If you notice that your garage door seems to open much more slowly than it used to, then it is time to take notice. It may be that a battery is low or another repair is needed. It may also be the case that it is time to invest in a new garage door. This is true whether the issue is that it delays starting to open and then opens quickly, or if it begins right away but opens very slowly.
If you notice that your garage door suddenly has gotten very noisy, then this is something to have looked at. There are a variety of noises it could make, from grinding to grating, from squeaking to crunching to banging. It may simply mean that you have a component that can be easily replaced, or it may mean that it needs to be replaced. Either way, at a minimum you should call for garage door repair.
There are a few issues that may seem minor but are potentially very serious. First and foremost, if your garage door slams shut instead of falling slowly as it should, this could potentially cause serious injury to anyone caught underneath it. If your door does not reverse when the sensor is triggered, this is a serious safety risk as well. Finally, if it does not close all the way then people or animals could gain access to your garage. Any of these issues warrant a call to your garage door repair company.
