Why should I have my garage door serviced - Uxbridge Ontario

Why should I have my garage door serviced?

How long has it been since your garage door was last serviced?

It is important to periodically inspect and service your garage door and garage door opener to ensure that they work at peak performance and to prolong the life of the door. Servicing your door and opener addresses wear and tear issues before they develop into major safety concerns.

You can visually inspect the garage door once a month, taking a look at cables, springs, tracks, hinges, and rollers for signs of wear. Some of these parts are under extreme tension, so do not attempt to adjust, repair or remove these parts or anything attached to them. If a specific problem needs to be addressed, schedule an appointment with one of Upright’s trained technicians, to have the parts serviced, and make the necessary adjustments and repairs.

Upright Door Service Inc. recommends an annual service of your garage door and garage door opener, unless a specific problem arises.
