The Price of Unqualified Maintenance
Garage door maintenance is a complex task that requires significant professional training. Hiring an amateur to perform service might seem like a way to save money, but they stand a good chance of making a small mistake that gradually develops into a major problem.
Garage door technicians have to be absolutely certain that everything in the door is adjusted properly, as the constant heavy weight that these components are under leaves very little margin for error. An errant adjustment can turn into a complete system failure in short order, possibly with personal injury or property damage as a consequence.
When you call Trust Garage Door Service, you can be certain that you are getting a technician with updated industry training and certifications. Each of our technicians is educated and equipped to handle every type of service that we offer, and to do so quickly while maintaining safety throughout all steps of the process. We've served Elmhurst in this way for many years and we plan to continue for many more.
Garage Door Checkup
Garage doors are complex mechanical devices made up of a number of parts that have to work in tandem. Quite often, the failure of one part means the failure of the whole system. Trust Garage Door Service technicians can be scheduled for regular preventive maintenance inspections that reveal failing parts before they cause a catastrophe, however.
Our preventive checkup service consists of a thorough inspection of the door to ensure that all of the parts are working properly and are showing no unusual signs of wear. Particular attention is paid to the track assembly, panels and springs, since these represent the most common points of failure. In addition to inspecting and replacing any parts that are suspect, the Trust Garage Door Service technicians will lubricate and make adjustments to parts where necessary.
Once the technician has completed the inspection and maintenance, they will communicate any issues they have found in a simple and straightforward way so you can make the most informed possible decision about potential repair or replacement. Our technicians can also offer advice on upgrades that will make the area more secure and more functional.
Off-Track Garage Door
The smooth and regular operation of a garage door is entirely dependent on the track assembly. A very common issue with these doors is that they will come out of alignment with their track for one reason or another. When this happens, potential problems range from slow or incomplete motion to the door being stuck in place. The door's cable is the usual culprit when there is a sudden track misalignment. While these cables are usually robust and meant for years of use, they are under considerable pressure and will eventually wear out. The breakdown of a cable can also be accelerated by climate, such as exposure to extreme temperatures or consistently being exposed to moisture. When a cable completely fails, the door will hold in place and become inoperable. Unfortunately, this usually happens when the door is partway open, leading to a security issue that has to be addressed immediately. Garage doors are also equipped with safety sensors designed to detect objects in their path when closing. If an object is detected, the door ceases to move. A sensor malfunction can cause the door to errantly trigger its emergency stop function. Alternately, if this safety sensor stops working properly, a collision with a vehicle or other solid object is often enough to throw the door off its track. Trust Garage Door Service technicians are familiar with all of these issues and can resolve them quickly for you.
