Garage Door Inspection

Garage doors are typically the largest motorized moving instrument in one’s home. Garage door safety, quality, and reliability are always key for peak performance and protecting your family. As a courtesy to customers, Accent Garage Doors, a garage door sales, service, and installation company along the Wasatch Front, provides a 20-Point Safety Check included at no cost to customers with any scheduled service. If any of the items in the 20-Point Safety Check List fail, then the expert technician may recommend service to get additional garage door maintenance or repairs.

Garage doors have many moving parts, each one can fail if not properly maintained. We have identified 20 separate elements that are important to inspect for optimal garage door service. We encourage customers to ask any questions that they may have in conjunction with the garage door inspection.

The 20 points include the following:

Door Balance Springs Torsion Tube Center Bearing
End Bearing Cables Drums Hinges
Tracks Rollers Panels Struts
Bottom Seal Bottom/Top Brackets Swing Arm Operator
Forces Sensor Eyes Belt/Chain Tension Travel Limits

Below are descriptions of a few of the main points examined in the 20 point safety check.

Door Balance – We check that the balance of the door is not tilted toward one direction or the other. This can impair the door’s functionality.

Springs – We look at the spring to see how well it is working. Depending on the makeup of the garage door, springs are generally located in the middle of the lifting function of the door.

Cables – We will inspect cables to determine whether they are working properly, or need replacing. Safety cables keep a broken garage door spring from flying around the garage.

Rollers – We will examine these to see if they need to be adjusted or replaced.

Sensor Eyes – We will test the sensor eyes. As a safety precaution, the sensor eyes identify whether an object or person is located below the garage door. If something is below the door, it will not permit the door to close.

Belt / Chain Tension – We look at whether the belt or chain tension is working correctly.
