Michael Davis replaced the tension springs and just about everything else that moves on both of my single car garage doors. I think I paid a premium price ($900) but I also believe I got the quality of service I paid for. Both doors are balanced and glide effortlessly and quietly along the tracks. Michael took the time to inspect and adjust every aspect of the garage door system including the opener (which I installed myself).read more
The tech that serviced your door must not understand simple mechanics. The tracks do not move, so they do not need to be lubricated. All that does is make a mess. The rollers and hinges DO move, so it is logical to lubricate them, at the hinge barrel or pivot point, and in the little area near the stem of the rollers where you can see the bearings. Adding a bit of lube to the torsion spring also cuts down on the friction between the coils and makes the spring glide easier. However, too much will make it spritz out lube as the door opens and closes, and that it less than desirable. Same thing for pulleys on an extension spring door.

In 1993, U.S. law dictated that all garage doors must have a reverse mechanism to prevent the door closing on persons or property. In most models, an infrared beam running across the garage opening acts like a tripwire. Break the beam and the door rises again. This is a legal requirement that ensures the garage door cannot trap people or animals. It's also useful in avoiding accidental damage to your car, bikes left in the way, or other property.
We carry just about every style of garage door you can imagine and can help you choose a style and color that looks great on your home. Garage doors are most commonly made of wood, fiberglass or steel. Steel is the least expensive and most popular type. Once you choose the type of door to best suit your home and your budget, the next step is to choose the look. You can select from a wide variety of textures, such as wood grain, and colors to match the rest of your home. We also offer garage doors with windows on the top panel to allow light to enter. Adding windows will generally add about 15-20% to the price of your product.
Our technician was incredibly fast. In fact, another contractor was at our house at the same time doing another project and made the comment 'wow that garage door guy is flying'. He was very friendly and took the time to explain the system he was installing. He was also on time and the front office staff were very good as well. Would absolutely recommend Precision.
Center and level the first section after you install the brackets. The door must be level even if the floor isn’t, so use shims under the section to level it. The rubber gasket on the bottom section will fill the gaps created by an unlevel floor. To hold the level in place, tape it to the section. To hold the section in place, lightly toenail a 16d nail into the frame and bend it over the section. Add brackets and rollers before setting them in place and stack one section on top of another, toenailing as you go up.

Sears can fix almost any broken garage door opener, regardless of the brand or where you bought it. Trying to repair a garage door opener yourself can be dangerous because of the spring tension. The Sears technicians who repair garage door openers are experts; they have the knowledge and experience to repair the garage door opener correctly and safety.

Step 5: Check for loose hardware, and tighten as needed. On swing-up doors, check the plates where the spring is mounted to be sure the screws are tight, and tighten any loose screws. On roll-up doors, check the hinges that hold the sections of the door together; tighten any loose screws, and replace any damaged hinges. Sagging at one side of the door can often be corrected by servicing the hinges. If a screw hole is enlarged, replace the screw with a longer one of the same diameter, and use a hollow fiber plug, dipped in carpenters' glue, with the new screw. If the wood is cracked at a hinge, remove the hinge and fill the cracks and the screw holes with wood filler. Let the filler dry and then replace the hinge. If possible, move the hinge onto solid wood.
The low rating on the CS is due to the fact that inwas out of town and my wife called because the garage door wouldn't open. We had repairs to the only other exit, and the CS said because it could be opened manually, it was no emergency. She was stuck in the house for over Sixteen hours. No emergency crew came out. Steve, a tech who came out the first time, fixed the door. It is not his fault CS took their sweet time to help a 45 year customer. I commend Steve. I do NOT have anything good to say about CS.

Electric Garage Door Openers – Service and repair of the electric garage door opener itself, including the lift mechanism that pulls the door up and guides it down. This is typically not part of the garage door itself and is serviced and repaired on its own interval. Typical service includes inspection, repair, adjustment, and lubrication if needed. Also, we typically inspect the mounting of the unit as well as its attachment to the door itself.
They sell insulation kits at the local big box hardware store and I cringe every time I see them. The box weighs about 15 pounds, which doesn't sound like a lot. It is definitely enough to un-balance a garage door. The springs are calibrated for the weight of the door, and adding weight makes the door "heavy" for the springs. This means that if you pull an operator disconnect handle when the door is in the open position, the door is likely to descend much more quickly than you anticipate. People have been hurt when a garage door came down on them and the momentum knocked them over. Only add weight if the door springs can be re-torqued or replaced with springs of the proper pull.

Insulation, which increases energy efficiency and can help to lower utility bills, is crucial when a garage door is attached to the home. In this case, doors with high R-values are preferred. This means it has insulation that can keep the heat in. The higher the R-value, the better insulated your garage will be against outside noise and cold and hot air.

