Is your garage door showing signs it needs to be replaced or repaired?
If you’re not sure how to check, Garage Force One listed 3 IMPORTANT and EASY ways to identify if your garage door is failing you.
The key is for homeowners to spot these critical signs before the garage won’t open or becomes a safety hazard.
- Pull the red safety handle on your garage door opener when the garage door is closed and lift your garage door manually. If your garage door is heavy and falls to the ground, you need to have your springs adjusted. If the garage door springs are not working properly, it is making your garage door motor do all the work which will then make your garage door motor not last as long.
- Check for metal fatigue around your garage door. Is the metal on your garage door cracking or rusting? If the garage door tracks start rusting, it prevents your garage door from running smoothly. High humidity is one of the biggest reasons this happens and in Florida it is more common.
- What kind-of sound does your garage door make when it opens? Squeaky hinges and grinding noises can mean your garage door rollers and hinges are not working properly. Or, there may be an issue with the opener itself.
These issues do not necessarily mean you need to replace your garage door. However, it is important to not wait to fix any of the problems.
There are around twenty-five moving parts on your garage door that. These parts pivot, wind, spring and support a garage door that can weigh upwards of 250 pounds. While that seems dangerous, there are simple ways to keep up with general maintenance.
