Is It a Problem If Your Garage Door is Loud?


Is It Normal for a Garage to Be Noisy

Does your garage door keep the neighbors up at night? Yeah, that’s embarrassing. But it’s also annoying. A garage door should be a benefit of convenience, not a disruption of your peace and quiet. If your garage door is terribly loud, this is a sign it needs repaired. In most cases, some simple DIY maintenance like lubrication and tightening down the bolts can get it working beautifully again. If the door is old and in considerable disrepair, however, you might need to scrap it completely and just install a brand new door. Here are a few easy ways you can fix it.

In general, a noisy door could mean a few things including:

  • Your garage door parts require lubrication
  • The garage door opener or motor is failing
  • You might have a door off track
  • The springs are beginning to age or rust

Remember: loud noise is a sign that something’s about to go wrong. It’s often much cheaper to have it repaired now instead of waiting for it to completely break down.

Things to Keep in Mind to Repair Overhead Garage Door

There are a variety of things that may need to be repaired from time to time on your overhead garage door. Most are fairly easy to fix yourself. The garage cables and springs, however, do not fall in the DIY category. These springs are under an incredible amount of tension and can cause serious bodily injury if suddenly released. Always call a professional if you have a problem with your springs or cables. They have both the proper training and tools to do it safely. That being said, you should do a visual inspection of your cables and springs. Look for any fraying issues or rust issues. If you see the cables or springs have deteriorated, call a professional for a more complete inspection.
