Common Garage Door Repairs

 

Spring Replacement

There are two different springs on garage doors: torsion springs and extension springs. Torsion springs are located directly above the garage door (on the inside of your garage) and provide smooth and even operation. They raise and lower the door safely, as they counterbalance the weight of the door and actually lift it. They work together as a pair. Extension springs run parallel to each track on both sides. Extension springs work independently of each other and wobble back and forth, causing uneven wear on door parts. Both sets of springs can crack or break, needing replacement.

 

Broken Cables

The pulley and cable system is a complex portion of your garage door operation. Cables can break and come off the pulleys. A cable by itself is relatively inexpensive, but repairing it yourself is dangerous and complicated and we do not recommend a DIY fix.

 

Garage Door Openers

Your garage door opener is a powerful workhorse. You probably don’t even don’t notice it…until it stops working. Because of age and life expectancy, or power issues, garage door openers can malfunction. There are several problems that can develop with your opener such as your door not closing all the way, or reversing just before hitting the floor.

 

Opener Remotes

Along the same lines, garage door opener remote controls can also stop working properly from time to time. There are many types of opener remotes, from push buttons and key switches to keyless entries and induction loop systems. All of these have their own unique potential for failure.

 

Weather Seal Replacement

The weather seal is the rubber stripping that keeps out the rain, snow, and bugs from entering through that thin opening between the bottom of your garage door and floor. It is an inexpensive, but necessary, fix when your weather seal becomes eroded or damaged. Homes in harsher weather climates will most likely need to change out their weather stripping more often than houses in milder conditions.

 

Panel Replacement

Now to the outside of the garage door—panels can get bumped by cars, bikes, you name it. They can also bend or warp if there are greater structural problems going on. Damaged garage panels are usually more than a cosmetic issue, so again, it is best to consult a professional when you need a garage door panel replacement.

 

Unusual Sounds

If your garage door suddenly develops a grinding sound, it may be a torsion spring issue. A popping sound can indicate some sections are not aligning. In any case, any unusual noise should be investigated before the problem gets worse.

 

Garage Doors are Off Tracks

When the door roller jumps the tracks, it’s not just that your garage door no longer runs smoothly. This is one repair job that must be handled by a professional, fast, because doors that are off the tracks can fall on someone and cause serious injury.

 

Garage Doors are Sagging

Sagging doors indicate an out-of-balance garage door. The springs on this type of door can snap, causing the door to fail.

 

Slow Opening and Closing

Delays in opening and closing can mean the hinges, rollers, or tracks are sticking and need lubrication. If this does not solve the delay, the issue may be more serious and needs a qualified professional.

When it comes to garage door safety, you are the key.

What garage door opener is best for my garage door? It depends on the size of the door and the features you value.

Regardless of the type of garage door opener, you should first and foremost focus on safety. Consider the following statistics from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS). In 2019 alone, 15,000 people suffered injuries caused by garage doors. Some causes—such as falling doors and do-it-yourself injuries—were caused by improper installation, which only further emphasizes the importance of using a trusted professional for your garage door maintenance and installation.
