As a homeowner, you shoulder the responsibility of caring for your property. The hope is that nothing will leak, stop working or show its age. Everything, however, becomes worn and eventually requires repair. This reality includes the garage door. Garage door repair is something that every homeowner will eventually need.
Garage Door Spring Repair
If you have noticed that the garage door only opens six inches, the top of the door is bent or the door falls quickly as it closes, the springs may be broken. Loud bangs, the emergency rope failing or visible hanging cables are other warnings. When a garage door has broken springs, they can easily be repaired. In the extreme scenarios, they require replacement.
Garage Door Openers
If your garage door operates on automatic power, it will make sounds when it opens and closes. There is such a thing as too loud, though. Over time, your ear has become accustomed to those sounds, so if you believe they have changed, it may be a sign the garage door opener requires repair. If it requires a simple tune-up, it can be completed. Proper maintenance is the best way to prevent a full system replacement before it is necessary.
Garage Door Maintenance
