Silencing A Noisy Garage Door

Garage Door Serviced of Columbus, Ohio wants you to know that having a noisy garage door is not a normal thing to have going on with your garage door. Most people think that fixing a noisy garage door is hard and time consuming, some homeowners don’t even know how to go about finding the cause of the noise or how to repair the problem, that is what we are here for. The fact of the matter is that repairing your noisy or squeaky garage door is actually a lot easier than most homeowners think it is, you can easily be noise free in no time at all.

Identifying The Reason For The Garage Door Noise

replace your old garage door to reduce noise

Before you can fix the problem of a noisy overhead door then you must first figure out where the problem is coming from, what is causing the noise and how to fix the problem. The issue creating all that racket could be something as simple as a balance and alignment problem, this could cause the sound to vibrate through the home’s foundation. Next thing you will want to do is to evaluate the quality of your garage door, check to make sure that the door is still in good condition and that there’s no loose hinges and such that may cause a noise as the door goes up and down.

Check to make sure that all bolts and screws are nice and tight and make sure to tighten any as needed that may have become loosened by the vibration of the door. Also if your garage door does not currently have any insulation in it then you may want to seriously consider adding some, it may help to eliminate some of the noises caused by the vibrations of the garage door.

Once you have checked the garage door as well as all the other components then try turning to the tracks and rollers. Make sure that all of the tracks and rollers are free and clear of any dirt or debris that can cause the track to get all clogged up. A big issue is sand, when the wheels and bearings get coated in sand they will cause a lot of noise to come from the garage door when it’s opened or closed.

Choosing A Garage Door Opener That Is Right For You

The last step is to make sure to focus on your automatic garage door opener, choosing the proper garage door opener for your garage door can make a big difference in how well it operates because if you have the wrong one it can cause problems such as loud noises. The older chain driven garage door openers tend to be a lot louder than the newer belt driven ones, so spending a little more now to replace it will make a big difference later on down the road.
Garage Door Services of Columbus Ohio wants to make sure that you get the best garage door opener for you. We also want you to know everything that you need to know about how to fix a noisy and squeaky garage door yourself. If you have tried all the tips listed here and it is still making a lot of noise then you will want to call a professional out to check up on it and find the problem of the noise.

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.
