Repairing a Garage Door

Posted on August 21, 2014 at 1:03 pm

A problem which regularly arises for owners of garage doors is when they’ve been in use for a while the mechanisms responsible for lifting and bearing weight-tension experience a lot of wear-and-tear, and regularly break down. This can require a large expenditure to repair and get the door back to working order.

Lots of things can occur which could require such a repair job: the nuts and bolts could become rusted, needing replacement; the levers could become slightly bent, increasing pressure and tension in certain areas in the design and ruining its integrity; wires could snap; or any automation computer could stop working within a few years of use. Looking at this list, there are things that you can do to avoid any significant cost on your end; such as repairing damaged levers as soon as possible, so that the damage doesn’t begin to build over time. Of course, basic maintenance, such as using grease and hinge oil on the levers and bolts, can avoid the need for regular replacement of some of the mechanism’s components.
