Garage doors have a very simple functionality. They roll up and down until there comes a time when you are suddenly faced with one that just wouldn’t work. It’s highly frustrating but worst of all, it could affect your activities for the day knowing your home is vulnerable with a faulty garage door. The great news is that they make for very simple repairs and Master Lift offers a highly reliable garage door repair service.
How to Repair a Garage Door
Most of the time, when a garage door starts malfunctioning, it’s a sign that you need to do some necessary maintenance procedures. So, before you panic, you can try a few simple repairs.
You need to check on the garage door rollers and tracks. If you have not touched them in a while, now is a good time to give them a good brushing and apply some lubricant after.
If it’s a noisy garage door, you might need to replace some parts. Garage doors could also freeze during the winter and instead of hitting the garage door button again and again, causing bigger problems, you could use a hair dryer to melt the ice that’s been stuck between the door and the floor.
You will need to check the metal tracks inside and see if they are loose. Sometimes, you just need to tighten the bolts or put the screws back in the brackets. Look for dents and flat spots, and replace the tracks when necessary. You should also look for loose hardware, check the plates on swing-up doors, or the hinges on roll up doors.
These are just some of the basic troubleshooting steps that you can do in case of a garage door malfunction.
