When Its Time To Call The Garage Door Services

Time To Call The Garage Door

Professional garage door inspections and maintenance can extend your garage door’s lifespan and ensure it’s functioning properly and safely. You might be wondering how often you should have a technician come out and perform routine garage door service. Keep on reading to find out!

Standard Garage Door Maintenance Schedule

If you’re not experiencing issues with your garage door, preventative maintenance is recommended once annually for normal use. If you use your garage door frequently, you might require more frequent maintenance or servicing. Having said that, if you have any safety concerns or suspect any problems with your garage door, stop using it and have a professional come out and inspect it.

Below is a list of signs that you should schedule an appointment now versus waiting for your regularly scheduled garage door maintenance appointment.

1.Sagging Sections

Check and test your garage door’s balance at least once a year. This will involve you disconnecting the door’s opener and operating the door manually. Now, bring the garage door down about halfway and leave it like that. The door should not continue rising or falling. If it does, there’s something wrong with your door. Don’t check or attempt to repair any of the door’s components on your own, particularly if you’re inexperienced because this could be dangerous.

2.Slow Response Time

Check to see how long your garage door takes to respond to your commands. Usually, it shouldn’t take more than a second or two for it to open or close after you press the opener. Once you press the opener, your door should begin opening or closing smoothly without any delay or hitching. If you notice there’s a delay in its operation, it might indicate a problem with either the opener or the door. You should have a garage door technician come out and inspect it.

3.Malfunctioning Photo-Eye

Check to see how long your garage door takes to respond to your commands. Usually, it shouldn’t take more than a second or two for it to open or close after you press the opener. Once you press the opener, your door should begin opening or closing smoothly without any delay or hitching. If you notice there’s a delay in its operation, it might indicate a problem with either the opener or the door. You should have a garage door technician come out and inspect it.

4.Malfunctioning Photo-Eye

The rollers keep the door running up and down its track smoothly. But, rollers can become:

  • Broken
  • Bent
  • Worn

This can make your garage door noisy or stop it from functioning altogether. It can also cause bent hinges. You would need a roller replacement garage door repair in this case.

5.Broken Cables

The pulley and cable system of your garage door’s operation is a complex system. The cables can break off the pulleys. Fixing this yourself, even though it’s an inexpensive job, is complicated and dangerous and isn’t recommended.

Keep in mind, your garage door is the heaviest and largest moving part of your house. Any type of repair or service to it can be potentially dangerous. It’s never recommended that you try any repairs yourself. If you’re in need of any type of garage door service, contact YNS Garage Door today!

Glass and Full View Doors

Glass and full view doors like the AVANTE™ Collection from Clopay offer a great, modern take on the garage door, with an aluminum frame and customizable glass panels that allow you to control exactly how much privacy and light you allow into and out of your garage.

Carriage Doors

If you have a more traditional home, you may be interested in exploring one of our carriage house-style doors, like something from the Clopay COACHMAN® Collection. These are beautiful doors that look like Old-World swing-out doors but have the convenience of modern overhead operation to give you the best of both worlds.

Wood Garage Doors

WFor some, the natural wood look is an absolute must when it comes to your garage door. We have plenty of options for you to choose from. If you must have natural wood through and through, we can offer you options like the Clopay Limited Edition Reserve Series Collection, beautiful, handcrafted doors built to last. If you prefer the lower maintenance of steel, we’re happy to offer you composite doors with steel cores and wood cladding, or steel, fiberglass or aluminum doors with Clopay’s Ultra-Grain® wood finish, which is nearly indistinguishable from actual wood by look and feel.

Windload Doors

When you live in Texas, hurricanes and heavy wind storms can be a real concern. We offer WindCode-rated, hurricane-resistant doors to protect your garage in the case of severe weather conditions.

Insulated Doors

Many of the doors we offer can be installed with insulation, including a number of Clopay doors that sandwich a polystyrene foam-insulated core within layers of steel. These doors can not only save you a tremendous amount on energy costs by helping to prevent heat from escaping your home in the winter and from getting in in the summer, but they can also make your door more durable and impact-resistant.

Garage Door Conversions

Another popular service we offer is converting a two-door garage into a one-door garage. You don’t necessarily need two doors for your two-car garage, and turning it into one door can give your garage door a cleaner look and give you added convenience.
