Preventative Maintenance

Regular maintenance is an important factor in keeping your garage door system operating properly. Your garage door is used almost every day and it is the largest moving part in your home. Over time, parts of your garage can begin to show signs of break or wear that can become a safety hazard. A visit from our experts at Motor City Door can help keep your garage system operating properly for a long time. At Motor City Door, we provide preventative maintenance for a variety of garage door systems.


Motor City Door’s preventative maintenance servicing of sectional doors include:

  • Inspection, tightening, lubrication and/or adjustment of all sections
  • Door alignment
  • Inspection of hinges, hardware, cables, drums, track and track fasteners
  • Tightening/inspection of springs
  • Inspection of rollers, bearings and chain hoists


Motor City Door’s preventative maintenance servicing of operators include:

  • Inspection, tightening, lubrication and/or adjustment of all limit switches, belts, brakes, clutches and sprockets
  • Inspection of mountings, disconnects, roller chains, bearings and safety devices
  • Completion of a detailed preventive maintenance inspection checklist and noting of any safety issues or recommended repairs
  • An extra copy of the review of the preventive maintenance inspection checklist sent with the invoice


Whenever possible, authorized repairs are done at the time of preventive maintenance inspection.

This preventive maintenance is billed on a per door basis. During the preventive maintenance, any replacement of small parts deemed necessary for optimal operation of equipment will be performed. If major repairs require extended hours to perform or major part costs are needed, then prior approval will be received before repairs are completed.

The preventative maintenance cost will be $149.00 for the first door and $49.00 each door thereafter.

Note: Preventative maintenance cannot predict the life expectancy of springs or the failure of motor operators. The inspection and PM can only optimize the functionality of the equipment at the point in time of performance.
