Worn Rollers Trigger Noisy Doors

Does your garage door make gunny noises all of a sudden? I might be the result of a worn roller or some loose pieces of hardware. You should use lubricants to easily take care of the problem. Make sure all worn nuts and bolts are replaced with new ones and buy a special lubricant spray you can spread over the moving parts of the door. Use a deep socket and a ratchet on all nuts and snug them up so that the bolt heads do not go through the door skin. If your garage door is a few years old, look at the unsealed bearings that might have been destroyed by dirt. Use nylon rollers that have sealed bearings to replace worn rollers with – you will also enjoy quieter doors that will not have to be constantly oiled.


Ask For Professional Help If Your Problem Is More Complex     

There are cases when simple lubricant or replacement parts cannot fix the problem. For example, if you need to unbolt the brackets at the bottom, you might get seriously injured, hence this is a job for a professional handyman.
