Garage doors always need maintenance; they always go up and down a dozen a day, and doing so always makes wear and tear faster.
One of the reasons why garage doors are also getting decommissioned earlier is because people tend to nevermind that their doors aren’t closing at the same time on both sides.
That would mean that the springs or cables are either stuck together too tightly making the garage doors uneven.
Always check up on it every now and then, you don’t want to have a significant repair underway of your 1-year-old garage door right?
What are the signs that you need your doors replaced?
There are a plethora of reasons as to why your garage doors will need adjustments or replacements.
The most obvious reason would be when your garage door is already old.
Having it get stuck more than once in a month is more than a problem that you would be willing to bear for the rest of your life because you don’t want to spend more on keeping your garage doors right.
The disadvantages of having a malfunctioning garage door
It’s already glaringly obvious what would happen without a good garage door.
A door like that is a considerable safety hazard, especially doors that didn’t even get any track adjustment even once in their entire lives.
Not only will it not open correctly, but it will also strain the springs and cables, and you will end up paying more for the repair.
And having that kind of issue always will put a strain on your finances.
How to take care of your garage doors?
Taking care of garage doors are very simple.
All you need to do is to clean them and use lubricants on the hinges and rollers as they tend to always get stuck in the long run because of friction.
There are many cases where the rollers continuously break down, and when you check up on them, what you only see is a sorry little roller that does not have much to live.
Why? Because it has almost been grounded into dust because of neglect.
Always check up on the rollers and make sure that your doors are well adjusted.
If you will keep on experiencing one of these issues, feel free to contact Fixadoor for a quick fix or a track adjustment.
And If push comes to shove and the rollers are really in bad condition, we can always have a track replacement, instead of getting a whole new garage door system.
It would be financially better for you to have small replacements instead.
Garage Door Repairs tips, recommendations and frequently asked questions
Why does my garage door opener light bulb keep dying?
First, check for any shaking of the garage door during operation. Usually, excessive vibration can cause the filament in your opener's bulb to prematurely expire.
One garage spring broke. I have 2, should I replace both?
Garage door springs should ALWAYS be replaced as a set. The reason is once one spring breaks, the other one is probably not far behind, especially considering how springs weaken over time. Combining a new spring with an older one will likely cause an imbalance in your garage door's operation. If you own 2 separate garage doors and only one spring has broken, it's strongly recommended to replace the springs on each door if their springs are around the same age. Depending on your door's position, when a spring breaks it can cause serious injury as well as damage your opener.
Does my garage door require maintenance?
Yes. How often you will require garage door maintenance all depends on how much the door is being used. Generally, we perform the following to ensure your garage door is working properly and tuned up: We do a visual inspection of all the moving parts. We ensure the tracks; rollers and hinges are clean and lubricated properly. We make sure all nuts and bolts are tight and clean. We manually run the operator and door through a cycle to make sure it is running quietly and smoothly. Also, We check the door balance at various opening heights. If the garage door passes all these test, congratulations, you do not need a tune-up.
Can I use the old tracks for a new garage door?
Using old garage door tracks with a new garage door is quite dangerous.
