The best practice is not to wait until your garage door stops working. Once the first signs of breakage emerge, it is best to contact Cranbow for a specialist repair appointment. You need to pay attention to the workings of your garage door for any signs out of the ordinary. It is easy to catch problems early and keep your door in good working condition and help avoid needing a replacement. Below are some common signs that may indicate that your garage door needs repairs:
Door does not open or close.
This is the most obvious issue in a garage door. If your garage door does not open, or if it does not close then, it requires repairs.
Slow response or jamming
When a garage door jams or struggles to close or opens in a fluid motion, then it is time for a repair. It is also possible for your garage door to slowly respond to the garage door opener.
Sagging door sections.
A door that is off balance may continue to rise or fall if the door is stopped midway as you open it. If you notice this, swiftly contact us at Cranbow.
It is not uncommon for older garage doors to make a lot of noise compared to newer models during operation. If, however, you notice extreme creaking or straining, this could mean your garage door requires maintenance or repairs.
The garage door comes off its tracks.
If your garage door comes off its tracks, or its chain comes off, it may be as a result of an old garage door opener. In this situation, you need to contact us for repairs.
Any noticeable physical damage to your garage door opener or the garage door suggests it is time for repairs. Repairing physical damage as soon as possible to avoid worsening a bad condition.
