About one piece garage doors
One-piece garage doors are one of the oldest garage door systems that are still available on the markets today. Due to some safety issues, one-piece garage doors are being replaced by sectional overhead garage doors that are safer, lighter, and much more durable. In some tight spaces or very low headroom garages, aluminum one-piece garage doors are still being installed. Old one-piece garage doors are made of wood and are very heavy. Most of its weight is dispersed between only two pivot points on the hardware, and due to that fact - one piece garage door spring failure can cause irreparable damage to the hardware. The one-piece garage door's wooden frame tends to expand during the winter and retract during the dry summer month, and that can add different issues. It’s impossible to weather/pest seal the one-piece garage doors. There will always be a ¼ - ½ inch gap between the door and the frame.
To prolong the lifespan of your one-piece garage door springs and the hardware, the system has to be lubricated every 6 to 12 months. Springs should always be kept oiled to prevent rusting. You should lubricate the hardware at all of its pivot points. WD40 is a good lubricant and a great anti-rusting agent. The one-piece garage door wood frame should be checked and waterproofed (if needed) once every 24 months.
