All garage doors require regular maintenance as there are a range of problems that can occur with all types of garage doors. Most people think that it is okay to leave their garage door and it should just continue to work as it did when it was first installed, but unfortunately that’s not the case.

Garage doors need to be serviced and lubricated at least every 12 months, more frequently depending on the amount of use, weight of door, if it is a custom door or a main entry door. Garage door motors rely heavily on a well maintained garage door for smooth operation. Maintaining and servicing your garage door and opener at manufacturer recommended intervals is always the best way to reduce the chance of repairs.

Most homeowners don’t even worry about their garage doors unless something goes wrong. It may start with a creaking or groaning that keeps getting louder or you may notice your garage door to start opening and closing slowly.

The reality is that all these problems can be avoided or prevented with regular maintenance. However, most homeowners don’t even consider it since everything is working fine.

So, when you notice any of these signs contact J&S Garage Door Services and we will figure out what is happening with your garage door.

1. Noisy Operation

When you start noticing that your garage door is making loud noises, you need to act fast. This may be a sign that a part is broken or something is in need of lubrication and may require servicing.

2. The Garage Door Reverses Before It Closes

If your garage door reverses before it completes the close cycle, the opener could be sensing an obstruction. 

If there is no physical obstructions, it will need a service to reset and reconfigure the motor.

3. Faulty Or Worn-Out Garage Door Opener

When you press the button to open or close the garage and it doesn’t work, It can point to a problem with your opener.

Give J&S Garage Door Services a call to service the opener, in some cases it may be safer and more reliable to replace the motor 

4. Broken Torsion Springs

Whenever you open or close your garage door, you are using springs. So, since they are always under pressure, it is natural that they need to be replaced from time to time. These springs can only be used for a certain number of open and close cycles and eventually will need to be replaced.

If you happen to be at home when these break, you may hear a loud bang. Garage doors can be quite heavy, but it is these heavy-duty springs that do most of the heavy lifting. So, whenever you notice that your motor struggles to open the garage door or when you have a manual garage door you notice that you need to push harder to open it, this may mean that you need to replace the springs.

5. Damaged Garage Door

Damage to your Garage door can be caused due to vehicle collision or due to storm or hail impact. Apart from taking away the aesthetic appeal of your property, it can also become an easy target for burglars as your security is compromised and can unsafe to operate.

A dented door may put more strain on the motor, springs and the tracks leading to further costs.

Depending on the type of door and the degree of the damage, either a panel may need to be replaced or the worst case may need the entire door to be replaced.

Regardless of the above issues, you are best to contact a Garage Door Company who can diagnose and fix these issues promptly.

***We at J&S Garage Door Services advise everyone to not attempt to service or repair your garage door yourself. Garage doors are very heavy and can cause serious injuries (including death) if not repaired by a garage door professional.***
