Signs Your Garage Door Needs Repairing
There are several signs that may indicate that your garage door needs to be repaired. Here are a few common ones:
Unusual noises: If your garage door is making grinding, squeaking, or screeching noises when opening or closing, it may be a sign that some of the parts are wearing out or need lubrication.
Difficulty opening or closing If your garage door is difficult to open or close, it may be due to a malfunctioning opener or issues with the tracks, springs, or cables.
Sagging or uneven door: If your garage door is sagging or appears uneven, it may be due to a problem with the springs or cables.
Slow response time: If your garage door is slow to respond when opening or closing it may be a sign that the opener needs to be repaired or replaced.
Visible damage: If there is visible damage to the door, such as dents, cracks, or broken panels, it is likely your garage door needs to be repaired, or in this instance, possible replaced if the damage is extensive.
If you notice any of these signs, it is important to have your garage door inspected by a professional to prevent further damage and ensure the security of your property.
