Just about everybody understands the need to maintain any mechanical device that has moving parts. Interestingly enough most people don’t apply this thought to their garage door. In fact the only time many people think about their garage door is after they hit the button on their opener and watch the door come up and down. But just like your car, your garage door needs periodic preventative maintenance to keep it in good working order. You may be tempted to give in to the line of thinking that you’ll fix it when it breaks, but there are very good reasons why you should avoid that thinking.
Not All Surprises Are Good
As you open and close your garage door, automatic or manual, various springs and tension bars are used to raise and lower it. These metal pieces all share one common enemy: metal fatigue. All metal has a fatigue point. The nasty surprise about metal fatigue is that it happens silently. When a spring or tension bar in your garage door reaches that point and fails, you won’t have any warning. If the garage door is up when this happens it will come crashing down causing a loud and very dangerous situation. If the garage door is down when this occurs how will you get it open? If your garage door has a way to manually open it do you know where it is and how to operate it? What happens if your car is stuck inside the garage when this happens how will you get it out?
