"Lowest price & Same Day Service for Merced Garage door repair needs"


Keep your Garage Doors working for years with an Inspection Sheet

We have prepared a Garage Door Inspection Sheet for our Valuemax customers because many of them like to do their own garage door maintenance. Preventive garage door maintenance is going to keep your costs down and your garage door functioning properly. If everyone followed our basic guidelines it would help your garage door to continue to open and close with ease. It addresses all the parts of a garage door. A review of the owner's manual is also recommended. This list will help to keep your garage door, opener, racks, and other components working year after year.

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

It is best that you cycle your Merced garage door opener several times to check for each item on the above list. Don't take shortcuts by checking several items at once when you make your visual inspection. Look for any part of the garage door that is binding or stops during the opening or closing process. You also may want to lubricate the rollers, hinges, roller tracks, and latches. Put a piece of wood on the garage floor and check to see if the garage door reverses itself to the open position when it contacts the wood. The garage door wall-mounted push-button should be visible, at eye level, and in working order. Also, be sure to check the safety sensor to see that it interrupts appropriately when the beam is broken and returns the door to its open position. This is for garage door systems with photoelectric eyes:

    Garage door:
  • Springs
  • Hinges
  • Pulleys
  • Cables
  • Bearings
  • Brackets
  • Tracks
  • Rollers
  • Panel Condition
  • Door Balance
  • Bottom Weather Seal
  • Safety Cable
  • Drums
  • Manual operation

Remember that you may miss a malfunction if you check several items at the same time. Check each item above by running a garage door through an opening and closing cycle. Also look for signs of wear, stress, or tears in the metal or other places. Your garage door should have a means of manually detaching the door operation. Is it working? Be sure to check the weather stripping on the sides and bottom of the door as well. Do the rollers stay in the track during operation? Visually inspect the springs for damage.
