Garages are found in many homes, but how do we maintain them? There is nothing worse than a rusted garage door that squeaks and creaks, or worse, gets stuck when you try and open it. This can be a sign that your garage door isn’t greased enough and this can potentially lead to a more serious issue later on. Find out below how to lubricate your garage door.

To make sure that your garage door has a long life, the most effective way to maintain it is by lubricating the moving parts regularly with a trusted product like WD-40®. Using on its rollers, door hinges, locks and pivot points, you can:

  • Displace extra moisture
  • Lubricate and loosen stuck parts
  • Remove oil, dirt and grease
  • Protect it from rust and corrosion

Do you have a grease gun sitting around? Perhaps a small metal tub of some mechanic’s grease that you know would just work great and envelope all those moving parts. Well, the problem with grease is that it’s typically used in locations where it’s not exposed to the elements. Ball bearings and a-arms are either deep within the machine or are protected by boots. This allows the grease to do its job without being subject to dirt and water.

While grease might be lying around your garage and seem to be a great solution, leave it on the shelf. It will end up collecting dust and grime and making more of a long term mess than it’s worth.

Another rather common household lubricant—oil%—might be your next go-to solution to get those rollers to stop their singing. This one even comes in a nice squeeze bottle that’ll let you control its application. The problem with oil is that it doesn’t have a very high viscosity. Oil can be useful for getting into tight spots like small gears but you’ll find that it maintains that liquid consistency.

As such, when this lubricant gets moving (think rotating around the rollers day in and day out) it will have the tendency to spread out and run. Once it has nowhere to go and nothing to hold onto, where do you think it will go next? That’s right, it will simply drip down onto your beautiful epoxy floor. Or worse, it might drip on your vehicle or other tool in your garage.

You can use a silicone spray on your garage door and on the parts that are causing the sound.

WD-40 High-Performance Silicone Lubricant spray is a lubricant in a spray that can be used to protect your garage door by waterproofing the fixtures and therefore preventing rust and corrosion. The lubricant will also prevent parts from sticking and binding.

You can also spray white lithium grease on different parts of the garage door to make it work and roll more smoothly. WD-40 High-Performance White Lithium Grease provides great long-term lubrication and has a high viscosity formula which means that it won’t drip or run. With all of these benefits, it can reduce friction and wear for your garage door leading to a longer life.

The first item on our list might surprise you. There’s quite a bit of debate on whether or not WD-40 (water displacement solution, attempt # 40) is actually a lubricant. WD-40’s fun little myths and legends page addresses this and goes on to refute claims that it isn’t a lubricant. In fact, it turns out to be a special blend of lubricants that make up what they refer to as a “secret sauce”. And nobody knows the recipe. Nobody.

One thing that may be the most important one when it comes to effective functioning of your garage door is proper lubrication. It helps get rid of the squeaky noise when the garage door opens and shuts. And also ensures its smooth and seamless functioning. When lubricating the garage door, the best option is to use a garage door lubricant. This especially works well for the parts of garage door such as the chain rail, metal rollers, ball bearings, hinges, stems, nubs, lock and the arm bar. You can use WD-40 Multi-Use-Product as a garage door lubricant . It not only lubricates the garage door the right amount. But it also provides a protective covering against moisture that leads to rust and corrosion.

WD-40 is a top choice for lubricating garage doors and has been keeping them in top shape for over 60 years. It is widely used because it not just provides lubrication to the garage doors, but also helps in preventing rust and corrosion. It can also withstand heat and cold, making it ideal for garage door lubrication. It also does not get gummy or attract dust the way engine oil or mechanic’s grease tends to.

  1. If your door is not level at the opening, your door may not seal properly.
  2. If your lintel is not level, your door may appear to be off level.
  3. If your jambs or reveals are not plumb the appearance of your door may be affected.
  4. If we are removing an old frame, there is no way to guarantee that brick or other masonry work will not be disturbed. We will carefully remove the old frame, but we cannot be held responsible for damage caused by the removal of the frame. For example, loose masonry or plaster.

For garage doors and front doors, we generally insist that the door be installed after the floor is finished. However, if the finished floor is not yet in, you must clearly indicate where the finished floor level will be on the reveals so that we can install the door at the right height and set the limits on the opener (when automated). An additional call out charge may be incurred if we have to return to make adjustments to either the door or opener.

If your garage is being plastered, this work must be carried out before the door can be installed (including ceiling). Plaster in the track, guides or other workings of the door will damage the door and void your warranty.

HOW TO LUBRICATE A GARAGE DOOR

So, you’ve settled on either silicone based lubricant or white lithium grease, right? Well now it’s time to get lubricating. If you’ve decided on a spray lubricant, your job will be made a bit easier. Especially with a straw nozzle, your can will allow you to get into the tightest of spots around the door.

Preparation: Move any vehicles or other obstructions either out of the garage or out of your way. We suggest you do this not only for safety’s sake, but also to mitigate grease overspray or dripping.

It’s recommended that you lubricate the door parts with the garage door closed and released from the motor. You’ll be applying the grease at the pivot points so you’ll want it to be free-moving.
