Why Choose General Maintenance for Your Garage Door?

Frequently Asked Questions

We recommend scheduling general maintenance for your garage door at least once a year. However, the frequency may vary depending on factors such as usage, climate conditions, and the age of your garage door system.

For instance, if you use your garage door frequently or live in an area with extreme weather, more frequent maintenance may be necessary to ensure optimal performance and longevity.

While some basic maintenance tasks, such as visual inspections and lubrication, can be performed by homeowners, we highly recommend hiring a professional technician for comprehensive garage door maintenance. Our technicians have the knowledge, tools, and expertise to identify potential issues and address them before they escalate.

Attempting to perform complex maintenance tasks without proper training and equipment can lead to accidents, injuries, or further damage to your garage door system.

The duration of a general maintenance service appointment can vary depending on the size and complexity of your garage door system and any additional services required. On average, a standard maintenance appointment typically takes one to two hours to complete.

However, our technicians will provide you with a more accurate estimate based on your garage door's specific needs.

Several common signs may indicate your garage door is due for maintenance, including:

  - Unusual noises such as grinding, squeaking, or banging
  - Difficulty opening or closing the garage door
  - Uneven movement or jerking motions
  - Visible signs of wear or damage to components such as springs, cables, or rollers
  - Sagging or misalignment of the garage door tracks

If you notice any of these symptoms, it's essential to schedule maintenance promptly to prevent further damage. This ensures the safety and functionality of your garage door.

It's essential to review the terms and conditions of your garage door warranty to determine what types of services are covered. In many cases, routine maintenance may not be explicitly covered under the warranty. It is considered the homeowner's responsibility to ensure proper upkeep of the garage door system.

However, regular maintenance is often recommended by manufacturers to maintain the warranty validity and prevent issues that may arise from neglect or improper care. We can provide you with a detailed inspection report after each maintenance service. You can keep it for your records or provide it to your warranty provider if needed.
