What Is The Importance Of A Garage Door Tune-Up Service?

There are several reasons to schedule a garage door tune-up service with Team Taylor Doors. If you desire a safe and functional garage door, it’s important to inspect it, tighten everything, and lubricate the rollers. As with anything else in your home, small upkeep tasks ensure a longer life expectancy for garage doors and openers.

Let’s examine all the great reasons to tune up your garage door soon.

Garage Door Tune-Up Service – Extending Garage Door Life Expectancy

You can dramatically extend the life of your garage door and other components by checking on and adjusting the springs, rollers, and cables. What does Team Taylor Doors do during our inspections?

  1. Inspect everything for rust, loose parts, and damage.
  2. Tighten all the nuts and bolts on every mechanism.
  3. Lubricate the hardware, particularly the rollers.
  4. Make sure the garage door springs are still functional and not in danger of popping off the framework.

The garage door rollers are similar to the tires on your car. If you don’t take care of them, the door won’t work right. Just as you wouldn’t want to let your tires run low on air, it’s important to keep the rollers lubricated to prevent them from riding rough or grinding. Whenever you get that metal-on-metal friction on the track rails, you run the risk of really damaging the rollers.

In the event that parts break, which happens eventually, we supply and service everything you need. That means you don’t have to wait a long time for us to special order things. We can usually replace parts within the same day you report a problem.

Even when you’re consistent with tune-ups, you’ll eventually need to get a new door. The timing for replacement depends on how often you open and close it. However, good preventative maintenance can earn you a reliable door for at least 15 years.

Seasonal Changes: Best Times for Service Work

Kansas City experiences significant climate shifts throughout the year. We usually endure a sizable change from hot to cold and back again, which impacts the way the door operates. For this reason, we encourage customers to target these times (right before seasonal changes) to schedule service with us.

Granted, you can obtain our services any time of year, we think you get the most value by having an inspection before it gets cold. That’s when the frigid air causes the hardware to bind, and that can result in loose nuts/bolts, more friction, and other problems.

Repair or Replace a Garage Door?

We want to provide just a little more guidance regarding the dilemma of whether to repair or replace a garage door.

In general, you can stick with cleaning or repairing your door if you encounter minor noises, a few minor dents, or if it’s less than 10 years old. However, it may be time to replace the door if you can’t get in/out consistently, the door becomes unsafe, or cosmetic problems get too expensive to repair.
