When you can hear your garage door open and close from the other end of the home, it can be very unpleasant. A loud garage door is not only annoying, it can also be an early sign there is a problem. As a garage ages it tends to build up minor problems and many of them result in loud grinding noises. With a little maintenance and help you can quiet a loud garage door. AAA Action Garage Doors will share how a professional garage door technician can help quiet your noisy garage door.
Tighten Loose Garage Door Components
As the many screws and bolts loosen up, the garage door will tend to rattle and make lots of noise. This rattling noise is a sign that the garage door is in need of maintenance. A professional garage door technician looks at and checks every bolt and screw to see if they need to be tightened. It is dangerous to overtighten the bolts, which many who may attempt their own repairs often do. You will want the bolts tight but not to the point they strip the screw heads or drive the bolt head through the garage door. To ensure the garage door’s screws and bolts are all checked and properly tightened back in place, it is recommended to seek professional services.
Lubricate Moving Garage Door Parts
Another common reason why a garage door will make a lot of grinding or screeching noises is when the moving parts of the garage door are dry. Garage doors have a number of moving parts such as roller, hinges and springs. These moving components often need to be lubricated to ensure the garage door operates effectively. Not only will a garage door make a lot of noise when it is not lubricated, it also causes additional stress to the entire system. Any level of stress can cause a garage down to wear down faster. To ensure the longevity and quietness of the garage door, have all of the moving components properly lubricated.
Replacement of Worn Garage Door Parts
When you hire a professional garage door service to come to your home and maintain the garage door system, they will help tighten down loose bolts and lubricate all moving parts. In addition, they will also do a thorough inspection of the entire garage door system. They will look for any worn components that can prove hazardous. As components wear down they can create a lot of noise, the roller can break, the balance of the door can be affected, hinges can corrode, and springs can wear out. As primary components wear down it will put more stress on the garage door and begin breaking down the rest of the garage door. Not only can you reduce the amount of noise the garage door will make by replacing the worn down parts, you will also increase the life of your garage door and it’s operating systems.
