We use our garage doors just about as much as we use any other door around the house if not more. Unlike most other doors around the house garage doors are large mechanical structures that require regular maintenance. You need to know when to call a garage door service to fix minor problems before they become major.

Common Issues With Garage Doors

The garage doors are usually opened and closed several times throughout the day. They are typically very sturdy and can handle the constant use for at least a short while. However, there are several common issues that can occur from time to time. If your garage door is not acting as it should there are a few different things that may be causing the issue. Check the rollers and tracks to make sure they are lubricated and clean. Also, check the hardware to make all of the garage door’s springs, screws, and bolts are tight as they can come loose with use. Make sure that you check the cables, pulleys, and springs as well. These things will wear out over time and make it difficult for your garage door to function properly.

Prevent Issues with Regular Garage Door Service

Most if not all of common garage door issues can be prevented or addressed before it’s too late with regular garage door maintenance and service. An unmaintained garage door may last around 10-15 years. A garage door that receives regular service and maintenance is capable of lasting 50 years or more. AN experienced garage door service company can assess your situation and provide a maintenance schedule based on your door’s type and condition. A professional company can also address any potential problems before they become a large issue and expense.
