Price varies by the presence of an opener. Full maintenance should be done annually. It includes 25 different steps to ensure optimal performance:
- We check the doors’ BALANCE to ensure that the spring(s) (regardless of type) are balancing and lift the door properly
- We inspect all ROLLERS for normal signs of basic wear and tear, or for even more substantial damage, such as dents, or bent stems
- We check over all CABLES for potentially problem causing fraying, kinking, rust, and cuts,
- Both DRUMS are inspected thoroughly looking for cracks, worn grooves, and worn threads on set screws.
- The SPRING(S) are inspected for proper size per the weight (IPPT) of the door, then we check for rust, corrosion, and proper tension.
- Although not usually big problem makers we do inspect the END BEARING PLATES and CENTER
- BEARING PLATE to ensure the “free-turning” motion of the torsion tube (for torsion spring and torque-master set ups).
- The TORSION TUBE is inspected for possible bending and/or bowing as this will surely end in a very damaging situation if the springs are not installed on a flat, stable support.
- We inspect all HINGES for rust, cracking, and flexibility.
- Both BOTTOM BRACKETS are checked for security, rust, cleanliness, wear and tear, and hook integrity as these are one of the key points of safely lifting the door.
- The TRACK system in its entirety will be inspected for dents, bends, rust, debris, etc.
- The FLAG AND JAMB BRACKETS that attach the vertical tracks to the frame on each side of the garage door opening are checked for proper position, bending and other damage.
- STRUTS are checked for bending, denting, and proper fastening. If the number of struts are not correct for the size and weight of the door the appropriate recommendations will be made.
- The ASTRAGAL/ BOTTOM SEAL is inspected as these are made of a flexible vinyl to prevent rodents, rain, snow, and wind from entering your garage. Because of the material that they are made of over time they will start to crack and become stiff; in order to be effective, they need to be as flexible as possible.
- All PANELS/ SECTIONS are inspected for denting, bowing, buckling, peeling, cracking, sagging, and rusting. The onsite technician will advise you of your next step as panels cannot be repaired once the safety integrity has been compromised but they can be replaced individually.
- We make sure all REMOTES and KEYPADS are working properly.
- Sometimes referred to as a “trolley” the CARRIAGE ASSEMBLY is checked to ensure smooth operation, sharp “teeth”, and emergency release pin functionality.
- We check the SENSORS for alignment, wire tightness, cleanliness, and function.
- The opener GEAR is checked for efficiency (both sprocket or worm gear types)
- All WIRING is inspected to make sure that there are no exposed, broken or cracked wires.
- We set the opener FORCE AND LIMITS to make sure the door goes up and down as far as it needs to and at the proper pressure.
Trim — (including material and labor)
Price varies by size – VINYL STRIP INSTALLED ON THE EXTERIOR THRESHOLD OF THE DOOR TO PREVENT ANY WIND FROM ENTERING THE GARAGE AS WELL AS CLOSE UP ANY GAPS OR SPACES PRESENT. TRIM WILL MATCH THE COLOR OF THE DOOR.
Bottom weather seal – (including material and labor)
Prices vary by size and type. Flexible premium PVC, tested to remain flexible to minus 40 degrees, 3″, 4″ & 6″ Wide, round bead ends measure 3/16″ – Black, some styles also available in Gray. Choose your width and length. Designed to slide into a round channel on the bottom of the door. We also stock a smaller bead style seal common for select types of garage doors. The beads are perfectly round. Do not confuse with the similar Wayne Dalton style that is not completely round. This garage door bottom weather stripping is an exact match to Taylor brand and other garage doors. All lengths are 2″ minimum longer than length of door so they can be cut for a perfect fit. If you have a situation that requires a wider seal, or if there is a gap issue that will not be corrected with this standard weather seal, consider replacing the bottom retainer to a more standard 1/4″ T style that will allow you to use a wide variety of types and styles of weather seal. We stock many different bottom retainers and a wide variety of weather seal in the common 1/4″ style.
Threshold — (including material and labor)
Price varies by size; garage door threshold creates a seal that blocks out the elements by closing the gap between the door and the floor. The tight seal in conjunction with the bottom weather seal keeps the inside of your garage sealed against the outside weather, permanently affixed to the garage floor by adhesive.\
