Your garage doors are probably one of the best parts of your house. The convenience of being able to park your vehicle inside and have it be protected from the elements and dishonest people by a garage door is something that you probably never want to give up. This is why it is important to pay attention to your garage door and its system to make sure things are running smoothly, so you aren’t inconvenienced with a broken garage door. Here are a few signs that it is time for garage door repair.
- Jerking and Shuddering. No matter how old or new your garage door is, there is always going to be a bit of extra movement when it opens and closes. However, if you notice it moving more than it should, almost jerking and/or shuddering, that is not normal. Make sure to get someone over to your place to do some garage door repair before the problem gets worse and damages more of your garage door system.
- Opens Slowly. Your garage door should only take a few seconds to open or close. If you notice it is taking noticeably longer, then you may need to check your garage door springs. You also should make sure the tracks, rollers, and hinges are lubricated well so that your garage door can operate smoothly.
- Doesn’t Open or Close. It should be obvious something is wrong with your garage door if it doesn’t open or close. The issue could be a bad connection between your door and the controller, a door malfunction, a blockage, or another problem. If you have covered all the bases and still can’t find the problem, call a professional to take a look and determine the issue.
