FAQs -Costa Mesa Garage Door Repair Pros

Welcome to our FAQs page, your go-to resource for addressing questions related to residential and commercial garage door repairs. Explore practical and valuable information to guide you through common concerns.

What tools will I need for repairs?

Different garage door parts may require specific tools for repairs, but basic tools like a screwdriver are sufficient for regular inspections and some repairs. It's essential to avoid attempting repairs on all parts without proper knowledge. For instance, damaged garage door tracks should not be fixed by simply banging with a hammer. Instead, use gloves and protective gear.

Is the weight of my new garage door important to the other parts?

Yes, the weight of your new garage door significantly affects the efficiency of other parts, especially those delivering force. For example, transitioning from aluminum overhead doors to wooden ones may require a switch from extension springs to torsion springs or a combination of both. Additionally, a more powerful opener is needed to handle the increased weight and ensure smooth movement.

Is garage door opener installation safe to DIY?

While many homeowners opt for DIY projects to save costs, installing a garage door opener can be done safely with basic tools and knowledge, along with guidance from the user's manual. It's crucial to follow the proper procedures to ensure safety during installation, as advised by our garage door experts in Tustin.

How do I eliminate the noise my garage door makes when opening/closing?

The noise during garage door operation is often caused by misaligned or unlubricated mechanical parts. Check the alignment of your tracks, as misalignment can lead to squeaky rollers or a bumpy door movement. Additionally, invest in proper lubrication, using either a specially made garage door lubricant or white lithium grease to ensure smooth and quiet operation.

What are common signs that my garage door needs professional attention?

Look out for signs such as irregular movements, slow response to commands, or unusual noises during operation. If you notice sagging sections, frayed cables, or gaps in the weather stripping, it's advisable to seek professional assistance promptly. Regular inspections can help identify issues early and prevent more extensive repairs.
