3 reason why servicing your garage door is important

Garage door repair

Did you know that many extensive garage door repairs can be prevented? Over time, the components of a garage door wear down and minor issues become a larger problem. If we detect the problem early on, we can help ensure that the components and mechanism of your garage door are in good condition.

Most homeowners store valuable items in their garages, from expensive vehicles to sporting goods, outdoor equipment, and more. For this reason, we recommend following a garage door maintenance schedule to ensure that the system is in top working condition. The last thing you want is for a garage door to fail during a cold blizzard or coming home to find that an intruder was able to easily access your garage.

The security and safety of your home are the top priority when it comes to garage door repairs. Let’s take a closer look at why servicing your garage door is so important.

Garage door service prevents unexpected repairs

Simple maintenance tasks such as lubricating moving parts, inspecting wear and tear with the garage door opener, and tightening bolts or fasteners can go a long way in preventing more costly repairs down the road.

Some homeowners choose to service their garage door right before the winter months to make sure that everything is in good working order and right before the summer months when they know they’ll be in and out of the house more often. Regardless of the season, garage door technicians will see to it that your garage door will operate all year round.

Garage door services save time and money

Keeping up with regular garage door maintenance will help you save time and money in the long run. Often, homeowners will ignore a noisy garage door or a door that malfunctions only 30% of the time. However, these seemingly small issues are usually a sign that there is a growing problem with the garage door opener or other components. Prolonging small maintenance can lead to bigger repairs or worse, a complete replacement of expensive parts.

Garage door maintenance ensures your safety

While some preventive maintenance can be completed by the homeowner, professional garage door technicians have the right knowledge, tools, and skills to identify issues with the system. Attempting to service your garage door yourself poses a safety risk as there are many moving parts, high-tension springs, and heavy components that can cause serious injury.

For your safety and peace of mind, it’s best to leave garage door services in the hands of a professional. In addition, a reputable company typically offers service warranties to make sure the job is done and done well.
