Is your garage door experiencing any of the following issues?

  • broken extension spring (spring on either side of the door)
  • garage door won’t open
  • garage door won’t close
  • broken torsion spring (spring above the door opening)
  • broken hinge/roller/pulley
  • broken or frayed cable
  • garage door opener hums but doesn’t engage the door
  • damaged or bent section
  • remote and/or keypad not functioning

The life span of garage doors and openers varies. Regular maintenance will increase their longevity. If your garage door is 20+ years, a replacement instead of a repair may be a more cost effective option. The same advice applies to garage door openers when they reach 15+ years.
