The door to your garage works simply and has only two functions: to open and close. But one day it might stop out of the blue. The problems people often encounter with their garage doors are also very simple in nature. Fortunately most problems with these doors can be fixed without the help of a professional. Do-It-Yourself Tips for Garage Door Repair Quick Fix: If the door isnt opening or closing as usual then it is time for some maintenance. Examine the rollers and tracks looking for loose spots and signs of damage. If you havent cleaned the door in a long time and they look dusty take some grease and brush the tracks along with a lubricant. This should get your door back up and running. If this doesnt fix the problem contact a door installer.
Address the Noise: Old garage doors make a loud creaking noise alerting your entire neighborhood that youve arrived home. Noisy doors can be easily fixed by simply lubricating them. You should lubricate the tracks and the sides of the door every 6 months. Do this especially before the winter months arrive. Take some time off to clean and lubricate the door.
Now look at the history of these useful doors. The history of garage doors is story as well. The first garage doors were barn doors. They opened in a very rustic manner. The more stately homes had carriage houses. These were like barns. They were completely separate from the home. They offered a place for horses and their carriages to reside. The separate carriage house was for the rich of the time. Their use was practical with a touch of high style. They were all practicality and not a fashion thing
Jammed Doors: Do you feel like your garage door has turned into a block of ice and wouldnt move? Cold weather can do this to your door. The moisture during the winter season causes the wood on the door to swell and also freezes the tracks. The solution is to increase the heat in the garage for about 30 minutes to loosen the tracks and the door as well. The heat will take away the moisture. If there is no heating equipment in the garage use a blow drier or vacuum blower to do the job. After opening the door clear the ice and water that has collected beneath the door.
Finding a garage heater that works for your needs depends largely on the size of your work area and frequency of use. If you have a smaller garage space or you use the garage as a work space only infrequently then a small electric space heater may be enough to suit your needs. The smaller electric units used as a garage heater are compact efficient and use a minimum of electricity to achieve a maximum of comfort.
