If your garage door won’t open the chances are your door opener needs some TLC. You should unplug the garage door opener if it is not functioning because you do not want to get electrocuted. The wall switch is often the cause of door opener issues. We can help by testing the wall switch for the opener to see if it needs to be repaired. If the remote that you use to open the garage door does in fact open, but the door does not then the switch repair often can alleviate the problem. We caution people to let us perform the repair because there are live wires and if you do not touch the right one then you can be zapped which can cause injury.
The receiver for the garage door opener often needs to be replaced. If you have a remote to open your garage door and it will work for you, then the receiver probably has an issue and no longer will work. We can replace the receiver and give you a new remote as well. This will help to ensure that the right radio frequency is being used so that others in the area cannot try to access the home through the garage.
A gear drive problem can make your garage door opener stop in its tracks and make a horrible sound when turned on. When this happens, you will need to get a new gear drive. We know from our past experience with our clients that these gear drives tend to fail because they get so worn down. We remove the gear drive by taking it out of its shaft and then we can easily slide in the new gear drive once it has been removed.
If you want to remove the entire garage door opener and replace it, then we can help with the installation process. Installing a new garage door opener takes approximately a few hours. There is a lot of technology that is now available to make your garage experience easier. For example, you can use your cell phone to be able to turn on the sensor on the receiver to open the door. This can be great during the cold months when you do not want to have to get out of your car to open and close your garage door.
Diagnosing a garage door opener problem takes us just a few minutes. We can give you a thorough assessment of what is going on so that you can decide on how you wish to proceed. We will explain to you about how we fix things and give you our advice as to whether or not replacing the entire opener is the most cost effective thing to do. Safety is a huge concern for us so we want to do what is right for you and your budget without sacrificing quality and a long lasting garage door. We hold ourselves to a high standard and want what is best for every client that we take on.
