Nothing lasts forever; this is more so the case of things that are always forced to stand up to the trials and tribulations of the outside world; and all of the attacks generated from it. It is from this that our garage door, the most significant opening and barrier combination our home has, becomes so valuable. We need to make sure that it is well maintained and taken care of. So, that said, what kind of problems can this cause your garage door and its components? We have a list of the most common issues that you may find yourself dealing with, so make sure you read through them to get a better idea what you may be facing.

Door Does Not Open or Close

This could be the result of a few problems but is usually traced back to the door opener. This can generally be solved with a change of batteries. If this is not the case, you should make sure that the sensor lenses are cleaned and not covered in grime.

Warping

When it comes to having wooden garage doors, one of the more common problems that you may come across is the warping of the door itself. It is a gradual process, slowly forcing your door to bend and bow outward, which will force your door to stop working. The door can be repaired by installing tension rods, as they will help straighten the door over time.

Noisy Garage Door

Though it is true, a garage door is not exactly the quietest of things; you can tell when it is making more noise than usual. This occurring is a visible sign that some part of the door is not functioning at optimum efficiency, which can, in itself, lead to other parts of your door becoming damaged. If something sounds off with your garage door, you should contact a professional to come out and evaluate the issue, as trying to complete the job by yourself can lead to you causing more harm than good.
