Ronkonkoma Garage Door Repairs

On average, homeowners of Ronkonkoma, New York open and close their garage doors over 1500 times a year. That's a lot of use and a lot of wear and tear. It's probably not even something that people think of very often. Your garage door is the largest moving part of your home. It's an asset that stores our valuables, vehicles and is more often than not, the primary entry and exit point of our homes. Annual tune ups and inspections are important elements of keeping garage doors functioning properly and lasting longer. They can also prevent future, potentially costly repairs and replacements. Small issues can easily turn into large ones if not tackled at the start.

Common Garage Door Issues

Abnormal and irritating noises

Loud squeaking and screeching is a common issue that usually occurs when the moving parts of your garage such as the chains, pulleys, tracks, roller brackets, and other hardware need lubrication. Lubricating these components of your garage should be done every few months.

Damaged weather sealants

Weather sealants help keep elements such as rain, snow, cold, dirt, noise and pests from entering your garage. Over time, it can crack, or break. Weather sealants can be easily replaced and purchased at your local hardware store.

Cracks in doors

Cracks are common, especially in traditional wooden doors. Use a waterproof filler or sealant to fill them in and prevent them from worsening.

Door wont stay closed

Photo eye sensors are a safety reverse feature in your garage doors system. They help prevent entrapment by re-opening a garage when there is an obstruction in the way. If your garage door keeps opening when your close it, the photo-eye sensors could be dirty, or debris could be blocking its view. Use an all purpose cleaner to keep the photo-eye clean. If this is not the issue, it could be misaligned. Measure from the ground up to the center of each of the photo-eyes on both sides of your garage and make sure that they are evenly aligned.


Small gaps may occur between your garage door and the ground. If this occurs, secure pipe insulation to the part of the door that doesn't properly seal.


Rust can quickly become an unpleasant eye sore. Clean the rusted area with dish soap, then use a cloth soaked in vinegar to rub the rust.

Broken remote

More often then not when a garage door remote stops working, it's time to check the batteries. Replace dead batteries and make sure they are inserted correctly. If your garage door remote still doesn't work, you may need to refer to your manual.

Calling the Professionals

It's certainly convenient to be able to take care of garage door issues without the help of a professional. There are circumstances though when it's necessary to get help from trained technicians. When it comes to your garage door's tension cables, it's never recommended to try to handle them yourself without the proper training or understanding.
