How Does Annual Garage Door Maintenance Work?
First, you need to find a garage door maintenance company for New Jersey homes. Liberty Door and Awning is proud to be the annual garage door maintenance company in New Jersey for many homes in the area. We have been a trusted name in garage door maintenance and repair for nearly 50 years and we know just how to inspect and maintain your door to give you a chance at its maximum lifespan.
When you call Liberty Door and Awning to schedule annual garage door maintenance, we’ll send our professional garage door technicians to your home promptly at the scheduled time to begin an inspection. Our technicians will do a full visual inspection of your garage door and all the components of your garage door system, finding any minor issues like frayed cables, torn weatherstripping, rust, loose bolts or debris in the roller tracks. Our technician can usually ratchet up these minor problems right away, tightening screws, replacing weatherstripping and cleaning out all dirt and debris from your tracks and rollers as part of the maintenance procedure.
Cleaning the tracks is very important, as dirty tracks could damage your rollers or cause them to jump their rails, leaving you with an inoperative garage door.
Another important step is lubrication. In the likely event that the moving parts of your garage door system are not properly lubricated, our professional will make sure to lubricate all moving parts to ward off corrosion and breakage and to make sure your door goes up and down smoothly and quietly when you activate your garage door opener.
Your maintenance professional will then check the balance and alignment of the door. If your door is out of alignment or balance, it may not fully close or open, or may close or open too quickly. You may not notice these things on a day-to-day basis, but they can result in damage to your door, your pavement, or even people or things going into or out of the garage if the door slams down unexpectedly. If your door is out of balance or alignment, we will correct it.
Once the entire procedure is complete, our technicians will run through the whole process with you so you will understand everything we did and why. Moving forward, we can offer you tips for doing some regular maintenance on the door yourself, to keep it in great shape between annual or semi-annual maintenance checks.
