Reasons for Door Closer Repair
There are several reasons why you may need to contact us for door closer repair:
- Your doors have the wrong type of door closers. We will ensure doors are matched with appropriate springs for their weight. Heavy doors need stronger springs to avoid damage and misalignment of door closers.
- Your door closers require adjustment. If your door is mistreated, for instance if it suffers excessive force, the spring may need adjusting to prevent it breakage.
- Oil levels are low. If you notice a gap between a door closer and the doorframe, the seal is probably broken. A broken seal can cause an oil leak. Lubricant can also leak due to a mechanical issue, such as a missing screw or broken O-ring. In either case, your door may start opening or closing too quickly, which poses a safety risk.
- You are experiencing difficulty locking the door. If you are unable to lock your door easily, ask one of our specialists to diagnose the problem. Leave this issue too long and you may end up seeing damage on the doorframe or door closer.
Door closer repair is no simple task, and only trained professionals can perform maintenance work. Avoid further damage to your door closer by contacting us at Glass Doctor of Toledo as soon as you notice any problems.
