3 Aspects Your Garage Door Service Provider Can Check, Williamsport, Pennsylvania

Your garage door system is probably one of the largest and most-used pieces of equipment in your home. This is why it’s vital to have it inspected regularly by a professional. Here, Overhead Door Co. of Lycoming County in Williamsport, PA, explains what their garage door service providers can check during the maintenance appointment.

3 Elements Your Garage Door Service Provider Can Check During a Maintenance Appointment

1. Hardware Maintenance

When you hire a garage door service provider, your technician will perform a number of inspections and checks to ensure it's working properly. They will examine the hardware for wear and tear or rust and replace parts as needed to ensure smooth operation. Additionally, they can take care of little issues, like irritating grinding or squealing noises. 

2. Weather Sealing

Garage Door ServiceIn heavy rains, the seal at the bottom of your garage door keeps water out, protecting your vehicles and other property. But, over time, the weather seal can deteriorate, and, eventually, will need to be replaced. Your garage door service provider will inspect the seal and repair or replace it as needed.

3. Door Safety

Garage doors are made from steel, aluminum, or wood and can be very heavy. Especially if you have an automatic opener, your garage door can actually pose certain safety risks. A contractor will ensure your door has the correct amount of tension to best protect people or objects from damage or injury. They will also make sure the auto-reverse feature on your opener is working. This way, you can quickly re-open it if something or someone is underneath a closing door.
