Common Summer Garage Door Issues

by | Jul 2, 2019 | Tips

Phoenix in the summer is the hottest place to be. Both as the Entertainment Capital of the World and thanks to the triple-digit summers. Yes, triple-digit summers. This is especially the case when Phoenix har consistently recorded 117 degree heat. With temperatures that high, it’s no surprise that garage door issues become more common. Without the proper attention, these issues may result in the need to repair your garage door opener, sensors, or install a new garage door all together. If you notice issues with your garage door, or hear anything that doesn’t sound quite right, contact Sun City Garage Doors to schedule an inspection or repair.

Dry heat issues

When people mention the heat in Phoenix, they always seems to say, “yeah, but it’s a dry heat!” Unfortunately, excessive heat is to blame for many of the costly issues that arise with garage doors. All of the moving parts need to be lubricated in order to prevent friction that can cause serious wear and tear. This may become a fire hazard if not attended to.

Garage door warping

It is common for garage doors, both wooden and aluminum, to expand with heat. This can cause a number of issues like causing the door to become unbalanced. Wooden doors are especially vulnerable to cracking when they expand. Furthermore, the circuit boards and electronics that power your garage door can overheat and short-circuit from the excessive heat.

Garage door sensor issues

Another common issue that many property owners encounter with their garage doors is actually more of an illusion than a real issue. When the sensors that sit behind the garage door are exposed to direct sunlight, they may cause issues with closing the garage door. This is because they are tricked into thinking that there is an obstruction and they should not close.
