How Often Should I Service My Garage Door

While your garage door won't last forever, it must be maintained correctly to ensure proper function, reduce long-term repair expenses, and extend its life. An improperly maintained garage door can cause serious injuries, run up your utility bills, and cause inconveniences. That's why it's important to hire a competent garage door maintenance service to inspect and maintain your garage door. If your garage door needs servicing, get in touch with Bob’s Advance Garage Doors.

So How Often Should A Garage Door Be Serviced?

Many people do not bother to service their garage door after it has been installed. Ideally, your garage door should be serviced yearly unless there's a specific problem that requires intervention. It's never advisable to wait until your garage door shows signs of weakness or when something breaks to call a garage door repair service. Waiting until something goes wrong with your garage door is a dangerous approach that can not only expose you, your family, and pets to serious injuries but will also end up costing you more money in the long run. 

What Does Garage Door Servicing Involve? 

• Lubricating All Metallic Moving Parts 

Your garage door’s torsion springs, tracks, locks, hinges, and rollers should be lubricated several times a year. Lubrication adds a protective barrier against metal-on-metal contact to minimize wear and tear and prevent rust and corrosion. You’ll know your garage door needs lubrication when it produces a lot of noise when you open or close it.  

• Balancing The Door

If your garage door moves up and down when it’s halfway open, you know the torsion springs need adjustment. An imbalanced garage door can put immense strain on your garage door opener and compromise the lifting mechanism, thereby posing serious safety risks.

• Checking bottom seal and weatherseal 

A worn-out bottom seal allows air to enter your garage, making your garage door less energy efficient. Garage door servicing should include checking the bottom seal and weatherseal for wear and replace them if necessary. 

• Testing safety features

Safety features such as auto-reverse, motion sensors, mechanical release, and pinch-resistant panels and hinges can fail due to frequent use. Garage door servicing should involve a thorough evaluation of a garage door’s safety features to avoid unfortunate incidences. 

• Tightening Screws And Bolts 

A garage door’s screws and bolts can become loose due to frequent use. If your garage door rattles when moving, you’ll know it’s time to have the screws and bolts tightened by an experienced garage door maintenance service.
