Garage Door Opener Repair and Installation
We provide garage door opener repairs and installations to homes and businesses alike. Our team is made up of experienced professionals who have the necessary credentials and equipment to safely carry out repairs, maintenance, and installations on your garage door and its opening system.
The opener is a vital part of your garage door working properly- without it, the door won’t open and close. Since these doors are often made up of steel or glass, they can be very heavy and place a lot of pressure on the opening mechanism, causing issues with it at some point in the future.
Since a garage door opener contains lots of different moving parts that work together to open the door, all it takes is one part to malfunction and the entire system can fail. It’s very important that when you have any issues with your door or its opener have it looked by a professional as quickly as you can.
Our Garage Door Opener Repair Best Practices
Our team of professionals has a number of rules and procedures it follows in order to be able to provide you with the best possible service. Adhering to this best practice allows us to keep you and us safe while we work and ensure that we properly repair your door and its opening mechanism when necessary.
When you have an issue with your garage door opener, our team comes to inspect the door and check for a number of common faults, which often cause an opener to malfunction. If we identify any of these problems with your door or opener, we work quickly to repair them so that you can start using your garage door again as quickly as possible.
The Garage Door Opener is Not Closing Normally (Sensors)
If your garage door opener isn’t closing as it should, there may be a problem with the sensors. It’s very important to check for issues with the sensors because dysfunctional sensors, stop the entire mechanism from working. When our team comes out to inspect your opener, we always check for issues with the sensor. Also, we check that the sensors are properly aligned and that the switch is adequately placed. These are often overlooked problems with opening mechanisms, and they can be fixed relatively simply by a professional. Even direct sunlight on the lens of the sensor can prevent it from working properly.
Our team also checks your garage door’s gear. The gear is situated inside the opener, and if it doesn’t articulate properly, then this can stop the entire opening mechanism from working properly. Also, this can put considerable strain on the other parts of the opener, which is why it’s so important that someone addresses problems with the gear ASAP. If any elements of the opener are under excessive strain, this can be dangerous. It can cause your garage door to open or close erratically, which can seriously injure anybody nearby if they aren’t careful or aren’t aware of the danger.
The Remote Keypad or Control of the Garage Door is Not Responding
This is one of the more technical aspects of garage door repair and is also one of the most important. When our team comes to your location, we inspect the garage door keypad to make sure it’s working properly. If you have a wall mount garage door opener which isn’t working, then you’re not going to be able to open the door at all. Our team can inspect and repair your garage door remote or replace it with a universal garage door opener if necessary. This is often the easiest and quickest way to get the door functioning again in a timely manner, allowing you and your family or colleagues to get in and out of the garage.
Opener Reversing Feature Doesn’t Work
Having an opener reversing feature on your garage door is crucial, and it can be dangerous if faulty or dysfunctional. This can result in the door not opening when it should, which can result in accidents or injury. Our team can carry out a garage door safety check when they come to your property. Part of the safety check includes making sure the reversing feature functions properly and that no part of your garage door is dangerous or likely to cause injury while we’re repairing it.
Emergency Release is Pulled Down
If your garage door won’t open, there’s a chance that it’s due to a problem with the emergency release. When the garage door emergency release is pulled down, it usually causes the opener to disengage. You might not even be aware of this safety feature, but its aim is to keep you safe by stopping the door from opening and closing when it shouldn’t. However, if it’s pulled down for no reason, then this can be inconvenient because the door doesn’t work. Our team can identify if the release has been pulled down and put it back in place.
What is the Garage Door Opener?
Your garage door opener is basically a motor that has a range of parts that work together to open and close the door. Usually, a garage door opener is connected to an emergency release, garage door trolly, a set of springs, and the rest of the opening mechanism.
Types of Garage Door Openers
There are different types of garage door openers, which have their own advantages and disadvantages and are specified for different types of garage doors.
Chain-driven Garage Door Openers
A chain-driven garage door opener works with a chain to pull the door open and shut.
Advantages of a Chain-driven Garage Door Opener
A chain-driven opener is quite efficient and powerful, giving you the widest range of options for your garage door (in terms of design, shape, etc.). This kind of opener is best for heavier doors, given it can lift more weight.
In addition, its cheaper than the belt-driven opener.
Disadvantages of a Chain-driven Garage Door Opener
The biggest disadvantage is the noise it makes when it opens and closes the garage door. That is why this type of opener is best used with garages that are detached from the house or further away from bedrooms.
Belt-driven Garage Door Opener
A belt-driven opener uses a belt to drive the door open and shut.
Advantages of a Belt-driven Garage Door Opener
Belt-driven openers are often much quieter, and they run more smoothly, with less chance of damaging the door itself. This kind of opener is best used with garage doors that are part of the house and is in close proximity to bedrooms.
Disadvantages of a Belt-driven Garage Door Opener
A belt-driven opener is less powerful than a chain opener, so if you have a bigger garage door, your probably better off with a chain-driven opener. In addition, belt-driven openers are more expensive, so if your on a budget, this may not be the opener for you.
Wall Mount Garage Door Opener
A wall-mount opener, also known as a jackshaft opener, pulls the door open and shut with an arm mounted on the wall of the garage. This type of opener is generally used in commercial garage doors and high-lift garage doors in residential buildings.
These openers mount on the wall next to the garage door, freeing up the space overhead and opening up the possibilities to maximize your garage space.
