Is It Time To Repair Or Replace Your Garage Doors?

by Bessie Beck

Although there are a number of home improvements that you can carry out on your own, you should note that not everything that goes wrong in your residence could be fixed easily via some tinkering. One of the features in your house that should be exclusively handled by professionals is your garage doors. Keep in mind that these doors are heavy, so one wrong move could mean them crashing down on you. Secondly, any amateur repairs can cause further harm to the doors, and this can translate into irreparable damage. This article highlights some of the common signs that should prompt you to seek professional garage doors repairs or replacement.

Decreased speed

When your garage doors are freshly installed, they will open and close at a reasonable speed. With time, however, this speed will gradually decrease. The decrease in speed can be attributed to the weight of the doors. Since the garage doors are so heavy, they progressively weaken the motor. As a result, the motor eventually loses a significant amount of power, and your garage doors will open and shut at an incredibly slow pace. If you notice this problem with your garage doors, it is imperative to call a garage door motor repair company so that they can repair or replace the motor for you.

Increased noise

Although garage doors are not particularly inaudible, they should not be deafeningly loud either. The moment your garage doors start to sound more noisy than usual, it should alert you to a compromised component. When the increased noise is characterised by grinding or banging sound, it usually indicates that there is friction between the garage door components. Conversely, when the noise is being emitted is more of a squeaking sound, it could mean that your garage doors components are in dire need of lubrication. Irrespective of the cause, it is prudent to hire a garage door technician to check out the cause and provide your doors with a suitable remedy.

Antiquated appearance

Despite being designed to last for several years, the appearance of garage doors can deteriorate with time. If your garage doors are in direct exposure to Australia's changing climatic conditions such as extreme heat to freezing chill, then the changing temperatures could cause the materials of the garage doors to warp. Another feature on your garage doors to inspect is the weathering seal. The weathering seal of your garage doors is also a good indicator of impeding repair, and the more it has degraded, the higher the chance that your garage is not protected from the fluctuating temperatures changes. Therefore, if you notice any structural impairments to your garage doors, that is a good sign of it being time to repair or replace them.
