However, garage doors are not immune to wear and tear, which could lead to damage, and, unfortunately, inevitable repairs. Faulty garage doors that cannot be adequately secured pose a safety risk or put valuables at risk from theft. Regular maintenance and adjustment of the garage door will help to make the opening and closing process smooth and effortless, thereby minimising the risks associated with faulty garage doors. Cable breaks or broken springs on overhead doors can cause difficulty accessing or exiting the garage. It is essential to keep garage doors well-maintained to avoid such situations.

If your garage door is faulty and cannot be secured properly, it poses a serious safety risk, not to mention the chance of stolen valuable items. Whether it’s an issue with your roller or sectional garage door, it’s essential to seek the help of a professional repair service. You don’t want to risk your safety and the safety of your possessions.

Make sure your garage door is functioning properly. Before hiring a door repair service, check out reviews to ensure their quality of work and security services are up to par.

Do your garage doors exhibit any of the following:

  • Grinding/rubbing Noises: If your garage door makes strange sounds when opening or closing, the doors could have warped (if wooden) or twisted if electrically operated.
  • Door jammed: Wooden doors will swell in damp, cold, or wet conditions preventing smooth opening and closing.
  • Jammed solid: This happens when the door comes off the track/runners.
  • Rapid Closing: The timing sequence needs adjusting and timed to perfection that could compromise safety or cause vehicle damage.
  • Slow Opening or Closing: A sluggish or slow action can make you late for that important appointment.
  • Door Won’t Stay Open: The doors open but then begin closing of their own accord.
  • Sensor Problems: Remote sensor is not activating the motor.
  • Damaged Hinges: Worn or loose hinges can cause a door to drop and jam.
  • Old and/or Damaged Door/Track Rollers: Preventing a smooth rolling action over the tracking, causing them to jam.
  • Faulty Locks: Unsecure garage/roller doors can be a thoroughfare for burglars into a property.

Our team of garage door specialists in London will put right all the above issues and many more not listed. Call us if you are experiencing any problems with your garage doors.

When faced with a garage door issue, it’s always best to turn to the handbook for a solution.

Checklist before calling the professionals:

  1. Is the remote control’s battery flat?
  2. Have the doors been manually locked?
  3. Could there be a misaligned sensor?
  4. Has a fuse blown in the circuit?
  5. Has the lock mode been mistakenly activated?

Thankfully, these issues can often be resolved without the need to call a professional. A little troubleshooting might be all that is needed.

However, when the fault is more serious, it’s best to enlist the expertise of a skilled tradesperson, especially when faced with:

  1. A broken door spring.
  2. Snapped or tangled cables.
  3. Gearing or motor malfunctions.
  4. Doors stubbornly jammed tight.
  5. Doors that have veered off the runners.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How often should you replace your garage door?

Typically, garage doors are replaced every 8 to 12 years. Proper maintenance on all moving parts could extend their service life to 15 years.

Q: What is the best mechanism for opening/closing garage doors?

Belt-driven doors are the preferred choice. They operate quietly, provide smooth functionality, impressive durability and a longer lifespan.
Feel free to contact us to discuss your repair or installation requirements with one of our team members, who will offer guidance and advice.

Q: Can I replace my garage doors?

Yes, you can. However, replacing garage doors can be complex and physically demanding if you entrust the project to an experienced professional. However, we highly recommend consulting and engaging professionals for safety reasons. Also, the work will come with a 12-month guarantee and warranty that comes with the work for peace of mind.

Q: Is installing a new garage door on the old tracks possible?

It is not recommended to install a new door on old tracks. Additionally, if the tracks have been in place for 10-15 years, they are unlikely to give reliability for another 10-15 years.
