Welcome to Garage Door Care. If you want to learn about how garage doors work, garage door safety and garage door maintenance, you’ve come to the right place!


The garage door is typically the largest moving object in your home. Properly maintained and operated, a garage door and its operating system allow you, your family and your vehicles convenient access to and from your home. They also provide security and protect against the elements. Newer, insulated garage doors even help save energy.

But moving garage doors can also cause serious injury, or even death. While there are some garage door system maintenance chores that you yourself can – and should – perform on a regular basis, there are other tasks (including garage door installation and garage door spring replacement) that are best left to the pros.

If you have children, you should also take some time to teach them that the garage door and its operating system are not playthings.

Please take some time to browse Garage Door Care. We’ll do our best to answer your questions and help you learn about your garage door and its operating system and maintenance of both so that they can provide years of service. We’ll teach you how to perform some routine maintenance chores, and we’ll explain why others need the touch of a seasoned pro. And we’ll outline garage door safety for both young and old.
