How do I quiet a noisy garage door?

A noisy garage door can be bothersome, but there are steps you can take to reduce the noise. First, inspect and lubricate all moving parts, such as rollers, hinges, and springs, using a silicone-based lubricant. Tighten any loose hardware that may be causing vibrations. Additionally, consider installing nylon rollers, as they tend to operate more quietly than metal ones. If the noise persists, it's best to have a technician inspect your garage door to identify any underlying issues that may need attention.

What is included in a standard garage door maintenance check?

During a standard garage door maintenance check, our technicians conduct a thorough inspection of various components to ensure optimal performance and safety. This includes checking and adjusting the tension of the garage door springs, lubricating all moving parts, inspecting and aligning the tracks, testing the safety sensors, examining the cables and rollers for wear, and tightening any loose hardware. Our technicians also perform a balance test to ensure the door opens and closes smoothly. If any issues or potential concerns are detected, our technicians will discuss them with you and provide recommendations for necessary repairs or adjustments. Regular maintenance helps extend the lifespan of your garage door and reduces the risk of unexpected breakdowns.

When should I replace my garage door opener?

Several signs suggest it's time to replace your garage door opener. If your opener is over 10-15 years old and experiencing frequent breakdowns, it's likely reaching the end of its lifespan. Other indications include unusual grinding or banging noises during operation, slow response times, or if it lacks the latest safety features. Upgrading to a new, more efficient and technologically advanced opener can provide added convenience, security, and peace of mind. Our technicians can help you choose the right replacement and ensure a seamless installation process.

How do I know if my garage door sensor is out of alignment?

When your garage door sensor is out of alignment, you may notice that the door doesn't close properly, or it immediately reverses after attempting to close.
