Garage doors are an important part of your home. They allow you easy access to your garage and home. They help to protect your home and belongings. Just like other things that function to keep your home, family, and belongings safe and secure, they do need repairs and maintenance over time. Knowing when to call for garage door repair can be confusing for many homeowners. Below are three signs that you need a garage door repair.
- Noisy – If you are noticing sounds coming from your garage door that are not normal, then it is likely that you need a garage door repair. Some sounds to listen for are popping, grinding, or grating. You might be having a problem with the torsion springs, sections of the door not coming together properly, or the door dragging against the track.
- Won’t Open/Close – A garage door that won’t open or close can be very annoying and frustrating. There can be a few reasons a door won’t open or close. It could be that the door opener is having an issue, the cables are worn, or a gear is stripped.
- Out of Balance – Two signs that you may have an out-of-balance garage door include the door not closing evenly or the door looking like it is sagging. It is important to have your door fixed right away in either of these cases, because if it stays unbalanced or sagging for long, it can cause further damage.
If you notice any of these three signs, it is important to have a professional take a look at your door right away. If you need help with your garage door repair, please give us a call at Doors by Nalley of Lake Norman, Inc.
