The Importance Of Regular Garage Door Maintenance

Like other pieces of complex machinery, your garage door needs occasional maintenance to ensure it continues to operate as it should. Your garage door and its opener are comprised of over 300 moving parts that need to work in synchronization to raise and lower the door properly. With a tune up from Sears, our garage door specialist will inspect your garage door mechanisms to ensure that everything is working as it should. That way, you’ll be more likely to avoid a garage door emergency when you least expect it.

Garage Door 20-point Maintenance and Safety Check


When our technicians inspect your garage door, either for routine maintenance or for a specific repair issue, they’ll perform a 20-point safety check as part of their service call. A Sears associate will carefully inspect your garage’s door panels, springs, sensors, safety release, hardware, track, and other necessary parts. Our technicians perform this inspection to ensure they’ve done their repair work correctly, and to identify any potentially troublesome garage mechanisms that could become serious problems. If our technician finds a problem, he’ll advise you on the options to correct it.

Because garage door systems are complex and intricate, they can be dangerous to people who lack experience repairing them. For this reason, we stress that homeowners refrain from attempting to service their garage doors themselves.

The technicians who serviced my garage door were very friendly and professional. They took the time to explain the components and maintenance required on our garage door and future practices that I can perform to increase the longevity of our door. They recommended additional services that were not required as a suggestion and not forced.

Better communication from the office when the technician is running behind would be helpful. My technician showed up at 5pm. When they finally arrived, they were very professional and knowledgeable about garage doors. I would welcome them back in the future for maintenance or installation of a new door. However, I did not care for your office staff and they lack of customer service. Thank you

Billing confusion. I was told 1. That the $30 diagnostic fee would come off the bill. If replacing the rollers was $155 then 30 less would total $125. The tune up charge was 69. So the phone wuote was 59+125= $184 and 2. Was told that the tune up was $59 but was charged $69. I was billed $224.
