COMMON GARAGE DOOR ISSUES THAT REQUIRE REPAIR OR SERVICE
The overall life span of a garage door can move between years to even decades if installed correctly. However, it is inevitable for some of the parts that assemble the garage door to wear down and affect the garage door’s functionality. In some cases, servicing the garage door can prevent deterioration and extended its life. In the long run replacing parts will be a must. Here’s a list of a common issues that you may find in garage doors.
The most obvious and straight forward issue is that the door wont open or close. Since there’s a variety of reasons that can prevent the door from opening or closing, it is recommended to check that there’s no external object which will disrupt the garage door from working properly. In addition, it is advised to manually try to open or close the garage door to eliminate some potential issues.
Most of garage doors are making noise when they operate to a certain degree. However, if the garage door is making noises that are out of the ordinary, it probably means that one or more of the moving parts in the entire system is faulty. In some cases, the fix can be very simple. A little bit of tuning, maybe spraying grease or oil and the problem is fixed. However, sometimes there is no way out then replacing the damaged part to ensure the problem will not repeat itself. A great way to extend the life of certain parts is to service it every month or so.
Another easy issue to detect is when one or both sides of the garage door is coming of its rails. In this scenario, most likely, the door will be visibly offside as it will be hanging around with nothing to support it. For the same reason, it might make a lot of noise as there is friction between the 2 metals. Usually, this happens when either the door or the rail is being damaged or they’re not in a good condition.
When a user gives a command to the door to open or close, the door should start to react within a second or two and operate flawlessly. If it takes longer then a second or two and the operation is sluggish and does not run smoothly, there might be an issue with the opener or the door. The solution for this issue can vary from fine tuning of the motor to a more complex issue.
It is advised to check the balance between the weight of the door and the tension spring. In case there’s lack of harmony between them, the garage door, when in motion, may react violently or sluggish in favour of one of the actions – whilst opening or closing.
