Dealing with garage door faults and issues

The Garage Door Company Scotland

When you invest in a high-quality garage door and have it professionally installed and maintained, you expect it to last for years without any major issues. However, like any mechanical system, garage doors are subject to wear and tear over time. At The Garage Door Company, we understand the importance of keeping your garage door in optimal condition, which is why we’re here to help you address common problems and faults that may arise. We don’t just install garage doors in southern Scotland – we maintain and repair them too.

One of the most prevalent issues with garage doors in southern Scotland appears to be damage to the springs. These components endure significant strain each time the door is opened or closed, making them susceptible to wear and tear. Rust, lack of lubrication, and neglected door jams can all contribute to spring damage. If you notice signs of wear or breakage in your springs, it’s crucial to have them replaced promptly by a professional.

Another common problem with garage doors in southern Scotland lies with garage door tracks and rollers. These parts also experience heavy usage and can wear out over time. Regular replacement of rollers – say, every five years – is recommended, in order to prevent potential damage to the door’s operation. Our garage doors experts at our branches in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Kilmarnock and Dundee are well adept at carrying out such work.

Issues with automated garage doors not closing properly are often attributed to misaligned safety sensors. Simply adjusting the sensors can usually resolve this problem, ensuring the door operates safely and efficiently.

Furthermore, noisy garage doors, characterised by squeaks or grinding sounds, are a common annoyance. Regular lubrication of hinges and motor rails can often eliminate these noises, but persistent issues may require professional inspection and repair.

Our repair and spare parts service ensures that your garage door remains in excellent working condition, maximising its lifespan and your peace of mind.
