Is It a Problem If Your Garage Door is Loud?

01/15/2018

Is It Normal for a Garage to Be NoisyIf your garage door sounds loud, there’s a good chance something is wrong. First, it’s important to understand that there are numerous garage door parts that all work together to open and close your door. It’s normal for there to be some sound and it doesn’t always mean there’s something wrong.

But if you notice your door becoming increasingly loud, you might want to hire a garage door technician to check it out.

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.
