Garage Door 18 Inspection Points
A full 18-point garage door inspection is a detailed inquiry or exam of your garage door, garage door opener, and any elements associated with your garage door, like remotes, cords, bolts, and tracks. Most garage door 18-point inspections should focus on a complete list that can be checked off and shared with you. It’s all on the health and potential warning signs of your garage door. The points range from checking your garage door stability to the functionality of emergency cords, extension-spring wear, and tear.
1. Door balance. This ensures the spring(s) are fully functionally.
2. Rollers. Quality Garage Door inspects every roller for signs of wear and tear or damage.
3. Cables. Cables are inspected for fraying and kinking, which leads to damage.
4. Drums. Drum are looked over for unusual defects and cracking.
5. Center Bracket. Center brackets are inspected for signs of bending and other anomalies.
6. End Bearing Plates. The bearing plates are located at each end of the spring bar-mounted outside the drums. The bearings allow the spring bar to turn freely as the door opens and closes. We check to make sure there are no faults.
7. Hinges. Hinges are inspected for damage and excessive wear.
8. Bottom Brackets. Bottom brackets are mounted at the bottom of the lower garage door
Section, they hold the bottom rollers in place. These brackets contribute to the lifting point on the garage door. We inspected for wear, damage, and breakage.
9. Vertical Tracks. Bending and damage can occur; we check them to ensure they are up to par.
10. Horizontal Track. We also inspect for bending and damage.
11. Jamb Brackets. Jamb brackets attach the vertical tracks to the framework on each side of the garage door opening; our Inspection searches for the position, bending, and other damage.
12. Strut. Struts are added supports for the garage door structure. Generally, garage doors have support mounted at the top of the high garage door section. Some garage doors are equipped with multiple struts depending on the weight of the door. Struts may be added if the damage requires additional struts for support.
13. Weather Seal. Weather seals are rubber located at the bottom of the garage door. This seal helps prevent wind and windblown objects from entering the garage. We inspected for dry rot and any other damages.
14. Opener Controls. Controls are inspected for functioning efficiency.
15. Opener Trolley/Carriage. They are inspected for damage and grinding in screw drive openers.
16. Safety Eyes. The safety eyes keep the door from closing if a person or object is in the garage door's path. Safety eyes are inspected for efficiency.
17. Wires. Visually inspected for any signs of wear and tear or cracking in the wire coating.
18. Limits. We test the limits to ensure the door opens and closes to the proper travel locations.
