With the cooler weather in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, it’s
time to think about how we’re going to maintain our garage door
system to avoid, or at least minimize, any potential garage door system
problems that could interrupt our Winter travel plans.
Just as we maintain our car to prolong its lifespan and keep it in top
notch condition, we need to do the same for our garage doors and openers.
An annual tune up and service can help provide you with years of trouble
free operation from your garage door system.
So what does maintaining your garage door look like? The professional technicians from
Dave’s Garage Doors will check your system for the most common garage door problems.
Torsion springs are located, just above the garage door and provide the
tension that keeps your garage door closed. They bear the weight of your
door during opening and closing. Unfortunately, springs do break and need
to be replaced. A door with a broken spring is exceptionally heavy and
should not be forced open. Attempting to replace a broken garage door
spring yourself is very dangerous and should always be left to the professionals.
Garage Door Openers
Sometimes your door may not close all the way, reverses before reaching
the ground or experiences phantom operation. These are common problems
that can easily be diagnosed and repaired by an experienced garage door
technician. Correcting problems when they first arise will extend the
life expectancy of your garage door opener.
Cables can come off the drums or even break for a number of reasons. While
the cables themselves are relatively inexpensive, replacing them can be
complex. Attempting to force a door open or closed when the cables are
off or damaged is dangerous and should not be attempted. Call the professionals
to prevent further damage to your system or to yourself!
Over time, rollers can bend, become damaged, or just plain wear out. A
roller that’s not rolling correctly can result in your door malfunctioning
or not operating smoothly. There are also different types of rollers available,
nylon rollers can make your door run smoother and quieter than you ever
Whether it’s a visor remote, a keychain fob or a remote keypad, there
are several things that can go wrong with your garage door opener remote.
Often times, your remotes need to be cleared and reprogrammed to keep
your opener operating correctly; other times, they may need to be replaced,
your professional garage door repair technician can help you with either issue.
Your garage doors tracks play an essential role in the smooth operation
of your door. If tracks are bent or out of alignment, it needs to be corrected
quickly before it causes further damage to your door system.
Weather seal, on the sides and bottom of the door, is crucial to keeping
weather, rain or snow as well as pests and insects out of your garage.
These can erode or become damaged over time and often need to be replaced
in homes with harsh weather conditions.
