Are you hearing strange garage door sounds? Those sounds are definitely trying to tell you something! Garage door sounds can provide vital clues about what is going on with your garage door.

When was the last time you had your garage door serviced? It’s important to address any unusual garage door sounds right away by calling in garage door specialists like the team at Eastern Garage Doors. 

In this article, we’ll explain what could be behind those strange garage door sounds you’re experiencing. 

What causes strange garage door sounds? 

There are many possible causes of garage door sounds. Sometimes it’s the garage door motor struggling, other times garage door sounds indicate that the springs in your garage door aren’t at the correct tension. In order to diagnose the problem correctly, it’s best to get a professional out to look at your garage door. 

If it seems like your garage door opener or motor is making a lot more noise than usual, it could potentially be a sign that it needs to be replaced. Other times, it’s simply that the springs have worn down and aren’t tensioned correctly, causing the motor to work harder. 

If you think the motor sounds okay and it’s actually the door itself that is squealing and making a racket, that could be that the tracks are in dire need of lubrication or possibly your door has become misaligned, causing it to grind on the tracks.  

It’s also worth noting that as garage doors age they naturally become a bit noisier, especially if you haven’t had your garage door serviced in quite some time. All garage doors make some kind of noise, but when they are newer the noise tends to be not as noticeable. 

To keep your garage door functioning well and not making odd garage door sounds it’s best to have it serviced at least once per year (ideally twice!). Just like you get your car serviced regularly, garage doors need to be serviced regularly too. After all, it’s likely one of the most used doors in your home!
