Should I Replace Or Repair My Garage Door?
The first time you experience a garage door problem, garage door repair is often the best solution. In many cases, wear and tear that accumulates over time affect garage door function. This type of damage usually requires maintenance or repairs to address. However, you should replace your garage door if you have had to call for garage door repair several times within recent memory. In that case, replacement may be the most cost-effective and reliable option.
What Factors Affect Garage Door Cost?
When purchasing a new garage door, several factors will affect cost. Size and material are two of the most significant determining characteristics when discussing price. For instance, wood, glass, and custom garage doors will cost more than steel, vinyl, and aluminum. If you need a new automatic door opener, this will add to your garage door installation costs. However, it is essential to note that purchasing the best product within your price range offers long-term savings in terms of better insulation, energy savings, and system longevity.
How Do I Maintain My Garage Door?
Maintenance plays an integral part in your garage door’s reliability, appearance, and longevity. Contacting a maintenance company for periodic tune-ups is one of the best ways to keep your garage door in great shape. Additionally, there are a few simple tasks you can perform to care for your garage door. These include washing the exterior to keep it clean and using an appropriate lubricant to keep chains, wheels, and other moving parts working smoothly. It also helps to use a broom or leaf blower to keep the tracks clear of debris.
What Does My Garage Door Warranty Cover?
Our garage door warranties cover installations our company has done typically within the last year.
How Often Should I Have My Garage Door Serviced?
To keep your garage door in top condition, you should have it professionally serviced twice a year. You can also perform preventative maintenance to ensure your garage door is functioning at optimal levels. Lubricate door tracks. Tighten bolts and screws. Adjust spring tension. By taking these steps every month, you can prolong your garage door system’s life and adequately prepare for the colder winter months.
Is It Safe For Me To Repair My Own Garage Door Spring?
Your garage door has loaded springs and a weighted door. Working with these components without the right training and experience can lead to bodily injury and thousands of dollars in additional repair costs and replacements. Improper handling of the springs and mechanisms could permanently damage your entire system. It is best to have an experienced technician work with all of your garage door elements – extension springs, torsion springs, and the opener – to ensure the highest safety levels and the best results.
Can I Remove Components And Have You Replace Them?
Removing any hardware from your garage door setup is risky. We do not recommend removing anything, especially if it is part of the spring or counterbalance system. When you are concerned about what can and cannot be touched or removed, call Aquarius Door Services.

Why Is My Garage Door Noisy?
Several possible factors contribute to a noisy garage door. The first is the rollers. Without proper lubrication, garage door rollers can squeak or grind on their way up or down. Other components that may create unusual sounds are your garage door springs. A broken spring can make very loud noises if not correctly connected to the rest of the system. Your door’s hinges may also be the culprit. See if they are worn out, broken, or blocked by dirt or debris. If the door is not the issue, perhaps the door opener is at fault. Loose chains or drive belts can affect the quiet operation of your opener system and cause loud noises. Trained professionals should address any additional noisy, persistent issues.
