Perform routine maintenance steps once a month. Review your owner’s manual for the garage door. If you don’t have a manual, look for the model number on the back of the door, or check the lock handle, hinges, or other hardware for the manufacturer’s name and request a manual from the manufacturer.

Visual Inspection

Look at the garage door springs, cables, rollers, pulleys, and other door hardware for signs of wear. If you suspect problems, have a qualified person make repairs.

WARNING – Springs are under high tension. Only qualified persons should adjust them.

Garage door springs, cables, brackets, and other hardware attached to the springs are under very high tension and, if handled improperly, can cause serious injury. Only a qualified professional or a mechanically experienced person should adjust them, but only by carefully following the manufacturer’s instructions.

The torsion springs (the springs above the door) should only be adjusted by a professional. Do not attempt to repair or adjust torsion springs yourself.

A restraining cable or other device should be installed on the extension spring (the spring along the side of the door) to help contain the spring if it breaks.

WARNING – Never remove, adjust, or loosen the screws on the bottom brackets of the door. These brackets are connected to the spring by the lift cable and are under extreme tension.


Regularly lubricate the moving parts of the door. However, do not lubricate plastic idler bearings. Consult the door owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommendation.

Door Balance

Periodically test the balance of the door.

  1. Start with the door closed.
  2. If you have a garage door opener, use the release mechanism so you can operate the door by hand when doing this test.
  3. You should be able to lift the door smoothly and with little resistance. It should stay open around three or four feet above the floor. If it does not, it is out of adjustment. Have it adjusted by a qualified service person.

STEEL SECTIONS:Your door has been pre-finished with a baked on polyester paint system.To complete the finishing process, sponge wash the door with a mild powered detergent and warm water. Rinse and allow the door to dry before applying paint. Use a high quality exterior grade acrylic latex paint.Do not use an oil based/ alkyd paint. The paint can be applied with a roller; however, a superior finish will be obtained with an airless or HVLP spray gun. Prior to applying the paint, verify the paint manufacturer’s painting instructions. Be careful not to get paint inside the tongue and groove edges. Failure to do so will result in the paint bonding the sections together, thus, making the door inoperable.

Applying a different color paint to the trim boards will intensify the appearance of the trim boards from the rest of the door.This process is easily accomplished by rolling the paint on to the trim boards with a 4″ foam roller (Two coats are recommended).Applying a 3/8-inch strip of black paint in between the two 4-inch boards that are side by side and spaced 3/8 of an inch apart, will give the at the doors are not connected.

This warranty is non-transferable.
