If your home or business has a garage door, chances are you’ve encountered at least one of the common problems that can occur with its operation. From broken springs, cables, damaged panels, and malfunctioning safety sensors, it’s important to be aware of these issues and the solutions to address them.

Broken Springs and Cables

One of the most common problems with garage doors we hear of is broken springs and cables. If you’ve ever heard a loud bang or clang after opening or closing your garage door, chances are that one of the springs or cables has snapped.This can cause your garage door to become stuck in the open or closed position, and is a repair that should be handled immediately by a professional garage door repair company. To prevent the risk of injury, it is important to not attempt to replace the cables or springs on your own.

Garage Door Openers

Having to repair the garage door’s opener can also be a common problem. If the opener is not functioning correctly, it may be due to a number of factors. It could be a problem with the remote, the wiring, or the motor itself. In any case, it’s important to have it inspected and repaired by a professional to ensure that your garage door is functioning properly. 

Damaged Garage Door Panels

Another issue that we commonly address is damage to the garage door panels. If the panels on your garage door are dented, cracked, or otherwise damaged, it’s important to have them replaced as soon as possible. Damaged panels can compromise the structural integrity of your garage door, leaving it vulnerable to further damage.

Damaged Weather Stripping

Damage to the weather stripping another common problem. Weather stripping is used to keep out rain, snow, and other elements that can damage the interior of your garage. If the weather stripping is damaged, it’s important to have it replaced as soon as possible. This is especially important when considering the potential impact it has on your home’s heating and cooling costs, especially in Ontario and B.C.

Broken Hinges and Rollers

Broken hinges and rollers are another issue that our customers might experience. If the garage door isn’t closing properly, it could very well be due to a problem with one of the hinges or rollers. Our garage door repair professionals can do a thorough evaluation of the hinges and rollers and replace or repair them at a moment’s notice if necessary.

Safety Sensors

Finally, malfunctioning safety sensors are another prominent issue that we address. Safety sensors detect when something is blocking the path of the garage door, ensuring that it doesn’t close on top of any objects. If your safety sensors are malfunctioning, it’s important to have them inspected and repaired as soon as possible to avoid any potential damage to your property and, most importantly,  potential harm to you or your loved ones. 

These are just a few of the common garage door problems that may be experienced. From spring & cable repair to opener repair and garage door chain repair, it’s important to be aware of these issues and the solutions for addressing them. If you’re experiencing any of these problems, it’s best to contact a professional garage door repair company for assistance.
