Frequently Asked Questions
What are the most common problems with garage doors?
Springs are the workhorse of a garage door opening system, and when they start to deteriorate, the overall function of the system will start to plummet. Unfortunately, replacing these springs is not usually a project homeowners can do on their own. The process can be complicated and dangerous for someone that doesn't know what they're doing. Roller tracks can also lose their effectiveness through wear and tear. Overall, there's a wide range of things that can go wrong. Our technicians will gladly help you with an official diagnosis.
How does a garage door 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.
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 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.
What should I do if my door will not open and I need to get my car out right now?
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.
