25-Point Garage Door Maintenance Program
Garage doors wear over time; the more wear that occurs, the more potential there is for damage and garage door failure. Precision Door Service of Long Beach employs trained, certified technicians who can provide all kinds of garage door maintenance. When properly maintained, a garage door can last for many years and your long-term safety can be guaranteed.
While customers depend on our 24/7 emergency and same-day repair services, our 5-Star Maintenance Program can help you avoid trouble entirely. Our annual maintenance plan considers every part of your garage door system. We start with a visual inspection of garage door tracks, openers, torsion springs, hinges, rollers, and pulleys, determining whether they’re working properly or any repairs or replacements are needed.
Our technicians can lubricate your garage door parts as well. Lubrication helps everything work smoothly and reduces premature wear. Applying a silicone-based spray effectively achieves this. Lastly, we conduct a door balance test. If there’s too much resistance, we will decide whether to make adjustments or repair/replace faulty parts.
Can I Maintain My Garage Door Myself?
Our Long Beach garage door repair professionals are here to address any problem and provide complete maintenance. However, there are problems you can check for. If a pulley is damaged, a cable is frayed, or weather sealing has degraded, it should be visible if you look in the right places. By listening to the door as it operates, various sounds can tell you if something needs to be lubricated or possibly replaced.
You can even do a door balance test. With the door closed, pull the red emergency cord and lift the garage door halfway. If when you release it, the door moves on its own, there may be a cable or spring problem. Call a technician whether it continues moving up or falls back down. If the door stays in place, it is properly balanced.
The Importance of Garage Door Maintenance
When our technicians visit for a maintenance call, repairs and replacements aren’t always needed. We can complete many different tasks. As our technicians inspect the system, they can lubricate cables, pulleys, and rollers and tighten chains, belts, as well as nuts and bolts where needed. Our team can adjust springs, tweak the garage door opener, and lubricate the drive mechanism as well.
We’ll also check the weather seal, making the appropriate repairs and replacements when necessary, and inspect limit switches and adjust them to the proper settings. The infrared sensor is an important part of your garage door. If it’s not working, the door might not function properly and put children and pets at risk. Fortunately, we can test it to verify it’s working or you need a repair.
Reasons Not to Skip Maintenance
Safety: A broken garage door can hurt you. Every year, tens of thousands of people are injured by garage doors that fail. Many heavy parts make up a garage door. High-tension cables and springs can become extremely dangerous hazards when they break, but periodic inspections can spot trouble well before that and our technicians can fix the problem before it escalates.
Security: There are many failure points with a garage door. A broken door is just one. Bad springs, rollers, or a garage door opener can leave your home vulnerable to break-ins. The garage door security system is a major defense. If it fails, intruders may find a way in; after all, thieves love residential garages because they are stocked full of expensive equipment.
Curb Appeal: Your garage door has a major effect on the aesthetic value of your home. Chipped paint, splintered wood, dents, dings, scratches, and other types of wear and tear may not just reduce the visual and functional quality of your garage door, but the overall value of your home.
Cost: Maintenance is typically inexpensive, as is replacing basic parts. But if you wait a long time, worn parts can become significantly damaged and put greater strain on the rest of the system. Prematurely wear can mean replacing more components and perhaps everything, significantly increasing repair costs.
