What's Wrong With My Garage Door?
How often do you use your garage? Chances are pretty often—especially if you park your car in it or use your garage for a workshop. One of the primary components of every garage is its door. This creates the convenience homeowners are looking for to access the contents of their garage or to park their car. Garage doors and the entire system can be without issues for many years. However, one fateful day, they may have a problem. Garage door issues come in all shapes and sizes and can range from mild to severe repairs.
When something goes wrong with your garage door, you have three options. The first is to try and troubleshoot and repair yourself. The next is to pretend like nothing's wrong and deal with the inconvenience. Lastly, and what we believe is the best option is to hire a professional to make the necessary repairs. Let's take a look at some of the reasons you may need to call a professional garage door repair technician.
Squeaky, Loud Operation
Squeaky garage doors almost always need some type of maintenance. This is most often due to parts needing to be lubricated. Another more common reason for a garage door squeak is a bent wheel. When metal on metal happens, the friction creates an unwelcome sound.
Stuck Open or Shut
There are numerous reasons your garage door may not be lifting or closing the way it's supposed to. A top contributor to this is problems with the garage door lifting system. If the motor is worn out, it won't be able to lift. Other issues could include broken springs, the door being off track, or other part failures.
Remote Not Working
If you push the button on your garage door opener and nothing happens, this could be due to three reasons. The first is that the garage door opener itself is dysfunctional or needs a battery change. The second is that the garage door motor and the wireless signal are interrupted. The third is that the garage door motor is having issues. Troubleshooting this problem can often be difficult. However, replacing your garage door opener battery is a good first place to start.
