Belle Terre Garage Door Repairs

Your Belle Terre garage is an asset to you and your family. It stores valuables, and is even in many cases, the main entrance to a home. Addressing malfunctions and damage that your garage door may have is extremely important. Quick repairs help prolong the function and longevity of your door. Ignoring even the smallest of issues can result in very costly service or even potential replacement of your garage door. Annual tune-ups done by a professional are always encouraged. There are a few things that you could do yourself though that can keep your door running smoothly and looking fresh.

Garage Door Maintenance Tips

  • Clean it
    Using an all purpose cleaner to wipe down your garage door and its parts not only keeps it clean, but helps you to notice cracks, dents, rust, breaks, warping, chips, tears and other damage. The sooner damaged parts are replaced or repaired, the better. Things that seem small and superficial at first can end up being huge burdens in the future if they are not properly addressed.
  • Lubricate
    The moving parts of your garage door should always be lubricated. Every couple of months or so, you should use garage door grease, a white lithium spray, or WD-40 on the springs, roller brackets, tracks, trolleys, pulleys, etc. This will keep your door quieter and ensure that it runs smoothly.
  • Stay Aware
    After a while of using your Belle Terre garage door, you will become familiar with its function. Be sure to watch and listen. If you notice your door is making odd noises or is jolting/jamming, calling the professionals sooner than later can prevent further damage.
  • Test What You Can
    Open your garage and block your door with an object, then push the button to close it. The object should activate your photo-eye sensors and cause your garage door to reverse. If the door doesn’t reverse, make sure the eyes of your sensors are clean and properly adjusted. Open your garage door half way and see if it stays. If it slams shut too quickly or has trouble opening at all, you may have damaged springs.
  • Inspect
    Check the weather stripping at the bottom of your door. Wear and tear happens. Replacing a damaged weather stripping will help keep elements, pests, and dirt out of your home. You can purchase them at your local hardware store.
  • Tighten
    Use a socket wrench to tighten any loose bolts, screws, and roller brackets. This will keep your door from literally falling apart.
  • Keep it Clear
    Keep debris and dirt off of your garage door's tracks and away from its reverse sensors. Obstructions can cause a door to jam or come off its tracks.
  • Examine
    check tension cables for damage, but never attempt to fix them without proper knowledge or training. The force behind those cables can severely injure or possibly kill you if not handled correctly.

    Comments about our Garage Door Repair service:
    They were easy to deal with, professional and efficient. I needed one spring replaced which they were willing to do but recommended that they replace the springs in pairs. They were more than willing to go with whatever my decision was. No pressure. They give a One year warranty on their work. They were fast with minimal noise as I had a sleeping child and that was important to me. I highly recommend them.

    Their response was very quick and Dennis came right away. He did everything he said and the garage openers (2) are working fine, within 45 minutes. I would recommend them to others as dependable and knowledgeable, and readily available.
