A broken garage door spring can cause a door to not open. Since garage door springs typically last 10k cycles of opening your garage door, most homeowners will get about 6 – 12 years out of a spring depending on how often they open their garage door. There are two typical types of springs: extension and torsion. Extension springs will be located on each side of your garage door. If you have a torsion spring, there will be one above your garage door in the middle. Each of these springs work on a counter balance system. This means that they do all the heavy lifting and carry a lot of tension. If a spring breaks, it typically makes a loud noise similar to a gunshot. Most people know their spring is broken because of that noise in combination with the fact the motor cannot lift the door. However, there is no need to worry, we can perform a spring replacement for you! Click below to get a free quote or call 203-980-5722 to schedule an appointment.
Garage door cables are located on either side of your garage door, running through cable drums and clipping to the door’s bottom brackets. They work closely with your springs to create the counterbalance system for your door. Because cables help hold a significant amount of the door’s weight, loose or broken cables will often prevent your garage door from opening. Cables can become frayed and break over time or become loose from poorly balanced springs. In either case, our expert technicians can help! We can perform a cable replacement or reattach your cables into the drum to get your door working again quickly. As with attempting to repair any broken garage door parts, you have to careful when handling a door with a broken or loose cable. Do not risk accidental injury to yourself or a family member. Instead, call today to schedule an appointment with us for garage door cable repair or replacement!
Door Out of Track
Garage doors fall out of track often. This mishap is typically due to either a fallen roller or loose cables on one or both sides. A trained professional, in many cases, can put the door back and get it running again without damaging the door. Keep in mind that the garage door is the biggest, heaviest moving part of your home, so please be careful walking around or under a door that is out of track. Instead of risking damage to yourself, your car, or further damage to your garage door system, call us! Our expert technicians can get your garage door up and running again quickly to ensure your family’s safety and the future reliability of your garage door.
Broken Garage Door Opener
Garage door opener repair is a common service we have to perform for our customers. Your opener is the motor that does most of the heavy lifting to open and close your door. It will be located either in the middle of your garage on the ceiling or on the wall beside your door, depending on the type of opener. When you have a broken garage door opener, you will most likely be able to lift your door manually even though the keypad or clicker won’t open the door. You will be able to open the door manually because your springs, cables, and roller should still be intact and balancing the weight of the door. Of course, you should be careful when manually opening your door and stop immediately if you have too much resistance. To get your garage door opener working again, contact us to schedule an appointment with one of our experienced technicians. We will do our best to get your opener functioning again. If your opener is too worn to repair or if replacement parts can’t be found, we can also offer you New Garage Door Opener Installation.
Horizontal sections connected by hinges are the parts that make up garage doors. Accidentally backing into garage door or uneven weight from a worn spring can cause your sections to be damaged. This involves denting or warping which will stop the door from opening completely. Fortunately, in many cases, we can replace the broken elements if the original manufacturer is still making that product. However, if there are multiple sections to your door, several damaged components, or if parts on the door are toward the end of their life cycle, you may want to consider a door replacement.

Garage Door Rollers Out of Track
Inside the tracks that run along the sides of your garage door, you will have rollers. These allow your door to smoothly come up and down. However, these can pop out of their tracks when you have damaged sections or an unbalanced door. You will know your rollers are out of track because you will be able to see the wheels stuck outside the track. This will prevent your door from opening and could damage sections of your door if you try to open the door manually. To fix this issue, one of our technicians can reset the roller into the track and perform a maintenance check to see what caused the roller to pop out. If your rollers have not popped out of place, but you have noticed noisy operation, you may need roller replacement. Like all garage door parts, rollers have a standard lifespan of 10-15,000 cycles which means you will need roller replacement every 10-20 years. We will replace your current rollers with a high quality product to ensure the long term functionality of your garage door system.

High Lift Conversion
Converting or installing high lift tracks is considered a specialty service because doing it properly is important. Installing a high lift track requires having the correct measurements and engineering the setup needed for the tracks, drums, cables, and springs to function. High lift tracks allow the door to go closer to the ceiling, so people who want to stack cars on a lift in their garage use a high lift setup.

Garage Door Service
For both residential and commercial doors, we recommend annual garage door servicing. Our maintenance check includes lubricating, tightening, and making minor adjustments to the door and motor. This annual check allows our expert technicians to identify any underlying problems before they cause damage to your entire system or create an issue that inconveniences your day. If you do not service the door, you are more likely to end up with a broken garage door that will cost substantially more in repair or possible replacement. Instead, pay a little for that annual maintenance and save significantly more down the road. Contact us and we can schedule annual service for your home or business today!
