Many parts play a factor in making your garage door quieter. Here are few solutions to look into. Upgrading your hardware such as using nylon rollers instead of steel rollers can help reduce noise because it will eliminate the steel roller on steel tracks friction. Lubricate all of the parts to help reduce squeaking springs, cables, rollers, pulleys, etc. Make sure all of the nuts and bolts are tightly wound. Any rusted hinges, brackets, moving parts, etc should be replaced. The condition and mechanism of your garage door opener should also be looked into. Belt driven garage door openers are much quieter than chain driven openers. If you want a very quiet opener, look into Liftmaster's Side Mount but you need to have a torsion spring system set up for that.
