Creating A Functional Home

Do you love being in your home? A few years ago, I realized that my home was a little lackluster, which is why I started focusing on making things right by working with a team of construction contractors. I wanted to create an absolutely beautiful home interior, so I met with a team of professionals to talk about my construction options. They were really incredible to work with, and within a few short months, my home looked brand new. I wanted to create a blog all about creating a functional, gorgeous home so that you can adore your indoors space.

Garage Door Having Problems? Why You May Need Repair Or Replacement

Do you currently have a garage door for your business? While it may be operating perfectly fine right now, over time the door can start showing signs of wear and tear. This can lead to needing the garage door repaired or replaced entirely. Here are some reasons to watch out for when the garage door starts showing trouble signs.


When you activate a garage door, the motor will start to hum, and the door will jerk slightly once the motor kicks on. The door should never stop during its ascent or descent since it should move smoothly until it comes into its final position. Be on the lookout for any stuttering during the opening or closing operation, since it is a sign that the door is having trouble. The problem may be as simple as needing lubrication, but it can also indicate that the motor is dying.

Responding Slowly or Intermittently

Pay attention to how the garage door responds when you activate it, either using a remote control or physical button that is hardwired. Be concerned if you see any indications of the door being slow to respond or does not always respond to the first button press. For instance, you may notice that the distance that the remote works from is getting shorter and shorter, and you now have to be very close to the garage door to activate it.

This problem could be as simple as replacing the batteries in the remote, which will give it the strength it needs to respond to every button press from far distances. It can also be an indication that the receiver in the motor is damaged and needs to be replaced.

Door Damage

You should also be mindful of physical damage that has been caused to the door. It may be working right now, but damage can cause problems that extend to other parts of the garage door. For instance, if someone ran into the garage door and created a dent, that can have a ripple effect on other parts. It can put more stress on the motor trying to lift the door, cause hinges to break, and even cause the casters to become damaged from excessive force being put on them.

If you have physical damage to your garage door, have those parts replaced immediately. It could help extend the life of your garage door for many years and prevent the need for unnecessary early replacement. For more information, contact your local commercial garage doors service.
