The chances are that you don’t think about your garage door openers often. When they do catch your attention, it’s because they’re not working. You’re not alone. Homeowners across Nashville, TN, routinely deal with garage doors that partially open or don’t open at all.
At Nashville Door Services, we find out why garage door openers don’t work and how to fix them. One of the most common issues is when someone accidentally unplugs the motor unit. Some other potential problems include:
- Poor signal connection
- Faulty gears
- Safety photo-eye failure
- Frequency interference
- Damaged track rollers
- Improper garage door installation
- Broken garage door spring
Our technicians can solve all these issues, and more—after we inspect the premise, find the source of the problem, and determine the optimal solution. Our technicians receive training in all aspects of garage door service, so they understand how to handle structural and cosmetic damage.
The specific garage door service depends on the underlying problem. Blocked sensors take seconds to fix, while a broken garage door spring requires more time and energy. Whether your garage door repair is big or small, you’ll receive the same above-and-beyond service from our technicians.
Our technicians in Nashville, TN, start by checking different components. Pulling the emergency release cord and lifting the door will determine how smoothly it opens and closes. If the door stalls, there’s likely an issue with the springs or track rollers.
Let’s say that the door doesn’t want to budge an inch. Instead of getting a new garage door, our technicians can spray lubricant on the rails to minimize friction. We might apply lithium grease in the winter because the material doesn’t harden in low temperatures. The quick fix lets the rollers move smoothly on the track again.
If your garage doors don’t open completely, you may have a problem with the chain tension. Extra slack can force the chain to skip off the sprocket and cause the door to fall. Tightening it a quarter of an inch can restore the proper balance and tension.
Many other potential reasons exist for garage door repair. The various causes inspired us to offer a multi-point inspection service, where our technicians will determine what works and what doesn’t with your garage door openers. Once they finish looking at your garage doors, they’ll provide you with a detailed analysis and the potential repair costs.
Replacement vs. Repair
On average, garage door openers last 10 to 15 years. You can prolong your model’s longevity with routine maintenance. Occasional service, such as fresh lube or a new sensor, can delay the time between replacements.
Repairs cost less than a garage door installation but can add up quickly toward the end of the door opener’s life. Fixing multiple issues may cost you more than a new model. If you need increased security or hear unusual noises, you should consider a replacement.
New garage door openers have smart and convenient features that make your home more secure. Wireless connectivity lets you open and close your garage from anywhere in Nashville, TN, while rotating codes provide additional peace of mind. Some models have display screens that allow you to monitor your garage, set rules for automatic openings, and generate a live video stream.
