Clopay Garage Door Maintenance in Gallatin, TN, and Williamson County
How often do you call your garage door service provider for Clopay garage door maintenance near Nashville, TN? If you’re like most people, the answer may be never. But if you care about the life of your garage door, good garage door maintenance is necessary.
What Is Garage Door Maintenance?
Garage door maintenance is regular care of your garage door. The purpose of garage door maintenance is to extend the life of your door and ward off expensive repairs. When you call EXL Garage Doors to schedule regular garage door maintenance, we’ll send one of our highly-trained, experienced garage door experts to fully inspect your door. They’ll make sure the weather-stripping is intact, check the springs and other parts for signs of wear, clear debris from the tracks and rollers and lubricate all moving parts.
Once the basic maintenance is complete, our technician will identify any trouble areas that you may wish to address. For example, they may suggest you replace a torsion spring that looks worn down. Before leaving, they may test the door to make sure it is working properly.
Why Is Garage Door Maintenance Important?
Your garage door system is designed to work day after day, year after year, opening and closing your door at your command. But that garage door system is made of moving parts, and moving parts wear down and wear out. By calling professionals for regular maintenance, you can identify parts that are close to their breaking point and replace them before they break and cause more damage. You can also find issues that may be interfering with the health or proper operation of your garage door you might not otherwise be aware of until they cause a big problem.
How Often Should I Get Garage Door Maintenance?
The frequency of your maintenance checks should depend on how much peace of mind you need when it comes to the health of your garage door. Many people think annual maintenance is sufficient, but semi-annual maintenance is even better, and you should really schedule maintenance for before the beginning of each season. You want to know your garage door is going to close safely during the next blizzard or heat wave. If it’s not, you’d probably rather find out well beforehand.
Whatever schedule you choose for your maintenance, you can also do a little monthly maintenance yourself in the meantime by lubricating moving garage door parts, sweeping debris away from the bottom of your door and keeping attuned to any potential garage door problems.
