A noisy garage door is never a good sign. Rumbling or grating noises could spell something wrong with your door’s torsion springs, while popping sounds may mean your door’s sections aren’t aligning properly. Grinding noises could indicate your garage door is off its tracks. Squeaking noises could mean some parts have come loose or need lubrication. Whatever noises your garage door is making, it’s trying to tell you something is wrong. Call our garage door professionals to diagnose the issue before it gets worse. It could also be time for a garage door tune-up. Count on us for garage door maintenance annually to avoid costly emergency repairs.
The cause of a garage door that won’t open or close could be anything from worn or broken cables or torsion springs to a misalignment of the laser sensors or a stripped gear inside your opener. Garage door opener repair could be as simple as checking the outlet supplying power to your electric opener, but it could also be something a lot more dangerous. Because your garage door is one of the largest moving objects on your property, we do not recommend attempting to fix it yourself. Always rely on a qualified expert to troubleshoot the issue with your garage door or opener for you safely and accurately. Newer garage doors have laser sensors. Anything obstructing the door from closing could cause a malfunction, causing your door to reverse immediately. We may be able to realign your garage door.
Some homeowners’ insurance policies will cover certain garage door damages, especially if caused by severe weather or vandalism. However, every policy is different. You’ll need to check with your insurance provider for more details about your specific coverage. You might be surprised to discover some things you thought were covered are not and vice versa. Policies often contain tricky language.
If your garage door opener isn’t working, check your remote and power source. If it is safe to do so, you may also inspect the sensors, tracks, rollers, or trolley. You may check your manual for troubleshooting tips from the manufacturer. In many cases, you may also be able to close your garage door manually.
We would not recommend attempting a garage door spring repair on your own unless you have mechanical experience. Garage door spring systems can be complex and even dangerous to repair. One false move, and you could be injured unnecessarily when a 300-pound garage door comes crashing down unexpectedly. It’s usually best to leave garage door repairs to seasoned experts who know what they are doing to avoid further damage or severe injury.
Sometimes it’s possible to replace only the damaged section of your garage door instead of the entire door. It really depends on the location and extent of the damage. H&H Garage Doors’ experienced repair team would be happy to inspect your damaged garage door and make expert recommendations to ensure the best solution. You can rely on us to steer you in the most economical direction.
Many newer models of garage door openers can be controlled using your smartphone or tablet by downloading the appropriate app from the manufacturer. H&H Garage Doors works with many of the best garage door opener manufacturers in the industry, including LiftMaster, Genie, Sears, Craftsman, Stanley, and Chamberlain. Check out our best-selling models that come equipped with various features.
