Commercial Garage Door Service: A Guide for Property Owners

Commercial garage doors get used a lot. They’re opened and closed regularly in the normal course of business – and they need to function well every time they’re used! This means they need regular service in order to maintain their usefulness. If your garage doors are visible to the public, they should also be maintained for their aesthetic beauty.

As a business owner, it’s important to know how to maintain your commercial garage door and how to recognize the signs that your door needs repair. This short guide can help.

When to Get a Tune-Up

Tune-ups should happen annually – and perhaps twice annually if your garage doors are opened and closed multiple times throughout the day. A broken garage door can mean lost business, but regular tune-ups can prevent that from happening.

Signs Your Garage Door Needs Repair

Commercial garage door problems can be frustrating – but it doesn’t have to be that way. If you recognize the signs of a problem early, you can get repair before your doors are fully broken.

  • Strange noises. Loud clanking, grinding, and squeaking noises can be an indication of something going wrong with the machinery in your door. Noises can also be a sign that your door’s parts need to be lubricated. Your repair professional can help you identify the problem.
  • The door won’t open or close. This could be a sign of something going wrong with the torsion spring or the photoelectric eye.
  • The panel is damaged. Damage to the panel can be cosmetic, or it may go deeper. Depending on what’s wrong, damage to the panel can lead your garage door to become misaligned, and that could prevent you from using your door.

Common Things That Go Wrong

In an ideal world, your commercial garage door would never experience technical problems. Unfortunately, it’s not a perfect world! Below are some things that can cause problems over time:

  • Lack of regular service.
  • Parts wear out and are not replaced in time.
  • Standard wear and tear.

All of these problems can be prevented just by getting your commercial garage door serviced by a pro on a regular basis. Many reputable garage door companies have a regular service plan for their commercial customers. Explore your options and sign up for a service plan that will work for your door.

Friendly customer service. Bought a hard to find remote for an old garage door opener. Opener has 3 buttons so I can program both doors to it. Easy to find location right off 29th St.

I was given a very fair quote. A week later a tech came and installed. Then came back to install lock. Tech was very professional and polite. Spen time with me making adjustments to my liking. I totally recommend Overhead door to my fellow Okies.

Overhead Door did a great job. They got me on the schedule the next day and fixed my spring in 30 minutes or less. Joe was great, professional, and courteous. Awesome service, and he didn't tell me I needed extra materials like the previous garage door people that quoted me $575. Overhead Door told me a price over the phone and it didn't change. I'd recommend them every time.

Pleased with their services. Coil spring broke and door stopped working. Spoke to Ron, and less than 24 hrs later the technician had us up n running again. These guys did exactly what they promised to do, with no nonsense. I like that.
