Depending on how much you use the door, a well-maintained door can last up to 25 years. Our systems are rated for as many as 25,000 cycles. For example, if you use your door 10 times a week for 20 years, that would add up to 10,400 cycles.

Often, we encounter failing garage door springs that need to be repaired or changed. These springs allow us to open and close doors quickly. Because of the weight of garage doors, these springs are sturdy and carry a heavy load. Both torsion and extension springs are amazing inventions, but they don’t last forever. For the average homeowner, replacing one of these springs is relatively tricky and possibly even dangerous. The task requires specialized tools and knowledge that many home handymen don’t possess.

We don't charge hidden fees or other accessories. What you see is what you get. Call (704) 228-7474 for a quote today!
Many doors feature a cord used to pull the door off the ground temporarily. Bear in mind, though, garage doors are pretty heavy. Don't worry if you can't lift the cord. If you can't seem to find this cord or don't think you can safely use it, feel free to call us.
Sometimes, a simple obstruction blocks the path of the door. It's a good idea to check the system for debris or other objects that may be snagging in the tracks. If a sensor is misaligned, that can trigger a system failure.
Give the system a quick pass. Something could be blocking a sensor, etc. However, don't start taking apart your system. We advise against doing this for these reasons:
- People have been hurt trying to move doors without professional help. If a door is not moving, it can be unsafe for those nearby.
- Garage door springs are strong devices, but they are tricky to fix without the knowledge and proper tools. All of our repairs are trusted by certified technicians.
- A garage door could be the largest moving piece of a house. If a door is poorly maintained, it can create other structural issues.
Garage door openers use a combination of force from a motor, springs, and cables. Rollers guide doors along a track when the door is in motion. Motors assist in regulating how high and low the door should be. Springs and cables are what suspend the door in the air.
Like many other appliances, garage doors and their accessories are expected to last decades. That can be a long time in the business world, especially for anything specialized. Manufacturers come and go, and so do models. That said, we always try our hardest to find the right parts or suitable replacements.
Deciphering which parts are needed for a door can be difficult for even a skilled handyman. We like to get things right the first time. We recommend you have us find the parts for you or use our other companies DIY Garage Door Parts helpful videos. Our experienced technician knows the models, their respective parts, and the right price for them.
Provided that tracks and rollers are maintained in good condition, rollers should last a very long time. However, if there is a bend in the track, that will sometimes cause a roller to wear differently. We use sealed bearing nylon rollers that are built to last.
Many things could be happening. A button could be jammed in the remote. Nearby objects could be interfering with a sensor. Our technician will be able to determine the root cause rather quickly.
A garage door opener is made of the following parts.
It's a good idea to buy your parts through us because our team knows what it is doing. Other online companies may not have an accurate catalog. It's best to know what you're getting. We don't want you to be stuck with parts you can't use.
Many factors go into this choice such as your budget, your taste, and the style of your house. ProTec Garage Door is able to install and maintain any door on the market.
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.
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.
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.
