Proper garage door troubleshooting requires more than periodic visual inspections. Parts and internal components that are not readily visible to untrained eyes can breakdown and fail. Many instances of garage door failure occur from a lack of routine maintenance, normal wear, and tear and minor collisions. In order to prevent malfunctions and breakdowns, schedule routine service at least once a year to have the springs, pulleys, rollers, and other internal mechanisms inspected and lubricated. Garage doors should also be balanced to prevent misalignment issues that could interfere with proper function, such as drifting during manual operations. In addition to scheduling regular garage door service visits, homeowners should clean and paint their garage doors as necessary to protect their investment.
