- What is garage door maintenance?
Garage door maintenance, or garage door tune up, is a service that every garage door should be provided with, at least every six months. The maintenance include lubrication of some of the garage doors parts, and tune up and adjustments to the garage doors parts. The garage door maintenance, is also an option to inspect the garage door and the parts of the garage door, for broken parts, loose parts, and for small tune ups that will improve the performance of the door, and that will try to guarantee that the door will continue to serve you just like every garage door should. We recommend that the maintenance, which is not a complicated job, will be done by a professional garage door contractor that can detect problems that you may miss.
If you decided to do the tune by yourself, please make sure that you know exactly what you are doing, since not all the garage doors parts need to be lubricated, and lubricating of the wrong parts, may even damage the parts. Also, make sure that everybody in the house be aware that you are performing the maintenance, so none of them will try to use the door, while you are working.
- What is rolling gate maintenance?
Some people tend to ignore the need for a rolling gate maintenance. They assume that since the roiling gate has worked perfectly until today, why it shouldn’t work like that in the future. The thing is that just like your car need to be inspected and tuned once in a while, although you can still drive and use it, so is the rolling gate.
A rolling gate maintenance will extend the life of the rolling gate parts, and help the gate to work in a smoother way. Ignoring the need for maintenance, can lead to a stuck rolling gate, and that can occur at the worst timing, and it will probably going to cost you much more time and money, than if you would of maintain the gate on time. Beside the greasing and the lubrication, a rolling gate maintenance is an opportunity for the rolling gate technician to check the rolling gate and locate broken parts, or parts that need to be replaced.
Again, although a rolling gate maintenance isn’t a complicated process, we recommend that it will be performed by a rolling gate technician that will make sure that the gate is safe to use, and that it will continue to operate for many years.
- How to fix a broken spring?
The springs of the garage doors, whether it is a torsion spring or extension springs, are under a lot of tension, and should only be repaired or replace by a professional garage door technician. Note that not every spring will fit every garage door! If you use the wrong spring for your garage door, not only that the door is not going to work in a prefect way, it can even be dangerous, to you and to people who come near the door. The spring system is calculated in a way that every garage door should work with the right spring for it.
If your garage door is working using an extension spring system, it is important to make sure that there are safety cables installed. The reason for the safety cables installation, is to try and eliminate, or minimize the damage that a broken spring, which is under a lot of tension can cause. If your spring is broken, ask the technician who came to replace it to install safety cables, which is not a complicated work, but that can protect the people or the objects which are located near the door.
Please pay attention! A garage door spring can be dangerous. Do not attempt to try to do it yourself.
- How to fix a broken opener?
The garage door opener is the engine that help the garage door open and close in an automatic way. The key to a reliable garage door opener, include few things: the right garage door opener for the garage door, in terms of power and size, a high quality garage door opener from a leading openers manufactures, and a professional installation. Once you get those 3 things, your garage door opener should serve you for many years with zero problems (as long as the garage door is being maintained on time).
Fixing a broken garage door opener is not an easy work, and should be done by a professional garage door tech, that understand the way the operator work, can locate the problem, and that can make sure that the problem will not repeat itself. There are many reasons, that can cause a garage door opener that does not work, and a good garage door tech can repair this problem, and bring the garage door back on track, and the opener to an operable condition.
An important thing, that not everybody are of, is that (by federal law) every automated garage door, should have a safety feature, such as safety sensors, that should protect people or objects who crosses the path of the garage door while it is in move. Please pay attention, that the safety feature is just a backup, and you must always make sure that there is nothing at the garage door path.
