Know What’s Wrong with your Garage Door

Your garage door is the most important element of your house, and the last thing you wish to do is come back to a lovely house only to find your overhead door not functioning properly. As a home-owner you should have knowledge about the various parts of the garage door and what could go wrong with them.

Door and Sections:

The sections of the garage door can be damaged or dented, especially when you drive your car accidentally into a closed door.

Hinges:

The hinges connect the sections of the overhead door and allow it to flex as it moves. These hinges need regular lubrication and can cause issues if cracked or broken.

Sensors:

Safety sensors are positioned on both sides of the garage door about 6 inches off the floor, and they correspond with the opener. One sensor releases a laser whereas other receives it. If something obstructs the line of the laser, then it cannot reach the receiving sensor, so the overhead door won’t close. Sensor Replacement

If your garage door only goes down a few inches before rising back up, then the sensors maybe obstructed or misaligned.

Tracks:

The tracks on both sides of your garage door leading up to the garage roof caters as a guide for the door. Those tracksmust bein a good shapeto run without issues. Ensure you keep them free from leaves and brooms or other items being stored in your garage.

If torsion spring snaps or starts making noises, do not try to repair or tune it on your own.

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
