If You Use Your Garage Door Instead Of Your Front Door, It’s A Great Idea To Get A Yearly Tune Up

By: webadmin | October 29, 2018

A large percentage of people have replaced the front door as the primary entrance to their home and instead use the garage door. The garage offers a higher level of convenience for entering the house particularly if it is snowing, raining, or if you have groceries to unload and not to mention if you park your car in the garage.

If you continuously use your garage door instead of your front door to enter your home, you should make sure to schedule a yearly tune up. Using your garage door so much will lead to normal wear and tear that when overlooked can lead to bigger issues or costly damages. The best way to extend the lifespan and maintain efficient operation of your garage door is by planning for preventative maintenance.

An annual garage door tune-up by a professional garage door service company is the most effective way to keep your garage door in good working order while inspecting the door for potential safety issues. During comprehensive garage door maintenance, service technicians will first perform a visual inspection and check all components for wear or damage. They will also listen to the door as it opens and closes listening carefully for abnormal noises, grinding or other noises that may indicate a problem. A balance test is then done to check the condition of the garage door springs. Technicians will also close the door to test the door’s manual function by pulling the red emergency cord.

Yearly garage door tune-ups from a professional garage door company will thoroughly check all cables, springs, rollers, track, weather seals, along with the door itself, the motor and garage door opener.
