3. Cables. Cables are inspected for fraying and kinking, which leads to damage.

4. Drums. Drum are looked over unusual defects and cracking.

7. End Bearing Plates. The bearings allow the spring bar to turn freely as the door opens and closes. We check to make sure there are no faults.

8. Spring Bar. We inspect for rust and bending. The spring bar holds the springs and turns as the door opens and closes.

9. Hinges. Hinges are inspected for damage and excessive wear.

10. Top Brackets. Top brackets hold the top roller in place, and meticulously inspected.

11. Bottom Brackets. Bottom brackets are mounted on the lower garage door and hold the bottom rollers in place. These brackets contribute to the lifting point on the garage door.

12. Vertical Tracks. Bending and damage can occur; we check them to ensure they are up to par.

13. Horizontal Track. We also inspect for bending and damage.

14. Jamb Brackets. Jamb brackets attach the vertical tracks to the frame work on each side of the garage door opening, our Inspection searches for position, bending and other damage.

15. Strut. Struts are added supports for the garage door structure. Struts may be added if damage requires additional struts for support.

16. Weather Seal. Weather seals are rubber located at the bottom of the garage door. This seal helps prevent wind and windblown objects from entering the garage.

18. Opener Controls. Controls are inspected for functioning efficiency.

19. Opener Trolley/Carriage. Inspected for damage and grinding in screw drive openers.

20. Safety Eyes. The safety eyes keep the door from closing if a person or object is in the garage doors path. 

21. Motor Gears. Motor gears are susceptible to wear and tear in belt and chain drive so we look for proper tension and sign of deterioration.

23. Limits. Check the limits to ensure the door opens and closes to the proper travel locations.

24. Opening/Closing Force. We test the force limits to ensure there is proper force being applied to the door during opening and closing.
