Although garage doors may seem sturdy and indestructible, even the toughest materials will break down eventually. So, if your garage door is several years old and starting to become unreliable, you may want to start preparing for a garage door replacement service.
Our team at Race City Garage Door is committed to helping every one of our clients repair and maintain their garage doors as best as we can. However, there are some clear signs that indicate to us that a garage door needs more than a few repairs. If you notice any of these issues with your garage door, we strongly recommend contacting our team for garage door replacement service:
- Sagging: This is often seen on older wooden garage doors, as the wood can warp over time if it isn’t properly maintained. Nonetheless, steel garage doors can sag for a number of reasons as well, so it’s always wise to contact a professional to identify the underlying cause.
- Unusual noises or vibrations: If your garage door starts making strange sounds or noticeably shakes when you’re opening or closing it, it could require some serious maintenance or total replacement, depending on the age and condition of the garage door.
- Broken or missing safety features: Garage doors today are designed to stop if their sensors locate something beneath a closing door. However, older garage doors may not have this feature at all, which could potentially lead to property damage or serious injuries.
- Unreliability: If you feel like you’re constantly struggling to open or close a difficult garage door, it’s time to call in the pros. An experienced technician will be able to identify and fix the problem causing your frustration, or they’ll be able to provide garage door replacement service if necessary.
