Squeaking Garage Door Troubleshooting Tips
If you are in the mood to repair your noisy garage door yourself, here are some helpful tips when doing so. First off, know what you are doing. Garage doors are very dangerous and can take your life. If you are uncertain about repairing it yourself, call a professional technician at Rocky Mountain Garage Door Service, as we have many years of experience and know what we are doing.
Regular maintenance of your garage door helps keep it operating smoothly. It is probably the easiest and cheapest thing you can do for your garage door to keep it reliable for years to come.
The first thing to look for is what type of garage door opener you have. If you have a chain drive, often the most popular and affordable, think back to the last time you lubricated it. Chain drive garage door openers require a bit more attention than screw drive or belt drive openers. Chain drive openers need to be lubricated on a bi-annual basis. Without proper lubrication of your garage door, your door is bound to be the noisiest one on the block!
If you have recently lubricated your garage door, perhaps check to see if it is properly balanced. This is where a professional technician can be helpful. To check if your door is balanced, pull the emergency release cord on your garage door. Proceed to raise and lower it manually. Raise the door partway. If your door is stable, it won’t move much. If it appears unbalanced, it will start to fall. Contact us if your door appears to be unstable as we know just how to fix it!
A final check you can do to see why you have such a loud garage door is to make sure that none of the rollers, springs, or hinges are worn out. These get used every time you open and close your door so the chances of them wearing down over time are high. If it appears that a spring, hinge, or roller is broken or out of place, call us and we can come out and repair it or replace it for you.
