the InterNACHI House of Horrors, Ray Kline, a certified master inspector, walks you through garage door inspections through a YouTube video called “Quick Inspection Tip: Garage Systems.”
In order to ensure that the exterior of the door is even and level inside the opening, it is necessary to first be examined. Also, the racking needs to be checked to ensure that the rails for guides aren’t being forced against walls. Also, look whether there is any cosmetic or structural damage on the door’s surface. It is crucial to examine the seals on garage doors near both the edges and beneath the floor of the door.
The inspection of the tension spring and guide rails as well as the fixing hardware used to mount the door are best done when the door is shut from the inside. Loose components indicate that the garage door needs repairs or replacement of the parts.
It is crucial to examine the door opener to ensure there is no slack.
