Your garage door, even when operating normally, will still require regular servicing and preventative maintenance to ensure trouble free operation.
Regular maintenance not only promotes longer product life and ensures the manufacturer's warranty is maintained, but also greatly reduces the risk of inconvenient operational failures ans costly repair bills.
In many cases, spring “fatigue” means that dangerous amounts of strain are being transferred to your remote control system. If left unchecked, this can lead to expensive repair bills and inconvenient product failures. Most modern garage door systems are counterbalanced via a spring mechanism. Metal fatigue ensures that the constant cycling of your garage door will reduce the amount of lifting force applied to your door via the counterbalance mechanism. This reduction in lifting force in turn puts greater strain on the automatic drive system and if not regularly addressed, can lead to costly drive train failure and in some cases replacement of the drive unit itself.
Included in general service is the re-tensioning of your spring system to counteract this effect and reprogramming your drive unit in line with new parameters. Checking all fixing points, making mechanical adjustments and lubricating where necessary will ensure that your garage door continues to give trouble free service.
