What is a garage door inspection?
A garage door inspection is a professional service that entails looking and assessing the condition of your garage door. These inspections can be conducted for different specific reasons.

Benefits of a garage door inspection service
A garage door inspection has several benefits to any homeowner. They include:

They will look at everything from the doors rails to the motor, the torsion springs, and even the cable springs. At the end of the process you will get a simple report indicating the condition of all these areas. Any areas that need repair, servicing or replacement will be indicated and recommendations offered.
