Columbia Heights Escalator Issues?

Is it just me, or does it seem like the escalators at the CH metro are constantly under construction? Can anyone explain why those escalators have so many issues compared to ones elsewhere?

Metro escalators take a beating unlike those in department stores – In a best case scenario Metro’s escalators run from 5:30 AM opening till the ll:pm closing, and take heat, rain, cold, although they have a 90% covering; also people habitually walk up and down the escalators; Escalators wont made for such beatings, but a they’re a necessary part of the accessible to all metro system;

Yes, one would think that since 1972 (metro’s opening) they could’ve and should’ve gotten a design especially for their usage of abnormal wear and tear, BUT “NOT”!!!
