Inspect Your Raleigh Garage Doors!
Check your Raleigh garage door’s springs to make sure they are not broken or relaxed. If they are, call Hanson Overhead immediately. Don’t try to repair them alone. This job can be difficult and dangerous.
Next, check the cables that connect the springs to the garage door for fraying and loose fasteners. If you find anything suspicious about the springs or their cables also call a professional. Due to the high tension of the springs, it is too dangerous of a repair for anyone but our garage door repair specialists.
Check for loose panel-hinge screws and tighten. Check for obstructions in the rails. Check for damaged rollers. It might be best to have a professional replace any damaged rollers or hinges. If you decide to do it yourself, replace them one at a time and do not attempt replacing the bottom panel rollers as the spring cables are usually fastened to them.
As a final check, open and close your Raleigh garage doors a couple of times. If it operates smoothly with no unusual noise or effort, you are good to go.
Getting your garage door ready for summer is an important part of your spring cleaning and organizing! Don’t make the mistake of letting your garage doors go without care. You could end up with a worse problem, possibly resulting in the need for a new garage door installation.
