What Does a Garage Door Hinge Do?

The garage door hinges play a vital role in the function of your garage door, allowing the panels to bend and fold during operation. However, due to the constant stress placed on them through movement and routine wear and tear, they will eventually require replacement.

What Causes Garage Door Hinges to Break?

There are many potential causes for garage door hinges to break. Some common causes include:

  • Rust or corrosion on the hinges
  • Worn-out or damaged hinges
  • Loose or improperly installed hinges
  • Hinges that are too small or too large for the door
  • Hinges that are not compatible with the door material
  • Improperly balanced doors
  • Excessive weight on the door
  • Impact damage to the door or hinges

When Is Garage Door Hinge Replacement Needed?

If you notice loud noises from the garage door, it could mean a door hinge has broken. If inspections uncover cracks or loose screws, refrain from operating the door until a qualified garage door repair service can complete the repair and return to safe use.

How Do I Replace a Garage Door Hinge?

Although replacing a garage door hinge is less challenging than replacing springs or cables, it is still tricky. Hinge repairs should be done with the door raised for safety, making access difficult. Another factor that contributes to a successful installation is choosing the right hinge. It's essential to carefully match parts so that your repaired door will provide years of trouble-free operation.
