When a garage door starts to play up, it can be quite confusing & disheartening especially if the garage door has been working fine up until that point. Wear & tear is a factor which is something people don’t realise when they’re using their garage doors every day. If your garage door is beginning to show signs of wear, it may be time to call a professional in order to repair the issues, ensuring that the door is working as it should!
Why doesn’t my garage door close?
Garage doors that won’t close usually mean one of two things. That either the controller is broken or that the cable/track that opens and closes the garage door is broken/damaged. If it’s a controller issue, the sensors from your remote may be the cause of this. You can try and wipe the lens of the emitters to clear the “eyes” of any dirt that is obstructing the infra-red. If the issue stems from the track/cable then you should be able to observe obvious damage to the respective component. Obvious blockages/debris can be cleared from the tracks/cable but if you are unable to see the fault, it could be a motor issue. If this is the case then it’s best to leave the repair to the professionals.
When should I replace my garage door?
Garage doors are not something that you should be purchasing every year. The general life span of your average garage door should be around 10 to 15 years. If you are good at maintaining the condition of your garage door then it’s possible to prolong the life of your garage door, ensuring that the rollers, springs, motors & cables are kept in good condition.
