Think about the Stress on Your Garage Door When You Need a Repair

May 29, 2016

If you left your house in your vehicle once a day for a year, the garage door would go up 730 times for you to pull out and down 730 times to close. Of course multiple drivers, trips or other occurrences such as getting out tools or a mower would quickly increase that number.

That is a lot of wear and tear when you consider the weight of the garage door. Yet, of all the maintenance on your home, the garage door is probably not on the list of things you think about. And until you go to open or close the door – and can't, there may not be too much to be concerned with for this part of your home.

When it is not operating as expected, you may be facing one of these common garage door repairs for your Tulsa area home:

Broken Springs – There are a lot of reasons the springs might break, rendering the garage door inoperable, but once they do it is essential to call in a professional who is familiar in managing the pressure those springs can be under to get the repair completed safely.

Cables – It can be difficult to troubleshoot if it is the cable or spring that is actually broken if the door cannot be opened or closed – and without an expert opinion, event troubleshooting can be dangerous.

Garage Door Openers – It may seem simple enough to pull out the owner’s manual for your garage door opener and troubleshoot the problem yourself. Unless you are familiar with the operation and details, a simple call to a professional can get the problem resolved correctly and in less time.

Although many garage doors repairs may seem simple enough to examine and correct, there are many reasons to consider calling in a professional. While a door is being repaired, it is essential to try to prevent it from falling or closing quickly and creating more damage as well as placing people and property in danger. It is also necessary to respect the danger in the springs and cables.
