Noisy Doors

Noisy Doors

Typically, garage doors should open and close smoothly, quietly, and without a hitch. Since they don’t generally make much noise, suddenly hearing excessive volumes of noise can be a good first clue that there is something wrong with the door. Loud noises coming from your garage door usually mean that the door needs either maintenance or repairs. Aside from just being annoying, a loud garage door can be a safety issue that necessitates Long Beach garage door repair right away.

Causes of a Noisy Garage Door

If the garage door is making too much noise, the problem may stem from several different components. Garage doors have numerous components, and any one of them can wear out with age or break over time. The springs and hinges are several significant parts on a garage door that can break and must be fixed immediately. Other components on the garage door can also become loose and cause too much noise. That can include the nuts, rollers, hinges, chain, and bolt. All these components must be in good working condition for the door to operate correctly. Even if one tiny part on the garage door breaks, it can affect the function of the entire garage door. Identifying the cause of wear and tear on the door, however, will help you determine which components require maintenance. If the rollers become wobbly, they may need to be tightened or replaced. The chain will make a loud slapping noise if it is coming loose. Bolts and nuts that need to be replaced will cause vibration.

If the garage door is making more noise than you would like, start by lubricating the components so that the garage door can function as well as it did initially. Parts that are not lubricated will otherwise rub together, which then produces excess noises such as grinding, rattling, and squeaking.

An unbalanced garage door can also cause more noise than usual. If a garage door is not balanced, it can eventually cause a snapped cable or spring. You can sometimes tell if a garage door is unbalanced if it appears uneven when it is opened or closed, gets stuck shut, or makes strange sounds such as scraping, rattling, or banging.

Along with the issues above, a garage door may not be installed properly in the first place, which then causes issues like excess noise. If the garage door sticks halfway when you open it, if it doesn’t open or close properly, or if it constantly makes strange sounds, improper installation may be to blame.

Troubleshooting Problems with Your Garage Door

The sounds you hear with your garage door may help you pinpoint and maybe even fix the problem. The noise that a garage door is making can fall into several different sounds, including:

  • Squeaking
  • Grinding
  • Rattling

If your garage door is making a squeaking sound, it may be due to a relatively minor problem you can fix yourself. Squeaking garage doors may simply need to be lubricated. It’s easy to check on your own if the door needs lubrication by applying some lubricant to the main components. Be sure to cover the tracks and rollers with a layer of lubrication. You can also then apply lubrication to the areas in between the garage door’s frame and its panels. Contact us for Long Beach garage door repair if you can’t solve the problem after applying lubrication.

Several things can cause grinding noises. A garage door that’s making a grinding noise can also be caused by inadequate lubrication. Applying a layer of lubricant, therefore, is a simple and fast way to determine if lubrication is the issue. If the garage door is still making odd noises after that, the problem may be due to the garage door’s rollers instead. While you can fix a garage door with insufficient lubrication on your own, fixing a garage door that has broken rollers is another story. Broken rollers require an expert’s fix, so you should let us know right away if you need Long Beach garage door repair. Broken rollers can compromise the garage door’s function, and they can turn into a safety hazard as well.

Sergio M. was able to quickly come out and do a new door estimate at my rental properties. Current doors are old wooden flip up doors and were ready to replace. I was impressed with the many options Sergio presented me. The new doors have added a big appeal to these rental properties. Precision is very kind and professional I couldn’t be happier with Sergio M. recommendations. They were able to work around my schedule too. Highly recommend!!
