When To Arrange A Garage Door Repair Or Replacement

There are various types of garage doors, whether that’s electric, up and over, wooden or sectional. No matter what type of garage door you have, a garage door is key to your home’s exterior and safety, keeping your home and belongings safe. That’s why it's crucial to regularly maintain and check the functionality and appearance of your garage door, to ensure it operates correctly at all times.

A damaged or faulty garage door can require immediate attention from a specialist to prevent any risk to you, your family or the safety of your home. It’s important to be aware of any minor faults or issues you come across with your garage door. Addressing minor garage door faults before they worsen can save money and property damage in the future. 

Here are 3 things to consider if you think your garage door needs to be repaired or replaced:

  1. Don’t ignore the little things

A minor fault isn’t always a reason for immediate concern, however, if you notice something is not quite right with your garage door it’s definitely worth giving it a further inspection. This could be things like your garage door opening and closing more slowly than normal or it making an unusual noise during operation.

Although small at first, these problems can quickly worsen, and could even cost you a whole new garage door because of a relatively minor fault that wasn’t looked after. Give our team a call and we can attend if you notice any unusual creaking, banging or vibrating noises or performance issues as soon as possible.

  1. Look out for mechanical problems

One main reason for concern can be when a garage door fails to open and close properly. This can be caused by the cables inside the mechanism becoming twisted or severed. In an electric garage door, broken cables can result in the door closing suddenly, with the risk of potential injury. If your garage door is fitted with an electrical operating system, a severed cable can cause shock injuries.

At any point, if you suspect a cable issue or operational mishap, call in an engineer immediately. In these scenarios, we recommend you avoid operating the door until a specialist has inspected any issues for your safety.
