An Introduction To Garage Door Hinges

Neighborhood Garage Door Service of Sacramento, CA works on all hardware, including garage door hinges. These very important parts of your door system need ongoing care and inspection. When it comes time to replace your hinges, you’ll want to have a basic understanding of them.

Carriage-style Garage Door Hinges

garage door hinges

Carriage-style garage doors open from the center outward, rather than rolling up towards the ceiling. This means that they have hinges that are on the side of the doors attaching them to the door frame. These hinges bear a lot of weight, especially those that are on wooden garage doors.

You’ll want to get the thickest, highest-quality hinges that you can find so that they can hold this weight over the long haul. You also have many styles choices to consider:

  • Material – Do you want a wrought-iron look or a shiny metal?
  • Shape – There are many decorative shapes that can enhance the look of your door.
  • Length – While this is also a structural decision, you will also want to consider the look of the hinge’s length.

Hinges On Roll-up Doors

Traditional roll-up doors do not feature hinges on the sides but between the segmented horizontal panels. These allow the door to ride up the tracks and over the interior of the garage. Each individual hinge carries less of the weight of the door compared to carriage-style hinges. They still require the appropriate gauge of thickness to hold enough weight to hold the panels together.

Gauges and Sizes

Be sure to buy the right gauge, size, and number of garage door hinges for the needs of your door. The lower the gauge number, the thicker the hinges and the more weight it can bear. Obviously, the thicker the hinge, the more expensive it will be, so decide ahead of time the budget for your project.

These hinges also come in various widths for different applications, so you’ll want to buy hinges that match the kind you already have. Lastly, pay attention to the size number stamped on your existing hinges. The different numbered hinges are used on various joints throughout the door, so be sure to match your existing hinges.

Rollers Need Care Too

Garage Door Is Coming Off Its Tracks due to worn rollers

The garage door hinges and rollers on a traditional door are closely linked in the overall system. As hinges wear out, it can cause the door to be misaligned and add unnecessary strain to the rollers. It is a good idea to closely inspect the rollers when replacing hinges to see if any need replacing while you’re at it.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