Question- I bought a Clopoy coachmen series 8' garage door last April , over the winter the bottom panel got a dent in it [snow blower-rock?] It is about the size of an egg . Called to see if any repair can be done instead of replacing[similar to dent wizard for autos and was advised cant be done and had to replace 3 panels? not going to do that- is there any other opinions on this?
Single panel doors can also be installed with (one piece track type hardware) that folds the door back with a single horizontal track on each side (which is mounted at the top of the wood frame) and a roller, (mounted to the top of the door on each side. A hinge on each side that attaches to the bottom of each side of garage door. Using track hardware, a car can be parked much closer to the door, as the whole door, when in the open position, rests completely inside of the garage door header. Track type hardware has much less arc when raising and lowering the garage door as opposed jamb type hardware.[citation needed]
Great service all around! Friday night issue with other service company… Aaron’s didn’t turn me down in resolving the fact that I had NO use of my door until Monday. They sent a very well experienced technician on Saturday morning. He was prompt, explained everything very well, advised on next service needs (without being sales-y) and did an awesome job! Thanks again!!!

Containment cables. When old extension springs break, the springs and cables become heavy whips that damage cars and even injure people. To solve the whipping problem, manufacturers now offer containment cables that run through the center of side-mounted extension springs. If you have extension springs and don’t plan to replace your door, make sure the springs have these containment cables, or have a professional install them.
The service was super quick from scheduling to completion -- I called late morning for an appointment and was done by early afternoon! I appreciated that the technician had everything he needed right there on the truck. I don't know a thing about garage doors and had never purchased garage products or repair services. My tech, Joe, was very patient with me and worked with me to get my need fixed. Very helpful.
Garage door manufacturers typically produce garage doors fitted with torsion springs that provide a minimum of 10,000 to 15,000 cycles and are guaranteed for three to seven years. One cycle is a single opening and closing sequence. Most manufacturers offer a 30,000 cycle spring. However, it is important to remember that if the weight of the garage door is increased by adding glass, additional insulation, or even several coats of paint, the life of the torsion spring may be greatly reduced. Additionally, springs at highly humid environments, such as coastal regions tend to have a significantly shorter cycle life, due to the corrosive cracking.
Ryan Hudson gets 5 stars for his exemplary service on a warranty service call. He assessed the situation, affected a repair and got the Liftmaster back in good working order. He also checked the other Liftmaster and lubricated both Liftmasters to make sure they were working up to par. I also appreciated his "Garage Door 101" explanations of his procedures. The work was done at my daughter's home, but I will certainly use Precision Door for any future needs at my own home in Woodstock. Thanks very much, Ryan!!
Given the complexity of a garage door and opener system, there are a variety of different areas something could go wrong. If your garage door shakes or is very loud during operation, the garage door closes all the way only to immediately open back up, the garage door opens slowly or closes too quickly, or the garage door opener and remote aren't working at all, you should seek help from a professional garage door repair specialist.

Roberto was very courteous and explained the details of what he was doing. He also pointed out a repair I might consider having done (replacement of the bottom panel of my door) and asked the office to follow up with me on this. Someone did follow up with me and since replacement of the bottom panel is not an option and I would have to replace the door, I decided that I can wait.

Nate was very polite and knowledgeable about our garage door dilemma. He was prompt and earlier than the appointed time. He phoned ahead to alert us of his approximate arrival. He assessed the situation and gave us options to choose from. He educated us about our type of garage door and the opener that is typically used with it. He basically did an overall replacement of all moving parts, (spring, cables, bearings etc..). He made sure that the opener wasn’t damaged in any way from the broken spring on the garage door. He was finished within the hour. Everything works great and we are now able to get our vehicles out. When the spring breaks on your garage door, there is no way you can lift this door. It was a little expensive but at least we didn’t have to buy an entire door assembly.read more

Traditional One Panel: These doors consist of one large panel which tilts to open by employing a spring mechanism to swing upward. The wood version is popular in the South and Southeastern US, where a milder climate keeps the wood from rapidly deteriorating. Traditional garage door designs include Cape, Colonial, Ranch, Tudor and Craftsman. The disadvantage is these doors require a lot of clearance to operate correctly. Sometimes repairs can be difficult because of the heaviness of the door or its inaccessibility. Average cost to repair tilt-up doors is $172.

My opener also has 2 wheels on the top of each side of the door: one with a big spool of line and the other just a pulley wheel. So I also lubricated the axles of those spools. You can watch closely while raising/lowering the door to see where the parts spin and move. Now my door runs much quieter, so I must have done something right! Hopefully this will reduce strain on the motor and make it last longer.
Garage doors cause injury and property damage (including expensive damage to the door itself) in several different ways. The most common causes of injury from garage door systems include falling doors, pinch points, improperly adjusted opener force settings and safety eyes, attempts at do-it-yourself repair without the proper knowledge or tools, and uncontrolled release of spring tension (on extension spring systems).
