5 Signs it’s Time for A Garage Door Service

  1. The Door Won’t Open or Close — This is one of the most obvious indications that your garage door needs to be inspected and repaired — soon. There are several reasons this may be happening, including misaligned sensors, faulty wiring and more. However, before you call a professional for repairs, make sure to double check nothing is blocking the sensors or door. Sometimes if there is an item in the way of the sensors, then your door won’t open. If the door is free from any obstructions and it still won’t open then make sure to call professionals for assistance in repairing it.
  2. Excessive Shakiness or Vibrations — All garage doors are going to have some additional movement, regardless of its actual condition. What you need to look out for is when this becomes excessive. If you start to notice a large amount of shaking or shuddering, it’s an indication of issues that may get worse over time. It could be due to a loose screw, loose hinges, the rollers coming off of the tracks or other similar issues.
  3. Slower Response Times — You should take note of how long it takes for your door to respond to commands given. Usually, a garage door should start opening and closing within a second or two after the opener is pressed. Once the door does begin to move, it should open and close smoothly without any delay or hitching. If you notice any type of delay in the operation, then it may be an indication that there is something wrong with the door or with the opener.
