We can all agree that a noisy garage door can be very annoying.
So, if you are tired of hearing unpleasant noises, we have tips to help quiet noisy doors.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Start by tightening any loose parts
Bolts and nuts along your garage door track will often become noisy when they’re loose. Try to locate them and tighten the ones that feel loose, but be careful not to overtighten.
If you’re not sure you’re doing it right, it’s advisable to call in a professional.
- Lubricate moving parts
All moving parts made of metal, such as rollers, hinges, and springs, need lubrication more often.
So, if you hear squeaking sounds or grinding noises, the metal rollers may be the culprits. Ensure to lubricate them and all other moving parts thoroughly.
However, do not lubricate if your rollers are nylon; they do not require a lubricant to function. This also means if you are getting unpleasant noises, your nylon rollers are definitely not the source.
- Check for any worn out parts and have them replaced
Damaged and worn-out parts can also cause your door to be noisy. Confirm if your rollers, hinges, or springs are worn out or damaged. And if you’re unable to spot any parts, call in the professionals.
Note: if your garage door proves difficult to move or it seems off-track, don’t attempt any fixing; let the professionals handle the issue.
We also advise scheduling regular garage door maintenance to help catch garage door problems before they become a major issue.
