How Do I Know If I Need to Schedule Repair?

Sometimes, when things go wrong with your garage door, you wonder if it’s a simple fix that you can do yourself. There are a few things you can do to see if you can fix the problem. Here are some common problems we see and what you can do:

 
  • Garage door starts to open before closing again: This could be the force control on your opener. Look at your springs to see if they are cracked or split into two pieces. If they are intact, try adjusting the force control settings on your opener. If that doesn’t work, then give us a call because it could still indicate a problem with your torsion springs.
  • Garage door closes halfway before opening back up: Check your sensors to see that they are aligned and make sure there is nothing in the path of your garage door. If this still doesn’t work, call us to schedule repair.
  • Opener light blinks while trying to operate: Many opener manufacturers equip their openers with different amount of blinking lights for different issues. Count how many times the light blinks and give us a call so we can help you figure out the issue.
  • Loud, grinding noise during operation: This can be either the gears in your opener or your rollers on your door. Try to lubricate the rollers with a water based lubricant and if the problem persist, give us a call.

What to Do in Preparation for the Technician

If you do end up needing us to come out and do the repair for you, there are a few things you can do to get ready for our technician. Make sure you park your car somewhere else for the day and clear the workspace of any toys or tools to keep the area safe for us. Also, make sure everyone, including your kids, know that we will be working there and to not go anywhere near the garage.

Why Can’t I Just Do the Repair Myself?

We get asked this from time to time. Most garage door repairs require extensive knowledge of garage doors as well as special equipment in order to be done correctly. Garage doors are also probably the heaviest piece of equipment in your home and we see far too many people injured by trying to repair their own doors.

The most common repair we do is the torsion springs and those are under tremendous amounts of pressure. For your safety, we would rather just do the repair and not see anyone get hurt. You can take advantage of this time to relax and let someone else do all the work.

We provide a quality experience with great customer service from beginning to end.

This company is fabulous!  The tech Cameron noticed my gfi switch was flipped fixed and didn't charge me for a bunch of stuff that I didn't need.  Explained the services they offered when asked.  Very friendly and professional.   I will use again, came out within a reasonable amount of time from time call placed.

Alfredo Guillermo was Awesome, he was able to get my Garage door running smooth. He went above and beyond assisting in not only replacing the broken parts but also showing what possibly contributed to an overworked spring/motor. Garage opens quieter than it ever has, thanks again!

Your technician "Cory" was very polite and professional. He was also knowledgeable of your services/products. I will sure be using you for any future needs and recommending you to others
