How often should I service my garage door motor?
Regular servicing of your garage door motor is essential to ensure its continued functionality and longevity. It’s generally recommended to schedule a professional service at least once a year.
However, if your garage door experiences heavy daily use or if you notice any unusual sounds, delays, or other issues, more frequent servicing may be necessary.
During a service appointment, a technician will:
- Inspect and lubricate moving parts,
- Tighten loose hardware,
- Check the balance and alignment of the door, and
- Test safety features.
Regular maintenance not only prevents potential malfunctions but also identifies and addresses minor issues before they escalate into costly repairs. The average garage door will last 15 – 30 years. But regular servicing and maintenance is required to achieve this.
