Like anything else in your home, your garage door and opener require regular maintenance to extend the life of the many components that make up the operating system. Because most households use the garage as the main point of entry to the home, the garage door will open and close more than one hundred times per month. Friction caused by the multiple moving parts is largely responsible for parts wearing before their time. With heavy use, hardware becomes loose and may eventually break. Eliminating friction and repairing small problems before they have a chance to become major problems will save you time, money and aggravation.

Comprehensive checklist

Our experienced technicians work through a comprehensive checklist when answering routine maintenance calls. The first thing they will do is conduct a thorough inspection of the system and search for any problem areas. If there are any loose hinges, brackets or bolts, they will tighten them. They will replace any hardware that is broken or looks like it is near failure.

Tracks and Rollers

Cleaning the track of any excess grease or debris built up in the corners will allow the rollers to move freely and eliminate friction. Lubricating all moving parts with the right type and right amount of lubricant is another way to reduce friction. Our garage door specialists know exactly where to add lubricant and they will avoid using too much, which can attract dirt and clog the system.

Garage doors spring adjustment is highly important

A spring adjustment may be necessary if the door is unbalanced. Your will see obvious signs that your door is out of balance. An unbalanced door will not remain locked in the open position. Instead, it will start to slide down. Another sign is the need to use excessive force to operate the door manually. Installing, adjusting and replacing garage door springs is dangerous work that should be done only by a trained professional with the proper tools and experience.

Routine maintenance

Routine maintenance includes inspecting the cables, springs, weather seal, pulleys and drums for excessive wear. Our technicians will let you know if they think you need to consider replacing these parts.

Openers

Your door opener plays a major role in the operating system and also requires regular maintenance. This includes inspecting the motor and lubricating moving parts, including the idler sprockets, rollers and the chain in a chain drive opener or the screw in a screw drive opener. Adjusting the belt or chain eliminates resistance in the system and reduces wear of other components.

Safety mechanisms

Testing the opener's safety mechanisms is another important part of preventive maintenance. The auto reverse system is an important safety feature that prevents the door from closing on a person or an object in its path.

Garage Doors Sensors

Sensors on either side of the door opening detect when an object is breaking the electronic beam and will prevent the door from moving if the user activates the opener by remote control.
