"Lowest price & Same Day Service for San Jose Garage door repair needs"


Keep your Garage Doors working for years with an Inspection Sheet

Maybe you are one of the people who like to do their own garage door maintenance. We have prepared a Garage Door Inspection Sheet for those Valuemax customers who prefer to do their own preventive maintenance and maintain their garage door in proper working order themselves. We understand this and that is why we have prepared the Inspection Sheet to facilitate this process for you. Preventive garage door maintenance is going to keep your costs down and your garage door functioning properly. If everyone followed these guidelines it would make sure your garage door continues to open and close with ease. Take advantage of what we offer you 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:

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

Our first suggestion is for you to become familiar with your owner's manual. When you make your visual inspection, don't take shortcuts by checking several items at once. It is best that you cycle your San Jose garage door opener several times to check for each item on the above list. 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 WD-40 or similar lubricant. The garage door wall-mounted push-button should be visible, at eye level, and in working order. Put a piece of wood on the garage floor and check to see if the garage door reverses itself to the open position when it contacts the wood. Also, be sure to 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.

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

Again, it is not recommended that you check several items at the same time as you may miss a malfunction. Check each item above by running a garage door through an opening and closing cycle. Also look for signs of wear, stress, or tears in the metal or other places. Be sure to check the weather stripping on the sides and bottom of the door as well. Your garage door should have a means of manually detaching the door operation. Is it working? Do the rollers stay in the track during operation? Visually inspect the springs for damage. Remember that you have a certified Valuemax Garage Door San Jose technician to respond to all your needs.
