We know that often times we don’t hear from homeowners until they have a problem with their garage door. We definitely understand why—as long as it’s working fine, chances are you don’t even think about it! But what The Door People from Overhead Door Company are here to tell you, is that we recommend annual service on your garage door. Having a garage door professional examine your door and operator once a year gives a professional time to lubricate parts that need it, look at the alignment of your door and adjust it if needed, look and adjust tension limits if necessary, along with seeing if there’s any abnormal wear with other parts. Giving your garage door and operator some TLC is an excellent investment that keeps your door running smoothly when you need it—which for most of us is several times a day!
With your garage door being the largest moving object in your house, don’t ignore it until you have a problem. Be proactive, schedule annual preventative maintenance and keep larger problems or repairs from being needed. While it’s impossible to know if a spring is going to break on a garage door, it is possible to locate fraying cables, bent hinges and rusting parts that will lead to bigger, more costly repairs if unattended to. Having a working garage door is one of those every day luxuries and conveniences that most of us don’t want to live without.
If you’re a business owner and have a building or several with overhead doors, routine maintenance is ever so important for your doors as well. Most businesses and industries that rely on the use of their overhead doors cannot operate and sometimes have to halt production if an overhead door goes down. We provide emergency service for instances where a homeowner or business needs our service right away and cannot get by with waiting until the next business day.
