Why Do I Need to Maintain My Garage Doors?
Your garage doors are some of the most reliable mechanical systems in your home. When they work well day in and day out, you may forget that they need regular maintenance just like a car or an HVAC system. However, here are a few of the reasons why routine maintenance is critical.
- Your general garage door sees more action than most other systems in your house. The average set of garage doors goes up and down at least 1500 times per year. However, most households never do any maintenance on their garage doors unless they stop working.
- Malfunctioning garage doors can be dangerous. An annual checkup can help identify parts that are becoming worn down or are on the verge of breaking down. Addressing small problems as they come up enables you to avoid catastrophic breakdowns later, preventing injuries and giving you reliable access to your garage. In addition to improving safety, routine maintenance is usually much less expensive than emergency repairs.
- Learning how to maintain a garage door helps you extend the life of your garage doors, giving you between 15 and 20 years of reliable service from one set.
