Keep your Garage Doors working for years with an Inspection Sheet

Because a garage door is used almost on a daily basis, over time there is going to be some wear and tear on the parts. This is why you should make monthly inspections to keep it working perfectly. This is a form of ongoing preventive garage door maintenance. The result is to keep your costs down and your garage door functioning properly. It is a good idea to refer to your owner's garage door operational manual. Keep it close to the garage door for easy reference. We have also prepared a short and basic Garage Door Inspection Sheet to facilitate this process. This Inspection Sheet addresses all the parts of a garage door. The list will help to keep your garage door, opener, racks, and other components working well:

    a Garage door opener:
  • Safety Sensor
  • Motor / Gear
  • Control Panel / Remotes / Keyless Entry
  • Boom / Trolley
  • Bellwire
  • Safety Reverse / Limit Switch

It is best that you open and close your a garage door opener several times to check for each item on the above list one at a time. Look for any part of the garage door that is binding or stops during the opening or closing process, or is loose. Also, be sure to check the safety sensor, to see that it interrupts appropriately when the beam is broken.

    Garage door:
  • Door Balance
  • Tracks
  • Springs
  • Rollers
  • Cables
  • Bearings
  • Brackets
  • Panel Condition
  • Hinges
  • Pulleys
  • Bottom Weather Seal
  • Safety Cable
  • Drums
  • Strut / Truss Rod

Again, check each item above by running a garage door opening and closing cycle for each item. Put your garage door in its manual mode and lift the door to check its balance. In its resting position it should only move a few inches at most. If it moves to the ground or in its upright position, it is an indication the door needs adjustment or a possible repair. Again, don't check several items at one time as you may miss a malfunction. A bent spring or uneven gaps between the coils is a clear indication a faulty spring Also look for signs of wear, stress, or tears in the metal or other places.
