Garage Door Maintenance Service
Advanced Overhead Door NC provides affordable garage door preventive maintenance through scheduled service visits and safety inspections rather than pressuring you for new garage door installation before it is necessary. Even though garage door parts are manufactured to be durable and provide years of use, no component is immune to normal wear and aging. All should get some maintenance and care.
What’s included in our garage door maintenance plans?
Maintenance is a key requirement of garage door care. You depend on your garage door and opener on a daily basis, so to make sure it will function normally for years to come you need a regular maintenance plan.
Below are some of the checklist items included in any garage door service maintenance plan performed by one of our technicians at your residence or commercial facility. Some items may not be necessary if our technician determines the part’s condition or setting is in compliance with the manufacturer’s maintenance recommendations (e.g. rebalancing the garage door, adjusting counter balance spring tension).
Door panel items checklist:
- Inspect panels (sections) and windows
- Inspect and clean track
- Inspect and tighten all bolts, screws, hinges
- Inspect and lubricate all springs, rollers (wheels), hinges, bushings
- Inspect weather stripping
Garage opener items checklist:
- Inspect power supply and electrical components
- Inspect and tighten all bolts, screws, loose wires
- Inspect and lubricate sprocket and chain (tighten sagging chain if necessary)
- Inspect and adjust force, limit and travel settings
- Inspect and align safety reversing sensors
- Inspect and replace all batteries and lightbulbs
Monday to Friday from 8AM to 5PM. Closed on Saturdays and Sundays.
Why is garage door maintenance important?
Do you know the last time your garage door or opener was inspected? Or had it maintained? If you are like most people, you can’t recall a date, or bothered to setup a scheduled maintenance service plan. You shrug it off as not important, but think again. Garage door maintenance is more important than you think. You never want to put it off until something breaks and it won’t open or close properly in an emergency situation.
- Extend garage door lifespan
- Avoid emergency garage door repairs
- Improve family safety
Over time every garage door or opener will eventually need replacement. Something that is exposed to the weather and used multiple times a day for years is eventually going to break down. Garage doors are no exception to this fact. However, to prevent an early system failure or extend your door’s lifespan, we recommend all our customers purchase a service maintenance plan.
How often should my garage door be serviced?
That answer depends on numerous factors, such as your garage door’s condition and age, frequency of use, and local weather conditions. For example, in our North Carolina service area we experience mild seasonal variation over the course of the year. However, in the past five years we have seen abnormally hotter summers and colder winters, so being more vigilant of your garage door’s condition is all the more necessary.
We recommend any residential garage door be inspected and serviced at least once a year. Some commercial doors may need a semi-annual or quarterly inspection with maintenance. It all depends on door usage. For example, shipping and warehouse companies operating around the clock have overhead doors that require frequent maintenance.
When you schedule a free estimate, one of our maintenance technicians will carefully determine the best garage door maintenance plan that meets your unique needs.
