Having a good garage door that works as intended, without those horrible sounds, delivers peace of mind. Whether it’s automated or you have to open it manually, you shouldn’t have to deal with problems on a regular basis. Over time, there will be issues that come from wear and tear. For instance, you may hear a deep, beast of a sound during opening and closing. When you hear a louder-than-normal sound coming out of your garage door or garage door opener, it’s time to call us to inspect it and see what’s going on.
The Cause of the Noise
First and foremost, there are several problems that could very well cause these horrible sounds. A garage door has a lot of parts to consider. Think of gears, and rotating wires, metal bars, and more. There is no such thing as a silent door opening. If you hear something loud, it could be damage to the gears. Since the components of doors are usually metal, chances are chains, screws, and bars are being pulled or grinded down as the door pulls and releases leverage. Finding the cause and whether or not things don’t sound right is crucial to figuring out what is truly wrong with the door.
The Temporary Fix
If you hear a loud noise, you can get things moving a bit easier with some lubricant. This is only for things that aren’t serious. If you spray some lubricant on the gears and the chain that is opening the garage door that should suffice for noises that are due to moving parts not gliding smoothly. However, if after you’ve done this, the noise is still very loud, something is wrong. Damaged doors, bolts, screws, chains, and more could cause problems. In most cases this is a simple issue.
Repairing a garage door doesn’t always take a professional. But if it sounds like a monster coming out of your garage when you open and close doors, call us. It takes a bit of expertise to figure out the cause of the problem. Once that’s isolated, the rest is generally easy.
