work with your vendor. Establish a relationship with your vendor and have peace of mind when you need service.
