22 Mar The 3 Most Common Garage Door Repairs for Overhead Garage Doors
Garage doors are highly complex mechanical devices. Most of the time, they run so smooth it’s easy to take them for granted. Yet when they break, it seems like our whole world comes crashing down (quite literally if your garage door has a bad spring). Here are 3 of the most common garage door repairs we’ve helped our customers with.
Garage Door Spring Replacement
Your garage door springs are essential to the function of your garage door. They are the reason your garage door opens so smoothly in the first place. At the same time, they are definitely the one repair issue you always want to leave to a professional. These springs are under an incredible amount of tension. If one should suddenly snap, it can cause serious bodily injury — even death. Got a spring issue? Give us a call — we’d be happy to help!
Bent Track Repair
Bent tracks are a very common problem with garage doors. Ideally, they are perfectly straight. This allows the wheels of your garage door to carry the door up and down. When they aren’t straight, the garage door can easily go off track, which can cause big problems if you continue to use the door. If the track is bent or warped, it will need to be replaced.
Garage Door Opener Problems
Your average garage door opener will last about half as long as the garage door itself. This means you’ll likely have to replace the garage door opener at least once before you replace the garage door. Opener problems are common and usually simple to fix. The first thing we suggest is to check the batteries and power supply. Nine times out of 10, it’s a power issue, which is fortunately very easy to fix.
