Do Garage Doors Need to be Serviced?

Do I really need to have my garage door serviced? The answer is… absolutely. Like any other piece of equipment with moving parts, a garage door needs regular maintenance to keep it working properly. Most people should have their garage door serviced at least every 12-24 months. But if you use your garage door more than average (more than 2-3 times a day), your garage door may need to be serviced more frequently.

Why Should I Have My Garage Door Serviced?

Depending on the layout of your home, your garage might lead to the interior of your house. This means that if your garage door fails, your home could be open to the outside world. Even if your garage is isolated from your house, it likely keeps a range of valuable items safe—your car, power tools, bikes, to name a few. If home security is important to you, having your garage door serviced should be important, too.

Also, a regularly serviced garage door is a safe garage door. Did you know that if your garage door malfunctions, it could slam shut unexpectedly? That’s right—your garage door (which probably weighs between 60 and 100 kilograms) could slam down without warning if certain mechanisms break or malfunction. So, get your garage door serviced, for safety’s sake!

Finally, if you avoid servicing your garage door for too long, you could end up with a mountain of costly repairs to tend to. Like most things, if you identify and rectify a problem with your garage door early, it will likely be easier (and less costly!) to fix.

Ready to Service Your Garage Doors?

If you’re ready to have your garage door serviced, remember—DIY jobs won’t cut it. While it might be tempting to try servicing your garage door by yourself, it’s not worth it. Without the proper tools and experience, making any repairs or adjustments to your garage door could be downright dangerous. And, by ‘servicing’ your garage door yourself, you could be doing yourself a financial disservice by not properly addressing problems or creating more problems accidentally. Calling in an experienced, garage door professional is the only way to make sure your garage door will continue to function as it should for years to come.
