How do I Keep My Door From Being so Loud?

Some amount of noise is expected when your garage door is operation. However, if it is very noisy, there are things you can do to reduce the sound.

Tighten the bolts on every panel to keep them from clanking together when it is opening or closing. Be sure that you don’t over-tighten the bolts, because it can cause you to strip the heads.

Look at the rollers to determine if they are worn out. If you have metal rollers, consider changing to nylon, because they are quieter. Nylon rollers don’t need the same care as metal rollers.

Spray the hinges with a grease based lubricant to allow them to move more freely. You should also consider spraying the rollers and tracks. This is part of general maintenance that can be done on a yearly basis.

Install a quieter garage door opener. Belt drive openers offer a quieter function over chain or screw drive. If you have a belt drive, then you may want to add an anti-vibration pad to keep it from moving around during operation. The pad can be placed between the ceiling and the mounting bracket of the opener.
