Signs Your Garage Door Needs a Tune-Up

Regular maintenance is essential to ensure that your garage door functions properly and safely. Here are some signs that indicate your garage door may be in need of a tune-up service:

  • Garage Door Balance: If your garage door seems to be improperly balanced, it may not open or close smoothly. Our experts can adjust the balance to ensure it operates correctly.
  • Noisy Operation: Unusual noises during the door’s path, such as squeaking or grinding, could be a sign of worn-out components. Our garage door specialists will identify and address these issues.
  • Slow Door Opening: If your garage door is taking longer than usual to open or close, it may need a garage door opener adjustment or maintenance.
  • Visible Wear and Tear: Look for signs of wear, such as peeling paint, rust spots, or damaged weather stripping. These issues can be addressed during a tune-up service.
  • Lack of Lubrication: Proper lubrication of rollers, hinges, and other moving parts is crucial for smooth operation. Our team will apply white lithium grease or spray lubricant where needed.
  • Inconsistent Auto-Reverse: The auto-reverse feature is a basic safety feature of garage doors. If it’s not working correctly, it can pose a safety hazard. We will ensure your door’s auto-reverse feature is functioning correctly.

Importance of Garage Door Maintenance

Maintaining a home can be a chore, especially when it comes to ensuring everything is working as it should.
