When we go out to repair a garage door, so often we hear from our customers that they never considered having routine maintenance performed on their garage door. Considering that it is the largest and heaviest moving part in the entire home, it is surprising that more people do not pay closer attention to their garage door(s). In most instances, a call is not made until a garage door stops working properly. However, in most circumstances, the exact reason for the call could have been prevented through proper, regular maintenance.
It is recommended that all homeowners should have their garage door(s) inspected periodically. An annual inspection will typically cost around $100 and should include a tune-up, adjusting springs and cables, lubricating moving parts, inspecting all safety sensors, tightening hardware, inspecting tracts and hardware, and inspecting the operation of the automatic opener. Because most issues with garage doors involve one of these components, having them inspected can save money, headache, and even a life.
Broken springs of a garage door can cause the door to come crashing down, crushing anything – and anyone – in its path. It is always better to put in the necessary effort in maintaining your garage door than suffering through a traumatic loss or expense. By staying on top of your garage door maintenance, you will protect yourself and your family from dangerous accidents and expensive repairs.
