Are You Heading for a Garage Door Repair? 3 Red Flags to Watch Out For

Garage doors are the largest and often most-often used doors of your home. Whether you have a multiple-car garage or a single-car garage, it’s no secret that many of us rely on this door to protect and house our valuables, act as a storage space, protect our vehicles as well as access to our homes. If you have an issue with your garage door, it can quickly become an issue with your schedule and your security, too.

Here at Access Garage Doors of Cleveland West, we want to help you with your garage door repairs whenever you need us. We offer 24/7 services, but would also like to offer some advice to our wonderful customers. Here are a few red flags that you should watch out for as they might be warning you of a garage door repair to come:

  1. Lagging Open/Close Response Times. If you arrive home and push on your opener remote, only to find that you have to repeat this sequence several times, you might have an issue. The trouble can lie in people believing there is something wrong with their remote, rather than the garage door or the opener. Change the batteries and double check, and be sure to contact us for a garage door repair if you are still having issues.
  2. Noisy Door or Opener. Most mechanics are going to make a little noise, even a garage door or opener. However, they shouldn’t be overly noisy or make a griding or whining noise. If it sounds different, get it checked out with a garage door repair.
  3. Uneven Opening of Garage Door. Your garage door is designed to operate as a whole, even though two sides of the tracks are working. If one side is raising or lowering faster than the other, this is a problem that needs a garage door repair.

If you suspect that you need a garage door repair or have any other questions, please give our team a call today.
