Garage Door Broken Spring

The pictures here depict common garage door problems experienced by homeowners.  This scenario needs to be addressed in order to prevent further damage to your garage door and  garage door operator.  Garage doors are easily damaged by homeowners when they are not aware of the broken spring, whether torsion or extension.  Many people feel that they need a new operator to fix the problem.  However if you do not realize that you have a broken spring and continue to use your operator; you will damage that unit resulting in replacement.  This is why it is always best to consult a professional before making a costly mistake in repairing your garage door.

Garage Doors…There Is No Job We Can’t Handle

We recently were contacted by a previous customer whose garage door operators were old and on their last leg. The customer decided to get 2 LiftMaster Chain Drive operators and a keyless entry. His home was built in the 1940’s and had it’s original garage doors still in place. They were solid wood doors with no windows and they were heavy as can be. The original motors were mounted in between the rafters and in the insulation which made it impossible to make any repairs or adjustments without taking them down. The old operators were also originally installed to the garage door off centered.  Although the job may have taken longer than a normal install, the customer was amazed with the difference and even stated “So that’s how they are suppose to work” with a slight chuckle. Below are pictures of the new installation and how old the hardware on the doors were.

New Garage Doors on New Construction

New Garage DoorsThis is a job in Briarfield in which the home owners were building their dream home.  We installed 4- 9 foot wide by 10 foot high steel garage doors that had a dark wood grain finish and 4 belt drive operators.  Belt drive operators are excellent to have in your home especially when your garage is under a bed room or a nursey. Because they are ran by a belt they are very quiet when running. We also use all commercial grade hardware on the doors which also aids in the quietness of your garage doors.

If My Garage Door Is Broken, Do I Need To Replace My Motor?

A lot of clients make the mistake of purchasing an operator for their door when it is not necessary.  Always remember that an operator’s life is determined by the weight of the door.

DO NOT Buy Unnecessary Items!!! Let Golden Garage Door Services give you a free estimate.  In most cases you don’t even need to replace your motor, you probably just need a part replaced.  Give us a call so we can determine exactly what the problem is and get your garage door rolling again.

 

Is My Garage Door Racked?

Is My Garage Door Racked?

            Prior to my career in the garage door business, I would have had the same look on my face that some of you might have now, if asked this question.  Is my garage door racked? Well let’s break it down, what is a racked door.  Racked is simply garage door lingo for a door that is hanging crooked in the track.  Now if this is what is going on at your house, don’t panic!!!  Also don’t try to move it yourself.  As of this moment your door is inoperable.  This is extremely unstable and could potentially fall out of the track completely.

            A racked door can happen due to old springs.  If the springs are old they can lose tension which will cause slack in your cables.  This causes the weight of the door to not be lifted evenly, resulting in your door falling out of the track.  It is fixable, but you should always contact a highly train professional. Don’t let this happen to you!garage door out of the track
