Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Do you suggest preventative maintenance for the tracks, hinges, rollers and springs?
Anytime Garage Door can perform a tune-up at your home. For a small fee, a technician will perform an industry leading 26-point inspection of your garage door including any needed lubrication and adjustments. If any part needs to be replaced, you will be consulted before a change is made. We recommend preventive maintenance every 2 years, based on 2000 cycles per year.
I just bought an older home, should I get my garage door looked at?
If the previous owner did not give you copies of the last garage door service, there is no reason to wait to get your garage door looked at. We will provide a free 26-point inspection, and for a small fee we offer a lube & tube service, including lubing moving parts, and tightening loose nuts and bolts. Check out our lube & tune first time special: here.
Why should I keep my garage doors in good condition?
Garage doors rely on a number of unique and interconnected parts to function properly. Since these doors will likely be used on a regular basis, it is important that the hardware used to maneuver them is reliable. Even the most durable parts can break down over time, so many people find themselves needing residential garage door repair at one point or another.
Why should I hire a professional to work on my garage doors?
Residential garage doors come in many variations, but any type of garage door can be dangerous to work on without the proper training. While it may be easy to spot certain problems with a garage door, handling the repair can be a different matter entirely. A heavy garage door that is jamming, moving slowly, or making abnormal amounts of noise may be in danger of coming loose. This could cause serious damage, so attempting to do the repair yourself is not advised. Call us for same-day service and free estimates, so you don't have to risk danger.
What should I do if the spring at the top of my garage door is broken?
A broken spring is a safety hazard. Broken garage door springs could cause your garage door to open unevenly or make screeching or unusual noises. Do not attempt to operate the door. To prevent harm or further damage, be sure to call us for a same-day service appointment and a free estimate if you suspect broken springs. Learn more about broken springs: here.

Do I need garage door weatherstripping?
For residential garage doors, we offer a variety of weatherstripping for any garage door. Weatherstripping can keep cold winds out, block cold or hot air, and prevent debris and animals from coming inside your garage.
When do I need to replace my garage door's weatherstripping?
If your garage door's weatherstripping is cracked, torn, ripped or there's a breeze or dirt coming in around the door, it is time to put new weatherstripping on. Depending on the type of weatherstripping used, we recommend replacing it along your garage doors to improve insulation every 2-3 years.
