Not every maintenance tip we have for you is something that requires checking. Two of our favorite suggestions are one-time installations, but we recommend checking these parts when you do your monthly visual check. These installations can increase your door’s safety for just a few dollars and a few minutes of your time.

Let's talk NUTS & BOLTS

The movement of your door will naturally cause the nuts and bolts on your brackets and roller tracks to shift or loosen. Check and tighten all of the roller brackets as well as any bolts that connect brackets to the rail itself. This activity is best performed monthly for preventive maintenance on garage doors.

Maintenance Monday🏡🚗
Clean the Garage Door Surface...

Keep the garage door clean and in good repair.

Wooden garage doors should be wiped down with a clean, dry cloth.
Inspect the surface of the door to see if it needs repainting or staining or shows any signs of insect damage.
Patch any small holes with wood filler, lightly sand and then paint or stain as required.
Wash vinyl or other synthetic garage doors with a soft cloth and appropriate cleaner.
Thoroughly rinse the door with a hose, then dry with a microfiber cloth.
Brush down any cobwebs on the inside of the garage doors and wipe with a soft dry cloth. Go over any needed areas with a lightly dampened cloth.

Maintenance Monday🏡🚗

The average garage door will go up and down more than a thousand times a year. When kept in good working order, it provides convenience and security. But a neglected door can not only become as noisy as a locomotive but also pose a significant safety risk to your family, especially your kids.

To be safe while working on the door, take the following precautions:

Unplug the automatic door opener so it can’t be activated.
If the door is open while you’re working, clamp a locking pliers onto the roller track below a roller to keep it from dropping.

Never remove a lift cable while a door spring is under tension. If released, it’ll cut like a knife.

Never attempt to adjust or release the tension on an overhead torsion spring. This is a job for garage door professionals only.

Keep an Eye Out for Pests/Critters...

Garages are often a very attractive destination for pests and critters. They see it as a safe haven from the harsh weather.

Since most garages have a lot of exposed framing and rafters, pests such as bees, carpenter ants and termites especially like to make garages their home. If you find any of these in your garage, contact your local exterminator to get rid of them and prevent them from coming back.

If you find critters such as squirrels, raccoons or opossums in your garage, you need to figure out where they entered from and patch that up as soon as possible.

If your garage door becomes destroy in the process, please give us a call! DC- 202-909-6726 or DE-302-261-5886🏡🚗

It All Starts with the Garage Door...

The biggest part on your garage is the garage door. Maintaining it isn’t only important for convenience and practicality, but for safety as well.

Keep an eye out for garage door problems such as a sticking, drafty or loud garage door. Many times the solutions are simple, such as lubricating or replacing the weatherstripping, but if the problem goes on for too long, the answer might be something more costly.

Making sure your garage door is working properly and looking good will help increase your home’s value whereas a damaged or broken one will decrease value. If you need assistance with your garage door we are happy to help!

Maintenance Monday🏡🚗

Since we have a ton of time on our hands right now, it is critical to not forget the most important thing about your garage maintenance... Organize and Clean Up!

Perhaps the most important garage maintenance tip that we have, and also one of the most forgotten by homeowners, is to keep your garage clean and organized.

Chances are you store a lot of items in your garage, so you need to have some sort of system in place instead of throwing things around with no real sense of organization.

Keeping your garage neat and clean helps improve the look of it and increases safety in the garage, which is very important.

A lot of times, homeowners don’t really put as much effort as they should when cleaning and organizing the garage. When you do this, it’s only a small matter of time until the area is cluttered again.

In order to effectively organize your garage, you must first start with a plan so you know what’s going to happen instead of just going with the flow. Then, throw out, sell or donate anything you don’t absolutely need. Doing this will clear up a ton of space you never thought you could have.

Once you’ve gotten everything gathered that you’re going to keep, there are so many ways you can store and organize things. From the walls to the ceiling, the methods of garage storage are nearly endless.

A good tip to follow is to label things and keep them filled with what’s on the label in order to avoid confusion and mess. Remember, a clean garage means safety! Safety first, always!

Don’t Forget Your Garage Floor...

You might be thinking, “Why do I need to maintain the floor? It’s just a slab of concrete.” You need to make sure your floor is in good condition because it’s the base of your garage.

Depending on how you use your garage, the floor takes a beating from vehicles to tools and everything in between. If you let the floor get damaged, it’s only a matter of time before you start seeing more problems.

Over time, your garage floor can crack and end up causing leaks and foundation problems if not taken care of. You must also remember to routinely clean your garage floor – a clean home is a happy home. A good way to remember this is to include it whenever you vacuum or clean your floors inside the house.

There are many garage flooring options available to help keep it protected and preserved for many years to come. Not only do they provide protection, but they’ll even enhance the look of your garage which can boost home value as well. Ask us!

MORGAN - SMYRNA, DE

"I had to go to work and my door would not open....the motor was running but nothing was happening. I call Capital City Jessie reassured me that everything would be okay and she sent Joe (who happened to be her husband) out right away. He got to me in about 20 minutes!!!!! He explained that the door was just disengaged from the opener (stupid me) he showed me how to re-engage it should it happen again in the future....he didn't have to do that but he took the time to show me anyways. Me not knowing anything about garage doors and being a single Mom he could have easily taken advantage of the situation and told me a bunch of stuff that was wrong and I would have been none the wiser. He was extremely honest and instead only charged a small service fee. I now realize that there is still honest people out there and Capital City Garage door is one of them."

Do you know about our Donate-a-Door Program??🏡🚗

Why We Started It...
When we moved and expanded our service area to DE, we started getting a lot of service calls in more rural areas as opposed to the over populated Washington DC Metro community, our birthplace and still our service area. We noticed a larger number of disabled Vets and disabled elderly people.

In these rural areas, Vets and seniors tend to be more isolated. When it snows, the ice is thick and not traveled on much, so it stays around for a long while. Rains also make even warm summer days very slippery. Homes are often way off of the main roads, and sometimes the closest neighbor is a few hundred yards away.

It is important to us to aid the people who need assistance in our community! If you like to contribute come learn more on our website!

Test the Door Balance...

If your garage door is not properly balanced, the garage door opener will have to work harder, and it won’t last as long. The door should be so well balanced by its springs that only a few pounds of force are necessary to lift it. Test this by pulling the release handle on the automatic opener, then manually lift the door so it is about halfway open. The door should remain in place without your help. If it doesn't, the door is improperly balanced or the springs are growing old and worn. Call us if you need help with springs! Call today... DC- 202-909-6726 or DE-302-261-5886🏡🚗

Groom Your Garage Door...

Don’t forget to examine the door itself.

Wood doors will need to be checked for water damage and warp, as well as chipped and peeling paint.

Steel doors may have rust spots that need to be sanded, primed and painted.

Wash your garage door regularly with mild all-purpose cleaner at the same time you do your car.

Remember, your garage door makes up about one-third of the exterior of your house, so keep it fresh and clean. If you don’t have time to do this kind of check-up, call the garage door professional, Capital City to schedule a tune-up service call. We will fix all… perfectly!
