A garage door is a large door on a garage that opens either manually or by an electric motor (a garage door opener). Garage doors are frequently large enough to accommodate automobiles and other vehicles. Small garage doors may be made in a single panel that tilts up and back across the garage ceiling. Larger doors are usually made in several jointed panels that roll up on tracks across the garage ceiling, or into a roll above the doorway. The operating mechanism is spring-loaded or counterbalanced to offset the weight of the door and reduce human or motor effort required to operate the door. Less commonly, some garage doors slide or swing horizontally. Doors are made of wood, metal, or fiberglass, and may be insulated to prevent heat loss. Warehouses, bus garages and locomotive sheds have larger versions.
When your garage door starts acting up, more often than not it is telling you it's time to do a bit of maintenance. So, before hitting the panic button, try these simple repairs. First, examine the rollers and tracks. If you can't remember the last time you cleaned them (and they look the part!), give them a good brushing and then add some lubricant. Next, perform these simple garage door maintenance tasks.

Roller doors ("Sheet Doors"-USA) are usually constructed of corrugated steel. They evolved from cover window and door coverings.[4] Other materials can be used (e.g.; transparent corrugated fibreglass) where strong impact resistance is not required. Corrugations give the door strength against impacts. A typical single car garage roller door has a preloaded spring inside the rolling mechanism. The spring reduces the effort required to open the door. Larger roller doors in commercial premises are not sprung (except USA) and use a manual pulley and chain system or a geared motor to raise and lower (roll up and roll down) the door. Roller doors cannot be effectively insulated.
Great service all around! Friday night issue with other service company… Aaron’s didn’t turn me down in resolving the fact that I had NO use of my door until Monday. They sent a very well experienced technician on Saturday morning. He was prompt, explained everything very well, advised on next service needs (without being sales-y) and did an awesome job! Thanks again!!!
Garage door springs come in two styles: torsion (see above), which mounts on the header above the door, and extension (Photo 1), which floats above the upper roller track. In the past, extension springs were safer to install but didn’t have containment cables running through the center of the spring. Without cable, these springs become dangerous, heavy whips when they break. They also tend to be noisier than torsion springs, and we recommend you use them only if you don’t have the 12 in. of headroom above the door that a torsion spring requires.

The manager is very thorough in providing all the options with detail so that i can make a sound decision. He recommended the option he believe is the best but never pressure me into signing up for that. Just one small negative - Time management. I was booked on a 12-2pm window because of my meeting but got a call at 10:50am that the rep is on the way. I have to rush out of the meeting and drive home.
I had an unusual problem with my door opener that totally stumped 2 previous companies. They would sell me parts that did not fix the problem. Then I tried A1 Door Garage Service. A1 was also initially stumped, but kept exploring solutions. Even refunding my cost of parts I bought that did not resolve the issue. How's THAT for great service. After about 5 visits from A1 the problem is fixed. I am very pleased. JD from A1 stuck with it and did not give up until I was satisfied with the repair, and adjusted my final bill to reflect a refund of parts I purchased that did not fix the problem.

I had Russ out to my house on July 16th for a simple motor replacement. While he was inspecting my door, he found several significant cracks. He took the time to point them out to my husband and advised that we really need a new door along with the motor. The following day Craig came out to do an estimate. He was so polite and professional, very no nonsense, and didn't try to sell us anything we don't need. He came back again on the 19th and took measurements, we signed a contract, and are scheduled to get our new door and motor on the 25th. We have had issues with our door not opening or closing all the way for the last 4 years during the summer heat. It will be so nice to have peace of mind that our garage door and the motor will last a very long time. I truly appreciate the honesty and integrity of your technicians! Thank you!

Extension spring systems should always be restrained by a safety cable that runs through the middle of the spring, tying off to a solid point at the rear and front of the horizontal door track. Extension springs represent a hazard to bystanders when a spring, pulley, or cable breaks under tension. Metal parts from extension spring systems can suddenly be launched.

