Why Is Your Garage Door Noisy?

Often, loud garage door operation is caused by a loud opener (usually older), but this isn’t the only source of the problem. Other potential causes include:

  • Worn down rollers
  • Worn down hinges
  • Worn down opener gears and sprockets
  • Loose hardware
  • Squeaky or broken hinges
  • Rollers, bearings, hinges and springs that aren’t lubricated enough
  • Opener chain that is out of adjustment

What You Can Do

To help reduce garage door problems like noisy operation, homeowners get professional maintenance and service. This helps ensure your garage door is safe and in top condition.

A professional can inspect your garage door and determine the source of the problem, whether it’s loose hardware that’s causing a loud rattling sound or simply an old garage door opener that needs to be replaced. In fact, 15 or 20 years is a good lifespan for openers. If yours is any older than that, it may not have more modern, advanced safety and technology features, such as safety sensors and rolling code technology.
