Garage Door Repairs
Yes, our vans are absolutely equipped with almost any garage door part which include a brand new opener.

Garage door opener is harder to identify as oppose to visible snapped cables
or broken springs. A specialist can determine if the opener is to old to
function or just needs adjustments.
Most repairs can be finished within one hour.
A new garage door opener takes approximately two hours. Broken Spring replacement take approximately one hour.
Yes, we offer emergency repairs, we’re available 7 days a week and will have someone there in a jiffy regardless of the time of day or weather conditions.
A battery backup unit connected to your garage door opener functions normally in a power outage. But if it does not, you can open the door manually. You can disconnect the door from the opener with the emergency release handle (ERH). You will then be able to open and close your door manually. You find the handle at the end of a red rope hanging from the GDO rail near the top of the door.
Note: If you have a residential jackshaft opener, you will find the emergency release handle at the bottom of the motor unit.
NOTE OF WARNING: To prevent DEATH or SERIOUS INJURY from a falling garage door, you can use the emergency release handle to disengage the trolley. But this can only be done when the doors are closed.
We recommend checking the door springs or an unbalanced door regularly to prevent it from falling unexpectedly. We do not recommend using the emergency release lever handle if the doorway is not clear of obstruction.
Never use that handle to pull your door open/close, as the rope knot can become untied, and the door can fall.
Disconnecting a Square Rail
If the GDO has a square rail, you can pull down the emergency release handles to let the trolley release arm snap into a vertical position. This locks out the trolley allowing the door to raise and lower manually as needed.
Disconnecting a T-Rail
Pull the red rope down, and for locking the trolley, pull it straight down and pull it towards the opener. You can then raise/lower the door manually.
Disconnecting a Residential Jackshaft Opener
You first need to disengage the door lock, and it needs to be fully closed. Then pull the emergency release handle to hear a click to lift the door manually.
Reconnecting The Door To The Opener
- Square Rail: Pull the ERH back to the opener, so the trolley release arm stands horizontal. It will reconnect when used again manually or using the door activator.
- T-Rail: All you need to do is pull the handle down, and the trolley reconnects when the doors are activated the next time.
- Residential Jackshaft Opener: Pull the ERH down for a second time to hear the click sound. You will then reconnect it when using it the next time.
Common Garage Door Problems
A common reason is a broken spring, as the torsion system sits above the door while the extension spring is on the sides. These springs can become worn out and dangerous, and it is best to consult a garage door supplier to fix them.
It can be a broken spring if the door comes crashing down. These springs become a danger to you and your garage structure when loaded or damaged. The best advice is to have it checked out by an expert garage door technician.
The smoke is a sign of a broken or blown capacitor. The capacitor is fast to replace if you know the electronics. But if you do not have the expertise, it can worsen the problem when trying to do it yourself. We recommend you contact a garage door opener expert today to fix it.
We recommend you check your garage door opener manual to ensure it is connected to the operating arm. If you find everything is connected, it can result from a broken or worn-out motor drive gear. Our best advice if this is the case is to contact a professional garage door company to help.
The best advice we can give is to a faulty safety sensor known as the photo eyes. You find them at the bottom of both sides of the door. But first, we recommend you check to see if nothing is blocking the sensors, like a broom, shoe, box, etc.
The springs run on a cycle, and when one goes, the other one will also break. So, to save you time and money, we recommend replacing both springs at the same time.
