I’m often asked by customers around Dallas how long garage doors can last, and it’s a more complicated question than many people may think. A garage door can technically last forever, provided it’s well taken care of, but on average they’ll last about 20 years.
In order to make them last so long, though, you need to perform regular maintenance to keep everything running smoothly. That maintenance includes things like making sure the nuts and bolts of the door stay tight. If the nuts and bolts are loose, they can begin to move around, compromising the integrity of the door and knocking other pieces out of whack. The less they move, the better.
Luckily, with preventative maintenance about once a year, it’s easy to make sure they stay right where they’re supposed to. Stay tuned for more maintenance tips coming soon.
