TRY THESE SIMPLE FIXES FIRST , So before hitting the panic button why not try these simple repairs yourself. First, look at the rollers and tracks to see if there is anything in the way that might need a little clean (give them a little brush down and a spray of WD40).
(Garage Door Repairs) If your garage door opener is operated by a chain or drive screw check to see if anything is in the way of the chain to prevent it from working properly then apply some lubricant (WD40).
Sometimes the weather strips along the sides of the garage door can jam- if that’s the case adjust them as required or replace them if necessary. How Much Do Common Garage Door Repairs Cost?
Though you can do some maintenance to your Garage Doors Repairs on your own, it may be a good idea to schedule routine inspections with a professional. A typical service call will include a manual inspection of the door and opener. Then adjustments can be made including spring tension, chain/belt tension, limits and force adjustments and door lubrication. Fees for this service vary from place to place, but garage door repairs typically cost £80 plus part.
The movement of the garage door is uneven. (Garage Door Repairs)
Spring Issues – Unless it is due to an obstruction of some type, uneven movement of your garage door is likely caused by a problem with the spring mechanism. Roll-up doors generally have one center-mounted torsion spring. The tension on torsion springs is great. Therefore, it is necessary to call a professional for any repairs to this type of spring mechanism to avoid serious injury.
Your garage door falls very quickly. (Garage Door Repairs)
If your garage door falls more quickly than it once did, or bounces around when in use, it is likely due to broken chains or cables. This is a repair best done by a professional. The cables or chains are relatively inexpensive, but installation takes some time.
What About the Rollers?
The rollers can be another cause for residential garage door repair. The rollers can rust or corrode, which will make it much more difficult for them to roll. That will add stress to the motor in its operation. Over time, that added stress will lead to the motor prematurely malfunctioning. You can oil the rollers from time to time in between routine visits from a garage door engineer.
