What are the Most Common Problems with Garage Doors?

Even the most well-built garage doors will eventually need some maintenance and repairs. If you’re currently having problems with your door, you can call Garage Doors Plus, LLC. Our experts can perform a garage door inspection to determine the problem. If you don’t know what’s wrong with the door, it’s likely one of the issues below. Let’s take a closer look.


1. Garage Door Opener

The garage door opener is hands down the number one problem that homeowners have with their garage doors. The main reason for this is they often purchase cheap openers that don’t last. When you hire us to install your new garage door, we recommend you invest in a quality garage door opener that has lots of features. You’re more likely to get your money’s worth, and they’ll work when you need them to.


2. Garage Door Tracks

For a garage door to slide up and down, it must be able to move on tracks that can support the door weight and maintain the stability of the entire door system. If a track comes loose or breaks, the door will not move. You’ll need to call a Garage Doors Plus, LLC technician to perform a garage door repair. In most cases, we can either repair or replace the complete tracking so that the door will open and close.


3. Lifestyle Garage Door Screens

Lifestyle screens have become popular over the last two decades. They create a recreational environment without all the bugs and other pests lingering inside the garage. When used and stored correctly the screens will last a long time. If you do not treat them right, however, you’ll discover that they won’t last long. We’ll need to repair them faster than anticipated.


4. Garage Door Spring Replacement

When a garage door spring goes bad, we can’t repair it but we are happy to replace it. You’re better off purchasing new springs and calling Garage Doors Plus, LLC to replace them. Although you can use your door without the springs, we strongly advise against it. The springs are the safety feature that keeps the door from opening or closing too fast. If you don’t replace them, you could jeopardize your car or your family’s safety.


5. Wear and Tear on Windows

A few years ago homeowners in Minneapolis began to purchase substitute material for real glass. The results were disastrous as the faux glass scratched and shattered more easily than actual glass. If you’re one of the homeowners who has seen this happen to your garage door, call us for a garage door replacement. Next time, go with real glass. It won’t scratch or pit as quickly, and it will look much better on your door.
