Don't wait to get your garage door inspected. Here's why.

Overhead Door Company of Sioux City is helping homeowners keep their garages and families safe this fall and winter by offering a discounted garage door repair or garage door upgrade when clients schedule a Basic Garage Door Inspection and Service Package. Of course, there are several reasons why you shouldn't wait to get your garage door inspected, and the discount on the repair is just one of them.

Overhead Door of Sioux City and Overhead Door of Yankton perform a 27-Point Service Checklist, which includes a thorough inspection of the garage door and its supporting and moving elements. The thorough inspection includes the Rail, Track, Shaft, Chain, Limits, Drums, Hinges, Cables, Spring, Rollers, Keypad, Bearings, Sprockets, Sensitivity, Photo Cells, Head Plates, Top Fixtures, Bottom Seal, Transmitters, Nuts & Bolts, Level of Door, Perimeter Seal, Operator, Balance of Door, Bottom Fixtures, Mounting Brackets, and Center Bearing Bracket.

After inspection each item, the technician goes to work on the maintenance and service side of things. Springs, rollers, and hinges are properly lubricated, cables are adjusted to make sure the door is level with the ground, and the door is balanced to ensure smooth operation. In most cases, this may be all that needs to be done to ensure your door operates beautifully in the months to come.

In some cases, however, additional work may be required. This time of year, we always recommend a good hard look at weather seals and bottom seals, which can allow snow and cold air into the garage (and sometimes the home) if they are old, worn, or cracked. 

Now until the end of 2015, receive a free replacement or upgrade of one of the following as part of your  Service and Inspection Package:

  • Wireless or wired keypad
  • Weatherseal for one double or two single doors
  • Bottom seal for one double or two single doors

Your garage door is arguably the hardest working piece of machinery in your home, and it's definitely the largest and the heaviest. Keeping it in good working order is an important part of being a homeowner, although many Sioux City and Yankton homeowners lack the knowledge or the tools to perform inspections and maintenance. This is where Overhead Door comes in.

There is no time like the present to make sure your garage door continues to work safely and smoothly. Don't let a broken garage door surprise you this fall and winter--reserve your appointment now to not only save money on the inspection and service, but also on the time and expense of a much larger repair down the road.
