Does My Garage Door Really Need An Inspection?The simple answer is yes, your garage door should be regularly inspected. Garage door systems rely on many moving parts and may carry a heavy workload. The opening and closing of your door will cause wear on your system over time. Having your garage door system inspected can help you keep operating costs down by helping you to avoid costly repairs. Pinpointing an issue and fixing it before it breaks will also help alleviate wear on other areas of your system. You will also have the peace of mind to know your system is operating safely.
What Should I Expect When the Technician Comes?You should expect our technician to show up on time to your appointment with the equipment they need to do the inspection. Then they will inspect the system and look for areas of concern such as:
- Misaligned Tracks
- Worn Springs
- Visible Rust
- Loose Bolts or Nuts
- Check All the Safety Features
- And much more...
How Often Do I Need My Garage Door Inspected?Your garage door should be inspected annually. If your door receives heavy use then you may want to have it inspected twice a year. Also, the manufacturer of your specific door may have a specific maintenance schedule for your system. If you are unsure when the last time your door had an inspection, it is probably a good idea to make an appointment. Our friendly team can also help you determine how often you need your door looked at.
What Issues Should I Look Out For?While having a qualified technician inspect your door is best there are things you can be on the lookout for. Make a habit of looking over your system monthly and checking for things such as:
- Worn Parts
- Gaps in the Springs
- Unusual Noises
- Visible Rust
- Damage to Panels
