All sorts of things can cause your garage door opener to malfunction, from broken gears to problems with the circuit board. Whatever the case may be, our technicians know exactly how to handle any issue quickly and safely. If you're looking to upgrade to a new unit, we're more than equipped to help you with that as well.
Common Problems You May Face
Your opener can experience both mechanical and electrical problems. Its motor gear can wear out and render it powerless, or the trolley (which connects the opener to the door) can break, and thus leave this 'automatic arm' without a hand to push or pull your door with. These are just two examples of mechanical issues. Your opener could also experience electrical glitches which can cause it to start 'misbehaving'. Problems with the circuit board or the safety sensors have been known to lead to all sorts of erratic problems that seem almost like a ghost suddenly decided to possess your garage door. Whatever the issue is, our technicians will be able to fix it. We have the technical skill and the experience needed to repair or replace any of the unit's different components, so you can rest assured your opener is in good hands when you turn to us.
Finding The Right Type For You
There are three main types of drive systems that an automatic opener can use. The first is the chain drive, which is very strong and more affordable than the other types. Unfortunately, it requires more frequent maintenance, and can be very loud. A belt drive opener doesn't have those disadvantages, as it operates very silently. However, it is also more expensive. The third type is a screw drive opener, which uses a threaded rod to move the door. It requires very little maintenance, and is also very fast, but it isn't silent by any stretch, and can be affected by drastic temperature shifts.
