Chain drive and screw drive openers drive types will benefit from lubrication.

How long will my garage door components last?
Many garage door components can last for many years, even decades. Garage door springs are the exception - most of them won't last for about six years (based on an average of 10,000 cycles). This is because of the intense pressure they're placed under each time your door opens and closes.
My garage door is getting on a bit, any maintenance advice?
We recommend you check your garage door twice as often for anything that could use a service or replacement. As a garage door gets older it also becomes more vulnerable to a sudden break-down, so pay attention to any components looking worn. In particular, you should inspect your springs and safety-test your opener sensors to ensure they're functioning properly. We also recommend you lubricate any moving parts and treat signs of rust early on.
