Regular maintenance is the key to ensuring the longevity, safety, and efficiency of your garage door. Our comprehensive annual tune-up service is designed to identify and address minor issues before they escalate into costly repairs.
Lubricate all hinges, bearings, and overhead door torsion system parts
Lubrication is crucial to prevent friction and wear on moving parts. Hinges, bearings, and the overhead door torsion system are critical components of your garage door. Applying a high-quality garage door lubricant to these parts will ensure smooth and quiet operation. Lubrication reduces noise, minimizes wear and tear, and extends the lifespan of these components.
Adjust opener as needed for proper travel and function:
The garage door opener is responsible for the automated opening and closing of your garage door. Proper adjustment is essential to ensure it operates smoothly and safely. Adjusting the opener involves fine-tuning settings such as travel limits, force settings, and safety features. This ensures that the door opens and closes fully, stops when it encounters an obstacle, and functions reliably.
Adjust and torque any loose brackets, mounts, and fasteners:
Over time, vibrations and usage can cause brackets, mounts, and fasteners to loosen. Loose hardware can compromise the stability and safety of your garage door. Regularly inspecting and tightening these components ensures that the door remains securely in place, reducing the risk of accidents and damage.
Inspect, adjust, and lubricate all belt/chain drive openers as needed:
Belt and chain drive systems are commonly used in garage door openers. Regular inspection ensures that these systems are in good working condition. Adjustments might be necessary to maintain proper tension, and lubrication is required to minimize friction and noise. A well-maintained drive system ensures reliable operation.
Inspect cables for signs of fraying
Garage door cables play a critical role in supporting the weight of the door. Inspecting them for signs of fraying or damage is essential for safety. Frayed cables can snap, leading to a dangerous situation. Replacing damaged cables promptly is crucial to prevent accidents and ensure the door functions properly.
Test and align all safety systems for function and adjust as needed
Safety systems in a garage door are designed to prevent accidents and injuries. These systems can include sensors that detect obstacles in the door’s path and auto-reverse mechanisms. Regular testing ensures that these safety features are functioning correctly. If adjustments are needed, they should be made to ensure that the door responds appropriately to any potential safety hazards.
