Is it time to replace your garage door? If you’re thinking about it, that’s a sign you probably should, at least eventually. Your garage door is the largest entrance to your home. It provides safety and security while also being one of the most noticeable parts of the street-facing view of the home. Your garage door should be in great shape. A working garage door is not only a matter of security, but also safety, aesthetics and even property value.
Sagging Wooden Doors
If you have a sagging wooden door, you’ll probably want to replace it. If it is only in a panel or 2, you might get away with only replacing those panels. But if the entire door is sagging or warped, you’re better off replacing the entire door. Don’t put this off. A warped door can also ruin your track and be hard on your opener, costing you more in the long run.
A Loud Door
For a loud door, you should first try oiling down all the components with a garage door lubricant. Don’t use WD40 as it will cause your door to rust.
You should also tighten down any bolts, fasteners or other components. This will go a long way towards quieting your garage door.
But if your door is still loud, it may be time to consider a new one. Contact a company that specializes in garage door replacements for more advice.
