How to Extend the Life of Your Garage Door

Garage doors are marvelous pieces of equipment that keep vehicles safe and out of inclement weather. But like any other household item, residential garage doors don’t last forever. In fact, the more you use your garage door, the faster it will wear out. Typically, residential garage doors can last up to 30 years, but that’s only if the door isn’t influenced by outside factors, e.g., it is never used.

But there are things you can do to extend your garage door in the meantime.
