Do you hear your garage door throughout the house when it opens and closes? Can you always tell when somebody arrives from the loud squeak?
There is a difference between the normal operation noise of a garage door versus the noise that cries for repair. Think about this for a second, if you were cruising down the freeway and heard a loud squeak from your front wheel, you would probably immediately go to the repair shop to find out what is going on. The garage door is the largest moving appliance on your home. With a regular maintenance about every 2 to 3 years you can keep your garage door from failing on you when least expected.
It is a good idea to use a lubricant on your garage door to quiet the squeaks and normal operation of metal on metal. A good silicone-based lubricant will do the job. If the noise is your hearing have a pop or buckling sound, or if it does not quiet down after lubrication, it’s time to call a professional.
