A working garage door is important not only for the safety and security of your home but also your convenience—nobody wants to be locked out of their house!
Regular garage door maintenance can make a significant difference in how your door operates, helping prevent these types of problems. It also helps keep your garage door working correctly and the safety of your home uncompromised.
According to the International Door Association (IDA), the following should be included in your regular garage door maintenance service by professionals:
- Visual inspection of the springs, rollers, cables, track and pulleys (for signs of wear and tear)
- Lubrication of moving parts
- Door balance
- Reversal test
- Force setting test
- Additional safety devices
Many garage door openers can be equipped with additional safety devices. Consider adding a photo eye or edge sensor as an extra measure of safety—you can have professionals install these additional features.
How to Help Prevent Maintenance Problems
If your garage door is not working properly, making loud noises or showing any other signs that something may be wrong, it needs to be repaired or replaced immediately. But it would be better (and cheaper!) to prevent problems from happening in the first place with professional garage door maintenance on a regular basis.
Keep in mind though—even with regular maintenance and professional service, problems can still arise. For your convenience, our online store offers items such as:
- Photo cells
- Torsion spring cables
- Operator drawbar plates
- Remote controls
A garage door professional can tell you what you need and answer any questions you have.
