Why You Should Get Your Garage Door ServicedSeptember 4, 2016
For the most part, people don’t tend to give their garage doors a second thought once they have been installed. Unfortunately, forgetting to look after your garage door can soon see it begin to deteriorate.
Garage doors need looking after just like most things, and failing to do so can end up costing you dearly in the long run. The importance of having your garage door regularly serviced, therefore, cannot be understated.
Checking the Springs
Just like any piece of machinery, your garage door needs constant care to ensure that it’s functioning to its full potential. In time, it can get a little worse for wear and it’ll need a bit of attention.
The springs in particular require extra care and attention. Garage doors are heavy mechanisms and the springs are responsible for ensuring that they don’t come crashing down.
They are, therefore, under great amounts of tension and will consequently require a regular service to ensure they are still performing well. Neglect can compromise them, endangering not only your property but you and your family, too.
Sometimes the warranty that comes with your garage door may stipulate that you have a regular service in order to comply with the warranty terms.
The warranty is issued because a manufacturer believes their product will last at least until a certain point so long as it is properly maintained. However, they may be careful to point out that neglect can shorten the life of your garage door.
As a result, a regular service is essential for keeping to the terms of the warranty and avoiding costly repairs or replacements if anything should go wrong during the warranty period.
Increase the Lifespan of Your Garage
Even after the end of your warranty, if you’re careful with your garage door and have a regular service, there’s no reason to believe that your garage door can’t stand the test of time. A service will identify any minor issues in your door’s machinery that might, with time, grow into a major problem, and eliminate them before that happens.
Repairs can be carried out and replacement parts fitted where necessary. Overall, you can save hundreds of pounds by spending just a little on a service every 6-12 months.
Replacing Your Garage Door
Alternatively, a service conducted by an expert can identify major safety flaws in your garage door that may have otherwise gone unnoticed. When that happens, the cost of repairing your garage door may outweigh the costs and benefits of replacing the garage door entirely.
