Garage Door Repair: What You Need to Know

garage door repair

Garage doors are an essential part of your home. When you have a garage door that doesn’t work, getting around your home and taking care of business can be a hassle. Whether you need a new garage door opener or just want to replace the door itself, we’re here to help you find the best option for your needs!

It’s a common problem that garage doors can be difficult to open, especially if they are old or have been damaged. The springs that lift the door may need replacing, or there could be other issues with the hardware or tracks. If you want to learn how to fix your garage door yourself, you’ll need basic tools and materials such as a screwdriver and pliers (and perhaps some extra parts). However, garage door repair can be expensive if you hire professionals but dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing.

If you decide not to attempt DIY repairs at home yourself, then it is best not to try them out at all!

Broken garage door springs

Garage door springs are the most common cause for garage doors to come off their tracks. They are usually made of steel and have a nylon coating, which makes them strong but flexible. When there’s a problem with the spring or cables attached, you may hear loud noises as the garage door opens or closes. When your motor struggles to lift your heavy garage door when it’s cold outside, there could be some serious problems happening inside your system.

The symptoms of a broken spring can vary depending on what kind of failure has occurred:

  • Broken cable – A snapped cable will cause one end of your torsion spring (which is attached to an overhead drum) to rotate freely while the other end remains stationary at its anchor point on top of your garage door track; this will prevent you from opening or closing any further than halfway up into place!
  • Broken torsion spring – This type of failure occurs when all coils within a single section break apart due to metal fatigue. If this happens, only half of your entire system will work properly because only one side can open or close at any given time.
  • Torsion rod broken off its bracket – In this case, one end piece will spin freely around another stationary piece which holds together both sides together as well as is responsible for lifting/lowering operations too. You’ll notice signs such as creaking sounds coming from somewhere within between these two points whenever either side tries moving around (because they’re no longer connected).
    Noisy and squeaky doors

If you have a squeaky garage door, there are plenty of ways to fix it. One of the most common causes of a squeaky door is the springs. The coils lift up and down as your garage door opens and closes. Squeaking can also be caused by unbalanced tracks or damaged rollers or hinges (though this is less common).
If your garage door is making noise that seems dangerous or worrisome, don’t hesitate to call a professional as soon as possible! Some serious safety issues could arise from having a noisy or broken garage door right now. Not only do you run the risk of getting hurt when trying to use it yourself, but if someone else hears those noises while they’re trying to sleep at night, they might get angry enough at being woken up that they’ll call 911 on you for no reason! That would be very upsetting!
