It’s About Time for a Garage Door Tune-Up

You service your car on a regular basis, so why not be sure your garage door is working properly, too?

It’s easy to forget, but nevertheless essential, to review your garage door and its workings, and this is an ideal time to do so. The average door opener can last about 12 to 15 years, and there are many other working parts on your doors that can wear out during that time.

To make sure everything is working appropriately, the crew at A.S.A.P. Garage Door Repair, in Huntley, provides professional inspection, lubrication and adjustment of your garage doors and openers before disaster strikes on a frigid day.

The process begins with a quick inspection to make sure everything is working. This will include a review of the cables that help to lift and lower your door. Over time, these cables can become frayed or rusted, and certain conditions can accelerate their wear.

At the same time, your service tech will also look at the safety sensors, those “photo eyes” that sit toward the base of your garage door track. They’re critical for keeping your family safe.

Speaking of safety, A.S.A.P. service techs also test and balance the garage door while inspecting and replacing any damaged rollers. In fact, replacing and upgrading rollers alone can make the door significantly quieter.

Weather seals on the bottom and sides of the door can wear out and dry up over time, leaving openings for critters and cold air to sneak in. The bottom one, in particular, is often replaced during a professional inspection.

Lubing and adjusting your garage door is generally an easy task if you’re the kind of person who prefers the do-it-yourself approach. For the at-home handyman, A.S.A.P. Garage Door Repair maintains a fully stocked parts department and the experience to help guide you through any uncertainties.

“We’ve been in the garage door business for over 30 years, so we understand the value and need for proper maintenance of your garage door,” says Aaron Poling, company president. “We know what it takes to keep things in good shape.” ❚
