How to Make Your Garage Door Stop Squeaking

There’s nothing quite like the unsettling screech of a garage door disrupting your morning routine. While it might seem like a minor annoyance, a squeaky door can indicate underlying issues. Thankfully, our team at Advanced Door is here to identify the noise and help you achieve smooth, silent operation once again.

The Usual Suspects:

Several culprits can be behind your door’s squeaks. Let’s explore the most common:

  • Lack of Lubrication: Just like any moving part, garage door components need lubrication to reduce friction and noise. Over time, lubricant dries out, leading to those telltale squeaks.
  • Worn Rollers and Hinges: The rollers that guide your door along the track and the hinges that connect panels can wear down with constant use, squeaking as they move.
  • Loose Hardware: Screws and bolts can loosen, causing vibration and squeaking in the door’s frame and tracks.
  • Spring Issues: In rare cases, worn or broken springs can create squeaking or grinding noises.

Solving the Squeak:

Don’t worry, restoring peace and quiet to your garage is within reach! Here’s what we recommend.

DIY Solutions:

  • Lubricate: Use a silicone-based spray lubricant on rollers, hinges, and other moving parts. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions and avoid over-lubricating.
  • Tighten Hardware: Check all screws and bolts for tightness and ensure they’re secure.
  • Clean: Remove any dirt or debris accumulated on the tracks and rollers, as these can also contribute to squeaking.

Professional Help:

  • Technician Inspection: If the issue persists or seems more complex, schedule a professional inspection. Our trained technicians can diagnose the root cause and recommend the appropriate solution.
  • Replacement Parts: Worn rollers, hinges, or springs may need replacement for optimal performance and noise reduction.
  • Maintenance Plan: Consider a preventative maintenance plan to stay ahead of potential issues and ensure your garage door operates smoothly for years to come.

Remember, ignoring a squeaky garage door can lead to more significant problems down the line. By addressing the noise early on, you can save yourself time, money, and unnecessary stress.
