Why do you need to have your garage door regularly serviced?

Here are 5 things to consider – and they could save you a lot of money!

1. Its the largest moving component in your home.
2. Every garage door has springs which do 95% of your garage door lifting, so having them balanced and lubricated preserves the life of the motor.
3. A well balanced door prevents the cables from popping off the cable drum, a common cause of doors coming of the tracks, and the door runs smoother.
4. Always test the openers auto reverse for safety as they can go out of calibration.
5. Check the tracks are straight, wheels are in good condition, and all the nuts and bolts have not come loose. Also check that the door’s open and close limits have not shifted, especially on the older manual units.
