"Lowest price & Same Day Service for Bakersfield Garage door repair needs"


Keep your Garage Doors working for years with an Inspection Sheet

It is a good idea for you to do a quick monthly inspection of your garage door. We have developed an Inspection Sheet to facilitate this process of doing your own preventive maintenance to keep your garage door in proper working order yourself. Preventive garage door maintenance can keep your costs down and your garage door functioning properly. You need to make sure everything is properly fastened and in good working order. Take advantage of our comments as they address all the parts of a garage door. This list will help you keep your garage door, opener, racks, and other components working well year after year:

    Garage door opener:
  • Safety Sensor
  • Control Panel / Remotes / Keyless Entry
  • Boom / Trolley
  • Motor / Gear
  • Bellwire
  • Safety Reverse / Limit Switch

Don't take shortcuts by checking several items at once. It is best that you cycle your Bakersfield garage door opener several times to check for each item on the above list. Be sure to check the safety sensor to see that it interrupts appropriately when the beam is broken. You want to be sure the reversing process is in proper working order. Also, look for any part of the garage door that is binding or stops during the opening or closing process.

    Garage door:
  • Bearings
  • Brackets
  • Tracks
  • Springs
  • Rollers
  • Panel Condition
  • Hinges
  • Pulleys
  • Door Balance
  • Bottom Weather Seal
  • Cables
  • Safety Cable
  • Drums
  • Strut / Truss Rod

Don't check several items at one time as you may miss a malfunction. Check each item above by running a garage door opening and closing cycle. Also look for signs of wear, stress, frayed, or tears in the metal or other places. Follow the owner's manual and lubricate where indicated. Manually lift the garage door a few feet off the ground and release it to see if it is in balance. The door should only move a few inches in either direction. If it goes to the ground then your springs need adjusting or replaced. Be sure that all hinges and bracket screws are tight.
