When Should I Replace My Garage Door Opener?

Your garage door opener is—for the most part—unseen but hard working day in and day out. For the most part, it’s durable and able to last for about 10 or 15 years. However, this is an average. Some openers last longer and some don’t quite make it to the 10 year mark—but keeping up with maintenance can help increase the lifespan.

Schedule Maintenance Service to Ensure a Longer Operator Lifespan

Professional garage door maintenance typically includes:

  • Visual inspection of the springs, rollers, cables, track and pulleys (for signs of wear and tear)
  • Lubrication of moving parts to ensure smooth operation
  • Door balance
  • Reversal test
  • Force setting test
  • Additional safety devices

When should you replace your garage door opener? Annual maintenance is a good minimum for ensuring your garage door and opener last as long as possible, but it can be helpful to have professionals inspect and repair your door more often, especially when the winter ends and after severe storms.

If your garage door opener is older than 10 or 15 years and has never had a major problem, it’s still a good idea to start thinking about replacement. After all, modern openers tend to be:

  • Safer
  • Quieter
  • More convenient
