Garage Door Maintenance Tips
A standard garage door is subject to conditions of operation and environment. Consequent failure of the product will occur if the following conditions exist:
NEVER close the door where an obstruction exists within the opening.
NEVER open the door too fast making the door open past the top of the opening.
NEVER “ride” the door while it is operating.
NEVER force the door to operate. If it does not operate smoothly, something is wrong.
Lubricate all rollers, hinges, springs, locks and bearings once every 3 months.
CHECK for loose nuts and screws, and tighten accordingly.
Have replaced all bent or worn tracks, brackets, hinges, rollers, or springs immediately.
Have spring tension adjusted by an Authorized Garage Door dealer periodically to keep the door in balance.
Maintain a good coat of paint on the wood sections.
Wash your steel garage door sections with soap and water.

Electric Operator Maintenance Tips
A standards electric garage door operator is designed to replace manual operation and control of a door. If a door can not be easily operated by hand, an operator is not the solution to the problem. It is not a winch and should never be used as one.
It is recommended that you ONLY have a TRAINED PERSON adjust and service your door prior to having an opener installed.
Follow the specific operational, maintenance, and testing procedures supplied by the company installing your automatic opener, or call D&D Doors to do it for you, because we do it right the first time!
