When is The Best Time For a Garage Door Tune Up?

Your garage door is a hardworking component of your home. It endures constant use, shielding your car and belongings from the elements while providing convenient access. But just like any other machine, regular maintenance is crucial to ensure its smooth operation and longevity. At Advanced Door, we understand the importance of preventative care. Here, we’ll explore the telltale signs that indicate your garage door might be due for a tune-up:

Unusual Noises:

  • Grinding, screeching, or clanging sounds: These noises can indicate worn rollers, loose hardware, or a malfunctioning opener. A tune-up can identify the source of the noise and prevent further damage.
  • Uneven or jerky movement: If your door opens or closes unevenly or jerks sporadically, it could be due to misaligned tracks, worn springs, or a faulty opener. A tune-up can address these issues and ensure smooth operation.

Performance Issues:

  • Slow or sluggish movement: A slow or sluggish door might be struggling due to worn components, lack of lubrication, or an overloaded opener. A tune-up can identify the culprit and restore optimal performance.
  • Difficulty opening or closing manually: If you struggle to open or close your door manually, it could indicate a serious issue with the springs, opener, or other components. A professional tune-up is vital to diagnose and address the problem before it leads to a complete breakdown.

Visible Wear and Tear:

  • Cracked or broken rollers: Worn rollers can create noise and hinder smooth operation. A tune-up allows for replacement and ensures optimal performance.
  • Loose or damaged hardware: Loose screws, bolts, or other hardware can create noise and compromise the door’s security. A tune-up involves tightening or replacing damaged hardware to ensure proper functionality.
  • Worn weatherstripping: Damaged weatherstripping allows drafts and moisture to enter your garage. A tune-up includes an inspection of weatherstripping and replacement if necessary for optimal energy efficiency.

Preventative Maintenance is Key:

Remember, even if your garage door seems to be functioning properly, scheduling a regular tune-up is crucial for preventative maintenance.
