What Garage Door Repairs Do Professional Technicians Undertake?

You might not realise it, but many traditional locksmiths offer expert garage installation and repair services alongside their usual security services, and below are just some of the many ways that they can help you repair your garage door:

Garage door replacement

While not classed as a repair, most professional locksmiths and garage door contractors will replace your existing garage door, and remove and haul away the old one, too. They will also replace parts.

Repair or service of a garage door opener

Whatever the brand, a good garage door contractor will repair or service your garage door opener.

Torsion Spring or cable replacement

Responsible for generating energy, the garage doors torsion spring winds itself around a shaft instead of stretching, to lift the garage door up. Repairing or replacing a torsion spring can be incredibly dangerous, and should always be carried out by a professional garage door technician.

The cable connects the spring to the garage door, and because these and the spring are made of steel, they can rust or degrade over time. A technician will replace them as necessary.

Off-track garage door repair

If the rollers have come off their guide tracks, then a professional technician or qualified locksmith will help to repair them to prevent the risk of the door collapsing and causing injury or structural damage.

Garage door panel replacement

If it’s only one panel of your garage door that is damaged, a technician can just replace that one panel instead of the entire door, which can save you money.

Safety inspections and maintenance:

A qualified technician can carry out a comprehensive check of your garage door, and evaluate its condition, make minor repairs and adjustments, and lubricate it if necessary. If you arrange for a technician to assess your garage door as part of a regular maintenance service, you can extend its life and help avoid costly repairs in the future.

Resetting wireless keypads:

Even if your battery-operated remote control for your wireless keypad needs to be repaired, serviced or programmed, a garage door technician can do this for you, along with any additional remote controls that match your existing garage door opener.

As you can see from the list, there isn’t much that a garage door technician can’t do when it comes to repairing or replacing your garage door, and if you treat them as the experts they so often are, then you can seek their advice for any problems related to your garage door, or the overall security of your home.
