Simple Garage Door Repairs or Full Replacement

As an Ohio resident, you know winter can be the worst time for your garage doors to stop working. Action Door, located in Cleveland, Ohio and the nearby areas in Northeast Ohio are the experts in how to prioritize your garage door repairs before the winter months.

Before the cold winter weather hits, many of us begin to look at our garage door repairs. It’s no fun when your garage door bites the dust. I mean, who likes getting out of their car to open and close a garage door? No one does.

Like everything else, you’ll know when to repair your garage door, because it will start making noises or acting up. Before giving someone a call, here’s how you can access the problem for yourself.

  • Do your rollers and tracks need cleaned?

Give all rollers, hinges, tracks and latches a good brushing and add some lubricant. Wipe everything clean and then add some oil. If they still aren’t working, try adding kerosene. You can remove the rust with steel wool.

You can check this by looking along the sides of the door. If it’s jamming, consider replacing it. If it’s a wooden garage door, make sure it’s properly sealed.

A noisy garage door is annoying for someone who sleeps above or next to it. Lucky for those with this problem, it’s an easy garage door repair by merely replacing a few parts. This problem is typically caused by old, metal rollers that make a lot of noise.

Before deciding to buy a new garage door, consider if you only need to replace your opener or if it simply needs serviced. You’ll know if the opener needs replaced if it does any of the following:

        • Doesn’t operate with either the remote or the wall switch
        • Opens and motor won’t stop
        • Won’t open or close with a remote
        • Before hitting the floor, the door reverses

Don’t wait for your garage door to stop working properly before taking action. It is important to do routine garage door maintenance and fix any problems as they come up. If you wait for the situation to become worse, you could cause a safety problem. Poorly adjusted garage doors or poorly installed openers can apply deadly force when the door closes. Therefore, it could cause you or a loved one to get a serious injury.
