Why It PAYS to Maintain Your Garage Door

By September 15, 2022Uncategorized

The average homeowner has heard of and understands the benefits of regular car maintenance or home system tune-ups. But you may be wondering, what are the benefits of regularly scheduled garage door maintenance? Our team has proudly delivered expert garage door service to Florida homeowners for over 30 years, so we listed some of the benefits of scheduling garage door maintenance below!

Prevents Damage to Home and Vehicle 

Majority of garage doors malfunction during the use of putting them up and down to allow a vehicle to enter and exit the garage itself. Your vehicle could potentially be directly underneath your garage door when it fails. Causing it to fall on your vehicle or a family member who is walking in and out. The potential damage could be catastrophic. If you are lucky enough to have both you and your vehicle out of the line of your door when it fails, the structural damage itself can cause serious harm to your home’s integrity.

Ensures Cost-Effective Maintenance

When you schedule preventative maintenance for anything in life, you can expect a lower overall cost for any repair that comes your way. Address an issue when it first arises, instead of waiting for a panel to fall off or a spring to break. The national average for a garage door repair is $251 and can range up to $1,500, although it depends on the style of your home’s garage door.

Extends Lifespan 

Homeowners can expect long-term performance when their garage door is properly maintained. A properly cared for and well-maintained garage door can last upwards of 20 years. Technicians will ensure that your door’s tracks, springs, sensors, and remote systems are all in working order. So you can get the most out of the lifespan of your garage door without any unexpected repairs. 

Take Advantage of Your Warranty

Many parts of your home’s garage door are covered by lifetime warranties. When you have a technician who understands the benefits of your warranty, you can receive parts for free. Even if your technician says you need to purchase a part, inquire about the warranty. Although it may not cover the part, it may save you money. If you have a Clopay Garage Door, check out the warranty brochure to see which parts are covered.
