Garage Door Repair: The Usual Culprits

After repeated years of a redundant up-and-down role, your loyal & humble employee, garage door, caved in. It wrote you a resignation letter, and now, you need a compelling don't-go package (garage door repair) or a new staff (overhaul).

So much for loyalty, you say. But hey! Do you even care?

If only you had looked out for signs of complacency and tiredness! Who knows? You could have stopped your garage door before it attracts expensive fixes!

Wait, can you even stop a repair or overhaul without the knowledge of garage door problems? Can you keep your employee excited if oblivious of his pains? Why do garage doors fail?

Knowing Your Garage Door: Its Usual Problems

The first step to regaining and maintaining a perfect-condition door is knowing its defects. With no knowledge of the defect, you wouldn't even know if your door malfunctions.

For that reason, this piece compiled the common issues homeowners face with their garage doors. Have a look:

Frozen & Noisy Garage Doors

It's the icy winter months; your door stuck to your garage floor because of the moisture and cold. So, what do you do?

Try to open the door, eh?

At the slightest push, the door often opens with little restraints in winter. However, with a hard-stuck door, you apply more force, don't you?

When you kick or bang at your garage door, you risk damages to your door openers. Also, depending on the force you applied, your forceful opening could lead to broken springs and stripped gears.

About noisy doors, they are more of symptoms; like telltale signs your door gives off to indicate worn-out hinges and metal tracks.

Inconsistent Garage Door Opener

Somedays, your door openers malfunction as a result of technical glitches. Most days, however, you are the architect of your door troubles. How?

Remember, you were kicking at the door during winter!

And now, your opener wouldn't respond to a gentle knock - that's if it'll even respond at all.

Worn-out Springs and Garage Door

By design, your garage door is a complex of pulley systems with various springs. The springs support the weight of the door as you lift and release.

Eventually, those springs wear out due to accumulated stress after continued use. When such happens, you find the garage door strenuous to open by hand.

Like springs, garage doors also wear out!

Imagine a poorly-maintained door - dusty, un-oiled, and frozen. Under poor conditions, regardless of the quality of your door, it washes out soon.

In contrast, a properly-maintained door lasts for years - beautiful and easy to use.

Now, you know your employee. Let's make it happy!

Either worn out duly after continued use or as a result of lack of maintenance, repairs give your garage door a reface.
