Garage doors add security and convenience to your garage. But they do deteriorate over time and will need maintenance. Sometimes the problems have a simple fix like lubricating any moving parts or clearing debris from the track. But there are more serious problems that do require help from a professional. Here are 5 problems that require garage door service.
- Your Garage Door Is Making Noise When Opening or Closing. While noises can sometimes be easily fixed with a little lubrication, sometimes there is a bigger reason for the sounds you hear. Misaligned tracks or failing parts can also cause your garage door to make additional noises. These problems are best looked at by a professional who has the knowledge to effectively and safely repair your garage door.
- Your Garage Door Doesn’t Respond to the Remote. If you have trouble opening or closing the garage door with the remote, it could just be a dead battery. If you have replaced the battery or find that your garage door is also not responding to the wall switch, then it may be time to call a professional for a garage door service. We can determine if your motor is functioning properly or if there are parts that need to be replaced.
- Your Garage Door Closes Then Opens Again. There are a few causes for this problem. A professional can check if there is something interfering with the closing mechanism or if the photo eyes are misaligned.
- Rough or Incomplete Movement of Your Garage Door. If your garage door is not moving as it should, it is time to call a professional. Your garage door is very heavy and could cause serious injury if it were to fall on someone. A professional can safely fix your garage door’s movement.
- The Cables Are Snapped. If you hear a loud bang when your garage door shuts, this could be the sound of the cables breaking or a snapped spring. Damaged or frayed cables should only be repaired by a professional because they hold high amounts of tension and can be very dangerous to work with.