We worked with Matt to replace our garage door openers. He did an excellent job and worked in cold weather to finish the job. He answered all our questions throughout (before, during, and after) and explained the entire process, features, and additional accessories for the opener. Matt provided exceptional customer service, he was professional, and understanding of our needs. Matt and Anna helped us schedule the appointment at our earliest availability and offered a great deal. We received another offer which was couple hundred dollars lower but we went with Precision Door for their customer service and transparency into solution for us to meet our needs. I highly recommend Precision Door and will do business with them for our future needs.
Carriage: These doors mimic the look of doors found on old carriage houses in the days of horses and buggies. Because of their rustic look, they are often favored in the West and Southwest of the United States. The doors swing open like oversized French doors and hang from jambs on hinges. With their unique look, they create an area of visual interest for your home and are quite energy efficient. The downside is they require a considerable amount of clearance to work properly. Because most carriage garage doors are largely composed of wood, you may need to replace deteriorating or rotting door materials. The average cost for carriage garage door repairs is $133.
With hundreds of moving parts that are all required to work together, it's no surprise that garage doors may need occasional repair and maintenance.

Whether it's a specific repair of your garage door opener, a broken spring that needs to be replaced, or a bent or rusted track, The Home Depot's local, licensed service providers can get the job done quickly and efficiently.
I am writing this review on 9/6/2018. We spent over $1000.00 on our garage door to have basically all new parts but that is not the reason for this review. After all of the work the door still closed rather hard, I called on Sunday 9/2/2018 and asked if someone could come by and check to see if it can be adjusted so it does not close so hard. I asked if there would be a charge and was told no. Today a tech named Adam came and my wife told me he was the most rude arrogant and condescending individual that has ever come to our home, My wife was so upset they way he talked down to her. You may want to call so she can give you the whole story. Our phone num
Garage door sensors 1 are safety devices that prevent the garage door from closing on people, cars, pets, or anything that may get in its way. Garage door sensors 1 are located at the side of the door opening and produce a beam of infrared light. If the beam that runs from one side to the other is interrupted, the door will automatically reverse before hitting the object. Garage door sensors 1 can be purchased separately and average in price from $50-$100.

After you’ve ordered your new garage door, we’ll perform a site inspection to confirm your door size. We’ll contact you to schedule the installation, and our professional installers will do the rest.

Additional fees for haul away may apply in some markets. We are happy to provide answers to questions you may have at the time of your garage door and opener installation.

If the door goes up but goes down only when you hold down the wall switch, check to see that the safety sensors are in alignment. The small light on each sensor should be lit up when nothing is between them. Door sensors do go bad, so if no light is showing at all, you may need to replace them. You can save yourself some time by using the existing wires. Also, direct sunlight shining on sensor eyes can make them misbehave.

Many garage door openers can be purchased with lighting features. The lighting features can be for security reasons or simply for light in the garage. The light is mounted right on the motor housing and will turn on when you use the opener. The light will stay on for approximately 15 to 30 seconds after the garage door is closed, but can also be turned on using a remote control or a wall-mounted switch. If your garage door opener does not come with lighting features, you can have them installed for roughly $50-$100. If you need to replace the light in the lighting fixture, a light bulb will cost $10-$15. You may need to hire an electrician for installation if the wiring is not in place. The cost to hire an electrician is $65-$85 per hour, and this process will only take an hour.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your knowledge. I just replaced our shower cartridge and our leak is FIXED!!!!!!! Your instructional was clear and concise. I did purchase 2 cartridges first, because I did not know the type it was and could not pull it out without the plastic cover it comes with. Fortunately, it was one of the two. By the way I'm a 63 year old woman. If I can do it, anyone with internet and a little patience and an hour can do it.....

Remember, not all garage door springs are alike. They are not one size fits all. If yours breaks, make a note of the brand and color code on the spring you need to replace. We'll get you the garage door opener parts you need, from seal kits to torsion and extension spring kits. Save money by replacing garage door hardware instead of replacing the whole unit.
