How often should I have my door serviced?

The first service is due within twelve months of installation, and further service intervals should not exceed eighteen months. This will not only promote longer product life, it will ensure that the manufacturers warranty conditions are adhered to and complied with. Please contact the office with queries relating to service bookings and information pertaining to associated call out rates and charges.

*Please note: If correct maintenance and servicing are not carried out, warranty may be void.

Is there any maintenance that I need to regularly carry out on my garage door?

You should check the safe operation of your door and remote control system as often as possible, however it is recommended that intervals should not exceed three (3) months. The consumer should be checking items such as, but not limited to: the spring tension, all fixings, guides, general condition of components, and impact reversing system on remote control system. Basic maintenance and lubrication are also recommended, as listed below:
  1. Guides / Tracks:
    Roller Doors: Clean the internal sections of the guide/tracks with silicone spray. Polish vigorously with a dry cloth to achieve a smooth, dirt and moisture resistant surface.
    Sectional Doors: Wipe internal sections of the guide/tracks with a dry cloth to achieve a dirt and moisture free surface.

    *Do not use grease or oil in the guide tracks.
  2. Steel Hinges and Springs (if accessible): Where accessible you should spray or oil with a spray lubricant. This will lubricate and protect from corrosion and offer smooth and quiet operation of your door.
  3. Plastic Hinges: No lubrication is generally required, however silicon spray may be used if necessary.
  4. Chain: Lubricate with Chain Lube.
  5. Lifting Cables if fitted: Check for any wear. If there is fraying or signs of corrosion contact us to organise the replacement of your cables.

    *Cables on your garage door are under extreme tension and should only be adjusted by an appropriately qualified garage door service technician.
  6. Fasteners: Check all fixings such as screws, nuts and bolts to ensure they are secure and correctly tightened/torqued.
  7. Spring Tension: It is natural for springs to lose tension. Should the door become heavy, difficult to operate or completely inoperative, then please contact our office to arrange for a service call.

    *Springs on your garage door are under tension at all times and should only be adjusted by an appropriately qualified garage door service technician.

Additional safety information:

Can you put a motor on my existing garage door?

In most cases we can! Your door needs to be in good operating condition and have sufficient side or back room for fixing.

What sort of garage doors are available?

There are several types of garage doors for you to choose from. The descriptions are below:

Roller door is a ribbed steel curtain that moves vertically in the opening and rolls up around a drum, guided by tracks on the side of the door and is spring counter balanced. Ideally suited where there is plenty of headroom and where a traditional look is required.
