Which garage door parts should be lubricated as part of regular maintenance?
As a rule of thumb, all moving metal parts should be lubricated. These include torsion springs, but not extension ones, steel rollers and hinges. You must never lubricate the tracks as they can become way too slippery for the rollers to move normally. If you have a chain or screw drive opener, you need to lubricate the chain or rotating rod respectively.
What should I consider before buying an insulated garage door?
After selecting the most suitable material, take into account the door’s structure. With the most common steel units, for instance, you can have a single metal layer or two. In the first case, the only option is polystyrene insulation, while in the second one, you can also go for polyurethane. When deciding on the insulation material, consider not only its R-value and thickness, but also its safety and durability.
What is the best garage door panel material?
Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages. Steel is commonly used because it is durable, and requires relatively low maintenance. Wood is considered more aesthetically appealing, and more insulating as well, but requires regular maintenance in order to last. Aluminum is similar to steel insofar as that it requires only minimal maintenance, but it is much less durable and can be prone to dents.
