Maintaining Your Garage Door

As a responsible homeowner, you will certainly need to perform various maintenance tasks on your garage door to ensure it functions smoothly and lasts for a long time. In general, homeowners should look to perform garage door maintenance at least once per year, assuming no other issues arise. Please note that garage door maintenance is a potentially hazardous job and homeowners should generally not attempt to carry out the maintenance themselves without prior experience.

Critical Tasks

Perform Safety Tests

First and foremost, our garage door maintenance experts will check to see that there are no critical problems with your garage door that may lead to absolute failure. In worst case scenarios, garage door failure can lead to injury, significant property damage, and/or emergency costs.  Therefore, it’s so important for responsible homeowners to stay on top of things and bring in a garage door maintenance expert from AG Smart Garage at least once per year. To sum it up, with just a little proactive prevention, you can find and fix small problems before they become big ones.

Examine Hardware

Although garage doors seem simple at first glance, there are many moving parts within the piece of technology. Each part needs to be carefully inspected for signs of wear and tear. If even one part breaks, the entire garage door may cease to function, resulting in headache, hassle, and potentially significant repair costs. This is why our garage door maintenance experts will check each of your garage door parts, including but not limited to rollers, cables, drums, bearings, brackets, plates, hinges, tracks, struts, gears, wires, and springs.

Maintain Proper Opening and Closing Speed

Every garage door is built to open and close at a certain speed. If the garage door opens and closes too slowly, that’s frustrating. If the garage door opens and closes too quickly, excessive strain is placed on the hardware of the garage door, which can lead to excessive maintenance repair costs down the line. In order to ensure proper operation of your door, we will calibrate your garage door to open as quickly as possible without putting excessive strain on the hardware.

Maintenance Tasks

Service the Chain or Belt

If your garage door feels janky or produces loud noises as it opens and closes, there is likely a problem with the chain or belt. Our maintenance experts will ensure that the chain or belt is properly tightened, which will result in a much quieter open and close. In addition, we will also make sure that the chain or belt is properly lubricated, which will help to further reduce unwanted noise. Since certain variations of certain chains and belts do not require lubrication, it’s so important to hire a professional to maintain your garage door instead of winging it by yourself.

Service the Seals

Wildlife and vermin getting into your garage is certainly a hassle since it’s warm and dry inside.  As a result, they do everything they can to stay inside, especially during wintertime. Wildlife and vermin are able to enter your garage in the first place due to faulty seals at the bottom of your garage door. We make sure your seals are as close to air-tight as possible so that wildlife and vermin can’t slip underneath. Likewise, proper seal can even prevent insects from getting inside!

Service the Springs

Without well-maintained springs, your garage door certainly struggles to get off the ground.  As a result, excessive strain is placed on all other moving parts of the door. On the other hand, with well-maintained springs, your garage door is able to “jump” off the ground, resulting in a balanced amount of tension on all other parts of the door. Our garage door maintenance expert will inspect your springs and make any required adjustments.

Reduce Friction Wherever Possible

Excessive friction is never a good thing. It leads to corrosion of parts, which in turn drastically reduces the longevity of your garage door. Our experts will ensure that your garage door functions as a well-oiled machine.  Therefore, you can rest easy by knowing you’re doing everything you can to extend the shelf life of a critical part of your home or business.

Replace Batteries and Bulbs

Although replacing batteries and bulbs is a fairly simple task, garage doors often require batteries and bulbs that are not commonly used by the everyday person. Your garage door maintenance expert from AG Smart Garage normally have all of the required batteries and bulbs on hand.  As a result, we can save you hours of work and frustration trying to source them yourself.

Replace Broken or Damaged Parts

If we notice a problem with your garage door during our routine maintenance, we’ll certainly take care of it. In most cases, we will have the necessary parts on hand and be able to make the repairs during the same day. In case we don’t, we will be able to order them from one of our reliable sourcing partners at the lowest price possible.
