Is your Shoreham garage door's annual tune up creeping up on you? If so, don't hesitate. The average homeowner opens and closes their garage door over 1500 times per year. That's a lot of use. It's safe to say that garage doors are susceptible to a lot of wear and tear. Avoiding routine maintenance, or failing to address existing garage door issues can eventually lead to costly repairs, or even replacement.

There are a few simple things you can do to keep your door working smoothly for longer. Staying aware of your door's function is a great way to detect early warning signs of potential problems. Listen and watch for irregular noises and movements. Using an all purpose cleaner to wipe down your garage door will help you notice cracks, chips, rust, dents, warping, and other damage. Keeping debris and obstructions out of the path of the auto-reverse sensors will prevent jamming and jolting. Using a socket wrench to tighten loose screws, bolts, nuts, and roller brackets is certainly helpful. Throughout the year, it's important to make sure to lubricate the rollers, springs, pulleys, cables, and other moving parts of your door for lasting quality.

Common Garage Door Repairs

Troubleshooting your Shoreham garage door can potentially be confusing. Here are the most common garage door issues and repairs.

  • Broken Torsion Spring- Springs endure a lot of wear and tear. They are built for long term use but do eventually need to be replaced over time. If you're home when a spring breaks, you will hear a loud bang. It may sound like a firecracker going off. When this happens, you will notice that your garage door may not open, or struggle to open. There is a great amount of force behind the torsion springs. Repairs should be handled by a professional.
  • Broken Tension Springs or Cables- The tension springs and cables are responsible for the safely, controlled closing of your garage door. If a tension spring breaks, you will notice that your door closes or slams shut rather quickly. If ignored, your cables will be the next to go. This can be quite dangerous and lead to potential injury if not properly addressed.
  • Dead Transmitter Batteries- More often than not, when your remote in your car fails to open or close your garage door, the batteries are dead. Make sure to properly insert new batteries into the transmitter.
  • Misaligned Tracks- If gaps between the rollers and rail are noticeable, or there are dents in the rails themselves, there could be a serious problem. If your garage door isn't moving at all, the tracks may need to be realigned.
  • Garage Door Hinges- Rusty or broken hinges can halt a doors function. They may need to be oiled or replaced.
