What Should be Done in a Garage Door Service?

Garage Door Services Perth

Many homeowners in Western Australia would agree that their garage door is an essential asset to their property. This large piece of machinery offers the convenience of allowing you to enter your home with just the push of a button. What is more, it improves the kerb appeal of your property. We may neglect its importance, but the fact remains that we use garage doors every day to get out or access our homes quickly. It also serves as a barrier of protection for the vehicles and personal belongings stored in our garage.

For many, they only realise the importance of a garage door once it starts to malfunction. Before that happens, you should call Professional Garage Door Services for routine inspection and maintenance. Here are some of the things you can expect our qualified technicians to do:

Check the Moving Parts for Wear and Tear

The first thing we do is to perform an overall inspection. We’ll look around the doors to see if there are any damages. What’s more, we’ll check to see if there is any rust or breakage in the hinges, tracks, roller wheels, cables, and screws. Our technicians will observe the door’s movement and record if it is smooth or jerky. We will then listen to its sound so that we can identify any grinding and scraping noises. From our diagnosis, we will recommend the proper solution to any issues we find.

Check the Motor for Any Worn-Out Parts

There are several things to check in a garage motor unit. However, before we do anything, we will unplug it to ensure safety. We’ll open the motor unit and check the antenna wire hanging down from the logic board. This component must be securely attached. Otherwise, we’ll have to repair it along with any loose connections we find. 

Our technician will also check if you have a  bulging capacitor or faulty sprocket. If that is the case, then we’ll recommend a replacement and or repair as the most cost-effective solution. 

Check the Spring Tension to Prevent Cables from Slipping

You must be mindful if you have older springs. Remember that the garage door springs are under high tension and are tightly wound. So, they are usually the source of accidents and injuries. Understand that everything—including your garage door springs—will eventually meet the end of their lifespan. No matter what springs you use, they will eventually wear and eventually break.

Now, if you have an older garage door, you must call Professional Garage Door Services for regular inspection. Our technicians will check if any part needs replacement. If your door has multiple springs, we will check both—even if only one of them is faulty. Doing so will help prevent causing damages to the door later on.

Check the Hinges for Wear and Tear

It’s easy to ignore a garage door’s hinges because of their size. Even so, they are an essential component, especially since they ensure the proper closing and opening of a door. What is more, the hinges allow the door to follow the track accurately to eliminate any swinging movement. Once they wear out, it may be challenging—if not impossible—to open or close your garage door safely.

If the screw plate has deteriorated or become loose, our technicians will replace the screws with the correct nuts and bolts. Now, if that solution does not fix the issue, there may be an actual breakage. In this case, we’ll need to replace the hinges entirely.

Check the Signal/Battery of the Remote

Most of the time, garage door problems point back to the remote control. If you’ve tried replacing the batteries and the remote still won’t work, allow our technicians to inspect it. We will check for any issues by pressing the ‘learn’ button on the motor unit. In this way, the remote can find a new signal to pick up. In some cases, resetting the remote or motor can get the garage door to function normally. 

It’s also possible that there is radio frequency interference. If you have home security or garden lighting, it may create radio interference. If you have video game consoles anywhere near the garage, then it may cause the opener to stop working. In this case, the solutions will be limited. We’d recommend switching the types of light bulbs you use or moving the console somewhere far away from the garage.

I called Ryan when my roller door would not open. He was willing to help me trouble shoot the problem, listening to me frustratingly rant. I then had an unexpected emergency and he still took the time to tend to property for me. Legend of a human, extremely helpful.

Absolutely can not recommend these guys enough! My garage door completely died with no warning and no function at all! On a weekend! Hubby works away, leaving me and the little one alone most of the time and I was not safe with a non functioning garage door. Within just a few hours, Tony arranged ?Drew? To come out and replace the dead motor, key all the remotes (including an extra one!) In lightning speed, with 100% professionalism, excellent workmanship, a demo and explanation of how to use all the buttons including how to operate in a power outage. If you need high quality products, excellent workmanship and friendly customer service, do not look any further!

I cannot recommend Professional Garage Door Services enough – with Ryan being everything you could want in a tradesperson. When my garage door opener appeared to have died, I called a couple of companies & was given simply a replacement cost. However when I called & spoke with Ryan, he spent 10 minutes talking me through different ways to check if it was indeed a problem with the opener & not an electrical issue within or around my house. Who does that?!There was absolute transparency about the installation process and cost & everything was delivered as discussed. To put it simply – Ryan’s just really good at his job! so if, like me, you’re hit with an unexpected repair or replacement of your garage door opener, my advice would be to just call PGDS – you won’t need to make a second call.
