Should you repair or replace your garage door opener?
The average garage door opener lasts 10 to 15 years, so if your garage door opener is older than that, your Candu Pro may recommend a replacement. The safety and efficiency of garage door openers has improved a lot in the past ten years, so replacing yours may mean a huge upgrade in quality for a negligible investment.
Your garage door opener will show signs of wear as it reaches the end of its lifespan. Some signs that you should consider garage door opener replacement include:
- The garage door opener is vibrating a lot in use.
- It’s moving slower than it used to.
- It’s functioning intermittently, or breaking down a lot.
- It’s started to make unusually loud sounds.
Usually, it’s cheaper to replace, rather than repair, a garage door opener, especially if it’s getting older or has damage to the gears or rails. You can count on your Candu Pro to help you make the best decision regarding repair vs. replacement.
