How Often Should I Have My Garage Door Serviced?

Many people assume that, as soon as their garage door is installed, they don’t have to worry about the door anymore. This is not true at all. Automatic garage doors require servicing just like any other invention with a motor. In this blog, we will be going through how often you should get your garage door serviced as well as giving reasons why.


Commercial Garage Doors


Business owners will know about modern health and safety laws. These laws make tasks like getting your garage doors serviced imperative. If your garage door is used daily, then it is important that it is properly maintained. You should get your garage doors serviced roughly once every 12 months. Due to the heavy use of commercial doors, they require more frequent servicing than normal garage doors. If they are not properly maintained, the springs and motors in the doors can become dangerous.

We have a highly experienced team who are capable of both installing and servicing garage doors. As with any motorised invention, it is important they’re properly maintained. If you do not get your doors serviced and an injury occurs then you could be liable for prosecution.


Domestic Garage Doors


Homeowners with automatic garage doors do not need to get their doors serviced as frequently as their commercial counterparts. Homeowners don’t use their door as often as businesses do. However, homeowners with automated garage doors should still have their garage door serviced at least once every 18 months.  

Our in-house team of garage door experts are on hand to provide this maintenance service for all models and styles of automated garage doors. 


Why is it important to get my garage door serviced?


Getting your garage door serviced annually can prevent serious injuries and even death. There are around 20,000 accidents caused yearly by garage doors, so ensuring that they’re properly maintained lowers the risk of you becoming one of these statistics. Getting your garage door serviced also reduces the risks of damage to the door saving you money in the long run.
