Not all garage doors are designed the same. They are available in different kinds and styles. Some appear more contemporary, while others are more traditional. But no matter how great the design is, if your door isn’t installed correctly, you will have a hard time operating it.
Were your garage doors installed poorly? Here’s how you can tell:
Garage door stops or closes halfway up
This usually happens when the spring is broken. Faulty extension or torsion springs are a common problem faced by garage doors. They cause the door to operate slower than it usually does. Sometimes it’s simply a poor quality spring. Other times, it’s the poor installation. Poorly installed springs tend to wear n tear, or break more easily.
Garage door is sometimes difficult to operate
Does your door operate in a rough manner and bounce when closing? You might be having issues with the pulleys. They might be damaged or installed poorly. Worn out pulleys, damaged cables, and bent tracks can also cause other problems such as the door jamming shut.
Garage door does not open or close at all
If your door won’t move, there’s likely to be an issue with the main drive gear. A plastic gear is supposed to come in contact with the drive gear on the motor. When this does not happen because of poor installation, the garage door can’t budge, and the motor makes a strange grinding sound.
Garage door goes back up after the wall button is hit
If you have to hold the button down in order for your door to close all the way, you’re facing sensor malfunction. Make sure the sensors’ LED lights are not flickering when they’re on. Poor installation can lead to more severe issues, such as circuit board problems. If the problems persist, we strongly recommend calling a professional garage door repair company.
