How to Reduce the Noise of a Squeaky Garage Door

Is your door loud when you open or close it? If you didn’t know, that is not normal. Sure, you are going to hear some amount of noise when you are working your assembly, but you shouldn’t have a squeaky garage door. If your door makes a lot of creaking, squeaking, or rumbling sounds, then there are some things you can do to solve the problem.

Apply Lubrication

When the mechanical parts of your assembly need lubrication, it can cause the door to be noisier. You should be able to reduce some of the noise.

Here’s how you can lubricate your garage door:

  • Use a ladder tall enough to reach the tracks.
  • Do not stand directly under the door, instead place the ladder on the outside of the tracks.
  • Spray the tracks and chain or cable with WD-40 or a silicone based lubricant. It is important that you do not use oil or grease. These types of lubricants can cause build-up and keep the door from functioning.

*Do not spray wheels directly.

It is recommended that you spray your tracks two times a year. If you are not able to do this, we offer a Tune-N-Lube service that we can tune up your door. Call our garage door company to come out and handle that for you.

Install a Quieter Garage Door Opener

Your garage door opener may be a noisier part. There are openers on the market that are designed to be quieter when you use them. Our technicians are able to share with you the best opener for your needs.

We will come out and look at your assembly to determine what you currently have installed. Then, we can recommend the part that will give you the best operation. If you are ready to move forward, we will make the installation.

Tighten Up Loose Parts

There are many bolts, screws, and other mechanical parts that can loosen up over the course of time. Just from using your door will bounce these pieces and untighten them. Go over your door and tighten up all of the screws and bolts in the assembly.

Look At The Rollers

If the rollers wear out, it can cause scraping in the tracks. This will add to the noise you hear when your door is opening and closing. It is important to change the rollers when you notice wear anyways. Otherwise, the door can come off the tracks or other damage can occur.

Check The Opener Chain

When the garage door opener chain becomes loose, it will add to the noise you hear. If there is slack in the chain, you will need to tighten it up. Use your owner’s manual to guide you through the process. Or, call us and we will send a certified technician out to you.

Call Us For a Quote

If you have tried all of these things and you still hear noise, call us for a quote. We will send a certified technician out to your location to figure out what’s going on. Once we know, we’ll provide you with a quote on the services necessary to reduce the noise.

We are happy to help you with your garage door service.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
