Why Your Garage Door Needs a Tune-Up Dacula, GA

Why Your Garage Door Needs a Tune-Up

Garage door opening system

Just as with most things you own, your garage door needs an occasional tune-up to continue working properly. When you stop and think about how much you rely on your garage door, the valuables you keep inside your garage, and your loved ones who enter and exit your garage on a regular basis, you will quickly realize how important it is that your garage functions as it should.

Your garage goes through a lot during a single year. If you only opened and closed your garage door twice a day (once when leaving and once when returning home) for an entire year, that would equate to 730 times your garage door has been operated. Now, consider that most people open and close their garage doors multiple times a day, making the number of times the garage door is in operation upwards of 1,500 – 2,000 times a year – and you are in desperate need of a tune-up. Not to mention that dings and bumps, constantly changing weather, and normal wear and tear will take their toll. Over time, garage door springs can lose their tension, cables can fray, and tracks can bend. These damages can lead to your garage door malfunctioning, resulting in costly repairs. Faulty garage doors also have a much higher chance of causing harm to your family and friends.

Garage Door Tune-Ups are Important

Below are the top reasons why your garage door needs a routine tune-up:

Safety, Safety, Safety

It cannot be stressed enough that a garage door is a heavy moving object. Hundreds of people are severely injured and killed each year from being crushed by a falling garage door. Not only do you want to protect yourself from an ugly lawsuit, but you want to protect those you care about from a dangerous situation. When your garage door does not open or close, wobbles, becomes stuck on the track, or skips on the track, your home and your loved ones are vulnerable. You need an entry and exit to your home that is safe and secure.


In case you haven’t noticed, we don’t live in the 1950s, where people used to leave their doors unlocked all of the time. Unfortunately, dangerous intruders reside in every county and city in our state, and you need a way to keep them out of your home. Garage doors provide an extra layer of protection to your home. A closed garage door is a buffer against unwanted intruders. If you cannot rely on your garage door to operate correctly, your home may be more vulnerable to dangerous intrusions.

You also need to think about protecting your home from pests, snakes, and rats from encroaching into your garage. During the summer and winter, especially, animals are constantly looking for safe havens from the extreme elements. A dry, insulated garage provides plenty of space for unwanted guests to make themselves comfortable.

Reliable Operation

At HABPRO Garage Doors, we hear all time from customers who finally call us for a tune-up that the “last straw” was how their garage door makes them late. Most people use a garage to park their vehicles. When a garage door is not operating as it should or is moving very slowly, it can put you at risk of running late to work and making appointments on time. This frustration can be avoided by a yearly inspection and tune-up to ensure that your garage door is functioning correctly.

Had single and double door garage openers replaced as original door openers were over twenty-five years old. Bill and his guys did a great job replacing the original openers with new hardware. Thank you.

We got two single doors installed to replace our originals. The new doors are much smoother and quieter in operation. They also look much better than the old doors ever did. Chuck, the installer, was very friendly and pleasant to talk to. He helped set up and explain everything well once he was done installing the new doors. I had a minor issue with one door that he came back the next day and resolved quickly. Get your doors from Habpro. They'll do a great job and leave you very happy.

Habpro responded within 24 hours for my need to have a lift spring replaced on my double garage door. Everything was done well and work was reasonably priced. No issues at all. I am posting this belatedly, the work was done a few months back and to date everything is working flawlessly. Thanks.

I have used Habpro Garage Doors twice for garage door repair. Both times I have been highly satisfied with the results. Bill, the owner, calls you promptly when you need service and gives a quote over the phone before they arrive. Chuck, who came out to do the repair, is very professional and knowledgeable and walks you through exactly what needs to be done before he begins. He even did some extra things with no charge. I highly recommend them for their honesty and thoroughness.
