4 Signs Your Roll Up Commercial Garage Door Needs New Hardware

Roll up commercial garage doors can last decades, but as they near the end of their service life, you’ll start to notice more problems with their operation and functioning. Compared to new roll up commercial garage doors, older doors can have service problems and noise issues that makes using them difficult.

1. Loud Noises

Loud noises are a sign that the parts in your roll up garage door are degraded, rusted, or simply not working as well as they used to. The noises might be coming from the motor, which could be a sign of worn gears or a worn chain. While it’s possible that lubricating the system could help, if the parts need to be replaced, lithium grease is not the solution. Your garage door contractor can tell you for sure what you need.

2. Frequent Repairs Needed

A garage door that breaks more than once every few years is costing more money than it’s worth. Over time, you’ll spend more on repairs than you would on the hardware replacement. You’ll have to decide for yourself whether it’s worth it to keep making small repairs or to finally replace the parts that are not serving you well, but a good garage door contractor can give advice if you need it. Work with a contractor you can trust, who won’t push you to make repairs that are unnecessary.

3. Energy Inefficient

Older garage door openers are not as efficient as new garage door openers, and they can use a lot of energy each time they’re used. If you’re opening and closing your garage door every day, or multiple times per day, you could save money by replacing your opener, and possibly the door. Find out from your contractor whether your system is inefficient.

4. Corrosion and Rust is Visible

If your garage has experienced leaks or is in a high-humidity environment, you may start to see rust and corrosion on the visible parts. This rust may eventually cause your garage door to malfunction at a very inconvenient time. Have your roll up commercial garage door assessed by your contractor to find out whether replacement parts can keep your door opening and closing reliably.

I was given a very fair quote. A week later a tech came and installed. Then came back to install lock. Tech was very professional and polite. Spen time with me making adjustments to my liking. I totally recommend Overhead door to my fellow Okies.

Overhead Door did a great job. They got me on the schedule the next day and fixed my spring in 30 minutes or less. Joe was great, professional, and courteous. Awesome service, and he didn't tell me I needed extra materials like the previous garage door people that quoted me $575. Overhead Door told me a price over the phone and it didn't change. I'd recommend them every time.

Pleased with their services. Coil spring broke and door stopped working. Spoke to Ron, and less than 24 hrs later the technician had us up n running again. These guys did exactly what they promised to do, with no nonsense. I like that.

I had called overhead doors because there was something wrong with my door. I had no clue what was wrong. The door technician they sent out was Amazing. He was fast pace,clean,organized and also showed/told me what all he was doing. Derick S. Is the reason why I will keep going back to them. He made sure he cleaned up his mess before leaving, he really went above and beyond. Request Derick for your service.
