Garages are often the largest entrance to your home, one most people use everyday for years. Other than just wanting an upgrade, or just a new look for your home, how do you know when to replace your garage door? To ensure the safety of anyone who uses your door, it is important to recognize these critical signs that it may be necessary to replace your garage door.
Signs That You Should Replace Your Garage Door:
1. Shaking Doors-If you fear an earthquake every time you open your garage door, it may be a sign that it should be replaced. A shaking garage door could mean that parts are loose and could result in a collapse...and even serious injury.
2. Noise-If you hear any unfamiliar noises coming from your door as you open/close it, chances are, you should give our service team a call. The parts may just need to be oiled, but a noisy door is also a sign your garage door needs replacement.
3. Crooked Door-If your door does not close straight, give us a call right away. A part has probably busted or come loose. The misalignment of your door is a sign that it is about to collapse.
4. Wires/Cords-There should not be any wires or cords hanging from any part of your garage door system. Exposed wires or cords can lead to bigger (more expensive) problems down the road, so give us a call before it's too late!
