Signs Your Door Needs Repair

We recommend maintenance to be done by the experts. We offer an attractive and very friendly price. Remember to exercise caution when performing essential inspection and keep loved ones a safe distance away.

  • Balance test

Those equipped with automatic openers, disconnect the opener first and close the door before beginning the test. Check if you can lift that metal or wooden panel smoothly without resistance. If there is resistance or you have difficulty opening it because it won’t hold its position, it could be out of balance and should be checked immediately.

  • Force setting test

Push the close/ open button on the remote transmitter and stand at a distance of about a foot away from it. As it closes, hold out your hand and place it at the bottom, applying upward pressure. If it does not reverse itself right away, the forcing required to close the door is too much which if not corrected could cause serious bodily harm to you or a loved one. Pull your hands away immediately and call us.

  • Visual inspection

Stand inside your garage with the door closed. Look thoroughly at your hardware for any loose springs, cables or pulleys. If any parts of your system make a sound when accessed, or if something doesn’t look right, get a professional inspection by a trained technician.

  • Semi-annual lube

You can apply an ample of amount of lubricant on the hinges, tracks, and rollers to keep it functioning smoothly. You can use white lithium grease or WD-40 in small concentrated amounts.

  • Reverse mechanism test

Open the door fully. Lay a piece of debris along the bottom directly in the sensor path. Now operate it to close using the wall switch or remote. Before it comes into contact with the debris, it should reverse itself automatically. If it doesn’t happen, there’s a glitch in your system operator.

If you are not keen on conducting these simple tests by yourself, call us for a professional 20 point inspection. We’ll give you the advice and feedback you need to keep your system running optimally.

Garage Door Torsion Spring Repair

Does your door sag? That’s a huge red flag that the garage door torsion springs need replacement. If this is left neglected for a period, the springs can snap which can cause serious injury to you or a loved one. Springs play a very vital role in the smooth operation of the entry and exit of your home’s garage door. As small as these parts may seem, it bears most of the weight of your metal or wooden panels and makes it possible for you to access that entry/exit portal with ease. Damage and wear and tear are one of the most common repairs homeowners experience. Springs have to maintain a certain level of resistance., especially with the case of torsion springs. Once resistance is gone, it can either result to the entire unit hinged to the side, or in a more unfortunate event, that massive weight can drop to the ground like a hot potato. Springs function to counteract the force of gravity, a repair on the springs warrants the attention of a pro. Doing a DIY on it can result in severe consequences. Imagine having that behemoth of a door bearing down of you like a bag of bricks or falling on Sparky, your neighbor’s dog. Not a risk I’m willing to take for Sparky or me.

If you find yourself unable to open or close the door entirely, the springs could be loose and need replacement. A worn-out spring will eventually snap or break sending your garage door crashing to the ground. Spring repairs might seem easy at first because of the small size of these parts. But do not be deceived, it is one of the riskiest repairs to do without the proper tools.
