Garage Door Inspection Checklist

Garage door inspections need to be done on a yearly basis to keep your family safe. If you are like many homeowners, you’ve probably never had a safety inspection done. The team here at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair is qualified to come out and inspect your garage door. When we do, there is a list of things we check. 

Here are some of the top things we inspect during our safety checks: 

1. The Emergency Release Handle

Many garage doors come with an emergency release so that you can open the door if the power goes out. The handle hangs from the middle of the tracks and releases the door from the trolley. Our techs will make sure your handle is no higher than 6 feet from the floor. 

2. Panels and Hardware

We inspect the door panels and hardware that holds the door together. If there are loose bolts and screws, we will tighten it up. Also, our techs will look at the panels for weak spots, cracks, and damage. If your panels are damaged, our team can replace them. 

3. Warning Labels

Every garage door comes with warning labels. The problem is that over time, these labels wear out or fall off. If your labels are missing, we will replace them for you. 

These are the labels you need on your door: 

  • Spring warnings
  • General warnings
  • Wall mount warning
  • Bracket warnings

We will look at the places these labels are supposed to be and attach any that are missing. 

4. Springs

Springs are a dangerous part on your garage door. These parts wind up and hold tension. If the tension is broken, it can cause your door to fall on you or anyone underneath. We recommend that you do not replace your own springs for this reason. 

5. General Door Operation

We will open and close your door using the opener and manually. Our technicians will determine if the door is working in a way that is safe for your family. If they notice imbalances or faulty parts, they will recommend the replacements. 

6. Hardware

Our technicians will visually inspect all of the working parts of your assembly. If they see anything that looks worn out or damaged, they will let you know. We recommend that you replace parts that are worn, rather than wait until they break. You will save yourself high repair bills, but also, keep your family safe. 

7. Push Button on The Wall

If you have an automatic door with the wall mount, we will inspect it. Our techs will measure the distance of the button from the floor. It must be at least 5 feet off the ground to stay out of reach of small children. If it is not, we will discuss how we can move it up to a safer height.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
