Unfortunately, as useful and convenient as automatic garage door systems are, they can be a real nuisance when they break down. In order to reduce the likelihood of that happening, and to be able to get the most out of the mechanism, we recommend that you have our technicians service your door on a regular basis. The maintenance we will perform will nip minor issues in the bud before they develop, and ensure that the system is operating at peak efficiency.
Opener Related Problems
There are a lot of issues that can cause your door's motor unit to start malfunctioning. It's therefore imperative that you have the opener's safety features tested regularly, to make sure that it is still safe for you and your family members to use. Our team will check the alignment of the photo eye sensors and the functionality of the auto-reverse mechanism. If the force or travel limits need to be adjusted, or if any part needs to be replaced, we will take care of it on the spot.
Safe Spring Adjustment
The hardest working parts of the system, a.k.a the springs, need to be checked as well, to ensure that their condition hasn't degraded past the point of usefulness, and that their tension is adjusted correctly. We will perform a balance test on your door, and increase or reduce the tension of the springs accordingly. This will alleviate some of the strain they're under, and make sure that your door stays perfectly balanced.
Track and Roller Inspection
The rest of the hardware parts of the system also need to be examined to ensure they're not about to cause a problem. Our team will make sure that the tracks haven't developed any dents or rust, and that the rollers haven't worn out or broke. In addition, we will lubricate all the system's moving metal parts (excluding the tracks, of course) to ensure that the door's movement will be as smooth and silent as possible.
