Common Door Faults

With many moving components it’s common for issues to arise and professional repairs to be needed. It’s recommended that your garage door gets annual maintenance for safety, security and longevity but faults can occur for many reasons.

Garage Door Opener Won’t Work – Maybe your garage door may not lock or it won’t open from closed. It is usually due to issues with the lifting mechanism.

Gaps Or Cracks Appearing – Cracks will be more common in wooden garage doors. In many cases, a repair can be carried out but it may be that you would benefit from a replacement door in a more suitable material. 

Strange Creaking or Grinding Noises – After constant use, your door can develop new sounds such as creaking or grinding. It can be for a number of reasons but is usually a sign that a specific section of the mechanism is rubbing and/or faulty.
