Garage Door Spring Replacements
Garage Door Spring Replacements are the number one most common repair for garage doors today! Spring replacements are a very common occurrence in our industry and we specialize in this phase of garage door repairs. Our trucks are fully stocked with every torsion & extension spring used on standard overhead doors today. We always recommend replacing both springs no matter if they are torsion or extension, since both springs will have the same wear and tear. Garage Doors have replaced most homes front doors these days. People have replaced their front door keys for garage door remotes and keypads, so the life expectancy will vary from home to home. There are many different manufacturers and materials on the market today and springs come in various sizes. Springs are measured by the weight they are able to lift with a certain amount of tension applied. The weight of a garage door will vary by the material that it I made of and whether it has windows, insulation and if it is wind-loaded. This is the main reason we give a price range for extension & torsion spring repairs. Extension spring pricing ranges from $179-$199 depending on the weight of the door, while torsion springs will cost between $229-$299. We always replace both springs and give a 25 point safety inspection, tighten all loose nuts & bolts and lube all moving parts. If you garage door opener will not open as you hit the garage door remote or wall button then look at the torsion bar or at the springs that run along the sides of the tracks and look for a separation in the springs. If you see one then call Affordable Garage Doors today. Do not keep opening and closing the garage door with a broken spring because you could strip the worm gear in your garage door opener.
Garage Door Opener Repairs
Garage Door Opener Repairs are also a very common service for our industry and the 2 most common repairs are eye-beam and circuit board issues. They can resemble each other while trouble shooting them because the door will open as it normally does but you will have to hold the garage door button down to close the door. The first thing you must do as a homeowner is to make sure that nothing is obstructing the eye-beams from aligning directly at one another and to make sure that there is a light on both eye-beams. They are usually a red & green light or a green & orange light. If the lights are both lit and you still are having to hold the wall button to close the door then it is more than likely a circuit board failure. It is either by lighting or a power surge. We always trouble shoot this with a set of eye-beams that we plug right into your opener that are on a piece of angle iron that are about a ½ apart and that we know are good then we hit the button and if the door will close properly then we know it is only the eye-beams. If that doesn’t allow the door to close then we know it is either a circuit board or the circuit board and the eye-beams. If both are damaged we always recommend getting a new garage door opener because the price to replace these 2 issues will be close to the price to replace the whole garage door opener. If you are having problems that sound like this please don’t hesitate to call and we can get an experienced garage door technician out to you as soon as possible.
