If you haven’t had your garage door serviced in a while, now is a great time!  Garage door springs can break, especially during the colder months. Doors stick, hinges are loose, and seals wear out, indicating it may be time for a garage door service.

Call an Expert

It’s always a good idea to have an expert come do a maintenance check, which includes:

  • Checking the bottom seal
  • Ensuring the balance of the garage door (springs)
  • Lubing and tightening the moving parts
  • Applying grease (not spray) to the motor rail
  • Making proper adjustments to the garage door opener

An expert will also check and do the following during a maintenance service:

  • Check torsion spring tension and balance
  • Check that cables are not worn or stretched
  • Check roller health – is it properly lubricated and rolling in the tracks?
  • Check that hinges are operating properly
  • Check the exterior vinyl weather trim – is it cracked or brittle? If yes, it may need to be replaced.
  • Check for cracking or stress on steel garage doors or rot and cracking for wood garage doors
  • Check the force and limits of the garage door opener
  • Check tracks for stress or bends
  • Tighten screws on hinges and struts as well as tracks if needed
  • Check bearing plates for wear and bearings
  • Apply spray lube to hinges, rollers, springs, and bearing plates
  • Apply grease (not spray) to the motor rail for smooth operation of the carriage carrier/trolly
  • Check remotes, wall button, safety sensors, and keypads

Once these items are checked and good to go, you’re set for colder months ahead.
