Do it yourself garage door repairs

15/02/2018

It can sometimes be difficult to know what to do when you are experiencing problems with your garage door. Whether you attempt to carry out any repairs yourself will ultimately depend on whether you can identify the problematic part as well as whether you are confident about fixing it yourself. If you are in any doubt about carrying out a repair or replacement it is best to contact a professional company for help.

One of the most common issues that people experience with their garage doors concerns the rollers and there are several things you can do if this is the case. First of all look for whether there is a lot of accumulated dust or dirt within the tracks themselves. This can seriously impede the way the rollers move and could be affecting how the door opens and closes. Wipe them down and check whether operation is smoother as a result.

Another possible cause of imperfect (or noisy) opening and closing could be the tracks. If the tracks are not securely attached to the wall then this means the whole system could be misaligned. If this is the case, it is important to make sure they are tightly fixed back in place. Track misalignment could also be causing problems. Tracks should be parallel with each other – if this isn’t the case use a level to adjust them so that they are sitting in the correct position.
