Garage Door Maintenance Checklist

To make sure your garage door stays in top working condition, it’s important to keep up with maintenance. Professional garage door maintenance service can make a world of difference—not just in how your door operates, but how it looks as well.

Residential Garage Door

Regular maintenance can also help keep your garage door safe and help prevent the chances of injury. According to the International Door Association (IDA), the following should be included in your regular garage door maintenance service by professionals:

Garage Door

  • Visual inspection of the springs, rollers, cables, track and pulleys (for signs of wear and tear)
  • Lubrication of moving parts
  • Door balance
  • Reversal test
  • Force setting test
  • Additional safety devices

Garage Door Opener

Many garage door openers can be equipped with additional safety devices. Consider adding a photo eye or edge sensor as an extra measure of safety—you can have professionals install these additional features.

Prevent Garage Door Problems

Once your garage door is not working properly, making loud noises or showing any other signs that something may be wrong, a repair or replacement is required. It would be better (and cheaper) to prevent problems from happening in the first place with professional garage door maintenance on a regular basis.

Sometimes you may just need a garage door tune-up. Other times, a replacement may be necessary, especially if your garage door is older.

However, even with regular maintenance and professional service, problems can crop up. For your convenience, our online store offers items such as:

  • Photo cells
  • Torsion spring cables
  • Operator drawbar plates
  • Remote controls
  • Keypads

A garage door professional can tell you what you need and it’s easy to start shopping!
