DID YOU KNOW?

We repair more garage door openers every day than most garage door companies do in several months?

We save our clients money not because we want to be nice or because we’re poor business people. We do it so we can earn their repeat business.

To be a low-cost service provider for our large national clients, we had to develop systems and processes to reduce their maintenance expenses. Our homeowner customers are potential beneficiaries of this cost-saving alternative.  Now they may have a choice to either repair or to replace their opener.

We’ve invested heavily in training our technicians to repair rather than replace openers.  This mindset to save our customers some money has helped us expand our business.

The Importance of a Garage Door Sensor

Your garage door sensors are a crucial part of your garage door system. They are like an extra eye that monitors if anything is in close proximity to your garage door when closing. Your garage door sensors are the small boxes located near the bottom of your garage door on both sides. Since garage doors are the largest and heaviest moving objects in your home, they could cause a lot of harm if not working properly. 

That’s why garage door sensors are an important safety mechanism to protect your family. When your garage door sensors detect any motion, they will immediately trigger the garage door to reverse back open. If your sensors seem to be malfunctioning or if your garage door starts to close and then reverses, schedule an appointment quickly. We can quickly assess the problem with your sensors and opener, ensuring that your garage door can operate safely and reliably.

How To Guarantee Your Garage Door Sensors Are Working

It is important to regularly check your garage door sensors to ensure they are working properly.  If your garage door sensors LED lights are on, then your sensors are working fine. If you notice the light is flickering or out completely, you may need to realign your garage door sensors. Sometimes all your garage door sensors need is a good cleaning to remove any dirt. If your sensor is dirty, then take a clean cloth and wipe the lens. If your garage door sensor light is still not on, then you may have electrical issues. We recommend calling your trusted garage door company to fix any issues with your garage door sensors as soon as possible.
