Why You Should Get Professional Garage Door Maintenance
The garage door is the largest moving object in most households. You probably use your garage door daily. As you can imagine, the wear and tear on such a large, heavy object is an unavoidable process. The average garage door has a lifespan of about 10,000 cycles, but it varies depending on usage and weather elements. Do you remember the last time your garage door was serviced? Has it ever been serviced?
Don’t wait until your garage door needs to be replaced to take care of it. You can extend the life of your current door by following a garage door maintenance program. Although you could do this yourself, it can be a time-consuming process. Additionally, you may not have the garage door system knowledge required to expertly service your own door.
Instead, maintain your garage door’s lifespan with Green T’s garage door maintenance program. Our experts are certified with knowledge of all makes and models of garage doors and garage door openers. These technicians will service your garage quickly, efficiently, and effectively.

Our 7 Step Garage Door Maintenance Program
The combination of these steps should keep your garage door in great condition and allow our experts to diagnose any potential or current problems.
Assess the Situation
This is the most important preventative step. To prevent any potential future damage, our experts evaluate the problem areas, assess current damage, and create a plan of action to keep your garage door in proper working order.
Test Garage Door Balance
Improper balance will cause your garage door system to work harder and become weak. Our experts adjust the counterweight system to ensure proper balance.
Garage door rollers need to be inspected twice a year and replaced every 7-10 years. We take note of worn or warped rollers, as a broken roller can result in a garage door that won’t open properly.
Lubricate Moving Parts
The moving parts in your garage door system need to stay slick to work properly for years and years. We coat the overhead springs, opener chain, and other essential moving parts as needed.
Cables are a major essential part of your garage door function. We look for fraying and any other type of damage, plus ensure the cables are properly threaded around the cable drums.
Test Auto-Safety Functions
We test both the mechanical and photocell mechanisms to ensure that the automatic safety features are in great working order. These features will prevent the garage door from shutting on a person or any object in the door path.
Inspect the Tracks
Clear garage door tracks allow for smooth, seamless opening and closing. We inspect the tracks to make sure they are free from debris and properly aligned.
