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.

If you think you have a situation the cannot be fixed, call Golden Garage Door Services, LLC to schedule an appointment. Let our professionals come out and diagnose the problem, and recommend a solution that will be best for your garage door, operator and pocket.

Reinforcing a Garage Door

A common problem with garage doors messing up is because when they are installed they are not reinforced properly.  The pictures below demonstrate a garage door that was not properly reinforced.  The arm that connects the door to the motor rail will snatch that center stile away from the door causing the door to bow and lose its integrity.

  
This is a problem that can be easily fixed if the top panel is not badly damaged. First, the technician will take some punch angle and mount it to the top of the door to strengthen the integrity of the top panel.  Then, he will disconnect the motor arm and place a reinforcement arm to the center stile. By adding these two things to a top panel it will strengthen it and make the operable again.  It is a much less expensive fix than replacing the entire top section.
