Avoid emergency garage door repair scams online

Along with many other online scams, we are sad to report an increase in the number of Internet garage door repair scams. In these cases, lead companies put up websites and optimize them to rank well in the search engines for communities. The problem is that these aren’t even Charlotte, North Carolina, companies. Instead, they are simply marketing companies that probably aren’t located in North Carolina. Often, they aren’t even located in the United States.

The result of calling the toll-free phone numbers on these sites is simply getting connected with a call center. Again, this call center is probably not local, and it may not even be in the U.S. If you request emergency garage door repairs, you have no idea who will show up at the door to your house or your business. It certainly won’t be a company that’s associated with the website. It will just be whoever purchased the sales lead.

These so-called repair services are famous for overcharging for simple repairs, not guaranteeing their work, and in the worst cases, using the sales call to gain entry into your building for a criminal purpose.

At ProTec Garage Door, we know that you have choices about which business you choose to call for garage door repairs, installations, and maintenance. We urge you to consider checking out any company with which you plan to do business to make sure that the business is really a licensed, local business. Of course, we hope you choose to call us first. In many cases, we get called out to “fix” the “repairs” that were made by a no-name repair person the first time.

Broken garage door spring repair specialists.

One of the most common and urgent tasks that we handle here in Charlotte is the repair of broken extension or torsion springs. Average garage doors are awkward to handle and can weigh hundreds of pounds. Besides that, garage door springs are under a large amount of tension. To get these springs repaired quickly and safely, you need the services of local professionals who show up with the right tools and the expertise to replace those broken springs fast.

We always use high-cycle garage door springs with a rating of 25,000 to 30,000 cycles. Standard garage door springs are usually only rated for 8,000 to 10,000 cycles. Our stronger springs should last for three times as long, so you won’t have to worry about broken garage door spring repairs again for a very long time.

Many large garage doors have more than one spring. Our technicians will almost always advise you to get all of the springs replaced at the same time. This is because the new spring won’t be in balance with the old, worn springs. Besides, if one spring has already broken, the others are accidents waiting to happen. Getting a whole set of new springs will virtually always end up saving you time and money.

Brand-new garage doors.

One simple way to greatly improve your home’s external appearance is to replace the garage doors with new ones. We can provide you with professionally installed residential and commercial garage doors. You can choose rugged, steel doors that hold up under hard use and rough weather conditions. Alternatively, you might choose eco-friendly doors that help keep your home insulated and are manufactured from sustainable materials. We can always find the perfect door to match and enhance your home’s style.

Garage door operators, keypads, remotes and electronics.

We can repair and install all sorts of garage door electronics. Besides just replacing remotes or repairing garage door openers, we can also offer you the latest in garage door keypad systems. Imagine how convenient it would be if your family or employees had a code to get into your home if they ever forgot their keys. The latest garage door electronics can make access to your house or building much more convenient and secure. Once these programmable systems get installed, you are always free to change the codes.

Often, we encounter failing garage door springs that need repaired or changed. These springs allow us to open and close garage doors easily.

For the average homeowner, replacing one of these springs is fairly difficult and possibly even a bit dangerous. The task requires specialized tools and knowledge that many home handymen don’t possess.

What should I do if my garage door remote won't work?

First, take a look at your batteries and see if they need to be replaced. Occasionally, the remote can be reprogrammed, and that will take care of things. Dust and leaves have been known to get in the way of a sensor too. This would also be a good opportunity to review the manufacturer's instructions.

Why does my garage door stop halfway?

As time goes by, parts weaken. Because many parts are under constant pressure, they can be compromised with repeated use. Each of our technicians has a working knowledge of garage door parts and how likely they are to fail.

Why won't my garage door won't open or close in cold weather?

Garages are exposed to wider temperature ranges than other areas of the house. While surfaces and metals can expand in hot weather, they constrict in the wintertime. The elements can sometimes harden gunk that sits in the tracks. Check the flow of your track to see if they can be wiped clean of leaves or other objects.
