Most garage door parts aren’t going to last forever. Even if your garage door is a lightweight aluminum door, it will still be under some strain every time it opens or closes. If your garage door has become squeaky over time, this could be due to an alignment issue. The alignment could be off balance in the tracks or due to problems with the rollers and hinges.
If you have already inspected the tracks and they seem to be in good working order, you may need to replace your rollers and hinges.
A local garage door repair company can handle this task for you, and it’s always a good idea to hire professional help for a garage door project. Garage doors may seem safe due to how often you interact with them, but they are exceptionally dangerous. They contain springs that are under high pressure and can seriously injure or kill you if you aren’t careful.
Replacing the garage door rollers and hinges isn’t dangerous in and of itself, but make sure to relieve the tension in the springs before starting any project. The video posted above will guide you through the process of replacing the parts that are making your garage door squeak.
Whether you hire a local garage door repair specialist or choose to replace the rollers and hinges yourself, you should end up with a smooth, quiet garage door.
