Our Garage Door Opener Inspection Process
With your garage door fully shut, we'll start by checking the manual release handle, which is often used to detach the main gate from its opener. This knob usually be accessible from all angles and measure at least 6ft up from the garage floor.Moreover, from inside the garage, we check if there are any loose pieces, cracks, damage or separations, and take the necessary action thereafter.Our technicians also check to ensure that all the warning labels are present on the components of garage door openers. These include:
- A spring caution tag attached to the primary assembly.
- General warning label found at the back of your door panel.
- A notice attached to the surface wall next to the control button.
- A pair of warning labels found on the door next to the base corner brackets.
Take Care of Springs to Ensure Smooth Operation of Garage Door Opener
If you have noticed cracks in your garage door spring, then immediately call us, because it may hamper operation of your garage door opener. If your garage door has stopped taking instructions from the opener, don’t worry, our garage door expert team is trained to manually open your garage door, and prevent possible accidents. In this situation, we strongly advise garage owners not to use their garage doors until all damaged springs are replaced, by our qualified technicians. All the door hinges, fasteners, and brackets will also be checked, and replaced if required. In addition, header brackets must be firmly attached to the wall/header using concrete anchors or lag bolts.
The garage opener's counterbalance system typically consists of torsion coils, that are mounted just above the main door header, or extension spring. In case the spring accidentally breaks, spring containment helps prevent broken debris from dangerously flying around the garage. Torsion coils found on the shaft help in providing natural containment, however, if they are damaged we will have to replace them with new ones.
