Problems that can be fixed by homeowners include:

Saggy Garage Door

If you notice that your garage door is getting more difficult to open, then you may want to check if it’s beginning to sag. You can correct this problem by squaring up the tension rods on the backside of the door. They are situated diagonally from top to bottom corners. Tighten them a little at a time to allow for adjustment. If your overhead door does not have them, then you can purchase them at a home improvement store.

Door Frozen in Place

When cold weather hits, your door opener mechanism can freeze up and end up losing power. You can avoid this by checking and adjusting your settings so that your door will work seamlessly.

Garage Door Lock

Most homeowners have a greater sense of security if they know their garage door lock is working properly. Typically, doors have two bars that move out from the center of the door into slots along the side. If these are not working, then they may have shifted over time and use.

To realign your door’s bars, you may need to unscrew the brackets on the door edges so they are loosened up. Then you can reposition them so they will work smoothly and lock the bars into the slots on the sides. Further, a little lubricating will make things lock and unlock more smoothly too.

Emergency Cord for Power Loss

If you lose power and you need to get out of your garage, then you can use your emergency cord. Most doors have a red cord that you can pull so that your door will open manually and not need power. No need to call anyone and you can be out with a quick pull on the cord.

When to Call a Professional

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
