The Importance Of Regular Garage Door Maintenance

Like other pieces of complex machinery, your garage door needs occasional maintenance to ensure it continues to operate as it should. Your garage door and its opener are comprised of over 300 moving parts that need to work in synchronization to raise and lower the door properly. With a tune up from Sears, our garage door specialist will inspect your garage door mechanisms to ensure that everything is working as it should. That way, you’ll be more likely to avoid a garage door emergency when you least expect it.

Garage Door 20-point Maintenance and Safety Check

Garage Door Safety

When our technicians inspect your garage door, either for routine maintenance or for a specific repair issue, they’ll perform a 20-point safety check as part of their service call. A Sears associate will carefully inspect your garage’s door panels, springs, sensors, safety release, hardware, track, and other necessary parts. Our technicians perform this inspection to ensure they’ve done their repair work correctly, and to identify any potentially troublesome garage mechanisms that could become serious problems. If our technician finds a problem, he’ll advise you on the options to correct it.

Because garage door systems are complex and intricate, they can be dangerous to people who lack experience repairing them. For this reason, we stress that homeowners refrain from attempting to service their garage doors themselves.

The technicians who serviced my garage door were very friendly and professional. They took the time to explain the components and maintenance required on our garage door and future practices that I can perform to increase the longevity of our door. They recommended additional services that were not required as a suggestion and not forced.

Mr. Marcos was very courteous from the time I answered the door until he departed. He answered all my questions and took time to explain every detail of my repair including options and maintenance recommendations. He worked fast and had my repair completed in less than an hour. Once again Sears came through for me and I remain a satisfied customer. I do intend to purchase a new garage door from Sears and I'll make a point of requesting Mr. Marcos for the install. Thanks so much for continued dependability!

The cost for a repair was excessive. I had gears replaced, tune up, and charge for the visit totaling to $255. I thought about getting a new opener at this cost, but the technichian only had a $400 opener on his truck. I know I have seen them on sears website for $250 to $300. Should give customers more options at time of services.

Mr. Bravo was extremely efficient; but to my surprise he took the time to explain the steps he was taking and the maintenance necessary to keep the new opener operating at its optimum performance capabilities. I would not hesitate to recommend him by name, to friends and/or neighbors, for any maintenance calls/services they may need.

The technician was, by far, the best at his job I have met in some time. His service was exceptional. I have already gone on my Facebook account and recommended the Garage Door Maintenance to my FB friends. My garage door operates quieter and more efficiently than when it was new 8 yrs ago. Couldn't be happier.
