All of our repair services come with a 25 point safety inspection and lubrication of all moving parts. All manufacturers warranty their garage door hardware for 3-5 years and a lot of these parts will wear out before the garage door panels themselves. These parts include hinges, rollers, cables, tracks, opener motors, gears, circuit boards, eye beams and much more.

There are many different types of repairs that are needed for owning and maintaining a fully functional garage door and opener.

Garage Door Repair Services We Offer

8 X 7 GARAGE DOORS

New garage doors come in many different sizes but the most popular size for homes having 2 small doors are the 8 X 7’s. These doors are the on about 65% of the homes you see now with 2 individual doors instead of a single 2 car garage door. The only bad thing about having 2 separate doors is that if the doors are over 5-7 years old and one door is damaged and needing replaced the other door will usually have to be replaced to make sure they are the same exact style. The same goes for trying to find replacement panels or sections. The manufacturers will change the tongue and groove every 5 to 7 years as they are learning more and more about garage doors and better ways to build them and make them safer and last longer. So before calling a garage door company for an issue with replacing anything on one specific door you must first locate the manufacturer name and model of the door. This will save you a service call and definitely worth the $29-$49 depending on the city you live in. The more information you can provide the better off you will be when it comes time to get a quote for new garage doors.

9 X 7 GARAGE DOORS

The 9 X 7 Garage Doors started getting popular during the great SUV crave. That’s when everyone was driving the big trucks and SUV’s. Back when the gas was still affordable. These over-sized doors made it easier and roomier for these bigger vehicles and a lot of builders started framing the doors for these doors and they have become standard as well. The price isn’t a whole lot more than the 8 X 7 either. The same thing happens with these doors too. Once you go to replace one you will probably have to replace the pair to ensure everything is consistent. We offer some of the most styles and choices available with our 2 manufacturers using Amarr & CHI Doors. If you see something you like off of either site please feel free to call for an estimate!

16 X 7 DOUBLE CAR GARAGE DOORS

Double Car Garage Doors are the norm now days and are sometimes combined with a small 8 X 7 or 9 X 7 beside it. Most homeowners today realize how important the garage door is to the homes ease of access and they have completely taken over as the primary access door to our home. 16 X 7 doors need to be more sturdy and supported because of the width of the door and in the state of Florida you will now see at least one support strut on every section and in some hurricane zoned areas you will see 2 on the top and bottom sections which helps protect the door from blowing in. These codes have made the garage door prices sky rocket in the area because of the extra supports makes the door heavier which in turn means you need bigger torsion springs. The extension springs are rarely used at all for this very reason. Most garage doors in Florida today either have torsion springs or Wayne Dalton torque master systems. I would highly recommend the torsion spring with either the Amarr or CHI Doors.

IMPROVE CURB APPEAL

There is no easier way to improve the curb appeal of your property in an instant than installing a beautiful and functional garage door. This also explains why you need to look into the overall design of your home first before choosing a garage door. By selecting a garage door that complements the architectural and aesthetic design of your home, you are well on your way to enhancing the façade of your home, without having to spend on costlier home renovations.

ECONOMICAL HEATING

Choosing an insulated garage door eliminates the need for additional heating within the garage. Heating requirements may also be lessened in areas located next to the garage. By putting an insulated garage door in a design that complements your home, you can lower heating expenses considerably and enhance curb appeal at the same time.

PROTECTION

Did you know that a mouse can squeeze in through a hole that’s less than a half inch wide? Did you realize that ants and other insects can crawl in through tiny cracks and fissures? Have you ever considered that your old, crumbling, gaping garage door is practically putting out the welcome mat for pests? If your garage door is rotted, askew, or gaping, there is likely space for insects and vermin to get into your garage, and one step closer to your living spaces. Rodents love to make their homes in garages because they are dry, relatively warm, and often contain ample food sources like garbage cans and even stored dog food. But installing one can help keep those critters out. When the garage door company puts in the replacement door, they’ll make sure it hangs correctly and seals properly to eliminate those holes and cracks. An easy way to protect your garage and family from insects and rodents–and the diseases they spread–installing a new one can go a long way toward safeguarding your home.

SAFETY & SECURITY

A broken garage door that fails to close properly is an invitation to burglars. If you use part of the garage as an office or if you also keep valuables inside the garage, replacing a worn-out garage door is all the more important. A garage constructed or attached to a residence can serve as an entryway for burglars.
