TOP REASONS TO BECOME A GARAGE DOOR TECHNICIAN

Looking for a career that offers plenty of variety, job security, and an excellent steady income? You’ve just described some of the benefits of being in the garage door industry and now (maybe more than ever) is an ideal time to get started on this career path.

There was already a shortage of skilled tradespeople in Northern California before the pandemic, and now the shortage is even greater. That means there are plenty of opportunities to stay working and advance in your career as a garage door technician.

Here’s what you can expect

Job variety. In this field, every day is different, which means you’ll get a chance to put all your skills to good use. The possibilities are endless. So, if you don’t like performing the same tasks every day, this job is for you.

Stability. Imagine living in a world without teachers or doctors. Impossible, right? Some professions are absolutely essential, and that goes for garage door technicians as well. You’ll never have to worry about finding a job in this industry, which is helpful if you have a family to support. And technicians don’t get outsourced, so you won’t have to worry about that, either.

No debt. There’s nothing wrong with getting a four-year degree, but the cost of college can really add up. While many students graduate owing a significant amount of money to Uncle Sam, students who graduate from a trade school usually do not.

Career advancement. At Ramirez Custom Overhead Doors, we encourage our technicians to deepen their knowledge through continuing education and advanced certification. The garage door industry Is constantly evolving, and the more training you have, the higher your salary will likely be.

You can skip the gym. By now you’ve probably read that sitting behind a desk all day can lead to health problems. But that’s not something you’ll have to worry about if you’re a garage door technician. This is a physical profession that lets you get out, move, and stay active. It also requires plenty of critical thinking and problem-solving, so your brain will stay sharp, too.

Why is My Garage Door Making Noise?

Got a garage door question? Ask Ramirez Custom Overhead Doors! Once every month, our team picks a topic and answers one of our most frequently asked questions. Our first addresses noisy garage doors.

“Why is my garage door making noise?”

Are you hearing clanking, squeaking or a grinding sound when you open or close your garage door? If you are, it’s usually a sign that your garage door is in need of attention — sooner than later. When you hear those suspicious sounds, it’s best to contact a garage door professional who can locate the source of the problem and fix it quickly.

Here are common reasons why garage doors start making noises, and what you can do about it.

  • Rollers with wear and tear. This is one of the main culprits of a noisy garage door. Rollers, like garage door springs, wear over time. You’ll likely have to replace your rollers once they start making noise. As a general rule, nylon rollers make less noise than nylon rollers.
  • Your garage door is off track. If you hear a loud cranking or rumbling sound when you open or close your garage door, it could be due to a garage door that’s out of balance or gotten off track. Alignment issues always need to be addressed by a garage door professional. Do this sooner than later, as delaying this repair can lead to bigger issues.
  • Loose parts. If components like nuts and bolts are loose, you may be able to hear it. Usually, this problem creates a screeching sound. A garage door technician can look closely to quickly find the loose parts and tighten or replace them.
  • Springs and rollers need lubrication. We recommend lubricating your garage door with a good quality metal lubricator on a regular basis. Luckily, this is an issue that can usually be solved by picking up a can of good quality metal lubricant at your local home improvement store.
  • Your garage door is old. Sometimes, no matter how well your garage door is maintained and lubricated, it will still make noises. This is usually due to wear and tear from opening and closing for years, if not decades. If this is the case, it’s time to invest in a replacement garage door.
