Common Cause of Garage Door Damages

You don’t have to think about your garage door too often when you schedule regular maintenance service with Bob's Garage Doors. When your garage door is working optimally, it should open and close without any issue, unfortunately, things don’t always go as planned. Many things can go wrong with your garage door, it can suddenly get stuck, which can leave your entire home vulnerable to security threats. 

Never leave a garage door issue unattended to for long, little damages can quickly escalate into bigger problems, please contact Bob's Garage Doors as soon as you can. 

The Common Causes of Garage Door Damages

Most garage door problems will boil down to some few cases, these could be technical issues, obstruction, wear and tear of old components. Spring breakage perhaps is one of the commonest causes of garage door damages. Springs can break after continuous usage for a long time. Older springs are generally more susceptible to damage than newer springs. 

Cable breakage is another common cause of damages to a garage door. These are the lifting cables or wire ropes that may become brittle over a period of time. Once these cables begin to fray, they will eventually unwind and snap. 

The photo-eye issue can also lead to garage door damages. The photo-eye is that tiny sensor located on both sides of the garage door and few inches from the ground level. The photo-eye normally projects an invisible beam through the garage door to ensure that it does not shut on top of an object or person. This is an important safety feature that can become misaligned when an object knocks into it and disconnect the light beams. Bad weather and water can also enter the feature and damage the circuit.

If you notice any issue with your garage door cable, spring, or Photo Eye, please contact Bob’s Garage Doors.

Other Causes of Garage Door Damage You Must Take Care of

Electrical issues can cause damage to your garage door. Your garage door will likely require electricity to operate. The electrical fuse can blow, and the old, frayed wires may even get damaged. 

Wear and tear issues may also cause damage to your garage door. This can be caused by a number of things, for instance, the rollers can wear out, and will require replacement. 

Obstacles can also cause damage to the garage door because many people use their garages like storage units. Some of the items you pack in your garage can cause the door to knock over, accidentally, which means the door will not close properly again. 

If your garage door slides along a metal track, there can be misalignment and the door wouldn’t slide efficiently again.
