All You Have to Do is Listen

If you think about it your garage door is the largest moving object in your home and does the most work to allow you convenient access to your garage and your home. In fact it’s “Your Other Front Door”!

A simple and easy way to tell if you might need a garage door repair or service is to simply listen to the noise your garage door makes when opening and closing your door. Often before your garage door breaks altogether it will start making excessive noise and may even become jerky when operating.

Listening to your garage door opening and closing can let you know if your garage door opener is suddenly straining when opening or closing. This could be a  sign that the garage door springs may need adjustment or that you might even have a broken torsion spring system.
