Keep your Garage Doors working for years with an Inspection Sheet

Maybe you like to do your own garage door maintenance. For those Valuemax customers who prefer to do preventive maintenance to keep their garage door in proper working order, we have prepared a basic Garage Door Inspection Sheet to facilitate this process. Preventive garage door maintenance is going to keep your costs down and your garage door functioning properly. We recommend that everyone follow these guidelines. Take advantage of what we offer as it addresses all the parts of a garage door. This list will help to keep your garage door, opener, racks, and other components working well year after year:

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

It is best that you cycle your Castro Valley garage door opener several times to check for each item on the above list. Do not check several items at once. Look for any part of the garage door that is binding or stops during the opening or closing process. You also may want to give the rollers, hinges, roller tracks, and latches a shot of a lubricant. 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. Check to see if the garage door reverses itself to the open position when it contacts wood on the garage floor. The garage door wall-mounted push-button should be visible at eye level and in working order.

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

Again, try not to check several items at one time as you may miss a malfunction. Check each above item by running a garage door opening and closing cycle. Look for signs of wear, stress, or tears in the metal or other places. Visually inspect the springs for damage. Are they bent or are the coils separated? 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? Does the garage door have a means of manually detaching the door operation and is it functional?
