Over the years, we’ve seen every problem that a garage door could have; from damage done by a vehicle to monsoon damage. Regardless of what might’ve caused the damage, rest assured that we have a solution. Here are some common problems that we diagnose and resolve:
Garage door springs don’t last forever. They’re under a lot of tension and they eventually give out. This can lead to strange noises and slow operation. If you experience these issues, it’s best to get ahead of it before it becomes a bigger problem.
Track misalignment is pretty common. A symptom of this can be your garage door getting stuck or operating improperly. Adjusting the tracks so they are properly aligned can resolve this issue.
Garage Door Openers have several components that can act up; sensors, gears, or circuit boards. When your garage door opener gives out, your garage door will be inoperable. If that’s the case, it’s time to give us a call.
The cable that allow your garage door to lift and lower can become damaged over time. Common signs of wear are frayed cables. This can be dangerous so if you notice that your garage door cables aren’t in the best shape, it’s best to get them replaced.
Rollers wear out over time, causing the door to operate noisily or unevenly. Replacing worn or broken rollers can restore smooth operation.
Weather Seal Replacement:
A visual inspection is enough to diagnose this common problem. If your weather seal isn’t flush with the ground when your garage door is closed, this can allow wind, water, sand, and those pesky desert pests to get in. Replacing the weather seal can improve energy efficiency and protect your garage.
This is another common garage door repair job that we see. Sometimes we get a bit clumsy and drive into our garage door. It happens! And sometimes the damage is done by weather. Having a damaged garage door can make it difficult or impossible to operate and it’s also an eye sore. If you have a damaged garage door panel, give us a call for a free estimate.
Much like your common house door, hinges can become loose or damaged, affecting the smooth operation of the garage door. Having your hinges properly installed and tightened up will ensure proper function of your garage.
If you’re experiencing difficulty getting your garage door remote to communicate with your garage door opener, it might just need to be reprogrammed. If you’re experiencing this issue, we’ll happily come out and address the problem.
These are just a few examples of the types of garage door repairs that we see and fix. If you’re unsure how to perform these repairs yourself, it’s best to contact us for assistance.
