Why is My Garage Door Noisy?

If you notice your garage door making a loud noise, not only is it annoying, but it could be the root of a potential problem. Having the issue inspected sooner rather than later can really make a difference. The good news is, Neighborhood Garage Door Repair has solutions!

Causes Of Garage Door Noise

With all the parts of a garage door, chances are at some point, parts will wear out and break down. More often than not, the noisy part can be repaired, but there are some cases where the part needs to be replaced. Knowing some of the causes of the problems can be beneficial.

Some of the common causes include:

  • Doors being unbalanced
  • Bent tracks
  • Loose nuts and bolts
  • Improperly lubricated
  • Tracks being too tight
  • Loose rollers or hinges
  • And more…

Some of these issues can be dealt with yourself while others such as unbalanced doors, need to be checked out by a professional. Technicians are trained to safely repair an unbalanced door without causing damage or injury.

How To Repair A Noisy Garage Door

A noisy garage door can be frustrating for you as a homeowner and annoying to anyone close enough to hear it. With regular maintenance and slight repairs, you can solve many of the issues yourself. Below, we’ve listed some steps of ways you can get your garage door to be quieter:

  • Tighten nuts and bolts that have loosened
  • Lubricate the nylon rollers or replace them if they need it
  • Replace your torsion or extension springs; they may just need lubricated
  • Check the hinges for loosening or rusting and replace or oil them

Even the least of handymen can repair these garage door issues with little effort. You don’t have to spend your days listening to an unwanted noisy garage door.

Scheduling Regular Maintenance Can Benefit

It is recommended to schedule a maintenance and inspection appointment at least once a year. This can be done more often if you use your door more than the average homeowner. With the expense of a garage door, protecting your investment is really a good idea.

During a maintenance appointment, a technician will come to your address and inspect each part of your garage door. If something needs lubricated, they can do it then. They can also make any repairs or adjustments to save you time and money in the long run.

Other Simple Solutions

For making your garage door quieter during the operation, you can take other steps to help achieve your goal. By changing out some of the parts, you can provide a solution that you and your neighborhood can live with. Some steps to take include:

  • Adding rubber in various spots as a buffer for noise
  • Use nylon rollers instead of metal rollers
  • Keep all metal components lubricated
  • Keep all maintenance appointments

Just doing these few simple steps can let you live with your garage door without all the extra noise. Trust me, your family and neighbors will thank you for 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.
