Noisy garage doors can be caused by any of the many springs, pulleys and cables that make the opening system work. A noisy garage door if not addressed quickly can eventually become a larger problem eventually requiring garage door replacement. As garage door installation experts in Lino Lakes, we would like to offer some of the reasons your garage door could be making noise as well as how to keep your garage door working well all summer.
You can generally expect a garage door to last you for a decade or two after you have a new one installed. But, once your garage door starts to act up, it may not be long before you require garage door installation. Be sure you inspect your garage door on a regular basis. About once a week or so, inspect the garage door itself as well as the mechanisms to ensure everything is working as it should. If you notice a part that is broken, frayed or worn through, call our garage door company for assistance. Many parts of a garage door, especially the springs, should only be repaired or replaced by a trained professional.
Pinpoint the Type of Noise
By identifying the type of noise your garage door is making, you can determine what may be causing it. For example, a loud ticking sound could mean it’s the rollers or a grating noise could mean it’s the coils. The well-trained ear of an expert garage door installation specialist can listen to your garage door and help pinpoint the problem.
Check, Tighten, Inspect
When you hear strange noises coming from your garage door, start by checking, tightening and lubricating all parts of the opening system. Use a socket wrench to tighten the nuts on the track system as well as tighten the opener chain and lubricate the opener track, hinges, torsion bar bearings and springs. If none of these work or if you are uncomfortable performing any of these tasks then contact the garage door installation experts at Premium Garage Door Service for help.
It is important to make sure your garage door opens and closes as it should to ensure it lasts all summer. And, if your garage door is getting old and you would like to look into a new garage door installation to update your home, now is a great time of year to do it!
