The temperatures in Chicago are dropping and before it gets any colder, it’s imperative to make sure your garage door is working through the winter. Our Chicagoland garage builders have seen quite a few common issues that occur with garages. Make sure to look out for any of these problems and contact us today if you are having trouble fixing it.
Broken Garage Door Opener
If your garage door opener isn’t doing its job, this can be easily fixed. You can either refer to the garage door opener manual or contact one of our specialists to figure out the problem. We will make sure your door and opener are repaired safely and efficiently.
You Hear A Grinding Noise
This can happen due to either loose hardware, shabby parts, or a squeaky section. If you hear weird noises, consider lubricating directly on the squeaky parts and the problem may be fixed immediately.
Broken Weather Sealants
With the cold weather arriving, no one wants to have a cracked or broken weather sealant—it can lead to leaks and extra street noise. If you have a cracked or broken sealant, it may be time to replace it with a new one, found at any local hardware store.
The Door Opens And Then Closes Immediately
If this happens, one of your top springs may need to be replaced. We recommend replacing all the springs at the same time to save on costs and keep your garage working properly for a longer period of time.
