How to Know If You Need Garage Door Repair


When you are in need of garage door repair in Marietta, it doesn't necessarily slap you in the face like a plumbing problem. It is likely that you will be able to use your garage door for months or even years before it will either stop working altogether or there could be an accident because the safety features were not up to spec. This can be a very dangerous environment for your family to live in and you should test your garage system regularly to make sure it is all running smoothly. Here are some things to check on your garage door. 


One of the main things you should be checking on regularly is the hardware for your garage door. Depending on what kind of metal you have for your hardware and how old it is, it could become rusty very quickly. You should keep an eye out for rusted hinges and chains. Also make sure that you keep the line lightly oiled to reduce friction and allow the door to run smoothly up and down on the pulley system. You will probably notice any huge issues, like a gaping hole in the door or dents, but it is a good idea to keep these in mind, too, as you are surveying your doors. 

Safety Features

Since the 80s, garage doors have been becoming more and more safe as they have added many safety features to them. You will need to test these safety features regularly, meaning at least every 6 months. One of these is the laser at the ground level of the garage. This laser will tell the door to go back up if there is something blocking it. This can be helpful if you have little children playing underneath it or you didn't pull your car far enough in. There is also a feature that will tell the garage door to go back up if you put any resistance on it with your arms. You can test this by running the door and pushing up on it as it goes down. 

Balance Test

Another safety feature for a garage door is balance. If a door is balanced, it should remain in position when you disconnect it from the drive system. Try leaving the door in several different positions and, if it is in need of garage door repair in Marietta, it will fall shut or spring open. This can be a big safety concern, so you should call a professional to balance your door as soon as possible.
