Emergency Garage Door Repairs
A damaged garage door can compromise the safety and security of your home, leaving you vulnerable to break-ins or accidents. That’s why, at Gold Coast Door Centre, we provide emergency garage door repairs for clients throughout the Gold Coast. Our team knows that some repairs are more urgent than others, so we go above and beyond to get to you as soon as we can in the event of a garage door emergency.
One of the most common emergency repairs our team carry out is fixing a broken spring. Garage door springs are under a lot of tension, and if they break, the door can come crashing down. If you suspect a broken spring, avoid opening and closing the door, as this can cause further damage.
Another common emergency repair is a malfunctioning opener. If your opener isn’t working, the door won’t open or close properly. This can be caused by several issues, such as a dead battery in the remote, a problem with the opener’s motor or a broken gear. This can become an emergency if you need access to a vehicle which is stuck inside the garage.
A misaligned or damaged track can be a serious safety hazard and may also require emergency attention. The door should smoothly slide along its tracks when it opens and closes. If these tracks become bent or are pushed out of alignment, the door can become stuck or even fall.
A panel that is damaged, dented or cracked due to impact or wear and tear can majorly affect the function of your garage door. A damaged panel can cause the door to become stuck or even fall off the tracks. Depending on the severity of the damage, the door will need to be repaired or replaced. Signs of physical damage to the door can include deformed panels, rust, cracks or gaps.
An emergency garage door repair can also be required following any bumps or accidents when driving your vehicle in or out of your garage. Whether you’ve accidentally backed into a closed door, or the door has landed on your bonnet while unexpectedly closing, these accidents can be highly stressful and will usually require immediate attention.
Some other common repairs include:
- Stuck or jammed doors
- Door not responding to remote signal
- Unusual noises or squeaking when the door is opening or closing
- Unbalanced doors
- Frequent interference from nearby devices
- Damaged cables, hinges or motors

Signs your garage might require repairs or maintenance
Although It Can Sometimes Be Tricky Figuring Out If Your Garage Door Is In Need Of Servicing Or Maintenance, There Are Some Signs That You Will Need Repairs Soon. These Can Include:
Do you have trouble closing your garage door?
If you press your remote button repeatedly and nothing happens and you know that the issue isn’t the remote itself, this can be a sign that your garage door opener is beginning to fail. This could be caused by a variety of things including a lack of communication between the opener and your door, or a malfunction in the door itself. We can find the underlying cause and get the door working again.
Are your garage doors sagging?
After a time your door may begin to lose structure. You may eventually begin to see sagging or a door that is not balanced. When you pull your garage door down it should stay where you leave it, even if it’s right in the middle of being open and closed. If it falls or bounces back upward, you may need a new tension spring.
Is your garage door making noisy sounds?
Noise is always a sign that something might be amiss with your door. While old doors are likely to make some noise over time, excessive creaking or grinding can be a sign that something bigger is wrong underneath the surface.
Has your garage door come off its tracks?
While most doors can come off the tracks at times, this is often caused by damage to the door itself. If your door isn’t staying in line the way it should, it may be time to call in a professional to ensure there are no dents or other damage.
Does your garage door have a slow response?
If your door is taking longer to respond to your opener or moving more slowly once it gets going, this could be a sign that your opener is going to fail.
Is there wetness in your garage?
Your garage door should keep water out of your garage. If you begin to see wet spots or dampness in your garage after a rainstorm, or you notice mould or mildew inside the garage or near the door itself, this could be a sign that your door isn’t sealing as it should.
Have you noticed rising energy costs?
If you begin to notice that your energy bills are skyrocketing, this might be a sign that your garage door is letting cool or hot air into your living space.
