We have experienced every kind of broken garage door that you could imagine over the years, but there are are a few common problems that we see often:
Garage Door is Making Loud Noises When Opening or Closing
Is your garage door grinding or squeaking when it opens or closes? As garage doors get older, they can develop noise problems primarily from dirt and dust getting onto the tracks and interfering with the wheels. Typically, a thorough cleaning of the wheels and tracks is enough to stop grinding from occurring, but you may also need to lubricate the system to make sure it operates smoothly.
If cleaning and lubricating doesn’t work, you may have a more serious issue like damaged tracks or a problem with the operator. If this is the case, call us today and we can help get your garage door “back on track.” Our technicians have all of the equipment and experience needed to get your garage door repaired quickly.
Garage Door Won’t Open or Close / Garage Door Is Stuck
Another common garage door problem that we see is garage doors getting stuck in the open or closed position. In order to diagnose the problem, the first thing you will want to check is to see if something is obstructing the sensors on the garage door. Sometimes a garbage can or broom will get bumped in front of the sensor which will keep the door from opening or closing. Next, check to make sure the wheel tracks are not blocked, bent, or broken. If none of these things help to get your garage door moving again, you might have a broken cable or operator. If this is the case, you will need to call a professional to repair or replace the broken parts. If you can’t get your garage door moving again, give us a call — we are available 24/7 in the Austin area!
Garage Door Closes Too Quickly
If your garage door falls rather than closes at a controlled rate, chances are you have a broken cable or a broken spring. There is not much you can do to fix this problem yourself, as it will probably require a special part be replaced or fixed. If your garage door is closing too quickly make sure to give us a call right away — the last thing you want is to have a family member get injured or a vehicle get damaged.
