Keep your Garage Doors working for years with an Inspection Sheet

Here is our basic Garage Door Inspection Sheet to help you do your own preventive maintenance. We recommend that you make an effort to keep your garage door in proper working order. Preventive garage door maintenance can keep your costs down and your garage door functioning properly. Everyone should be able to follow these guidelines to ensure that your garage door continues to operate efficiently. Your intent is to make sure everything is properly fastened and in good working order. Review our comments as they address all the parts of a garage door. This list will help you keep your garage door, opener, racks, and other components working well year after year:

    Garage door opener:
  • Boom / Trolley
  • Control Panel / Remotes / Keyless Entry
  • Safety Reverse / Limit Switch
  • Safety Sensor
  • Motor / Gear
  • Bellwire

Don't attempt to check several items at once. It is best that you cycle your Oakland garage door opener each time to check each item on the above list. Look for any part of the garage door that is binding or stops during the opening or closing process. Also, be sure to check the safety sensor to see that it interrupts appropriately when the beam is broken. You want to be sure the reversing process is in proper working order.

    Garage door:
  • Springs
  • Cables
  • Hinges
  • Strut / Truss Rod
  • Tracks
  • Rollers
  • Bearings
  • Brackets
  • Panel Condition
  • Pulleys
  • Door Balance
  • Bottom Weather Seal
  • Safety Cable
  • Drums

Follow the owner's manual and lubricate where indicated. Check items one at a time as you may miss a malfunction. Run a garage door opening and closing cycle for each item. Look for signs of wear, stress, frayed, or tears in the metal or other places. Manually lift the garage door a few feet off the ground and release it to see if it is in balance. The door should only move a few inches in either direction. If it goes to the ground then your springs need adjusting or replaced. Be sure that all hinges and bracket screws are tight.
