TAKE CARE OF REPAIRS RIGHT AWAY
Do you have an older garage door? If so, then we may need to replace some of the components. One of the most common parts we'll need to replace is your garage door springs. When the springs get old, rusty or break, the opener may have a bit of a hard time trying to open the garage door. And even if it can, the whole mechanism will still need to undertake a full spring replacement so the opener doesn’t wear out too quickly. A spring replacement will add some new life to your garage door and help the opener pull the garage door up so that it can open correctly and flawlessly every time.
ROLLERS ARE USUALLY THE FIRST TO GO
If there are one or more rollers broken in your garage door assembly, the whole garage door may not be able to open simply because the broken rollers won’t allow it. Over time, rollers can chip, crack, or even fall off the door if not properly maintained. When this happens, the door will most likely experience a partial or full jam. It’ll no longer be able to open or close because it will have an almost impossible time staying on the rail. Our professionals can easily find out which rollers are causing the problem and replace them with new nylon rollers.
STAY CLEAR OF THE GARAGE DOOR
The first thing we’ll look at is an object that is lodged in the garage door rails. In most cases, the item is small enough that it doesn’t get noticed. It could be a small stick or even a pebble. When something gets lodged in the track, it can become very difficult to get out. You may be able to dislodge it by banging on the track a few times, but most of the time, it will take some specialized equipment and an experienced professional to dislodge it and free your garage door.
REGULAR SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE IS KEY
If you haven’t had your garage door inspected in a while, don't worry, you’re not alone. Many homeowners tend to neglect their garage doors. Garage door maintenance, however, is crucial in keeping your system working correctly all year round. We provide complete garage door maintenance services, which include spring replacement, cable replacement, and realigning your garage door tracks. If there is a problem, we, at Prolift Garage Doors, will work tirelessly to find and correct it.
