Our 25-point inspection service on your garage/overhead door includes the following:
1. Door balance. This ensures that the spring(s) are fully functional.
2. Rollers. We inspect every roller for signs of wear and tear, or damage.
3. Cables. Cables are inspected for fraying and kinking, which leads to damage, as well as rusting.
4. Drums. Drums are checked for unusual defects and cracking.
5. Center Bearing. Checked for wear and tear or burned out bearings. There are generally 2 types of center bearings; a single piece nylon bearing and a metal housing with actual ball bearings.
6. Center Bracket. Center brackets are inspected for signs of bending and other anomalies.
7. End Bearing Plates. The bearing plates are located at each end of the spring bar that is mounted outside the drums. The bearings allow the spring bar to turn freely as the door opens and closes. We check to make sure that there are no faults.
8. Spring Bar. We inspect for rust and bending. The spring bar holds the springs and turns as the door opens and closes.
9. Hinges. Hinges are inspected for damage and excessive wear.
10. Top Brackets. Top brackets hold the top roller in place.
11. Bottom Brackets. Bottom brackets are mounted at the bottom of the lower garage door section and hold the bottom rollers in place. These brackets contribute to the lifting point on the garage door. We inspect for wear, damage, and breakage.
12. Vertical Tracks. Bending and damage can occur. We check them to ensure that they are up to par.
13. Horizontal Track. We inspect for bending and damage.
14. Jamb Brackets. Jamb brackets attach the vertical tracks to the framework on each side of the garage door opening. Our inspection searches for position, bending, and other damage.
15. Strut. Struts are added supports for the garage door structure. Generally, garage doors have a strut mounted at the top of the high garage door section. Some garage doors are equipped with multiple struts depending on the weight of the door. Struts may be added if the damage requires additional struts for support.
16. Weather Seal. Weather seals are rubber and located at the bottom of the garage door. This seal helps prevent wind and windblown objects from entering the garage. We inspect for dry rot and any other damage.
17. Section (interior/exterior). We check for any dents, tearing in the metal, and any other damage.
18. Opener Controls. Controls are inspected for functioning efficiency.
19. Opener Trolley/Carriage. Inspected for damage and grinding in chain drive openers.
20. Safety Eyes. The safety eyes keep the door from closing if a person or object is in the garage door’s path. Safety eyes are inspected for efficiency and functionality.
21. Motor Gears. Motor gears are susceptible to wear and tear in belt and chain drives. We check the belt and/or chain for proper tension and signs of deterioration.
22. Wires. Visually inspected for any signs of wear and tear or cracking in the wire coating.
23. Limits. We test the limits to ensure that the door opens and closes to the proper travel locations.
24. Opening/Closing Force. We test the force limits to ensure that proper force is being applied to the door during opening and closing.
25. Springs. We visually inspect the springs for signs of rust and deterioration. We also measure each spring to make sure that they are adequate.
