Common Garage Door Problems We Repair
Most garage door breakdowns and repairs are pretty straightforward, and we almost always have the parts on hand to fix the problem there and then. The most common garage door problems that we repair include:
- Broken springs. Garage door springs are an essential component of your garage door, supporting the weight of the garage door and making it easier to open. If a spring is broken, the garage door may refuse to lift. You should never attempt to repair/replace springs yourself – doing so can be very dangerous.
- Broken rails. The rails of a garage door, often referred to as the garage door track, are the pieces of metal that the garage door slides upon, and is guided by during its opening and closing. Rails may bend, crack, be blocked by debris, or could be damaged and dented, forcing the garage door off its track and resulting in a garage door that refuses to open and close, or does so very shakily and noisily.
- Broken cables. The job of the garage door cables is to lift the garage door. If cables are broken, the garage door will not open, or may come crashing down when you attempt to close it, which could be dangerous.
- Damaged panels. It is not just the moving parts of a garage door that can suffer damage; a garage door’s panels may be in disrepair as well. This can cause the garage door to open or close unevenly, which may eventually warp the door or create a hazard.
If your garage door is shaking when you open or close it, making strange noises, is refusing to open or close, or if you notice visible damage (i.e. your garage door panels are cracked or dented), you need to contact our professionals today. Not only is a broken garage door inconvenient, but failing to fix it could result in more significant damage, and could even be dangerous.
