Garage Door Opener Maintenance

Do you like to save money? A professional tune-up on your garage door opener is an easy way to prevent future repair bills. The team at Boulder Overhead Doors would love to help you out and make sure your opener is working efficiently.

Steps You Can Take to Maintain Your Garage Door Opener

A properly maintained garage door opener should last up to 30 years, depending on your usage. However, a neglected opener is expected to last only about 10 years. There are a few things you can do as a homeowner several times a year to make sure your opener is working at its full potential:
  • Take a cloth and remove dirt/debris from your tracks to make sure your opener isn’t having to work harder
  • Lubricate your rollers with an oil-based lubricant
  • Lubricate your opener chain or rod, if your model requires it
  • Inspect your opener for any loose or fraying wires
  • Tighten all the bolts on your brackets
  • Make sure you never force the opener to close when things are in the way of your door
If you take care of your opener, chances are pretty high you won’t have to replace it in your lifetime, which will save you hundreds.

A Professional Tune-Up

Another important part of taking care of your garage door opener is to schedule an annual tune-up. We will generally perform the tune-up while we do a safety inspection. It is important to have a professional eye on your system from a person who has been specially trained to take care of your garage door. We will also check the balance of your garage door. If it isn’t balanced, it will cause strain on your tracks, rollers, springs, and, most importantly, your opener. This simple test can end up saving you hundreds down the road.

Why Garage Door Maintenance Is Important

The garage door is commonly left out of home maintenance. We often find ourselves doing repairs on garage door systems because they have been neglected. What most homeowners don’t realize is that proper maintenance can prevent large repair bills down the road. If you take care of your garage door system and make sure to get your yearly tune-ups, you probably won’t have to call us for repair. If just one thing is off, it can cause wear on the rest of your system, causing it to break. When you do maintenance and inspections, you can take care of these little things before they cause the big things to break.
