As experienced garage door repair professionals, our technicians can treat serious opener problems and prevent a lot of potential malfunctions.Since the opener is the part of your automatic door system that allows it to operate without you exerting yourself, its working condition needs to be optimal at all times.
The Most Common Issues
Openers are electro-mechanical devices, which means that can suffer from a diverse range of problems. Whether its a worn out motor gear that's preventing your door from opening or a part of the interior circuit board that's keeping you from being able to close your door at all, our technicians can help. We'll perform a thorough examination of your opener unit to determine the cause, and then we'll repair or replace the damaged component without delay.
The Safety Mechanism
Modern garage door openers come equipped with photo-electric eyes that are installed on each side of the opening to your garage. These safety sensors will alert the system when a person or an object gets in its way and will force it to reverse its operation. If your sensors become misaligned, however, they could fail to properly detect an obstacle, which could result in an accident. Our technician can correctly realign these delicate components and make sure their lenses are clean and unscratched.
The Different Types
Before buying a new unit, you may want to gain some information about the three main types of drive systems these devices employ. Chain-drive openers and belt-drive ones are similar in the way they operate, apart from the fact that one type uses a chain and the other a conveyer belt, of course. However, the main difference between the two is their noise output. Belt-drive units are famous for their quiet operation, and they can be an excellent choice for homeowners with a bedroom near their garage. Screw-drive openers, which use a threaded rod in order to push and pull the garage door, are usually preferred when heavier doors are involved. Since they consist of fewer moving parts, they require less maintenance than the belt and chain drive models.
