What is So Special About Commercial Garage Doors?
While any garage door repair company can fix residential garage doors, you need specialists to take care of the garage doors that guard your business.
Besides the fact that commercial garage doors are much larger than residential ones, there are also deeper differences in their design and construction, as well as their functional and aesthetic qualities.
Commercial doors are also much more expensive than residential ones, and they are also more durable – they need to be since they are meant for industrial use, after all.
Most commercial types are overhead doors that roll up to the ceiling.
They are made either from an aluminum blend or galvanized steel, which means that if the door opener does not function, they are very difficult to open and close.
Reasons Why Commercial Garage Doors Need Repairs
Here are the most common reasons why your commercial garage doors may not be working properly:
- Broken or Worn Out Springs
If your garage doors are not opening and closing properly, the most common reason is because the springs that help lift these heavy doors are either worn out or broken. The only way to fix this problem is to have the old springs replaced with new ones.
- Damaged or Worn Out Rollers
The rollers are what help the garage doors move smoothly up or down and since commercial garage doors are used so frequently, they will wear out or get damaged eventually.
- Frayed or Damaged Cables
Along with the springs, the cables on a commercial garage door help lift and lower these heavy metal doors. These cables are critical to the smooth functioning of a garage door, and with the heavy use that commercial doors experience, they need to be replaced regularly.
- Damaged Panels or Sections
Most commercial garage doors are made up of panels or sections that can be rolled up to the ceiling. With heavy use, these panels can get damaged or dented and thereby prevent the doors from rolling up properly. Damaged panels also become a security risk for your business.
- Misaligned Tracks
Commercial garage doors have rollers that help raise and lower them, and these rollers run on metal tracks. If these tracks get misaligned or damaged in any way, the rollers cannot function properly, which means that the garage doors do not work properly either.

Garage Door Repairs tips, recommendations and frequently asked questions
Why does my garage door opener light bulb keep dying?
First, check for any shaking of the garage door during operation. Usually, excessive vibration can cause the filament in your opener's bulb to prematurely expire.
One garage spring broke. I have 2, should I replace both?
Garage door springs should ALWAYS be replaced as a set. The reason is once one spring breaks, the other one is probably not far behind, especially considering how springs weaken over time. Combining a new spring with an older one will likely cause an imbalance in your garage door's operation. If you own 2 separate garage doors and only one spring has broken, it's strongly recommended to replace the springs on each door if their springs are around the same age. Depending on your door's position, when a spring breaks it can cause serious injury as well as damage your opener.
