Garage Door Repair Near Austin & San Antonio
Garage door repair is a common service in homes across the United States. A garage door is what keeps your house and your car from being left outside in bad weather. In order for your garage door to be effective, each part needs to be working properly. Here at ServiceBasix Garage Doors, we are fully licensed to perform garage door repair near San Antonio, Austin, and Dallas TX. When you need assistance with getting your garage door up and running, your local repair company can answer any questions or concerns you may have!
Most garage door repairs consist of replacing parts. Replacement parts include rollers, tracks, hardware, door sensors, springs, rollers, track tracks, and tracks. We group garage door repairs into three general categories. The groupings are (1) garage door springs, (2) garage door openers, and (3) the door and related hardware. When it comes to garage doors, everything affects everything else. Continuing to operate a door after a garage door part malfunctions will lead to collateral damage. We’ve witnessed a $10 part failure turn into a $1000+ door replacement, all because the occupants continued to use the door. Instead, give us a call at the first sign of an issue to schedule same day garage door repair in Austin or San Antonio.
Common Garage Door Repairs
All too frequently, whether it was done intentionally or due to ignorance, we find the wrong springs installed by some garage door companies. The wrong springs 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.
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.
If your garage door refuses to open, there could be a couple of reasons behind it. Most commonly, there’s something wrong with your garage door opener. If your opener isn’t working, your garage door won’t be able to function. You also may have broken garage door springs or cables.
Garage repair costs vary depending on the repair that you need. Usually, garage door repairs will fall somewhere between $100 and $700. The price also depends on if you need to replace any parts or your garage door opener.
Hearing strange noises from your garage door is not a good sign. If you hear grinding noises, it typically means your parts are in trouble. It can be a sign of their age or that they need a tune-up. Garage door tune-ups can greatly increase the lifespan of your garage door parts. With a tune-up, your parts will be cleaned and lubricated, which will help them function much better.
We strongly discourage homeowners from replacing their springs if they are not certified technicians. It can be quite a dangerous task because of the tension that springs hold. We don’t want you to injure yourself or a family member. Give the experts a call and we’ll take care of it for you.
Most insurance companies do not include garage door repair in their coverage. However, this does depend on your company and their policies. The exception tends to be weather damage. If your garage door is broken due to a tornado or hurricane, repairs may be covered by insurance.
