Knowing when it’s time to call a professional for residential garage door repair can help you save thousands of dollars on your overall repair bill. Our team at Beltway Doors has significant experience in garage door repair, and in this latest post, we’ll highlight a few of the signs that indicate your residential garage door requires repair.
Improper door movement
The movement of the garage door takes place using metal tracks. If the door falls out of alignment with the tracks or a piece of material enters the track, the door won’t move up and down as normal. This is an issue that requires immediate repair work from a specialist. Only a specialist can analyze the tracks and repair any broken components within the system.
Opener not working
When your garage door opener isn’t working properly, the issue is likely related to the batteries. Oftentimes simply replacing the batteries will lead to normal functionality. But sometimes the issue is related to the sensor within the garage door system. If you’ve tried replacing the batteries, and you’ve attempted to move all objects out of the way of the sensor, the sensor itself could be the issue. Ask the repair company to analyze the sensor’s performance and replace the unit if required.
You’ll likely know immediately when the torsion springs in your garage door are broken. The door won’t move properly and any attempt to move the door will lead to loud noises as the metal door has limited flexibility without its springs. Look for signs of damage to the springs or for springs that might have come free from the door during opening and closing. And then call your local residential garage door repair company for guidance.
It’s important that you don’t attempt to resolve issues with your garage door spring and with the tracks of the door alone. This may lead to serious injury and significant damage to your home.
