We Can Fix Your Noisy Garage

Do you ever wonder how loud is too loud when it comes to your automatic garage door? Perhaps you’ve just lived with your noisy garage door for years or maybe you’re noticing that the sounds are suddenly different or louder. Whatever your situation, it may be time to call Precision Door Service. We provide noisy garage door repair in Los Angeles.

Our trained professionals can come out and inspect your garage door, give it a little tune-up, or perform any needed repairs that may turn that noise down to a minimum. Having a professional check out your garage door will also prevent potentially larger and more costly problems down the road.

A noisy garage door can be caused by problems with one of the many working parts of a door including the garage door opener, an unbalanced or off track garage door, worn or broken springs or hinges, loose hardware, parts that need lubrication, or other normal wear and tear.

Born to Be Loud 

The first potential cause of a noisy garage door is simply its design. Some less expensive doors trade a lower price for a louder operation. Check out these different types of opening systems and see what the balance is between sound, functionality and cost.

  • Chain Drive. As the least expensive option, the chain drive system is the most common door and the loudest. It can be a reasonable choice for a detached garage.
  • Belt Drive. By replacing a chain with a belt, you increase your cost but significantly decrease your noise level.
  • Screw Drive. This system is in between a chain and belt drive system in terms of noise, but contains fewer parts and therefore less maintenance.

Problematic Noise Makers 

Some common reasons for noisy garage doors include:

  • Opener problems. Although certain models of garage door openers are naturally louder, others may become louder when there is a problem with the motor.
  • Roller damage. If your garage door rollers are bent, they will create more noise as they try to move along their tracks.
  • Spring issues. Over time, the springs in your garage door may become rusted or worn down, which can cause additional noise when operating.
  • Improper balance. In some cases, your garage door will be off balance and create a lot of noise as a result. This is an important issue to address because, over time, an imbalanced door can cause an automatic garage door to stop working.
  • Loose hardware. Similar to any mechanical system, parts become loose and worn over time. Any one of many parts may need tightening, lubricating or maintaining to keep them running smoothly and quietly.
