Garage door overhaul

03/29/2014 Back To Blog

As time progresses, every aspect of life tends to change. More so in the case of mechanical and electrical equipments that make life quite comfortable for us. Garage doors are no different as every part works really hard even during a single open-close cycle and it gets worn out over the years. Homeowners need to ascertain when it is time for a total garage door overhaul and in most cases this is a more economical and viable option than replacing the entire door. Let's look at a few indicators that will inform you when it's time for a total overhaul.

Springs

When any garage door opens and closes, there are a number of parts that swing into action. Springs are critical components that tend to wear out over time. Ideally springs should last up to 10 years depending on their usage. If they have not been replaced before this time, then it's better to replace them with a new set that has never been stretched as this helps in balancing the tension.

Rollers

Rollers help the door move effortlessly up and down the track and if they are worn out, then the problem starts. This will add extra burden to the springs and other components are shorten their life span too. In addition to this, it will be a serious safety hazard. Replacing springs means less strain on the opener and other parts and the noise level is also reduced.

Cables and pulleys

Frayed cables need to be replaced with strong ones that can balance the weight of the door. Worn out pulleys tend to scrape on the track's angle and even the rivets may give away. In such cases the bearing plates need to be replaced.

It's a good idea to think of an overhaul during summer months as this will help prepare the garage door for winter.
