What you should know about our annual Preventive Maintenance Program (PMP)

When you have a new residential garage door installed, you want the system to operate efficiently and safely for as long as possible. There is no secret to achieving this. Your garage door system must be manufactured with the best materials, installed by qualified technicians, and inspected regularly.

It is important to maintain your garage door regularly, just as you do your car. Do not forget that the garage door is the largest moving component in your home and it is or will become a frequently used entrance. It is therefore vital to follow the maintenance instructions for your new GARAGA garage door to avoid the need of a garage door repair.

To that end, at Hicklin Door Services we provide an annual Preventive Maintenance Program for your garage door and the added peace of mind that comes along with it.

This residential garage door maintenance program includes the ten-point inspection enumerated below:

  • Inspect, lube and adjust rollers and hinges;
  • Inspect, lube and adjust torsion springs and all plates;
  • Inspect, adjust and balance extension springs (Note: Installation of security cables with extension springs is highly recommended by Garaga);
  • Inspect and tighten nuts and bolts;
  • Inspect and adjust lifting cables;
  • Inspect and adjust tracks (alignment and wall attachment);
  • Inspect and lube exterior frame and door bottom weather stripping;
  • Inspect and adjust door opener’s electrical components including trolley;
  • Test and adjust all safety systems (mechanical or photoelectrical);
  • Inspect and tune remote controls & door opener accessories.

It is best to have this garage door maintenance done before winter or every 12 to 18 months. It’s similar to having your car tuned up before the winter.

Garage door repair is dangerous! This is why we recommended that you not attempt to fix it yourself. The experts at Hicklin Door Services will come out to your home to do a complete inspection of your garage door system, them they will complete the garage door repair or garage door maintenance needed with a peerless professionalism. We are known for our expertise and knowledge in this field.

Please give us a call at 515-276-3700, and we will work with you to set up the perfect Preventive Maintenance Program for your garage door if you need a garage door maintenance service or plan a repair appointment to your convenience if you need a garage door repair service.
