Did You Know…
It costs $125-290 for a garage door repair. Save your money and prevent repairs with regular maintenance through homekeep™.
The tasks we perform and why they are important for your home:
Lubricate and align cabinet doors
Lubricating prevents squeaking and prolongs the life of the hinges while aligning the doors ensures they close properly and do not damage each other.
Lubricate and adjust window hinges
Keeping window hinges lubricated and adjusted helps maintain the proper opening and closing functions, keeping debris, bugs, and dirt out.
Clean and lubricate sliding door tracks
Cleaning and lubricating sliding door tracks ensure they open and close easily.
Inspect window seals, screens, weather stripping, and interior door thresholds, latches, and operation
Inspecting seals and screens ensures they are airtight, keeping warm air in and cool air out (or vice versa) and preventing insects and mice from entering the home. Checking latches and locks ensures they work correctly for safety and security purposes.
The most common problems with doors, windows, and garage doors are the seals, tracks, and springs, which can crack and break affecting door and window operation and insulation. Keeping these tightened and lubricated will help ensure that you have fewer problems as they age – meaning fewer repairs down the road.
You can inspect any door by simply testing its function. Does it open and close smoothly? Does it make noise? Also, pay attention to the seals located around the door jam and the door itself. These “seals” which are also referred to as gaskets sometimes, can become weathered over time, thus allowing elements in from the outside.
You can inspect a window by checking if it opens and closes smoothly, if you hear excessive noise from outside, and if there are any cracks or gaps present. Running your fingers along the edges of the frame perimeter can help identify any issues.
To inspect a garage door: first, open and close the garage door to inspect its function. Next, check the seal at the bottom of the door itself from the outside and inside, looking for signs of light (gaps in the seal), structural damage, etc. A common reason for gaps in the seal may actually be related to the driveway pavement, which can heave and crack as it ages.
