It's another way that you can enter and exit through one single point - which means if there were ever an emergency with either side of this property, then everyone would have easy access thanks to their location near each other! And since these doors get exposed day after relentless wear-and-tear from daily use, the parts tend to break.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I open my door in an emergency?

Sometimes, power outages or electrical problems can keep your unit from working. Some systems are equipped with a pulley that allows you to lift the door manually. If you can locate it, feel free to give it a try, but don't cause any harm to yourself or others by overexerting. We can use our equipment to pry open the door in cases like this. Call us at (704) 228-7474 to learn more.

How does my opener work?

Dozens of parts go into a garage door unit. In each unit, you'll find rollers, springs, cables, and a motor. The motor is for driving the door up and down the wall along the rolling track. There are also sensors to respond to your controls. We're familiar with all of these parts and that knowledge proves handy when it comes time to replace them.

What should I do if my door will not open?

Some doors have a backup cord that you can pull to lift the door by hand. However, with garage doors weighing hundreds of pounds, we understand if you're not able to do this. If you are having trouble locating this mechanism or don't feel comfortable using it, feel free to give us a call.

How long does a door last?

The longevity of your door depends on how much wear and tear you subject it to. Some people are homebodies. Others are constantly on the go. Ultimately, the usable life of a door is rated in cycles instead of years. Some systems can last more than 20,000 rotations. Regular tune-ups are a great way to keep your door going strong. Eventually, a garage door replacement will be required, and you can rest assured Protec will provide fair, competitive pricing with the highest quality workmanship.

How do you replace a garage door roller?

Garage door rollers are under a lot of pressure to perform. Obstructions in tracks can sometimes cause them to wear unevenly.
