It’s SO Loud!
One of the most common complaints we hear from customers who are unsure of whether or not their garage is actually broken… noise. They know it’s not normal (after all, it didn’t used to make noise), but it still functions so they call us wondering whether or not there’s even a problem.
Every garage door is equipped with springs, rollers, and cables that are sufficiently lubed to get the opening and closing job done well. Over time, without routine maintenance, the door doesn’t work quite as smoothly, and becomes a little louder. But why? Lube is very important to the garage door function; it’s also important to note that the majority of the lube changes in consistency when the weather changes.
For example, an extreme swing in colder temperatures may make the lube a thinner consistency, causing the cables, springs and rollers to grind relentlessly against each other, rather than gliding smoothly by. Rough grinding and wear and tear without proper lubrication can easily cause an annoyingly loud noise at best, or a broken spring, an off track roller, or a snapped cable at worst.
It Won’t Open!
Have you found yourself without a functioning garage door? Chances are you may put off calling about a noisy door for a while, but you’ll call very quickly to figure out why your door won’t open (or close). One of the main causes of a broken door is broken springs – usually caused by extreme weather or lack of maintenance. Broken springs can result in a door that doesn’t move when the motor does, also a door that’s extremely loud and disruptive as it works. Another common problem with doors that won’t open and close? A broken roller.
A broken roller will cause the door will jump off its tracks as it opens and closes; this can be very dangerous for anyone around the door, so this problem should be fixed right away. Finally, other common reasons your garage door won’t open: snapped cables, overhead failures, and off track doors. All of this sounds scary, but rest assured if you have one of these issues, call us to schedule an appointment and have an experienced professional come check it out and provide you with an estimate for service.
