Garage Door Maintenance, Repairs & Parts
All metal garage doors are like cars, the more you maintain and clean your car, the longer it will last. Some areas of the garage door panel that seldom receive the benefits of rain washing are prone to a build-up of contaminants which can lead to corrosion of the material. To avoid this, wash regularly three to four times per year with clean water and a soft bristle brush, more often if you are located close to the sea or geothermal areas.
The parts of your garage door to pay particular attention to include the curtain face adjacent to the door head and inside over the top of a roller door. So, when you clean your car, clean your garage door too. Timber finishes should be cleaned and maintained according to the timber finish manufacturer’s recommendations.

Maintenance of your garage door and opener is critical to ensuring its smooth, quiet, reliable operation, and in most cases is necessary to ensure your warranty remains valid.
ZINCALUME® AND COLORSTEEL® FINISH GARAGE DOORS
Your COLORSTEEL® garage door has been pre-painted with a silicone modified polyester formulation which is one of the best paint films available today. However good a product may be, all exposed surfaces require some attention to guard against corrosion and any other harmful atmospheric effects.
Washing your garage door with clean water and a cloth every 14 days is recommended. More frequent washing is advised in salty or industrial fallout areas.
Do not wash the automatic opener, it will void the warranty and could cause electrocution.
Wellington Garage Doors recommends that you check the operation of your garage door at least every three to six months (more regularly in extreme environments or with frequent use). The effort required to manually open and to manually close the garage door should be about the same (if door has an automatic opener, put into manual mode before testing the garage door).
