Tilt Door Repairs Melbourne

Tilt doors are a popular style for garages in Melbourne.This is especially true when the when the owner wants a specific look for their garage door. A tilt door is a single flat panel that is built to cover the garage. When opened, the panel swings both outwards and upwards on mechanical arms. There are two main types of tilt doors – being track tilt doors and trackless ones.

They are a particularly popular style of garage door in Melbourne as they come in a variety of styles. This includes timber, powder-coated aluminum and Colorbond. Tilt doors are a great choice when you want your garage door to match the rest of your home.

Over time, tilt doors can experience a range of problems like broken springs, sometimes the arms and bearings may wear out. If you have a track type tilt door then wheels may wear and stick, or your door may just be catching. This is because houses often move with weather change. As a result it can prevent a remote control opener from opening the garage door.

At Pete The Roller Door Bloke we have lots of experience in repairing all types of tilt doors. In addition to repairing tilt doors we also repair roller doors and panel lift doors.

Tilt Door Broken Springs Repairs

One of the most common reasons we are called out to fix a garage door is because of a problem with the door springs. If you think there is a problem with the door springs of your garage tilt door it is best to stop using it and get it fixed straight away to avoid further damage.

Signs that your Tilt Door Springs need Repairing

  • You are not able to open the door fully
  • When you close the door it closes with a thud
  • When you try to manually open the door, it is too heavy

We usually recommend that you get both springs replaced at one time. This is because they usually deteriorate at the same rate. By doing this you will save an additional fee to get it repaired.

Tilt Door Wear Repairs

Another common problem we encounter with garage tilt doors is worn arm, bearings and wheels. The mechanical system used to control the tilt door operations necessitates having moving parts. Any moving part will experience wear over time and this can eventually lead to deterioration or breakdown of the parts. If you think your parts are deteriorating then you need to get it fixed as soon as possible. This is because the tilt door may get stuck and prevent access to your garage if it is left too long, resulting in a more expensive repair being required.
