REPAIRING THE GARAGE DOOR ROLLER AND TRACKS

The rollers and tracks in a garage door are used to ensure that the door moves smoothly when opened and when lowered. The tracks may be affected by rust in case they are not galvanized, clogged mud which causes the annoying noises formed.

This process of repairing the rollers that help the door to move up and down only involves getting the right size of the roller depending on what type of door and the size of the track. Ensure the diameter is a bit smaller than the tracks to enable movement. They come in different materials with the steel rollers being the most durable, but nylon rollers have a better noise-cancellation ability.

REPAIRING THE GARAGE DOOR OPENERS

You want your door to open up swiftly and efficiently when you want to come in. However, this opener should also be sophisticated enough to provide more security. The garage door usually gets faulty when you close them with something obstructing the track.

A good opener which is either remotely controlled or using a wireless keypad should be able to stop in case there is something on the way.

There are three main types of door openers: Screw drive, chain drive, and the belt-drive garage door openers. Depending on what kind of opener the door has, some have more moving parts and prone to getting worn out faster than others. It is essential to use an opener which you can operate manually in case of a power-cut.
