Our garage door company also provides complete gate repair and installation services. When it comes to gates, there are a lot of components that can potentially go bad. Faulty openers that make a grinding noise, loose or broken hinges, and misaligned tracks are some of the most common issues that gate owners face. Here is a detailed look at these problems and how we can help you solve them.
Loose or Rusted Hinges
Unlike garage doors, gate hinges are constantly exposed to the external atmosphere. The moisture in this atmosphere can expedite the process of oxidation in the metal parts, giving rise to rust. While such corrosion can be handled with proper care and other solutions like periodic lubrication, extreme scenarios may require advanced rectification methods like welding and joining.
Gate Opener Does Not Open or Close the Door
This has mostly to do with the power that is supplied to the opener. Either the opener is pulling a lot of current from the mains supply or it is being overloaded. This is a fairly normal issue that can be fixed by a quick troubleshooting of the opener motor.
There are many more peripheral checks that need to be done in such a scenario. Therefore, we always recommend users to depend on professionals.
Misaligned Track Obsctructs the Gate Operation
Most common in swing gates, a misalignment in the track of either of the dual gate doors can prevent them from opening or closing properly. This not only affects the weight balance of the gate but also the security of your house as the gate cannot be closed and locked.
