Impossible to lift, sagging and cracking, and generally falling apart - these are just some of the common signs that will tell you it's time to replace your garage door with a new one. However, there are a few people who, in spite of the absence of any of these, still go for a replacement door. Why they do so? Here are the top 5 reasons why garage door should be replaced.
Firstly, you should check the metal tracks in the garage doors for any dents or any bumps. In case of damages, use a hammer to remove the dents from the tracks. Also, see if there are any loose screws or bolts in the tracks as this can result in the malfunctioning of the garage doors. The tracks should be kept clean at all times and must be aligned properly. Remember that if you find the problem of the garage gate opener lies with the tracks, you can call in the manufacturer of the doors and ask for a replacement of the garage door parts.
In some cases, a thick gooey substance can be formed on the rollers and the rails of the garage doors. This might result in the doors being stuck. Look into this problem. You can remove the substance by simply using mild soap.
You can perform a few repairs without the help of any professional. However, some repairs are more complicated and should not be attempted by the nonprofessional. If you do so, you might end up injuring yourself. Plus, you might also cause more damage to the garage gate than repair!
5. Reduce the risk of injury. If you're still using your old garage openers, perhaps you'll consider replacing them with the ones equipped with photo electric eyes. These are now mandatory since they sense when something is passing through the opening or is in the way when the door is coming down, preventing an injury.
