Garage Door Repairmen Ready on Your Schedule!

Experiencing issues with your garage door opener? No need to fear, our garage door repairmen are here to help! Through years of working with garage door openers, we recognize the common signs of malfunction and can quickly put together a garage door opener repair plan. Your overhead door system cannot function well without a quality garage door opener, but our garage door repairmen are trustworthy and friendly, here to ensure your opener is reliable.

Why Garage Door Sensors Are Important

Garage door sensors are extremely important to the safety of your overhead door system. They work by connecting to the garage door opener and signaling when they detect movement underneath the garage door. For families with kids and pets, this is paramount to garage door safety. It’s common for sensors to become covered in dust or have their photo eyes misaligned, which then stops their operation. In this situation, the opener may flash that there’s an issue and stop the door from moving. It’s critical that this mechanism is in place, as the door can’t operate safely when the sensors are not working.

Most Common Signs of a Broken Garage Door Opener

  • Garage door moves slowly.
  • Garage door makes abnormal grinding noises.
  • Garage door keypads or remotes stop working.
  • Garage door won’t open or close.
  • Garage door moves inconsistently.
  • Garage door moves a couple of inches before reversing.
  • Garage door opener is approaching 10-20 years old.

Try replacing the batteries in your remote and restarting your opener. If neither of those work, then call a trusty garage door repairman to fix the issue.

You can! Simply disengage your opener by pulling the cord that hangs down. You should then be able to manually open and close your garage door.

If you want a quieter garage door opener, consider getting a belt drive opener. These are the quietest openers on the market. An insulated garage door can also help with noise control.

Highly recommend! Called early on a Saturday morning, and they immediately came out to look at our garage door. They showed us everything that needed to be repaired, and discussed pricing with us. Pricing was great! All repairs were completed within the hour. Once everything was complete, they showed us everything that had been repaired and explained to us how to keep it maintained! Very nice and easy to work with. We would definitely use again in the future. Thank you!!
