In the first part of this series we started looking and what could be causing your garage door to make noises. Today we will conclude with part two.
The garage door springs could also be the cause of the noise. Garage doors have several different types of springs that could need replacing. There are extension springs found above the tracks above the door. You will see them on both sides of the doors. Some garage doors have torsion springs. You should never try to replace or remove these springs on your own. They are under a great amount of pressure, and can be extremely dangerous for a do-it-yourselfer to repair or replace. Call Fort Worth Garage Doors to have a professional handle it for you safely and quickly.
It could also be the hinges that are causing the problem. As with all parts of a door, the hinges will wear down over time and need additional lubrication. The hinges could be causing the noise whenever the door opens and closes. Check the hinges to see if it appears that they need a replacement or just a bit of lubricant.
Is Your Garage Door Still Too Loud?
If you’ve taken these steps and found that the garage still seems too loud, it could simply be the reverberation of the opening and closing seeming loud in the garage. Some choose to insulate the tracks with rubber to help cut down on the noise.
