Strongs Neck Garage Door Repairs

The function and longevity of your Strongs Neck garage door are important. The average homeowner opens and closes their garage door over 1500 times per year. That's a lot of use and its safe to say that the garage door is not only an asset, but quickly replacing the front door as the primary entrance and exit point of a home. Annual tune-ups and routine maintenance of your door are often forgotten about.

Actually, more often than not, people don’t usually even give their garage doors a second thought until something goes wrong. It's also not uncommon to ignore signs of malfunction until doors stop working completely. This can be an extremely regrettable and costly mistake. Being aware, and keeping up with maintenance will keep your door looking fresh and functioning properly for longer.

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 Strongs Neck garage door, such as the chains, pulleys, tracks, roller brackets, and other hardware need lubrication. Lubricating these components of your door should be done every few months.
  • Damaged weather sealants
    Weather sealants help keep 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 their 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.
  • Gaps
    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.
  • Rusting
    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 than 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.
