Garage Door Repair ServicesBack To Our Services
You are in a hurry to go to work, but the opener doesn’t start and the garage door is stuck. This and other difficult situations resulting from malfunctioning of the system can be more than annoying. Don't waste your time on getting frustrated – as there is a solution for every problem.
Each problem has specific symptoms. If none of the controls works, then the problem must be with the opener itself. If the motor is running smoothly, but doesn’t lift the door, the trolley is most probably broken and needs to be replaced. If it makes grinding sounds and the door is stuck, the moving gear is broken and has to be changed. If the lights go up, but the opener doesn’t start working, then you should fix the motor. Usually, the motor has to be replaced for the entire system to function properly once again.
If the torsion spring makes squeaky sounds, it should be lubricated right away. If there is too much or too little tension in it, the door will be difficult to close or to open respectively. The solution is to adjust the tension in the required direction. It has to be reduced or increased. If the same problem occurs with extension springs, they may have to be changed. Damaged and deformed springs should be replaced regardless of their type and design. The same is true for a broken spring. In this case, you must not use the door in the meantime.
Restoring Damaged Panels
Rust can sometimes appear on the door and especially on the bottom panel. The repair involves removing it with a specially formulated product. Repainting with durable exterior-grade paint is essential for protecting the door properly. Rotting wood panels have to be fixed as soon as the problem is noticed. The damaged wood is removed and wood hardener is used for protecting the surrounding material. After the holes are filled, repainting is necessary for restoring the looks of the door and for protection.
When is this kind of solution required? If the track is severely bent and straightening it is impossible, it has to be replaced. This is the only solution when the component is completely broken. In rare cases, corrosion is the reason for changing the tracks. These components are made from galvanized steel which is resistant to rust and corrosion, but road salt and some driveway cleaners can damage the protective coating. The new tracks have to be thick and strong.
