Common Garage Door Problems

  • Broken Garage Rails

One of the common problems that may occur with garage doors is a broken garage rail. The garage rail is located on the left side and right side of the garage doors and are critical in helping the garage door function well. Some problems that may arise from broken garage rails include a garage door that will not open or close, or a garage door that is very noisy when it is in operation. In such cases, it would be best to seek the help of professionals to help with the repair of your broken garage rails.

Broken Garage Springs

Are your garage springs faulty? Garage springs typically help to raise and lower the garage door. When the door is lowered, tension will increase in the spring. When the door is raised, the tension will be released, which helps to lift the door. They are essential for the smooth opening and closing of the garage doors. If your garage springs are broken, it is important to replace them as quickly as possible.

  • Broken Garage Openers

Garage openers are essentially the operator of the garage door, which helps to either open or close a garage door through the switches on the wall of a garage. They are a motorized device and help to ensure that there is nothing in the way when the door is closing. As garage openers play a key role in the opening and closing of a garage, it is difficult for the garage to function with a broken garage opener. If your garage opener is broken, you should find a reliable service provider to help you install a new one or repair the current one.

Sensors on the garage door may fail due to a wide variety of reasons, but is usually due to wire damage, like if the wires were chewed or broken. If water from the rain comes into contact with the wire, it could also have led to a short circuit, resulting in a malfunction. If wire damage is present, then the sensor of the garage door should be replaced to a new one.
