Garage Door Hinges
Did you know that a broken hinge can damage your garage door? Though small in size, garage hinges are essential to keeping your garage door functioning properly. Should those hinges break or wear out over time, you may find yourself trapped behind a garage door that is difficult to open, if not impossible. Luckily, HardwareSource offers a large selection of garage door hinges that can help you restore your garage to its former glory. We also supply heavy-duty ball bearings for garage door rollers, which work perfectly with all the garage door hinge types we carry in this selection.
Why Do Garage Hinges Break?
When you think about it, the hinges in your garage are subjected to a great deal of stress on a daily basis. Every time you open or close the garage door, those hinges are hard at work. One of the main reasons why you want to replace deteriorating hinges is that they can potentially deform your garage door's guide tracks or damage its panels. The longer you wait to replace your garage door hinges, the more likely it is that you will end up paying for costly repairs.
Garage Door Hinge Types
When shopping for replacement hinges to get your garage door back up and running, you only want the best of the best materials. That is precisely why we only supply garage door hardware that is made of high-grade steel. This resilient material is the preferred choice for construction and aesthetic appeal.
All of the garage hinges that we supply in our selection will work for most overhead garage doors that are equipped with extension springs. We do not recommend that you install any of these hinges on torsion spring-type sectional doors on your own. Contact a door service professional instead to ensure that the installation goes off without a hitch.

Replacing your garage door hinges is only the first step in the process. Once your new hinges are installed, you will want to inspect them regularly, or at least twice per year, to check for bends, cracks, and other signs of damage. Additionally, you should lubricate your hinges with a general-purpose household oil to prevent corrosion and keep them functioning smoothly for years to come.
With more than 125 years of experience in supplying high-quality hardware to a growing market, it is safe to say we know a thing or two about hinges.
