Check Door on a Regular Basis

It’s important to check your garage door on a regular basis. If the door is not operating correctly, you might cause an injury to someone or the door might not open at all. It’s estimated that there are over 13,000 injuries caused each year by malfunctioning garage doors. If you check your garage door on a regular basis, you can also reduce the chances that you’re going to have an inexpensive garage door repair or need a new garage door installation.

Things That Can Go Wrong with Your Garage Door

Several things can go wrong with your garage door. One thing on the garage door that can fail is the extension springs. These are found on each side of the garage door and they stretch when your garage door is moved downwards. The torsion springs consist of a bar made from steel that goes across the top of the garage door and this operates under tension. In some cases, these springs might need to be repaired. If one of these springs has failed, is it good indication that the other one is going to need to be repaired or be replaced at the same time. You want to have Springs on the garage door that are new so that they have the same type of tension. You don’t want one new spring and one old spring on the garage door because the older one is going to fail a lot faster than the newer one. These strings may fail due to poor installation or poor maintenance. Changing weather conditions in your area may also cause the springs to fail.

If your garage door it seems to be making a lot more noise than normal such as scraping noises, or squeaking, it could be an indication that some of the parts of the door may be wearing out. You can always call a garage door installation specialist to come and look at the door to see if there is anything that needs to be changed or repaired. If you continue to ignore noises and other abnormalities with your garage door the entire garage door may fail and you could have an even more expensive repair bill or need a full installation. If the door or the remote is unresponsive you may also have a problem with your garage door. The first thing you should do is to check the remote to see if it needs new batteries because this might be the only reason why the door is not functioning. In some cases, the entire door may have a serious problem that will need to be addressed.


You want your garage door to function at all times. If you ever have a problem with your garage door it’s best to speak to a professional to have the door repaired or to have a professional garage door installation done to replace the malfunctioning door.
