When to Call a Garage Door Professional
- When your door doesn’t balance properly.
- When the pivot points on the hardware are worn.
- When your spring breaks.
- When loud or unusual noises occur.
- When your opener does not reverse or malfunctions.
ALL of the above problems can and do eventually result in the door binding, bending or falling.
The best time to call a professional is once a year for what we call a garage door tune up. This tune up consists of a complete inspection of your garage doors hinges, spring tension, and overall condition. Also, an inspection of your openers sensitivity and limit adjustment. A garage door with regular maintenance will usually last forever, with the exception of the springs. Doors and openers usually break when the tension is wrong and puts extra stress on the opener or hinges.
