Having trouble lifting your garage door recently? Does your door seem heavier than it used to be? The problem may be a broken torsion spring, a misalignment, safety sensor, bad contacts, or another problem that can come with an aging door opener. Check out our FAQ page and if you need service, just give us a call.
The most probably culprit is your weather-stripping. You can check to see if the weather stripping is intact. If it's a little old, it may already be brittle and cracked thereby providing little protection from a heavy rain. If you have sectional doors, you can also check to see if the spaces between doors are impervious to water.
No. Our experts strongly advise against this. While automatic garage doors can typically be operated with a push of a button, there could be unexpected malfunctions that may lead to accidents. Children love playing around the house, but the garage is one place you should never let them play unattended.
A twisted track can still be repaired, but it will depend on the amount of damage done. Our experts here at Garage Door Repair Camarillo can determine whether it can still be fixed or if they need to be replaced.
Use of a high quality lubricant can be enough to maintain your door. Keep in mind that it should only be used on specific parts such as the hinges, and that you need to do this at least once a year.
