Now many people may complain that their garage door is either consuming a lot of electricity or it does not move as fast (up and down) as it used to. Some homeowners may also complain that their garage door makes strange noises when being operated, which is a cause for concern. However, in our experience, 80% of all issues can be fixed and prevented with a professional tuneup. We’d go so far as to say that you need a garage door tuneup at least once a year.

In this article, we’ll look at 3 reasons why all homeowners should invest in an annual garage door tuneup.

Reason no. 1: A Professional Garage Door Tuneup Saves You Money

Let’s face it a garage door that’s stressing the garage door opener, is going to mean that if the issue isn’t fixed in time, it will lead to the opener needing to be replaced. A tuneup can remedy the issue in most cases. If the issue is fixed in time, you’re going to save a bundle on having to buy a new garage door opener.

In addition to saving you money on a new garage door opener, a tuneup can also help fix other aspects of the garage door’s performance which you might have otherwise overlooked.

Reason no. 2: Your Garage Door Is Sluggish

Many homeowners complain that their garage door opens and closes slowly. Some may even report that their garage door opens slower than usual but closes normally. Now while there can be several reasons for this, in most cases a professional garage door tuneup should fix the problem.

A professional tuneup also allows garage door professionals to take a look at your garage door and if there is a problem they can report it to you. That way the issue can be fixed before it gets any worse and possibly ending up leaving you stranded in the middle of the night.

Reason no. 3: Your Garage Door is Noisy

A noisy garage door can point to many different issues. One of the most common issues is that there is a lack of lubrication. However, it can also point to a problem with the opener, rust on the rails etc. The only way to fix it in many cases is with a tuneup. A tuneup improves the performance of a garage door with lubrication and other procedures, so in 70% of the cases, the noises either disappear entirely or are reduced significantly.


An annual garage door tuneup can save you hundreds of dollars in repairs each year while making your garage door perform reliably. That’s why, as expert garage door specialists, we always recommend that you get the garage door tuned up by a team of professionals.
