What Garage Door Parts Should You Know As A Homeowner?

BellySnapTomorrow is the first day of summer, which means we can expect the temperatures to increase as the days get longer. If you have not already had any maintenance performed on your garage door whether performed by a professional garage door repair company or yourself, now would be the “better” time to add it to your busy schedule.  Don’t wait until it gets too hot, as the heat will make checking your garage door opener, springs, and any other part, very uncomfortable.

It is also important to understand that your garage door is the largest moving part in your home. This means that within a garage door, there are many other parts that range in different sizes and each piece requires attention from the homeowner and a professional garage door company, every few months or as needed.

Over time, normal wear and tear occurs, as a result of using the garage door daily. Garage door parts, such as the garage door, springs, cables, and tracks, can begin to function differently or in worst case scenarios, not at all if dirty, obstructed, or damaged. Most of these issues can be fixed by replacing the piece with a new part. Although, the difficulty of the repair will depend on the particular garage door part that is in need of fixing/replacing. For example, broken springs should only be handled by the professionals! Below is a list of garage door parts that you should be able point out:

  1. Weather Seal
  2. Springs
  3. Tracks
  4. Garage Door Remote
  5. Garage Door Opener
