25-Point Garage Door Maintenance Inspection.

Whether you’re having us perform a one-time garage tuneup or join our ongoing garage maintenance plan, Gateway Door & Contracting will extensively inspect your garage door and opener.

  • Rollers for signs of wear and tear or even damage.
  • Hinges for damage and excessive wear and tear.
  • Spring Bar that holds the springs and turns the door as it opens for any signs of rust, bending, or other defects.
  • Center Bracket for signs of bending and other common anomalies.
  • Cables for fraying and kinking – both lead to damage.
  • Drums for any unusual defects or even cracking.
  • Balance. We’ll ensure the garage door is balanced and the spring(s) are fully functional.
  • Center Bearing for wear and tear or even burned-out bearings, whether a single-piece nylon bushing or a metal housing with actual ball bearings.
  • End Bearing Plates are used to ensure no faults and allow the spring bar to turn freely as the door opens and closes.
  • Struts to ensure the sanctity of the overall garage door structure. Some garage doors are equipped with multiple struts depending on the door weight.
  • Section (interior/exterior) for any dents or tearing in the metal, along with any other common types of damage.
  • Vertical Tracks are for bending and damage to occur, so we’ll check them to ensure they are okay.
  • Horizontal Track holds the door while it is in the up position for bending and damage.
  • Top Brackets that hold the top roller in place for wear and tear or bending and twisting.
  • Bottom Brackets for wear, damage, and breakage (Mounted at the bottom of the lower garage door and hold the bottom rollers in place. These bottom brackets contribute to the lifting point on the garage doors)
  • Jamb Brackets for its position, for any bending or other damage. Jamb brackets attach the vertical tracks to the framework on each side of the garage door opening.
  • Safety Eyes for alignment (They keep the door from closing if a person or object is in the garage door’s path).
  • Springs for signs of rust and deterioration.
  • We will check the Motor Gears for any wear and grease them if necessary. We will also check the belt and/or chain for proper tension and any signs of deterioration.
  • Opener Controls for functioning efficiency.
  • Opener Trolley/Carriage for any damage to the trolley or grinding in the screw drive openers if you have one.
  • Wires for wear and tear or cracks in the wire coating.
  • Test the Limits to ensure your garage door opens and closes to the proper locations.
  • Opening and closing Force Limits ensure the proper force is applied to the garage door when it opens and closes.
  • Weather Seal is inspected for dry rot and any other damages (rubber located at the bottom of the garage door)

Our inspections are thorough because we prioritize having your door run smoothly and safely for you and your family, 24x7x365.  Dave Hill
