Outline of Garage Door Services

Garage door services come in a variety of forms, depending on the problem affecting the garage door.  These problems can vary, and include broken garage door springs, malfunctioning garage door openers, garage door cables, and garage doors fallen off track. Each of these issues has its own unique solution.

Broken garage door springs can either be replaced or repaired, although replacing the garage door springs may be the easiest way to go.  The springs are wound at a very high tension, which helps them to fulfill their task of supporting the garage doors weight when lifting and lowering the door.  They can usually be found on both sides of the garage door, and can come in various materials and types.  The two types that this company deals with mostly at the moment are galvanzined steel torsion springs, and black-coated springs.  Replacing a spring can be risky; even experienced garage door repairman have had the spring wrap around their hand and injure it.

Garage door openers can stop working due to a variety of reasons.  For one, the garage door remote may be out of battery; to check, a garage door owner can either test the remote after moving closer to the opener, or try switching the battery with a new one.  Another option might be to modify the closing limit switch or force motor.  If this does not work, the garage door owner can check the circuit breakers to see if the problem is not a blown fuse.  Finally, the source of the problem may be a malfunction in the garage door motor itself. 

Garage door cables are another area where repair may be needed.  The cables usally can be found on both sides of the residential garage door, and help to lift and lower the door as they revolve along the cable drum.  The cables may fray, in which case replacing them before they snap is an important step in preventing more serious damage to the garage door becuase a snapped cable can cause the garage door to collapse to the side, and make the repair job more expensive.  Another area where there might be some problems is if a car collides with the garage door and causes the garage door cables to fall off of the cable drums. 

Just as the garage door cables need the garage door drums in order to extend and contract, the garage door also needs the garage door tracks in order to move up and down.  The garage door moves along the tracks, and if the tracks bend, the garage door can stop working.  Repairing the track can require replacing them altogether, or straightening them out if they are bent.

For these issues, a garage door technician can help.  Many times, they can fix the problem on the spot on the same day of their visit.
