Garage Door Tune-up and Inspection

Garage Door Tune Up and Inspection-Turbo Garage Door

Homeowners use their garage door on a regular basis. It serves as a primary entrance to a home, which means that it goes up and down a tremendous amount of times.

While opening and closing your garage door might seem simple, the process actually involves a lot of working parts. The weight of the door and the constant movement can damage any part of the system, which could lead to serious issues.

To avoid potential problems, it’s important to have your garage door inspected and tuned up on a regular basis. Generally, annual maintenance is recommended; however, if you use your garage door excessively, more frequent inspections and tune ups may be necessary.

The Dangers of Neglecting Garage Door Maintenance

A garage door is one of the heaviest moving objects in your home. As such, should something happen to the system that allows the door to open and close, serious complications could arise. Some of the most common problems that can occur include:

  • The door can come off of its tracks
  • Springs can break
  • The rollers can become damaged
  • Cables can snap
  • The garage door opener can break

Should any of these issues arise, you’ll be looking at a number of problems. Your garage door won’t operate as it should. It could move slowly, get stuck, or completely fall to the ground, which is a major inconvenience. More importantly, these problems can turn your garage door into a dangerous hazard that could cause substantial and possibly life-threatening injuries.

The Importance of Routine Garage Door Inspections and Tune Ups

There are several reasons why having your commercial or residential garage door professionally maintained should be a top priority.

  • Improved safety. First and foremost, the biggest benefit of having your garage door maintained by a professional is improved safety. As mentioned, a garage door that hasn’t been maintained can become severely damaged, and that damage can cause severe injuries.
  • Improved functionality.

    You expect your garage door to open and close as it’s supposed to. Routine maintenance ensures that your garage door is operating properly, improves its functionality, and can lengthen its lifespan.

  • Saves money. By having your garage door maintained regularly, issues can be completely prevented, or they can be identified before they become more severe and require costly repairs.

In other words, having a professional inspect and tune up your garage door on a regular basis is an absolute must.

Talked with Vinny about situation with my mother's old garage door opener and had her schedule them to come out. Vinny came out and saw the issues and nailed the fix. It's an old unit but whenever it needs to be replaced, you know we are going with them. Great job and really glad we found them.
Very fast turnaround time to fix my garage door! Thanks!

One of the springs of our garage door broke unexpectedly and our car was stuck inside. We called Turbo Garage Door and the technician came just a couple of hours later. He did an excellent job. Price is also pretty reasonable! We are very grateful for the almost immediate service he offered.
