Garage Door Repair Richmond VA | Amelia Overhead Doors | (804) 561-5979

Garage doors have many moving parts which allow them to function properly and efficiently. All mechanical items that are continuously used on a daily basis will need repair or service at some point. It is important to know the signs of wear on your garage door so that when your garage door is in need of general maintenance, repair, or partial or complete replacement that service can be done before the problem is bigger than it needs to be. It is also important that this service be performed a professional, as poor service work can result in a much higher cost to repair or even a premature need for replacement. Amelia Overhead Doors is the premier expert for Garage Door Repair Richmond VA and the surrounding areas.

A garage door that is properly functioning will open and close with no problems and with minimal noise. If there is difficulty with the door opening and closing smoothly or the door becomes stuck such that it will not open and close all the way or at all, the spring or opener may need to be replaced. Replacing a spring or opener on your garage door should always be done by a professional. Garage door springs are powerful and even with the right tools and knowledge the springs and opener can be dangerous to work on. Garage door springs and garage door openers come in a variety of different styles and sizes, but regardless of which type of spring and opener you have on your garage door, Amelia Overhead Doors is the premier expert for residential and commercial Garage Door Repair Richmond VA.

While keeping your garage door springs and openers in top condition is important, there are many other garage door components that may require service or replacement, including door sections and tracks. The track guides the door’s rollers as the door is lifted and lowered. Tracks which have become bent, folded, or even rusted can impede proper function of your garage door. Tracks may also become misaligned. Misalignment can occur from improper installation or being forcefully bumped into. Garage doors are also heavy and the tracks are what is supporting that weight, because of this tracks may also fall out of alignment through everyday use.

While a track may be only slightly misaligned, the potential issues can be major. A misaligned track can put additional strain on the garage door opener leading to premature burnout and replacement, it can cause the garage door to fall off of the track, and can even cause the door to fall altogether. Call Amelia Overhead Doors for Garage Door Repair Richmond VA if you notice any of these signs that your garage door track is not properly aligned:

  • Door Opening and Closing Speed Variance
    • If your garage door opens and closes faster or slower in certain spots.
  • Rubbing / Grinding Noise
    • If you hear a rubbing or grinding noise when your garage door is opening or closing.
  • Performance Variance
    • If your garage door occasionally displays a noticeable difference in performance compared to “normal” function.
  • Gaps Between Roller and Rail
    • If the rollers are raised from the track in any spot while opening or closing.

The best repair is the one that is done before the issue has a chance to become a major problem. This is one of the reasons garage doors typically come with a maintenance manual. While any service and repair should be handled by a professional, there is a checklist that you can perform each season to stay ahead of potential problems.

Visual Inspection Checklist (recommended monthly)

While your garage door is in the down position, visually inspect for:

  • Loose or bent hinges.
  • Broken wheels, bent shafts, or worn out bearings on rollers.
  • Loose or missing bolts, screws, or other fasteners on the door or track.
  • Creases or bends in the track.
  • Cracking or fatigue of the door panels.
  • Damaged or broken springs or spring components. If the spring looks broken it will need replacement.
  • Standard extension springs that run alongside the door should include a safety containment cable. For a visual of the safety containment cable and other components, watch these Clopay Garage Door Safety videos.
  • Worn or frayed cables.
  • Loose, cracked, or warped glass panels or inside glass retainers. Inside the door, the plastic retainer holding the glass and its fasteners should appear secure.
  • Tears or gaps in the bottom weather seal or perimeter seal.
  • Any covered, ripped, damaged, or missing warning labels.
  • Any missing, broken, loose, or malfunctioning door handles. Depending on the model of your door, there should be two lifting points on the outside and two lifting points on the inside of the door.

Door Operation Checklist (recommended twice per year and after visual inspection)

  • Check the balance of the door.
    • With the door in the down position, detach the opened (if applicable) by pulling down on the red manual release handle.
    • Lift the door manually up to the halfway point and gently release the door. A balanced door should hang in place and not raise or lower. If the door does not stay in place, contact Amelia Overhead Doors for adjustment.
  • Check the door operation.
    • Once you have determined your door is in balance, lift the door up and down to ensure smooth operation. The door should be easily controlled when lifting and lowering.
  • Check the safety feature for doors with automatic openers.
    • Make sure the operator has a working safety feature. Photo eyes should be mounted on the left and right sides of the bottom of the door opening.
    • Make sure any door locks are disabled or removed if the door has an automatic opener.
    • Retest following the opener manufacturer’s instructions.
