Common Causes of Garage Door Failure

In most cases, the garage door is the most important entryway to the home. Making sure that it is maintained and functioning optimally is sometimes an underappreciated part of any homeowner's responsibilities.

Of course, it never hurts to have expert assistance. The Overhead Door Company of Lexington is your local industry leader, and we have experienced technicians available to help you maintain and protect your garage door.

Over the years, garage door components can wear out, causing operation malfunction. Torsion springs typically last between 10,000 and 100,000 cycles, so you'll most likely need to replace one each decade or so.

Of course, proper maintenance figures into garage door longevity, as well. Keeping parts lubricated, cleaned, balanced, and painted (where needed) helps ensure a longer life for the door. Our service team can help you with this maintenance.

Obviously, when vehicles hit garage doors, that can cause big problems, too. The same is true of thrown objects and other accidental damage. If you suspect your door has been compromised, you need a trained eye to assess the damage and make suggestions about how to fix it.

In each case, you're in good hands with The Overhead Door Company of Lexington. We have a 24/7 emergency hotline, and we're always available to assist you with your garage door needs.

Keeping you safe is our #1 concern. Contact us anytime to get help with your garage door questions and needs.
