Garage Door Repairs: What Commonly Goes Wrong?
Garage doors may seem simple, but they are actually made up a variety of parts, all of which can deteriorate over time and break unexpectedly. When a garage door isn’t maintained and serviced on a regular basis, when it becomes a certain number of years old, or when it is damaged by force or weather, things can and do break. Some of the most common garage door problems that we see at Affordable Garage Door, Inc. include:
- Garage door refuses to open or close. One of the most frustrating things for a homeowner is a garage that will neither open nor close when the garage door opener button is hit. Most of the time, this is an easy fix – sometimes, something as simple as putting a new battery in a garage door opener is the solution.
- Garage door crashes when closing. A garage door crashing when closing is more than just frustrating – it can be downright dangerous. If your garage door is prone to crashing when it closes, stop using it immediately; in a worst scenario situation, a loved one, child, or pet may be the victim of a garage door’s aggressive tendencies. A crashing garage door may also cause damage to the door itself, leading to more expensive repairs.
- Dents, crack, and poorly aligned panels. Another one of the most common problems that we encounter are problems with the panels of the garage door itself. Whether because of deterioration with age, or as the result of force (such as hitting the garage door with your car accidentally), when panels are damaged, they can present problems. Broken panels can result in misalignment of a garage door, making it shaking and unstable. They also allow in moisture and provide poor insulation.
