Six Common Commercial Garage Door Issues

1) Remote Control Issues

Solution: Check the remote itself for faulty parts or power connections. Additionally, you can try reprogramming the controller.

2) Old or Damaged Torsion Spring

Solution: This is a repair best left to the pros as it often requires replacing an entire spring by removing the door to access it.

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: If possible, replace damaged panel or section versus the entire garage door

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.
