Frequently Asked Questions
Where is ProTec Garage Door located?
We can perform repairs in the greater Charlotte area and many areas in the Piedmont such as Hickory and Winston-Salem. We feel very privileged to be one of the premier garage door service providers in western North Carolina.
What usually goes wrong with garage doors?
One of the most frequent problems is the springs. They do all the heavy lifting and eventually break down and lose strength. Most people don’t have the special tools lying around that are needed to replace them. Electrical problems can also result in a failing door system.
How much years can I get out of a garage door?
This varies with the usage. Some people are always in-and-out, and others consider themselves homebodies. We think of our systems in terms of cycles, rather than years. We use springs that are built to last up to 30,000 cycles. That can last you for decades and can add value if you ever plan on selling the house.
How do I fix a garage door remote?
Often, if a remote is failing, the problem could be the batteries. Try to replace them or see if there’s corrosion where the old ones were. Twigs and dirt can interfere with sensors. The remote could also need to be programmed again. Our technicians are well-versed in the inner workings of remotes and the instructions that come with them.
My vehicle’s stuck inside a broken garage door. What do you recommend?
We understand these things tend to happen at the most inconvenient times, but please do NOT try to lift or pry a door by yourself. We cannot emphasize this enough. It poses a danger to you and the structure of your house. We work with broken doors every day and have equipment at our disposal to raise a door safely. Call us at (704)837-1575, and we’ll send a technician out as soon as possible.
How does a garage door opener work?
There are a few different components that go into a garage door opening system. These parts include motors, cables, tension springs, screws, tracks, wheels, and the door itself. The door is held in the air by cables and springs. When it’s time for the door to close, the motor powers the unit slowly down tracks that are mounted to the wall and the system responds to either your control panel or remote.
What should I do if my garage door won’t close completely?
First, make sure there’s nothing in the way. If you don’t see anything on the ground, give the tracks a thorough inspection. Sometimes, sticks or leaves can sneak in and interfere with the wheels. You’ll also want to look over your sensors. A remote can also fail. We can help you rule these problems out one-by-one.
What parts go into a garage door?
We’d be happy to help you track down the parts you need. First, we want to make sure you’re getting the right part for the job. Then comes the issue of where to get them. Looking through catalogs and websites can be an arduous process. Retailers mismatch models all the time and ship the wrong parts. We have relationships with our trusted suppliers that help us get parts at lower prices than what a homeowner could find independently. Our technicians can install them too, so it’s done right the first time.
Can I repair a garage door on my own?
It’s a good idea to review the main components to make sure it’s not an easy fix, but we don’t recommend you dismantle anything or attempt to lift a door yourself. Garage doors are tremendously heavy and can crush a person, causing injury and even death. We don’t want your door problem to be compounded by medical bills when our certified technicians are just a phone call away.
What would a new garage door cost?
The cost of a new garage door is surprisingly affordable, and installing a new door is something worth considering if your current unit is failing. If you give us a call, we can show you some options and give you a quote in no time.
