4 Common Condominium Overhead Door Issues
Condominium overhead doors are the gateway to home for many! Opening and closing hundreds of times a day, they need to function smoothly; however, like many systems, overhead doors require maintenance, upgrade or replacement due to a number of issues.
With 60 years of experience in the industry, we at Begley Overhead Doors have seen and solved a range of different issues. For condominium overhead doors, we have compiled a list of the top four common issues.
1. Failure to Open
One of the more stressful issues to have is an overhead door that refuses to open or close. This problem typically has to do with the cable and spring systems installed with your overhead door. They are responsible for pulling the overhead door open and closing it.
Springs and cables are one of the many parts that can be regularly inspected and serviced to avoid a security issue occurring.
2. Damaged or Misaligned Tracks
In addition to springs and cables, overhead doors manoeuvre up and down with the help of two tracks on either side. These metal tracks can often get misaligned or damaged over time, impacting the overhead door’s ability to perform.
Tip! It is highly recommended to get an expert to thoroughly inspect your overhead door regularly. Doing regular inspections and maintenance on your overhead door helps to avoid major issues that can result in significant downtime or costly replacement. However, if you begin to notice shifts in your overhead door or uneven operation, immediately give an expert a call.
3. Unusual/Concerning Noises
If you begin to hear unusual, new noises as your overhead door opens or closes, don’t fret! This is could be a sign that there is debris or wear in the overhead door’s hardware. To avoid this, we recommend that you get your door’s hardware regularly inspected by a professional.
4. Electrical Issues
Oftentimes, an overhead door fails to function properly due to an electrical or mechanical issue with the operator. Your overhead door operator requires a regular inspection. Without it, it may struggle to function or will stop entirely.
