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.
Does my garage door require maintenance?

We ensure the tracks; rollers and hinges are clean and lubricated properly. We make sure all nuts and bolts are tight and clean. We manually run the operator and door through a cycle to make sure it is running quietly and smoothly. Also, We check the door balance at various opening heights. If the garage door passes all these test, congratulations, you do not need a tune-up.
