In addition to feeling a little self-conscious, a noisy garage door can be inconvenient and annoying. Fortunately, you can say goodbye to the anxiety of opening your garage late at night since in most cases a noisy garage is something that can be easily fixed. If in the event you are experiencing a noisy garage door, we at AAA Action Doors have compiled a list below of likely suspects and their fixes.
Worn & Broken Garage Door Components Need to be Replaced
It is always a good idea to have those repaired or replaced if you find any worn down or broken parts. A lot of noise can be created with a worn-down hinge or roller, for example. They can make a big difference in the amount of noise produced from your garage door, and these parts are easily replaced. It is always best to have a qualified garage door repairman fix any issues, however, there are a few parts that are easily replaced for those that have some background. Keep in mind a very serious problem can stem from frayed garage door cables.
Loose Garage Door Parts Can Be Tightened
Tightening any loose parts is one of the first things to do if you have a noisy garage door. Unnecessary noise is highly likely due to the normal wear and tear on your garage door can loosen parts. Make sure that everything is tight and in place as you go through all the parts of your garage door. Also, look for any worn down or broken parts that may need replacing during your own inspection.
Lubricate to Reduce Friction & Make Garage Door Run Smoother?
It is important to make sure that there’s no resistance to your garage door once you are confident that all the components of your garage are in great working order. In order to decrease friction as the door opens and closes, you first should lube the track of the garage door. Next, when the garage door is in motion, use a garage door lube to lubricate all the pieces that move. Before you apply the lubricants, use a rag to wipe the surface clean. Removing the dirt and grime will help ensure the garage door opens smoothly and prevents buildup.
Upgrading to Quieter Garage Door
If your garage door is still too noisy after you have completed these tasks, it may be time to look into replacing your garage door with a quieter option. There may be other parts that need to be tweaked or replaced if in the event the noise of the garage door is coming from the opener. It ultimately may be the way to decrease the overall noise of operation by replacing an old, outdated garage door opener, with a newer, upgraded model.
