Commercial garage doors are in a class of their own when it comes to garage doors, so it can be difficult to know how often you should maintain them or when it’s time for a commercial garage door repair. Here are some key indicators that it’s time to service your commercial garage door.
You suspect that something is wrong with your commercial door.
Of course, if you suspect that something may be wrong with your commercial door, it’s time to call a specialist immediately. A commercial door specialist can address minor issues before they escalate into larger ones, and they can even anticipate door issues that may be on the horizon. Ultimately, this helps you reduce downtime at the workplace and keeps your garage door functioning well all year long.
You want to reduce your likelihood of down-time.
Because commercial garage doors are so often at the center of everyday work, a malfunctioning commercial door can throw a major wrench in your workflow, wasting valuable work time. Therefore, it’s important to have your commercial door inspected and serviced regularly—even if it seems to be working properly. Doing so will prevent garage door malfunctions and safety hazards, and it will even extend the lifespan of your door.
When was the last time you had your commercial door inspected and tuned up? A good goal is to have your commercial door inspected at least once a year with normal use. If it’s been longer than a year since your last commercial door service, go ahead and give your garage door specialist a call.
You feel that your garage door could be better protected.
Even if your commercial garage door is well maintained, unexpected damage can happen in the blink of an eye. Heavy machinery, for example, can make contact with your commercial garage door and damage it, sending it out of commission. If you’re worried about your commercial door being damaged, you should know that a commercial garage door specialist can help you take wise preventative measures to protect your commercial door. Installing a heavy duty bottom bar at the base of your garage door, for example, can prevent accidental forklift impact at the base of your door. (You can read more about these types of preventative measures in this blog post.) So if you want to protect your commercial garage door from damage, go ahead and give your commercial door specialist a call.
