Garage Door Maintenance: Regular Preventative Care and Inspection

by | Jan 21, 2022 | Garage Door Repair

Most people don’t spend a lot of time worrying about their garage door unless it malfunctions. It’s one of the most neglected parts of a home. Your garage door is probably the largest moving system of your home. You use it countless times throughout the year. All of that friction and movement can result in considerable wear and tear on the hardware and the door itself. To keep your garage door in top working condition and avoid emergency repairs, you should have it checked regularly. Here are some benefits of regular garage door maintenance. 

Prevents Damage

Maintaining your garage may not be at the top of your home improvement to-do list. But taking care of it can prevent problems with the rollers, cables, openers, and springs.

Keeping your garage door components in good working order will increase the longevity of the system. Your garage door may seem heavy and sturdy, but it’s made of a thin layer of steel that’s easy to damage. 

If the cable snaps, the springs pop, or the rollers break, your door can move out of alignment and become seriously damaged. Regular maintenance can prevent these issues and save you money on garage door repair.

Protect Your Home and Vehicle

A faulty garage door system can damage the door, but it can also damage your home or vehicle. In most cases, these doors malfunction as you are trying to go in or out of the garage.

If your car is under the door as it malfunctions, it could fall on your vehicle, leading to serious damage. Even worse, the door could hit someone as they’re walking in or out of the garage.

Door malfunctions can damage your home as well. Garage doors are heavy. When they fail, they can damage the structure around them.

Protect your home and vehicle with regular garage door maintenance.

Increase the Security of Your Home

A solid garage door can help prevent intruders from entering your home. If your garage door is broken, it could make for easier access to your personal possessions and your home.

Think about what you store in your garage. If you’re like most homeowners, there are many valuable items in there, including your vehicle.

There’s nothing worse than coming home and realizing someone has come into your garage or home and violated your personal space. Keeping your garage door in good shape can help increase the overall security of your home.
