Nashville, TN, December 13, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Nashville garage door repair specialist, Elite Garage Doors has released common garage door problems homeowners in Tennessee experience daily and easy ways to correct or prevent them.
Aaron Moore, owner and president of Elite Garage Doors said with age, most garage doors will begin to wear down but homeowners can extend the life of their doors and garage door openers by doing regular inspections and maintenance.
“Regular inspection will reveal small issues before they turn into major problems and that could make a difference in how much time and expense needed to fix them. The earlier the issue is detected, the easier and less expensive it is to fix. Regular maintenance helps help them work better,” Moore said.
Besides regular inspection and maintenance, Moore advised homeowners to ensure the wall button is not sticking as that may cause the garage door to open without input from homeowner.
“Shorts in the wires connected to the wall button may cause the garage door to open suddenly. If the door opener operates on its own without someone activating it, ensure there are no sticky buttons on the remote and wall control. The solution is to fix the sticking button if that is the issue, and reprogram your remote control,” Moore said.
The Nashville garage door expert said garage doors that fail to close or closes slowly when the remote control or wall button is activated may have issues with sensors or door springs.
“If the door fails to close when you push the button or closes slowly, check the sensors for misalignment, blocking objects or defects. Broken springs cause strain on the garage door opener and causes the garage door to open slowly while bad springs may make it difficult for the door to remain open. These are fairly easy for garage door professionals to fix,” Moore said.
