Garage door spring cleaning – maintain or replace?

March 8, 2021

Your garage door made it through the worst of the winter, so what now? Garage door maintenance in Akron, Ohio, is especially important as winter gives way to spring. The changing temperatures, freezing and thawing, and ice build-up in joints can cause bending and fractures in the springs, roller and tracks of your garage door and can cause cracking in the weatherstripping.

A spring inspection can get you ahead of trouble with your garage door and opener and possibly prevent an emergency.
