When Your Wood Garage Door Needs to be Repaired

Here are signs that a wood garage door is in need of repairs.

For a lot of homeowners, garage doors are used as a means of either keeping our cars protected from the elements and/or getting inside of your house. As such, when your door stops working, it can be a huge inconvenience for anyone in your home. It’s important to know when your garage door needs fixing so you can get it back to peak efficiency as quickly as possible. Here are signs that a wood garage door is in need of repairs.

Your Frame and Panels are Rotting

After you’ve had your wood garage door for a while, you’ll likely start seeing signs of decay. One of these signs is wood rot, particularly in your frame and paneling. This is a problem that will only grow worse with time and, as such, it’s best to hire a garage door repair company to address the problem before it gets out of hand.

Your Garage Door Comes Off the Rails

No matter what kind of door you have, it will be operated by sliding it along rails by the means of rollers. If your door has been damaged, or otherwise gotten old enough, it could cause the door to detach from the railing. This makes opening and closing the door a much tougher feat. Opening and closing your door smoothly is critical, which is why you should get your door repaired if it ever comes off the rails.

The Door is Being Noisy

A garage door will naturally make some level of noise while in operation, but the amount of noise (and type of noise) you hear should be consistent each time you use it. Perhaps, however, you’ve noticed that your door is much louder than normal. Maybe it’s starting to make sounds that you haven’t heard in the past. If this is the case, you should get a professional diagnosis of your door and determine how best to repair it.
