What to do!

Maintaining Safety – Next, you will want to do an inspection of basic parts. While there are some parts that you can replace yourself such as the occasional roller or even sections of the door itself, we highly recommend hiring a professional for torsion springs and other high-tension items.

Lubrication – Finally you want to lubricate the hinges and switches on the door. This is important for the proper transference of pressure without stripping or damaging the door. It is important that you do NOT lubricate the rollers as they need to cling to the tracks for safety purposes.
