Garage Door Repair Services
What you Should know
Smart homeowners know that garage door upgrades deliver some of the best returns on investment compared to other home improvements. Garage doors have evolved to meet the functional needs and esthetic tastes of homeowners. Manufacturers can make everything from the typical plain white/Almond steel raised panel door found throughout the country to exotic materials that cost tens of thousands.
Garage doors have become architectural features and design elements to enhance the look of a home. The choices are almost endless since manufacturers can combine steel, aluminum, glass, vinyl, fiberglass, wood, composites, and other materials to construct your unique door. With different choices in design, textures, and colors, a homeowner can create an infinite array of possibilities.
Overhead doors sustain minor structural or cosmetic damage from kids playing with balls or by impacting the bumper of your car. We may be able to either repair or simply replace the damaged panels. If a repair or partial replacement isn’t practical, we can usually locate a door that maintains the same look of your door. Or, this may be an opportune time to go for a completely new look.
We refuse to sell low-quality doors made from thin gauge steel to “bait” prospects with the lowest price. However, that doesn’t mean that we don’t do our very best to deliver the best value for your dollar on quality products. We’ll help you select the perfect door for your home from a wide selection of door manufacturers.
The wrong spings can result in catastrophic damage to the door, the door opener, and other door components.
Our trained technicians know how to compute the correct spring specifications (you have to use a bit of math), and they only install the proper springs for your door.
If you plan to stay in your home for a long time, consider upgrading your torsion springs with our LIFETIME guaranteed springs. This guarantee covers all future parts and labor charges in the event the torsion spring breaks for as long as you own your home. We exclusively use oil-tempered springs, which we consider the best quality.
Our standard 10,000 cycle springs have a life expectancy of 7-10 years for most homeowners with typical use. Our garage door spring prices are published here.
If garage door panel repair isn’t practical, replacing one or several panels can sometimes save our customers an entire new door. The hinges and wheels or garage door rollers need to be tightened and lubricated annually. Failure to do preventative maintenance will shorten the life of your door.
The tracks that attach the entire unit to the building structure must be rigid and aligned to avoid the door from going “off-track.” A crashed door results from one or more of the rollers detaching from the track. When the rollers fall out, the cables that connect the door to the springs may also fall off the garage door cable drum. In severe cases, doors have crashed on vehicles, and they can cause injury to untrained people trying to fix it by themselves.
In most instances, our technicians can place your door back on track unless the door sustained permanent damage. Our garage door and component repair prices are published here.
