Some things just can’t be fixed by yourself. If your garage door is not working properly, then it’s time for professional help! And while you might want to save some money by trying out repairs yourself in an effort not to spend too much on labor or materials; certain garage door services require special tools and training which only a certified technician will have access to.
If you’re not sure whether to do it yourself or call in a pro, read this list of symptoms and solutions below.
Garage Door Not Closing All The Way
Some people have reported that their garage door would not close all of the ways and if this happens, it could be because there is an issue with one or more photo eyes on your particular model. The safety features use infrared beams so they can prevent any objects from getting caught in its path!
When the photo eyes are misaligned or blocked, your garage door will stop closing before it reaches the floor and reverses open. The light in your opener blinks on/off rapidly when this happens.
A Noisy Garage Door
The common reasons for Noisy garage doors are wear and tear on the rollers, loose hardware, or metal parts that need to be lubricated.
These simple repairs will help you get back on track.
A Dirty Garage Door
The exterior of your garage door is the first thing people see when they approach or leave neighboring homes. Cleaning it regularly will improve their impression and increase its lifespan, which in turn saves you money!
Leave Broken Springs To The Professional
Homeowners sometimes think they can handle their garage door service, but this is one repair that you should never try to do yourself. Always call a professional for help!
The first clue that you have a broken garage door spring is often the sound of a loud bang coming from your home’s entryway. The second sign might be pieces falling off or popping as they stretch out and snap back into place.
The garage door springs are wound under high tension that can break with great force. When they do, the spring unwinds quickly and produces loud noises due to coils spinning on a shaft.
