You need to make sure that your hard work does not end in serious injury. Alternatively, call our company and have our experts take care of all your maintenance requirements.
Not such a good tradition
It's almost iconic to see kids playing softball or basketball in front of their garage. Having a basketball hoop above a garage door feels like a quintessential part of childhood. It's not a good idea though. The constant battering your door will take can severely dent its panels, which can lead to costly repairs, not to mention, compromise the system's operation.
Do not lubricate nylon garage door parts
For maintenance purposes, many of the moving parts of your garage door can be applied with the appropriate lubricant. However, plastic components, more specifically, nylon coated ones, should not be lubricated. Lubricating nylon coated rollers, for example, is not going to yield any benefit and may even damage the plastic material.
