Noisy Garage Door
Noisy garage doors are one of the most annoying things one could come across of especially for those who have to sleep above or next to a garage door- thanks to the room location – but not anymore, because there are 3 ways available to reduce and stop the noise of your garage door and to keep it from disruption creation.
Let’s now have a look at the 3 simple ways that could help you in noise reduction of your door;
Tight the Nuts
You have to tighten all the nuts up to an appropriate level; over tighten or loose nuts would contribute towards noise creation. Therefore you would have to opt out for a moderate approach to set things up.
Replace your Metal Rollers
Another source of noise in garage door could be considered, rollers. As rollers move upward or downward on the metal track, they then tend to make noise. Therefore, you have to keep a check on them if they are worn out then it is better to replace them.
Moreover, you can also use nylon rollers instead of metal ones to reduce the amount of noise being generated by movement of rollers over the track.
Caution: Garage doors use two different spring systems; extension springs at the upper tracks and torsion springs to the header. If you have used torsion springs then do not attempt replacement of the bottom bracket on your own. Because doing so could cause you serious injury. Therefore, leave this job to the professionals at New Castle Garage Doors.
Hinges which houses the roller stem could also wear out followed by noise creation. Therefore, it would be better if you inspect all the holes in hinges and then replace them if required in order to reduce your garage door noise
