Noisy Garage Doors
There’s nothing as irritating as a noisy garage door, especially if you have to sleep next to or above the garage.
Fortunately, you can fix a noisy garage door by replacing a few parts and doing some routine maintenance.
If the noise persists after the maintenance, it could mean the hinges are bad and should be replaced.
Frozen Garage Door
Imagine coming home on a cold day and all you want to do is go in and wrap yourself in something warm, but alas moisture and cold prevents you from opening and closing your door as quickly as you need to.
Garage doors sometimes freeze to the floor making it difficult to open and close them. It could be nothing more than a little icy connection between them that is easily broken with a mere click of your garage door opener button.
Avoid banging on your automatic garage door opener button if the door refuses to open on your first attempt. This might cause more problems with your garage door opener – like broken springs, stripped gears, or burning out the motor on the operator.
When you consider all the fun activities like baseball that go on in a yard, you’ll understand why garage glass doors get broken so often.
Whatever the cause, broken glass is a safety concern and cause a lot of havoc so you will need to repair the glass as soon as possible.
Fortunately, we can take care of that for you. We have the exact replacement part you need for your glass garage door.
Safety Concerns for Garage Door Repair
Overhead garage doors are very heavy, so you can imagine the kind of safety risk a door that is not properly hinged or one with old automatic door openers can pose.
There are far too many stories of children or pets getting injured or worse dying from avoidable accidents like getting trapped underneath a closing door.
You can reduce the risk of such accidents by getting a modern automatic door opener. They come with auto-reverse and auto-stop mechanisms, however this will not stop a mishap from occurring if you don’t maintain the door and opener properly.
Installing a new garage door opener when your garage opener becomes old or stops working properly is a real safety concern and not just a convenience.
It’s funny how people take their garages for granted considering most garages house household items and tools worth thousands of dollars.
Yet, people neglect security in their garages making it easy for intruders to find their way in.
You can improve your garage security by simply installing one of our modern garage door openers with a rotating digital code.
Even the most tech-savvy intruder will find it very difficult to penetrate such security and probably just move on to a neighbor who has an easier door to open.
Faulty Garage Door Opener
Most people with a garage door come and go through their garage door rather than the front door of the home.
A functional garage door opener is actually very important!
Which is why it can be very inconvenient when your garage door stops functioning properly.
Getting it fixed is really not really as complicated as it appears, there are some easy options available to homeowners for diagnosing and repairing garage door openers.
Garage doors are counterbalanced by torsion springs or extension springs connected to pulleys and cables.
These springs create a counterforce to the door’s weight and can also help to raise and lower the door with little or no force applied with the help of a nice motorized garage door opener or by hand.
However, these springs are prone to wear mostly because of the constant pressure they have to the deal with.
So, if you notice that your garage door feels heavy when lifting it by hand or you’re struggling to open it, it means the springs are probably worn out and should be replaced.
Most homeowners prefer to contact professionals to check on the cost and time to replace garage door parts. Replacing garage door springs can be quite dangerous, so please just call us to repair a garage door spring.
Worn-Out Garage Door
If well-maintained, you can use a garage door for many years.
If the garage door is not maintained, it will fail faster and you’ll have no other choice than to have it replaced.
So, you need to maintain your door to get value for your money. You may want to replace your door just for aesthetic purposes not because it stopped functioning.
