The garage door opener makes your door move in either the opening or the closing direction. The power comes from your garage door’s spring that is activated by that opener. It also regulates the speed of the garage door and can stop the garage door at any point. A garage door opener is activated with buttons, remotes or keypads.
If a garage door opener is no longer working, then there are a few things that could be causing it to malfunction. Those things could be either internal or external. The garage door could have something that is obstructing it or there could be a block on the electric safety eyes. The opener itself could even be damaged. We would go over the whole garage door opener to make sure that we had the right fix for you. We’ll also work to repair the opener at the lowest cost.
Garage Door Spring Repair and Replacement
Your garage door spring is what is causing your garage door to lift. Before a spring breaks or wears out, there are a certain number of mechanisms that it goes through. Sometimes you can repair springs and help them last a little bit longer, but other times this is just not possible and they have to be replaced. If you notice that there is an issue with the garage door spring, you should not try to take care of the job yourself. You should contact a professional that can take care of the job since it can be rather dangerous dealing with the garage door spring. When we replace or repair either the torsion or extension spring, we make sure that we lubricate the pulleys or bearings as well to help it run smoother.
Garage Door Roller Repair and Replacement
One of the first things that tends to wear out is the rollers on your garage door. You may notice that every time that your garage door opens, there is a noise that it makes. If you are hearing a noise, then you may need to be concerned. This could be mean that your garage door roller needs to be replaced. It can be replaced with either traditional metal rollers or it can be replaced with nylon rollers. If you are sick of hearing noise, then nylon rollers are a great option for minimizing the noise.
While taking care of your rollers can mean that you do not have to deal with the noise, it can also work to prevent future damage to other parts of the garage door. If your roller is messed up, then it could cause damage to the track. The replacement cost is usually pretty low, and it can usually get fixed on the same day.
More Repairs You May Need
Garage door seal replacements or repairs could also be necessary since the weather can be pretty rough on these things. The same goes for cable, which can be worn and even snap because of severe weather conditions. Broken and cracked drums can be caused due to too much pressure, but proper maintenance can help with all of these things. You can also repair a damaged or bent track. No matter what problem you might be dealing with when it comes to your garage door, it can be fixed or replaced so that the garage door will function properly again and allow you to get back to living your life.
