How to Fix Your Noisy Garage Door?

Noise in garage doors can occur by the pulleys,cables, hinges and springs that make the counterbalance system work. From loose hardware to squeaky parts that need to be lubricated, there is a wide range of issues that may happen with your overhead door. However, in this post, we will talk about how to fix your noisy garage door.

Check, tighten, and lubricate each part of the opening system:

With the help of a socket wrench or an impact driver you can tighten the nuts on the track system, and also tighten the opener chain.Lubrication is another essential aspect; you can lubricate the opener travel bracket and all the hinges, active coils on springs, pivot points, and end plate bearings and rollers. Tightening and lubricating must be conducted on a regular basis– every 3 to 6 months.

Rather than using lubricants such as oil or grease, you must employ a specialized overhead door lubricant which oils all the components without enticing dirt or unnecessary remains. Worn out rollers are the most common reason for noisy garage doors, but the good news is that it can be fixed with routine lubrication. When the roller bearings shut, replacement by a professional garage door technician is recommended.

Type of opener & door balance:

You also need to understand which kind of garage door opener you have – a chain, screw, or belt drive. To check the balance of the garage door, pull the emergency release that opens and closes the door manually, and lift the door halfway prior to releasing it. If the system is not balanced properly the door may fall, however a firm overhead door would stay halfway open without going up or down.

Types of noises:    

Recognize the kinds of sounds your garage door can produce can be really vital in determining what may cause it. For example, a deafening ticking sound may specify the rollers or the bearing within the pulley have worn out. A rasping sound generally the cause of the coils in the overhead door springs becoming bent and knocking against one another.

Professional help:

Even though some noises and other issues you encounter with your overhead door have simple solutions that can be done without professional aid, sometimes that is not the case. When dealing with torsion springs and bearing, it is the time to call a professional garage door technician to replace (if it has RED nuts and bolts on it DO NOT remove). If hinges on the garage door producing a squealing sound, it may just have to be lubricated; however, if it produces a crushing sound, it most likely needs replacement and you should a call a professional garage door technician.

Every step of the way was a headache with this company. The technician was rude throughout the different transactions and was not respectful of other people's time. Once he got the work done, him and his company proceeded to harass me for payment every single day and multiple times a day until I got fed up and paid for it within two days of service. Normally, companies provide a week of time to allow customers to pay for their bill, but this company prefers to harass its customers until they get fed up with them. No courtesy or consideration whatsoever. This was definitely NOT a friendly and respectful company. Please avoid them.read more
