How to Quiet a Noisy Garage Door
Does your garage door croak as you pull out of your driveway? When you head out for work, are you afraid that the noise coming from your door will wake up the whole neighborhood? If that’s the case, you’re in need of some tips on how to quiet a noisy garage door. In this post, we’ll go over 5 easy methods on how to ensure that your door is operating at its best (and its quietest) – so stay tuned for more!
Method #1: Change Your Rollers
Our first recommendation is to change your garage door’s rollers. Many homeowners have changed to nylon because it provides a smoother ride for the door along the track, thus making it easier to move without friction (in layman’s terms – less friction means less noise). If you want to take it up a notch, there are even nylon rollers with metal balls inside of them that self lubricate and make for an even smoother ride. Consider upgrading today.
Method #2: Get a Belt Drive Opener
Another way to to quiet your garage door would be to consider upgrading to a belt drive opener. These pulleys don’t require lubrication, they run smoother, and they don’t jerk as much as chain drives do. A smoother ride and minimal jerking from your opener could contribute to decreasing how noisy your garage door is overall.
Method #3: Lubricate Your Garage Door
Lubricating the moving parts of your garage door comes with many benefits. From reducing noise to helping save on costly repairs, doing so is one of the best ways to not only reduce noise, but to extend the life of your garage door as well.

Method #4: Upgrade to a Quiet Door Opener
Some of the benefits of upgrading to a quiet garage door opener include convenience, advanced features, additional security, energy efficiency, and hassle-free maintenance. By upgrading your opener, you can stress less about noise, security, and ease of access.
