Our team at Coastal Contract Hardware understands that many commercial facilities need garage doors—after all, it’s easier to unload goods if the truck driver can pull up right to a loading bay equipped with a roll-up door. We also know that while commercial garage doors are designed to withstand heavy use, they are not immune to wear and tear and will occasionally need to be repaired.
In this article, our team will go over a few signs that indicate you may need garage door repair. If you notice any of the following things happening to the doors in your facility, we encourage you to give us a call.
- Excessive Noise- One sign that you need garage door repair is your door becoming louder than usual. While your garage door will always make some noise as it opens and closes, if that noise becomes noticeably louder than you are used to, you most likely have a problem. In addition, if your door starts to make grinding, rumbling, or popping sounds, we encourage you to call us right away to have us check out the issue.
- Sticking- If your garage door starts to slow down when opening or closing or gets stuck between positions, then something is definitely wrong with the mechanism. We encourage you to reach out to our team to have our experts inspect your door and determine what the problem is—from there, we can provide the effective garage door repair services you need.
- Increased Energy Bills- A third, more subtle sign that you need garage door repair can be found in your facility’s operating costs. Specifically, if you notice an increase in your energy bills but can’t think of any corresponding increase in your energy usage, the culprit may be your garage door. If the insulation in your garage door is failing, it will cause your facility’s HVAC system to work harder to maintain the temperature on the thermostat, leading to increased energy usage on your bill.
