Garage Door Max Repair & Install

Garage Door Max | Repair & Installation Services

Garage doors are an integral part of our home.

They are not only for aesthetics, but also for safety.

If you are looking for the best garage door installation, replacement, and repair in Kitchener,  then check us out at Garage Door Max. 

We offer the best prices for high-quality services.

It is true that because we use them several times a day, the continuous opening and closing put a lot of strain on garage doors.

This repetitive motion can make them more susceptible to damages and problems.

Our garage doors have this complex mechanism; when one part of this mechanism fails, it can affect the doors’ whole systemic operation.

It might even lead to total garage door replacement, which can be equally expensive as having them installed.

Fear not, for here are common problems and simple tips on garage door repair that you can just wing with DIY or Do-It-Yourself.

Annoying and Screeching Noise When Garage Door is Activated?

Squeaky sections, loose hardware, or shabby parts are the most common complaints or problems.

They cause the most annoying, screeching noise that can ruin the day.

Although it is the most common, it is also one of the most manageable problems when it comes to garage doors.

Most often than not, these noises that seemingly come out of nowhere can be a sign that your garage door needs lubrication.

When this happens, try applying a generous amount of silicon-based lubricant or use some good old garage door spray lube directly on the squeaky part.

If that does not solve the problem, it may be best to contact us, and we will check it for you.

Garage Door Opens by Itself?

The garage door’s ghost opening might indicate that there is something wrong with the door’s mechanism. 

To fix this, we can try doing any of these two steps. 

First, we check for debris. 

Garage doors have several safety features, and one of them is the sensors found on the sides of the garage door opening.

These sensors work to make sure that nothing uncanny gets stuck underneath the door every time it closes. 

When your garage door is opening by itself after closing, you might want to clear any debris and particles such as dust build-up that the sensor is conveniently picking up.

Second, check for radio interference.

Believe it or not, our garage doors use radio frequency for their opening and closing function.

Yes, even when we are using our remote opener, passcode entry, or just the mere buttons inside the garage itself.

Other devices also use radio frequency to operate like the police or CB radio and even our neighbor’s garage door.

In an instance where your neighbor’s garage door has been accidentally programmed to the same frequency as yours, it might be the reason why your garage door opens by itself.

Whenever the neighbors’ open their garage door, it might cause yours to open too!

To solve this, you can just reset your garage door openers.

However, if it does not fix the problem, it may be best to consult us at Garage Door Max for professional advice.

Gaps and Cracks

Having cracks, especially in wooden doors, is a common problem. 

A simple remedy to these cracks to keep them from worsening is using a waterproof sealant or filler to fill the cracks.

However, if the gaps and cracks can be found in the weather sealant, you might need to replace it with a new one.

Weather sealant is an essential part of your garage door, as they keep the water out.

Not only that, but these weather sealants help in sealing air leaks as well as reduce street noise.

Damaging Rust Formation

Rusting does not only damage your door, aesthetic wise.

It also compromises your garage doors’ ability to prevent particle build-up from external elements.

After being exposed to air or water for a long time, iron can be susceptible to rust formation.

If this happens, you can remove it by these simple steps.

First, you should clean the affected area with dishwashing soap.

Next, scrub the rust using a cloth soaked in any type of vinegar.

You might not know it, but vinegar is a natural remedy that removes rust.

Lastly, you can sand the rusted part, and if it does not render your warranty invalid, you can also apply a coat of primer and a brand new paint.

It does not only solve your rust problem but can also give your garage door a brand new look.

Just a little reminder: All of the tips we mentioned above should be done at your own disposal.
