Garage doors are a very important piece of equipment but, like a lot of gear, they tend to deteriorate over time and need to be replaced. So, the question to ask is if your garage door is working as well as it did when you first purchased it. A garage door is a multi-functional piece of equipment that needs to be kept as functional as it possibly can be. Aside from the obvious functions of protecting your cars and belongings from being burglarized, it can also help keep your home safe from thieves. While this depends highly on where your garage is located, if it is directly adjacent to your house then having a working door will help in blocking a potential entry point which thieves can use to get into your home.
Servicing your garage door means repairing it by performing preventative maintenance to improve functionality. But the next question is how to know when it needs this because it isn’t always as easy as looking at the door and seeing that it needs repair work done. These are some signs that you need to look for.
Opening and Closing Problems
If there are times when you have trouble with opening and closing your garage door or if the door moves extremely slowly, then those are some signs that it has issues. If your door is not promptly responding to signals from its remote control, then you may have any one of several issues which can eventually lead to the door ceasing to work entirely. Fortunately, all the issues that can cause this are fixable if you catch them early enough. So, make sure you call for a professoinal if you notice any of these issues and there shouldn’t be any more problems.
This can be something as commonplace as rust on the door, chipped paint or worn tracks. While these problems may be cosmetic, there is no reason to risk it. Servicing the door will both improve the visuals and extend the durability of your garage door’s parts.
Even though your garage door may be in excellent shape today, it’s smart to schedule a maintenance tune-up at least once a year to make sure that no unexpected problems crop up.
