Should I Repair or Replace my Garage Door?

If you have a garage door that isn’t working as well as it used to, you might be wondering whether it needs a simple repair or a full replacement. Our team at our garage doors company in Somerset have put together a handy guide of tell-tale signs to help you determine whether you need garage door repair or replacement. From roller to automatic garage doors and more, we’ve got you covered.

Signs Your Garage Door Need Repairing

There are certain problems that you might encounter with your garage door in Somerset, which can vanish with a quick fix by our team. If you notice any of these signs, we’ll be happy to help you make your garage door look and feel as good as new.

An Automatic Garage Door Stops Working

If you suddenly notice that your automatic garage doors in Somerset will not open, you may simply resort to a complete replacement without looking into it further. But breakdowns are actually easier to fix than you might think.

Firstly, always check the batteries in your garage door remote before calling a professional. At Notaro Windows, we can diagnose the problem causing your automatic garage door to stop working and repair it straight away.

Your Garage Door Feels Heavy

Single and double garage doors contain springs to help you lift the door much more easily. If your garage door feels heavier than usual, it is possible that the springs are worn down and are unable to hold the weight of your garage door. Thankfully, worn garage door springs are a quick fix that won’t break the bank and will change the feel of your door for the better.

Your Garage Door Is Sagging

You might notice that your garage door looks imbalanced, so when one side looks lower than the other when the door is partially open. This often means that your garage door’s lifting mechanism has experienced increased pressure and wear & tear. Luckily, a professional can easily replace the lifting mechanism and ensure your garage door is fully balanced once again.


Signs Your Garage Door Needs Replacing

If you are experiencing the same problems over and over again with your garage door or damage has gone beyond repair, it is recommended that you consider replacing your garage door. Notaro Windows install a variety of high-quality garage doors in Somerset with a professional service and affordable prices.

Your Garage Door Hasn’t Been Right for a While

It is often safer and more cost-effective to replace a garage door that is experiencing the same problem consistently for a long period of time. When a small issue gets ignored, such as a problem with the lifting mechanism, then it’s likely that the damage increased significantly and it’s time to replace your garage door. It’s always best to get any small problems looked at as soon as possible if you want to avoid garage door replacement.
