Frequently Asked Questions
What are the most common problems with garage doors?
The garage door springs are the backbone of any garage door system, and over time, the wear and tear will start to cause your door to fail. Unfortunately, replacing worn-out springs is not very easy and, if not done properly, can cause greater harm to your system. Roller tracks are a common problem as well, which over time can cause the door to open ineffectively. Our team of experts can diagnose the problem and have you up and running again in no time.
How does a garage door opener work?
The typical garage door consists of rollers, springs, cables, sensors, and a motor. The motor is the heart of the garage door and is used for driving the door up and down the wall along the roller tracks. The sensors respond to not only the remote and the wall switch but also the safety sensors which keep young ones, pets, and your property protected. When it comes time for repair, don’t forget to call the experts here at ProTec Garage Door.
How can I open my garage door in an emergency?
Power outages and electrical problems can keep your garage door system from working. Most systems are equipped with a pulley, which allows you to raise and shut the garage door when the system is not working. If your door fails to open due to power or electrical issues and you do not have a pulley, please contact our team. We have the tools to open your door.
What should I do if my door will not open and I need to get my car out right away?
Most garage doors have a backup cord, which you can pull to lift the door by hand. This can be difficult to get to if the car is in the garage, due to the location of the cord. This can also be awkward for just one person to attempt while the car is in the garage as well. If you are having a problem locating this cord or you feel uncomfortable trying it, feel free to call us.
