Tuning Up Old Rusted Garage Door Parts

If you’re facing rusted up garage door panels or any other piece of your door, you may be able to clean them up. For panels, scrub vigorously with a hot soapy solution. Sand it and then finish by repainting it. When it comes to other parts like torsion and extension springs, nuts and bolts, hinges, and more, you can use a rust remover and scrub them. Make sure to apply a light layer of lubrication afterward to prevent metal on metal contact. If some pieces have been neglected for years, then they may be too rusted to salvage and will need replacing by your local repair company.
