2 Signs that It’s Time for Garage Door Maintenance

Is your garage door making strange noises? Is it even when it opens or closes? If you answered yes to the first question and no to the second, it is definitely time to invest in some garage door maintenance. Some maintenance you can do on your own, but in most cases it is better to hire a professional garage door company to ensure that everything is done properly.

Noises when Opened and Closed

Noises are generally the first indication something somewhere is going wrong. Depending on where the noise is coming from it can be a signal of a number of issues such as:

  • Abent or crooked track
  • A misaligned reinforcing strut
  • A failing spring or cable

If your garage door is making strange noises and you cannot figure out why, do not hesitate to call a professional. There is potential for danger when using the door until the repair is made.

Uneven Door

If your door does not open or close evenly, this is a sign of a problem. A few things can cause this issue, and it is best left to a garage door service professional to figure out. If you make an incorrect repair yourself, there is potential for serious injury.

Even the most well-versed do-it-yourselfers need to turn to a professional for help with garage doors. It is better to be safe than sorry, as malfunctioning garage doors can cause serious injury, and even death. Professionals can diagnose and repair a problem safely.
