How to properly inspect your garage door

Here is a list of safety inspections that should be performed on a garage door:

  1. Inspect the door for any visible damage, such as dents, cracks, or bent panels.

  2. Check the door's balance. The door should remain stationary when it is fully open, and should not bounce when it is lowered.

  3. Check the door's spring tension. The door should open and close smoothly, without any jerking or binding.

  4. Check the door's cables, pulleys, and rollers for signs of wear or damage.

  5. Test the door's reversing mechanism. The door should reverse automatically if it encounters an obstacle while closing.

  6. Test the door's emergency release mechanism to ensure it is functioning properly.

  7. Check the door's weatherstripping to make sure it is sealing properly.

  8. Check the door's hinges for looseness or wear.

  9. Check the door's tracks for alignment and cleanliness.

  10. Test the door's opener to make sure it is functioning properly and safely.

It is important to perform these safety inspections regularly to ensure that your garage door is functioning safely and correctly. If you notice any issues during your inspection, it is important to have them repaired as soon as possible to prevent potential accidents or damage to your door.
