Identifying broken garage door hinges
A telltale sign there's a piece of broken hardware on your garage door is typically unusual, loud noises or jerking movement when the door is moving — and that's the most effective method for finding damaged hinges. To easily determine whether you have broken garage door hinges, look for the following signs:

  • Check for obvious damage including loose fasteners, rusted parts, broken pieces or warping. Loose screws indicate the entire garage door hinge needs to be replaced versus repaired
  • Stiff or unbalanced garage door movement — carefully attempt opening and closing the garage door and note any jerky movement

Garage Door Hinge Maintenance

Once your new hinges are installed, be sure to inspect them regularly -- at least twice a year -- for indications of wear or breakage. In addition, all moving parts of your garage doors, including the hinges, should be lubricated with a general-purpose household oil (such as 3-in-1) on a regular basis. This basic maintenance will keep them functioning smoothly and prevent corrosion

If you find that the garage door is broken leave the door alone and call a professional garage door repair service «North Shore Doors»

Frequently asked questions

Is there an exclusive design for garage doors?
Rolling shutters are produced in 18 popular colors. The canvas and the box can be painted in different shades, which gives the product an extraordinary look.
Sectional doors are available not only in standard but also in exclusive designs. Thanks to the use of digital printing, any image can be applied to the canvas: an abstract pattern, a photograph, etc.
Regardless of the type of garage door chosen, their coating will retain its original brightness for a long time.
What is the maximum height of a garage door?
The maximum height of roller shutters is 3 m. For sectional doors this parameter can reach 3.25 m. If the height of the garage opening is much higher, please contact our managers for additional advice.
Which gate will fit my garage?
Sectional doors are the best option if:
- a high level of heat and noise insulation is required;
- a built-in wicket is required (for garages without an additional entrance);
- you want the structure to open and close silently.
In cases where the installation of sectional models is impossible, as well as if you want to save money on the purchase, roller shutters are suitable.
