Garage doors are an excellent part of our growing technology, but one of the most significant problems is that a lot can go wrong when you expect something to work when you press a button. You also want to trust the door to provide adequate protection for your property. As great as automatic garage doors can be, you need to know what to do when something goes wrong.

If you have a problem with your garage door, these are some of the issues that could be causing it. Here's what you should consider.

Garage Door Spring Issues

A common problem that develops over time is with garage door springs, which may require adjustments over time. Both extension and torsion springs can face problems that require more adjustments, and the problem often manifests in a door that hangs crookedly or will not open all the way.

Garage Door Roller Issues

The rollers are another common issue. The rollers may fail to glide on the tracks, which means that you might hear the garage door as it works to open. This happens when the rollers become bent or broken over time.  A garage door technician may replace the rollers.

Garage Opener Issues

Sometimes the problem is actually quite simple. In fact, sometimes it's a matter of a dead battery in a garage door opener. If you change your batteries and your opener still doesn't work, you may have an electronic issue with a sensor.

Garage Door Sealing Issues

Another very common problem you might have is that your garage door leaks. You might have a heavy rain and then get a bunch of water working its way into the room. This can be a major problem if you are dealing with bad weather frequently. The good news is that you can seal your garage door with better weather stripping, creating a garage door that actually protects your property. Of course, the issue could also be more serious, requiring a technician to ensure you don't have something else wrong.

Garage Sensor Issues

Another common issue presents as the door closing before popping back up. It may then begin to close again, or it could remain open. Often, this is the result of a sensor that has a problem. Something is setting off the sensor to make the garage door think somebody or something is underneath it.

Consult With a Garage Door Repair Technician

Even if you think you know what the problem is, it is important that you discuss the matter with a professional. A garage door technician can provide you with the information you need to fix the problem.
