6 Reasons Why Your Garage Door is Squeaking

6 Reasons Why Your Garage Door is Squeaking

  1. Alignment issues: If any components of your garage door are out of sync, they can cause an annoying squeak. Misaligned moving parts can prompt metal to rub on metal, which will result in a squeaky sound.
  2. Wheels and rollers: Your garage door’s wheels and rollers help keep things moving along. If these pieces become dented, bent or warped, it can prompt your door to go up and down in the wrong direction and metal on metal movements. 
  3. Off track: Your track keeps your door in place and moving along smoothly. Any problems with your garage door’s track can create squeaking. Check out your track for any cracks, splits, gouges, pits or pockmarks.
  4. In the way: Debris that has built up anywhere within your garage door’s system can cause noises. This can be insects, stones, dirt, mud, dried leaves or any kind of debris. If you hear squeaking, take a good look at your trackers, rollers, frame and springs to see if there is any debris that can be easily removed.
  5. Rusted pieces: As time goes on, some of your nuts or bolts can become rusty and create an environment for noises. You can apply grease to help with this issue.
  6. Chain reaction: A chain that is too tight or too slack or that has missing links can malfunction and needs to be addressed by a professional technician who understands how to work on garage door systems.
