For the most part, most homeowners don’t give their garage doors a second thought, that is, until something’s not quite right. Say, for example, you’re raising your garage door to go out shopping, and you hear a noise coming from your garage door that you’ve never heard before. At the moment you hear the noise, you might dismiss it as weather-related, expanding, or contracting metal due to excesses of cold or heat. But, the sound may be a tell-tale sign that your garage door system needs attention.
There are a few garage door fixes that homeowners can easily do themselves if so inclined, but others should be left to the professionals. If you suddenly notice that your garage door isn’t operating as it should, one of the first things you can do is take a look at the rollers and tracks.
