Knowing these 5 signs to watch for can help you determine if you need garage door repairs. At Doorcare, we understand how important it is for your garage door to work as efficiently and optimally as possible. That is why we offer a wide range of residential garage door repair services to customers living throughout Abbotsford and the surrounding areas.
Some of the most common signs that your garage door needs repairs include:
If your garage door refuses to open or close using the control buttons, chances are that it will need to be repaired; however, before calling an Abbotsford garage door repair professional to fix the problem, it is important to test the garage door by first ensuring that nothing is blocking it from closing and then trying the controls again. If the garage door still does not open or close, there may be a bad connection between the door and the control panel or a malfunction with the door itself.
An important sign to keep an eye out for is how long it takes for your garage door to respond after you push the button. If the garage door does not begin to open after a second or two, or if it is not opening smoothly, there may be something wrong with the door or the opener.
Consider testing the balance of the garage door on your Abbotsford home at least once a month by disconnecting the opener and manually operating the door. When doing so, open the door about halfway and let go. If the door continues to rise or fall, there may be a problem with the tension spring or other parts of the door.
While most garage doors make a lot of noise when being operated, it is important to note if there is any squeaking or straining. If the squeaking becomes excessive, there might be a problem with the spring, opener bracket, or opener itself.
In order for a garage door to operate properly, it must remain within the tracks that are placed on either side of the door. In most cases, when a door comes off the tracks, it is no longer in good condition or has been damaged.
