This is the most common cause of injury when attempting to repair on your own. Broken springs may seem like a simple replacement, however, can be very dangerous and cause serious injury, or damage your property. What type of spring does your garage door require? Perhaps it’s an older version and in need of an upgrade or be replaced with torsion springs. Leave this up to the professional! We wouldn’t want more damage to be done to both yourself and the garage door, if it happens to go wrong. We have the tools, experience, and safety measures to repair the broken garage door spring efficiently.
Garage door panels often need replacement due to normal wear and tear, weather conditions, or collision. Is it possible to replace only the panels rather than the entire garage door? Good and bad news: first, the good news…you may not need to replace the entire door to keep its attractiveness and functionality — it’s often just the bottom panels that incur damage due to their proximity to the ground. Replacing the bottom panel for the garage door provides a more affordable option. The bad news is that a garage door panel may negatively impact its entire functionality, and in that case, panel replacement alone will not correct the malfunction of the garage door. In fact, replacing a single panel could jeopardize the door’s structural integrity, making it more difficult or even unsafe to operate.
That being said, replacing a damaged garage door panel will only solve the problem temporarily. You’ll likely need to replace the entire door at some point. If you’re not ready for the new door quite yet, replacing the panels is your best bet! It will offer a solution in order to keep your home secure. It’s best to discuss this with our technicians to see if a panel replacement will suffice or if an entire door is needed.
Garage Door Cables
Depending on the type of garage door you have, the type of cables used will vary. Made up of pliable twisted cable of a number of strands of galvanized wire, cables undergo a lot of tension and work together with the garage door springs to open and close your garage door effectively. If one of the cables should snap, it could pop the spring out and potentially be harmful when using the garage door. With a broken cable, you may or may not be able to open the garage door at all. Among many purposes, the cables help you open and close the heavy door without breaking your back to lift it. If you have extension springs, you will need extension spring cables and safety cables that protect those cables. It can be a tricky job if attempting on your own. You will want to make sure the cables, springs and door are working in sync for functionality of the garage door and for the safety of your loved ones who use the garage.
Garage Door Rollers
Is the garage door getting rigid, jammed, or making a really bad squeaking noise? Perhaps the rollers are bent or damaged. Rollers need to be replaced about every 2 years. It’s hard to know if the issue is the rollers, tracks, or something else. We’ll have a look and it may be a simple fix, but either way, have a trained professional do the job to avoid any further complications with the garage door.
Along with broken rollers, a garage door track that is bent or if it’s just had its fair share of use, can cause the entire door to malfunction. If you continue to use the garage door while the tracks are not properly aligned, it could create more damage to the door, rollers, springs or cables. It may be as simple as proper lubrication, however, if there are any signs of damage, it’s best to use professional service to avoid any additional costs in repairing other affected parts.
There are several reasons why you might be having issues with the garage door opener. If the opener and the wall switch both don’t work, you can be almost certain it’s a power source issue. If the remote alone doesn’t work, first check if the batteries have died. If that doesn’t do the trick, now would be the time to contact a professional. It’s possible the garage door openers motor has burned out and it would need to be replaced. Another issue might be that the sensitive electronics lost their programming and may need to be reset. Each garage door opener has a slightly different method of reprogramming, so it would be wise to contact us for accuracy.
We service all types of openers: Chain drive, belt drive, screw drive, direct drive.
Another garage door opener feature to consider is to have wi-fi integration. Open and close your garage door from anywhere and monitor its usage; you don’t even have to be within a certain radius to make this work. Control access all from your smartphone or tablet.
The garage door openers are very important for the safety of your home. A malfunctioning opener can leave your home unsecured when you are at home or away. Unwanted visitors hit the jackpot when there is a garage door opener malfunction. The safety sensors may need to be adjusted or realigned as well. If there is anything obstructing the sightline of these sensors, the door will fail to fully descend and can be identified as an issue with the opener rather than an issue with other hardware. Again it would be wise to consult with us to diagnose the problem and to find the most appropriate solution.
There are sensors near the bottom of the garage door as well as in the opener, which operate the close-force, or speed that the garage door descends. These sensors generate a low-voltage beam that completes the electrical circuit when the door is activated.
Sometimes the sightline sensors need to be adjusted, realigned, or reset for a couple reasons: you want the garage door to fully close and you want the door to lift up if it detects a child run under it, or you car if you haven’t pulled in all the way. This protects whatever is under the garage door and allows the door to detect when it’s safe to fully close again.
Our trained and certified technicians inspect and inform you of the issue before getting started on the repairs. No matter what the problem may be, our trucks are fully stocked with tools and equipment to repair your garage door in just one visit. Avoid the run-around of finding cheap parts, cheap labor, or DIY solutions. You can trust our professionals to give you the best service at the most affordable prices. We will then invoice you once the job is complete.

Garage Door Installation
Perhaps your garage door has been through the rough or maybe you want to enhance the attractiveness of your home… it’s time to install a new door. Upgrading your garage doors can have a huge impact on your home’s curb appeal at a relatively low cost. Of course, the functionality of the garage door is our primary concern, however, did you think about how the house or business may look with the new garage door? Surely, you will want to put some thought into the home that you care about. There are almost no limitations for garage door styles and colors. With an array of options to choose from, you will want to consider the following:
Material – the most common material used is wood, due to its ability to withstand more damages, can be customized in more ways, and can be painted. Metal, for example, is more prone to dents and not as easy to cover up minor faults. You can also choose between aluminum and PVC or fiberglass overlays. Although wood is the more traditional choice, the downfall of wood however, is that it requires maintenance more often, such as staining and painting. It’s best to talk with our experts to decide which style would be best.
Style – Consider the style and architecture of your home. Is it contemporary, modern, Edwardian, Victorian, etc. Some style of garage doors may be easier to customize, while others are not as easy. Victorian, Georgian or Colonial garage doors, for example, are made with paneled wood to create a stable or coach house look.
Color – Depending on the material you’ve chosen, there is a wide range of color selections to make your door unique and further complement your home’s architectural style. A common method to choosing the right color is to look at the home window trim. Often times a bold color stands out well to add depth and character to your home. A few common colors are charcoal, desert sand, or ice white.
One other thing to consider is the possibility for home energy savings. Have you ever noticed that your garage door is more than likely the largest moving object attached to the house? The energy consumed to open and close the garage door several times a day can greatly increase the energy bill. What is sometimes overlooked is the insulation. A well insulated garage door can help reduce the transfer of hot and cold air into your garage and home, leading to much lower energy bills and regulated temperatures.
