Commercial Garage Door Problems

If your commercial garage door isn’t working the way it should, it can compromise your ability to run your business. Depending on the problem, your commercial garage door may need to be repaired or replaced. Explore the most common problems with commercial garage doors and what to do about them.

Worn Out Torsion Spring

Many commercial garage doors use a torsion spring system. When the spring is old, worn, or otherwise damaged, it won’t be able to lift or lower the door. You may notice that the garage door doesn’t fully close or open. Fortunately, the fix is pretty simple: with a new torsion spring, the commercial garage door will resume its usual operation.

Damaged Rollers

Garage door rollers take on a lot of wear and tear as they open and close the door. If dirt and debris become stuck in the tracks, it can prevent the commercial garage door from operating properly. Delaying on replacing old or worn-out rollers will cause damage to other parts of the commercial garage door, including the motor and tracks, so it’s important that you act promptly. Expect to replace garage door rollers as part of routine maintenance for your commercial garage door and keep an eye out for symptoms. If the garage door isn’t properly opening or makes a scraping or scratching sound when it opens, it’s time to have a specialist out.

Tracks Fall Out of Alignment

If the tracks of your commercial garage door take on damage or become misaligned, the door won’t open or close correctly. If the issue is minor, a technician may be able to adjust the track so everything runs smoothly. If the issue is extensive, you’ll probably need to replace the tracks.

Damaged Panel

If a panel on your garage door takes on damage, perhaps from a storm or an accident, you face two choices: repair or replace. In many cases, you can replace a single panel to restore the integrity of the door. If the garage door is old or doesn’t meet your business needs, this can be a good excuse to replace the commercial garage door.

Cables Wear Out

Commercial garage doors operate using several cables, including extension springs, torsion springs, and safety cables. While these cables are designed to be tough, they can eventually wear out, just like other parts of the overhead door. They often show signs of wear and tear, such as fraying, as they reach the end of their lifespan. Other times, the door itself seems to shake as it opens or closes. Since damaged cables can eventually break and make the door non-operational, it’s important that you call a service technician as soon as you notice these warning signs.

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.
