In the garage door industry there are many manufacturers to choose from. Not only do they each offer different degrees of quality they offer different pricing as well. To ensure our customers receive the best quality and pricing, we work with a number of different local manufacturers that meet and exceed our standard for quality and service. We proudly recommend and install Ammar’s products to ensure durable and safe products for our clients. We also recommend and install Liftmaster garage door openers and accessories.
We realize that many different issues can cause your garage doors to work improperly. It is important to gain an understanding of what it is that is wrong. We fix the following issues with the expertise of our employees, as well as, the products provided by Amarr, Liftmaster and Safe-Way.
This is probably 50% of what we do on a weekly basis. Garage Door springs are made out of steel and a typical spring will last about 15,000 cycles, which is how many times the door opens and closes. Once these springs break, there is no way of repairing them and they must be replaced. Replacing a garage door spring is not only dangerous but requires special tools so it is considered a very dangerous repair that should only be done by a professional. Garage Door Guy uses high quality extended life torsion springs made in the U.S.A.
A typical person will operate their garage door 6-8 times a day. After years of use, the steel may begin to weaken and a stress crack appears in one of the sections. Generally as the crack grows the section will begin to sag when the door is in the open position. Unfortunately there is no way of repairing the crack but we can install a reinforcement strut to keep the section from sagging. This is considered a temporary repair and the section or door should be replaced soon. If the section is still manufactured then the section can be replaced, but if not Garage Door Guy recommends and installs Amarr Garage Doors.
After years of use it is common for a remote or wireless keypad to stop functioning. This repair could be as simple as replacing the battery or re-syncing the remote to the opener or it could be more involved and include a new remote or new logic board. When replacing remotes or keypads, Garage Door Guy recommends and uses Liftmaster high quality products and accessories.
Many openers made today are driven by a nylon gear. Over years of use this nylon gear will begin to wear down and eventually shred and will need to be replaced. Generally these gears will come in a kit that will also replace some other commonly wore out components such as bushings. Garage Door Guy uses OEM replacement parts unique to your opener brand.
Some calls we receive will cite noise level as their highest complaint. This does not always mean something needs to be replaced. There are over 30 moving parts on a garage door that require consistent lubrication over the years, generally these parts are just in need of lubrication. Garage Door Guy uses high quality non-drip silicone garage door lubricant and high-temp white lithium grease when lubricating garage doors.
