What maintenance can I do by myself, in order to avoid costly repairs in the future?
There are very simple procedures you can perform on your gate to prolong its life expectancy and avoid sooner-than-needed gates repairs. First thing you need to do is lubricate the gate 2-3 times every year; this includes: the hinges, the spring(s), and the rollers. This will insure that you will get the longest life out of the hardware you already have, and will give you the best chance to avoid costly repairs.
If I have multiple springs for my roll up door and one happens to break, should I replace all of them?
Yes, you always want to replace every spring at the same time. This is because not only do you receive a better price and warranty when all done together, but each spring has the same life expectancy as the other – once one breaks, the other is going to break very shortly afterwards.
Should I attempt to service my roll up door myself?
Absolutely not. roll up springs and hardware are all under extreme tension and can cause serious injury or even death. Not only could you severely injure yourself, you could end up doing more harm than good, therefore increasing repair costs.
