Six Common Commercial Garage Door Issues

1) Remote Control Issues

Solution: Check the remote itself for faulty batteries. Once replaced, you can try reprogramming the remote.

2) Old or Damaged Torsion Spring

Solution: This is a repair best left to the pros. This is the one of the most dangerous repairs, as the garage door springs have extreme tension and help lift these heavy doors.

3) Worn or Damaged Rollers

Solution: Aim to keep your rollers and their tracks free from debris consistently and frequently inspect for wear and tear. If you identify a worn roller, consult with a garage door repair pro for service.

4) Worn or Damaged Cables

Solution: As with the torsion spring and rollers, inspect your cables regularly and immediately call for professional service if worn out or broken.

5) Damaged Section or Panel

Solution: Replacing damaged sections can be a more economical solution when compared to replacing an entire door. Keep in mind, however, a new door will offer better warranty options.

6) Improper Alignment

Solution: Visually inspect for gaps between the rails, bent, or curved metal. If you spot them, you’ll want to reach out to a commercial garage door specialist for repairs.
