No one wants to pay for repairs that aren’t actually necessarily, whether it’s to your kitchen dishwasher, your car, or your garage door. That’s why so often our customers wait to call us for their garage door repair needs; they want to make sure the problem isn’t going to resolve itself. While we understand wanting to save your money, all too often customers find that the longer they wait to get their garage door repairs taken care of, the more expensive the issue is to fix. Typically, the sooner you call, the easier the repairs are to get done and the less expensive your final bill is going to be. The key is to know when you should be calling our team for the garage door repairs that you need. Here are some of the signs that you can look for when it comes to your garage door!

Have You Seen Any of These Signs?

Garage door shaking when opening or closing.

This is a sign that there is probably an issue with the rail that run alongside your garage door to lift and close it. Your garage door could be out of alignment, too, perhaps because it’s been bumped or nudged out of place. This could become a major issue if it isn’t addressed; eventually, you could find your garage door isn’t opening or closing at all or it could even come off of the rails entirely.

Garage door making strange noises.

Strange noises are not something to be ignored. It’s a sure sign that something is going wrong somewhere with your garage door system. Most likely, there is an issue with the garage door opener that needs to be addressed. Whatever is making the noise, though, needs to be checked out by a professional repairman before it causes more issues.

Garage door stopping when opening or closing.

Usually, this is a sign that there is something in the way of the laser eye that monitors obstructions in the path of the garage door. This is a feature that’s important for safety, but if it starts to fail can be a major inconvenience. You might find that you can’t get in or out of your garage, and that’s not something you want to mess around with. It’s best to get a garage door repair technician to your home right away.

Garage door not stopping when objects in the way.

This isn’t just an inconvenience, this is a major safety hazard. This safety feature is there to prevent children, pets, and your belongings from getting crushed by a heavy garage door. The eye on your garage door that looks for obstructions probably needs to be realigned or otherwise fixed. These repairs are usually pretty fast and inexpensive, so it’s not something you should put off.
