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. It is best that you have your door evaluated before purchasing a new operator. Reason being that a new operator will not last as long with an existing unbalanced garage 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

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.
 

Here at Golden Garage Door Services we have trained technicians that can fix your garage door no matter the problem.  If we can’t fix it, we offer some of the best prices in town to replace your door.  So give us a call at 205-907-8179.
