Garage doors can be a highly effective way to update the aesthetics of your home, while providing protection for your garage contents. There are three main types of garage doors available.
- A roller garage door: For this type of garage door, the entire door rolls around a ‘barrel’ while opening and the garage door slides into the tracks located on the garage’s ceiling.
- The sectional garage door:This type of door includes several panels or sections with hinges positioned between the panels. Both the sectional and roller designs allow for a car to be parked in front of the door because the door opens vertically instead of swinging open during opening like the tilt-style door.
- Tilt garage door: With a tilt garage door, the entire door opens as a single unit, and it appears to ‘swing’ completely open.
Regardless of which type of garage door you have, below are some signs that it may be time for routine maintenance by a local garage door technician or for a repair if you have a broken garage door.
In general, garage doors should fully open in a few seconds, depending on the type of door. If you notice that your garage door is taking longer than usual to open or close or that it is struggling, it may be time for a repair or replacement.
Contact our local garage door technician today to check the functioning of your door and to avoid further reductions in the performance of your garage door.
More Frequent Repairs
A typical garage door is used thousands of times over its lifetime. Therefore, routine garage door maintenance should be done at a minimum of annually and should include inspecting and lubricating parts including the track and making sure seals along the door’s edges are intact.
For sectional garage doors, it’s important to also make sure all panels and sections are securely affixed. Regular maintenance is important to ensure the functionality and lifespan of your garage door.
If you find that your garage door requires maintenance more frequently, this may be a sign that you may need an inspection by a professional garage door technician or a complete replacement.
Depending on your location, garage doors can be exposed to UV rays, wind, and moisture throughout the year which can overtime, damage your door. In addition, poor weatherproofing and a lack of insulation can also negatively impact your electricity bill.
If weather conditions have negatively affected your garage door, it may be time for garage door inspection or repair; don’t hesitate to call a garage door technician in your area.
Garage Door Damage
Garage doors can become damaged through accidents or a lack of routine maintenance. Significant damage can result in dents, scratches, and scuffs which can not only affect the curb appeal of your home, but increase liability and damage inside your garage if the door does not open properly.
In addition, having a faulty garage door opener can lead to security risks including burglary. Installing a new garage door can be expensive; but so can the potential losses of a faulty garage door.
