The professional technicians of our Garage Door Maintenance Shoreline Company will periodically check the mechanical and electrical parts of your garage door for possible signs of damages. Actually, the garage door springs, the metal brackets and the rollers should be examined at least once a month.
The regular lubrication of the moving parts will keep them running smoothly without making any unnecessary loud noises. Our people will also examine the tracks to detect if they are broken or bent. Sometimes, tracks may become skewed from each other and bolts may need to loosen up. The tracks must also be oiled and checked to ensure that they are parallel to the door opening; otherwise, small adjustments are necessary to keep them aligned for proper functioning.
The technicians will also examine the cables because they tend to break or get off drum. The maintenance process focuses on the parts that are mainly responsible for the lifting of the door and its actual opening and closing. Garage door springs must be checked frequently because they carry the heavy load of the garage door. The experts will make sure that they are adequately fastened to the door or the garage door frame. If the garage door springs are damaged, then the technicians will replace both of them for better results in the operation of the door. Detecting the good condition of the springs is not that hard, if you consider that damaged springs will not lift the door or will lift it with extra effort.
Professionals will also check the condition of your weather strip and they will replace the bottom rubber that will keep your garage nice and warm during the heavy days of winter. They will also examine the base of the door to ensure that there is no rust or decay, since this is a major problem with metallic garage doors.
