At Installation
Apply a good quality car wax to the door immediately after installation, unless you are going to paint the door (see accompanying painting instructions). Follow car wax application instructions. DO NOT APPLY WAX TO ACCUFINISH®, ARMORFINIS®, OR ANODIZED ALUMINUM DOORS!

For ArmorBrite™ (powder coated) doors wait a minimum of 3 months to apply wax.

Every 6 Months
Wash the door and windows with a mild soap (such as car wash soap or dish washing soap) and water. Wash both interior and exterior. Rinse thoroughly. Do not use harsh or abrasive detergents. Do not use pressure washer to rinse door.

Wax the door. See "At Installation."

Lubricate track and hinges with a silicone or Teflon based spray. Do not use WD-40 type lubricant (oil based), or grease. Then open and close the door to distribute the lubricant.

Every 12 Months
Inspect springs and hardware for signs of wear. Avoid any contact with the torsion springs as they are under extreme tension. Contact your local Raynor Dealer to schedule a service call if you suspect any problems.

As Needed
Clean off road salt from interior and exterior surfaces. Use a mild soap (such as car wash soap or dish washing soap) and water. Rinse throughly. Do not use harsh or abrasive detergents. Do not use pressure washer to rinse door.

If surface rust appears, immediately contact your local Raynor Dealer for inspection and repair options.
