Head of the Harbor Garage Door Repairs

On average, residents of Head of the Harbor in Smithtown open and close their garage doors over 1500 times per year. That's a lot of use and a lot of wear and tear. It's normal, over time for your garage door to malfunction and need a part replaced, or serviced. As busy New Yorkers, most of us don't give our garage doors a second thought until something goes wrong. We also tend to ignore small and superficial issues when they do arise.

The truth is, failure to address any problem with your garage door, no matter the size can lead to severe damage, costly repairs, and even complete replacement of your entire garage door and system. It's important to fix malfunctions and damage as soon as possible to preserve the proper function and longevity of your door. The routine maintenance and annual tune-up are also key factors in keeping your garage door running smoother, longer.

What is a Garage Door Tune-Up?

When the professionals come to your Head of the Harbor home to give your garage door its annual inspection and tune-up, you can expect the following:

  1. The disconnecting of your garage door's system. This will help prevent any accidents and injuries from occurring.
  2. A technician will do a complete inspection of your door and its parts.
  3. The moving components of your garage door like the roller brackets, cables, pulleys, springs, etc., will be lubricated with a garage door grease, white lithium spray, or WD-40. This will prevent jamming, screeching noises, and keep your door's function, smoother.
  4. Nuts, bolts, screws, etc., can become loose over time. A socket wrench and screw driver will be used to tighten these pieces.
  5. Dirt, and other obstructions will be removed from the door's tracks.
  6. Weather seals and stripping will be inspected and potentially replaced if cracked, or damaged. These are important for keeping the elements, dirt, and pests outside where they belong.
  7. Your garage door will be wiped down with an all purpose cleaner to detect any damage and keep it looking fresh.
  8. Your garage door will be turned back on. Balance and performance will be tested to make sure your door's springs, cables, and auto-reverse sensors are working properly.

    I wish all contractors ran their businesses like Above & Beyond do. They called and showed up when they said they would. They had a problem with their truck one morning and called to inform me. And their price was reasonable. This is the way to run a business. Highly recommended!
