How to Fix Noisy Garage Roller Door

Tips and Solutions from Kay Garage Doors

Is your garage roller door making a racket every time you open or close it? Those irritating squeaks and clatters can be a source of annoyance for both you and your neighbours. The good news is that dealing with a noisy garage roller door is a common issue, and there are effective solutions to bring back that peace and quiet. 

Common Causes of a Noisy Garage Roller Door

Over time, the rollers that guide the door along the tracks can wear down or become damaged leading to increased noise when the door operates.

Vibrations and daily use can cause the nuts and bolts on your garage door to become loose. Loose hardware can lead to rattling and other annoying sounds.

If the tracks that guide your garage roller door are misaligned, it can result in uneven movement and a noisy door. This misalignment can occur due to various factors, including impact or temperature fluctuations.

Solutions to Quiet a Noisy Garage Roller Door

Proper lubrication is key to maintaining a quiet garage roller door. Use a silicone-based garage door lubricant to coat the rollers, hinges, and tracks. It’s advisable to do this every six months to keep things running smoothly.

If your rollers are showing signs of wear and tear, it’s a good idea to replace them. New rollers will not only reduce noise but also improve the overall performance of your garage door.

Take a moment to inspect and tighten all the nuts and bolts on your garage door. Pay particular attention to the roller brackets, track brackets, and other hardware. This simple step can often make a noticeable difference in noise reduction.

Check the alignment of the tracks. They should be parallel to each other and have a slight slope towards the rear of the garage. If you notice any misalignment, it’s best to contact a professional for adjustment.

For a comprehensive solution and lasting peace and quiet, consider professional maintenance from our Kay Garage Doors experts. They can thoroughly inspect your garage door, identify any issues, and provide the necessary repairs or replacements. Professional maintenance not only ensures a quieter door but also enhances its lifespan and safety.

If your garage is attached to your home, consider adding noise insulation to the walls or ceiling of the garage. This can help reduce the transfer of sound into your living space.
