3 Garage Door Repair Myths Busted

Publication date:
November 18, 2018
Article Summary: 

This article discusses three common myths about garage door repair and the dangers of believing them. The first myth is that garage doors are not complicated, and thus should be easy to repair. However, garage doors have a complex system of springs, cables, rollers, bearings, and hinged panels that must work in perfect balance. The second myth is that repairing a squeaky garage door is easy. Putting oil in the roller tracks can make the problem worse and cause the garage door to go out of balance, which can be costly to repair. The third myth is that if one spring breaks, you only need to replace that one. In reality, both springs should be replaced to keep the garage door balanced. The article emphasizes that garage door repairs should be handled by professionals for safety and to save money.
