The garage door is the most massive moving object of your home, and it is usually in constant use. Today we want to write about how to identify common garage door issues and when it is a good time for replacing your garage door.
Common Garage Door Issues
Door Makes Grinding Noises
A garage door has many different moving parts, and when you hear a grinding noise, something is going on. A grinding noise could mean something simple like parts that need to be lubricated, to other issues like worn parts, or squeaky sections.
Door Won’t Open All the Way
If your garage door won’t open all the way, it is most likely that the springs are broken and need replacing.
Door Closes and Then Opens
If your garage door closes and then immediately opens, it means that there could be an issue with the photo-eye alignment.
Door Opener is Unresponsive
When the garage door opener becomes unresponsive, it could be that the photo-eyes are not working.
Door Closes But Doesn’t Seal Completely at the Bottom
If your garage door doesn’t seal when closed, it means that the weatherstripping needs replaced.
