How To Know When To Replace Your Garage Door

Posted by Overhead Door Permian Basin on Tue, Jul 14, 2015 @ 12:21 PM

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!

At Overhead Door, your safety and satisfaction are our priorities. If your garage door is displaying any of the above signs, give us a call for an entirely FREE estimate to see if you should replace your garage door.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have to hold down the button in order for the garage door to close. What’s wrong?

There could be a couple things wrong with this situation. First, check to see if there is anything obstructing the sensor towards the bottom of the door. If nothing is there, look at both sides of the door and the tracks toward the floor. You should see two LED lights. Is one of them blinking or not lit at all? If so, the safety sensors need to be adjusted. There is a simple fix for this: turn or tilt the sensor that is off or blinking until the light is solid. Then try the door again. If neither of these solutions work, call us and we will fix the issue!

Can you help me with my broken garage door after hours or on the weekend?

Yes, we have an emergency line where you can reach us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We know that broken garage doors can be a huge inconvenience. When you call us today, we will come today. What’s more, we do not charge extra for calls on evenings, weekends, or holidays.

How do I book a service?

Easy! Just give us a call or contact us through our website at: http://www.overheaddoorpermianbasin.com/schedule-a-service-call/

We heard a loud noise in the garage and cannot open the garage door now. What could be wrong?

If the garage door stopped working after the noise you heard, then the noise could have been the sound of a spring breaking. Call us for a quick appointment to inspect the garage door. If you have a broken spring, our qualified service technician can replace the spring your springs and ensure the garage door is safe and functional for future use. We always recommend replacing both springs if one has broken.

My garage door does not close all the way. Sometimes it reverses at the bottom, or right after it starts moving. What do I do?

The problem is most likely with the electric “safety eyes” that project an invisible “beam” or sensor across the door opening. The sensor detects obstacles in the way of the door and stops the garage door from closing on objects. If the “eyes” are out of alignment, the sensor will work sporadically. Our technicians can help fix this problem or determine if your garage door is not working for some other reason.
