Servicing & Maintenance


Keep it running better, for longer.

Regular servicing and maintenance of your garage door is a cost-effective way to increase the life of your garage door. And yet, it’s something that many owners neglect. This can lead to catastrophic failures and expensive repair bills.

Why servicing is important

There are many moving parts in a garage door. In fact, its whole job is to move: up and down, over and over again. Every time it does its job, there is minute wear and tear on its components. The spring loses tension. Lubricant is eroded away. Grime builds up. Over time, all these little bits add up and can cause major damage.

The most common problem we are called for is motor burnout. What a lot of people don’t realise is that the motor isn’t there to lift your door, it’s just an aid. The heavy lifting is done by the spring. As the spring loses tension, this puts undue stress on the motor leading to premature wear and, eventually, failure. Regular servicing will prevent this from happening, keeping your more expensive motor from requiring early replacement.
