Every home-owner should perform garage door maintenance on a regular basis to keep their garage safe, secure, and in perfect working order. Our technicians are available to take this task off your hands and ensure that your garage gets the professional attention it deserves.
The Essentials of Garage Door Maintenance
Unlike straight-forward component repairs, overall garage door maintenance is about monitoring all the various parts to ensure that they are all in top condition. By hiring a professional to monitor the state of each component, you will save yourself a great deal of time and money in the long run. Read on to find out which are the most important parts to monitor for signs of wear and tear.
Spring and Opener Replacement
One of the most common maintenance tasks we find ourselves performing for customers is replacing worn springs before they fail entirely. This is the case with both torsion and extension springs. It is critical to hire a professional to evaluate your springs on a regular basis, as they can suddenly fail without notice.
Even if one of your springs has snapped, you’ll still be able to operate your garage in order to close it and call an expert. However, if the opener mechanism itself has failed, you will likely require immediate service from qualified technicians in order to get your garage up and running again. If the carriage assembly has jammed, the power unit has burned out, or for any problem at all, it is better to call a professional and not attempt to diagnose or solve the problem yourself, thereby risking further damage and injury.
You should always take the time to examine your garage door equipment for any functional flaws. Given the increasingly electronic nature of this equipment, factors like temperature and weather conditions can damage the parts, and even impede their operation. Whether you need to adjust the force-sensitivity or switch out the reversing sensors, trust our team of professional technicians from Garage Door Repair Lehi.
