The Importance of Maintenance

Too often, garage doors are the most used and least thought about parts of our home.

The longer you neglect your garage door, the bigger a problem it can become. Aside from keeping it in good working order, regularly maintaining your garage will:

  • Add value to your home by maintaining a great garage door
  • Provide ongoing and adequate protection from the elements
  • Enhance the product life of your doors
  • Maintain your garage door and motor warranty
  • Be more cost-effective in the long term

Regular maintenance is essential to all garage doors, no matter what material they are constructed from.

Common Garage Door Problems

The issues associated with lack of maintenance to your garage door can be costly. The most common problems with unmaintained doors include:

  • Jamming
  • Operating on its own
  • Getting stuck while opening or closing
  • Not opening automatically (will open manually)
  • Broken springs and hinges
  • Unusual noises coming from the garage door or motor

These problems may start small, and sometimes you may not even notice them. However, these issues can lead to more significant and more costly issues as time progresses.

    Many other problems can cause your garage door to malfunction, so getting your garage door serviced every one to two years is essential. The longer you leave it, the more expensive it will be to repair. If your garage door motor is giving you grief, call the experts.

    What We Do

    When our technicians visit your property, they will conduct a service and reset the motor and door. Once complete, it will enable the technician to advise you on whether the motor needs to be repaired or replaced. As a trusted repair agent of all brands, makes and models, we can fit and install brand new, genuine parts to your motor.

    Our team assess your motor’s requirements and will repair all makes and models. Of course, this will all depend on the age of the motor and whether it is a single or double spaced garage.

    Fantastic customer service from start to finish. Quick reply to request for quote, visited the same week to measure up. Consultative approach and advice with good product knowledge – no sales pitch. Good price, delivered and installed on time. Unfortunately had a problem with motor which also damaged the paint on door. Motor replaced immediately under manufacturer warranty with no quibbles and door replaced at their cost after a couple of unsuccessful attempts to repair. Couldn’t be happier with experience. Highly recommend Andy and the team.

    Great service! Fixed my door for a reasonable price and tech also took the time to explain how I can keep it operating smoothly. He was very knowledgeable and adjusted the door so it doesn’t wear so much on the cable. Top notch service.

The price was reasonable and the service was efficient. Thanks again. I would highly recommend Swan Garage Doors.

    I called Swan Garage just after 4pm because one of the garage door panel popped out and it wouldn’t close. Receptionist asked about problem, gave a quote and arranged for technician to come out after he finished couple more jobs in the area. Within couple hours technician Adrian came and knew exactly what to do to fix the garage door and was very friendly and professional, he explained the issue and answers every question I have with a smile. I didn’t feel safe with garage door not being able to close so thankyou Swan Garage for arranging to have it fixed so swiftly and your technician Adrian is a legend and a total asset to your company. Will definitely use Swan Garage again and highly recommended.

    I needed an urgent call out for my garage door. Emma sent someone within the hour and they were there before I could blink. Adrian was fantastic – new his stuff, explained what had happened and advised on the best way forward to prevent the same problem occurring again. Will ONLY use Swan Garage Doors in future and recommend them to anyone. Emma – thank you so much for organising this so quickly for me!

    Really quick responses to emails and an online enquiry. The technician that came to our house the next day was delightful and provided us with amazing service. Highly recommend!
    Milena König
    A couple of weeks ago I jammed my garage door and it seized up. It is a Centurion door and I rang Centurion in Malaga for service. They couldn’t help me as they were booked out for weeks and directed me to my local service centre Swan Garage Doors. So glad they did. Office staff fantastic and booked me in for the next day and the technician that attended was excellent. Told me exactly what the the issue was, the cost and possible future problems for something that I openly admitted to causing. Everything is working fine now but if the motor does eventually die they provide high quality steel motors with 7 year warranties. Great business to deal with.
    After buying an established house our garage door has had issues from time to time being an older unit we have had to have the door rebalanced and eventually the motor replaced as it was original with the house. We have been customers for the last 2+ years and love the friendly and timely service provided. On another positive note the cost of repairs is very manageable and quotes are usually less than other companies. I would not go anywhere else for garage door repairs and enquires.

    Very impressed with Swan Garage Doors (and the team at Wright Professionals). Our panel lift door ground to a halt last Friday in the morning after bringing in the bins. I noticed the wire had come off the reel on the tension rod. The door now jammed in the closed position I made a desperate call for help. To my great surprise the door had already been fixed when I rang late Friday afternoon from the office to enquire about when a serviceman could call out to repair. As a registered builder and maintenance contractor I have found that this prompt service is as rare as hens teeth. Many thanks to SGD for their commendable work. Stephen D, Kingsley WA
    Stephen Deards
    From initial quote through to post install Swan Garage doors were simply brilliant. First class design process for my tricky application which was subsequently well executed ahead of schedule. Thanks guys.
    Steve Allen
    Wanted to give a huge shout out to Swan Garage Doors who responded to a very frantic me first thing this morning when my door came unhinged and I couldn’t escape my home! Ed has been and done his magic and my garage door is now running smooth as. All of my interactions with Swan have always been so amazing in every way. What an incredible local business. Bravo!
    Nikki Irwin
    I am delighted to give a 5* rating to this service; after placing a phone call to Swan Garage Doors on Monday 07/09 here they are turning up to provide service in less than 48hours – in fact closer to 24hours. That is service! In this day & age when things can take forever to get done and you wait & wait for somebody to turn up, to be informed I’d get a service technician between 08.30 & 10.30 today and an advance sms/call just ahead of arrival AND for it to be exactly that is amazing. Steve arrived just after 09.00; cleaned & serviced the garage door mechanism & resolved the intermittent operational problem all in about 15minutes and ever so reluctantly accepted a coffee while doing so. To get the job done, no time wasted – to be able to receive & settle my account on the spot and get the receipt emailed immediately – all terrific; well done Swan Garage Doors generally & Steve in particular. No hesitation what-so-ever in recommending this service. NB – WA 6057
