Garage Door Inspection

A garage door system has many moving parts, and moving parts are designed to wear out. Even if your garage door seems to be working fine, you could have a worn-out torsion spring, frayed cable, or another failing part, which could be an accident waiting to happen. With an annual inspection, we can identify any worn-out or failing parts and replace them before they become a serious problem. Here are the essential functioning parts of a garage door that we inspect when we come to your home:

  • Inspect, adjust, and lubricate springs
  • Inspect tension springs
  • Inspect section condition
  • Inspect door alignment
  • Inspect and lubricate all rollers
  • Inspect and tighten hinges and hardware
  • struts will be looked over
  • Lubricate all bearings
  • Inspect cables for wear or damage
  • If your garage has safety cables, we will inspect those as well
  • Inspect locks for proper operation
  • Inspect weather-stripping for wear or damage

Once we make sure your door is in optimal working condition and have installed any replacement parts you may need, we can give you tips on how to maintain your garage door yourself in the intervening time between our annual visits. If you have not had a garage door tune-up or inspection in over a year, then there is no time to waste.
