Why Do Garages Stop Working?
For the most part, garage doors carry on just fine. Until out of the blue, your garage door doesn’t open, or worse, gets stuck halfway. While sometimes it may be a broken motor that’s to blame, other times the causes may not be as clear. Here are a few reasons why garage doors may stop working.
1. Snapped Springs
Even though broken springs are usually preventable, they’re unfortunately a main reason why we get called. That’s because without them, the garage door stops working altogether. The garage door is designed to operate on the tension created with the springs. Which means without the springs out of the picture, there’s not much hope in the garage doing a very good job.
A lot of the time, a garage door gets thrown off track due to an accident involving the door. What do you think is the most common culprit of this accidents? The cars that normally live in the garages. While most garage doors are pretty strong, a lot of them may not escape even a light tap by your vehicle unscathed.
3. Aging Components
By far, the primary reason why garage doors need service or repair, is due to normal wear and tear. If you think about it, most garage doors open and close twice per day. For every movement, there are quite a few parts working in unison. Needless to say, there’s plenty of opportunity for at least one of the parts to get thrown out of balance in the average week of a garage door.
