Do You Need New Garage Door Hinges?
You can tell that your garage door needs a repair when it becomes noisier or jumps off the track while going up and down, which can lead it to shudder and shake. Signs you may need garage door hinge service include:
- Loose screws.

- Signs of damage, like broken pieces or rusting.
How to Fix Garage Door Hinges
You will have the best results when you have professionals replace your garage door hinges. If your door becomes unbalanced while you work on it, you or a member of your family could get hurt.
If you do try to perform the work yourself, make sure to raise the door and steady it for a couple of minutes or brace it before trying to take out screws or bolts. Unplug the garage door opener, too. Once you have the door firmly in place, loosen the nuts and remove the hinge bolts. Pull the roller away from the track by tipping the hinge.
To add the new hinge, align the roller and fasten the bolts from the outside, tightening the nuts. Make sure you use the same hole for the original hinge.
