Common Repairs

Garage Door Torsion Spring Replacement – A torsion spring generates energy by being wound around a shaft rather than stretching to provide lift of the door. This can be a very dangerous repair for an untrained person. We recommend calling one of our technicians to your home to repair or service anything having to do with your springs.

Garage Door Cable and Broken Spring Replacement – Sometimes packaged together since the cable is used to connect the spring to the door. They are steel and rust or wear out over time so we can replace these as needed.

Repair Sagging Garage Doors – As doors and homes age, they can shift and move and sometimes this results in a garage door that needs to be realigned or reinforced. We will send a technician to your home to adjust the doors and to inspect the entire opening to make sure the door isn’t damaged. Once we understand the problem, we will fix the needed parts and make any adjustments to the door.

Garage doors fall off their track for a variety of reasons: sometimes someone accidentally runs into the door and dislodges it, and on other occasions time and wear have worn down cables and other mechanisms beyond their use. If your garage door has jumped its track, do not attempt to move the door or reset it on your own. Doing so can be dangerous.
One of the most common repairs on a garage door opener is a broken gear & sprocket. This is the part that connects the motor to the chain or belt. After several years, the garage door springs become weaker causing more stress on this particular part causing it to fail and wear out. When the bushings collapse on the top plate, the chain or belt becomes loose causing more friction on the gear & sprocket. Eventually, this will cause the sprocket to snap off. This gives the appearance of a broken chain or belt.
People experience all sorts of issues regarding their garage doors and openers, some problems are much more common than others. Here are just a few of the many other common problems you may encounter with your garage door.
