If you have a garage installed for your residential home or commercial building in South Jersey or North Jersey, it is very likely that you use your garage doors every day, but rarely take the time to think about whether it should be examined or inspected to maintain its performance. Unfortunately, most people don’t pay close attention to their garage doors until something goes wrong. Therefore, if you want to help prevent any problems, or ensure your garage doors function efficiently for years down the road, scheduling regular maintenance in Princeton, NJ is an excellent idea. In fact, if you were to ask us, we’d say have your garage doors inspected every year just as you would your heating and cooling systems, roof, siding, etc.
While most signs will be obvious when your garage door requires repair or replacement (such as the door won’t open or close), other signs may not be as evident, and can only be identified by a repair man when he visits your home to perform an inspection. Here at Fast Local Garage Door, our repairmen will look for the following signs (and more) that may indicate your door needs repairs or replacement.
Signs Your Garage Door needs Repairs or Replacement
- Slow response to commands
●If your garage door will not open or close after you repeatedly press the control buttons, it’s a clear sign that it desperately needs repair. Some reasons your doors may be slow to respond are because there is a poor connection between the control panel and the door or that the door just simply malfunctioned for another reason yet to be found by our repair man.
- There is a lot of noise when the doors open and close
Most people dismiss loud noises because they believe that they are a result of the doors just being older; however, if there is excessive and persistent straining or creaking noise, there could be a problem with the spring or opener. If left unrepaired, these minor problems could lead to a complete breakdown of the door. Instead, let our spring repair service or opener repair service take care of the problem for you.
- Your energy bills are on the rise
Faulty windows or an unkempt heating and/or cooling system are not the only cause of your energy bills to rise; an older garage door can create the same issue for you. If you want to make your home as energy-efficient as possible, consider having your current garage door replaced with a newer model.
