The Mechanisms in your Door
Garage doors are extremely heavy and must have a counterbalance that allows them to be lifted and lowered. Part of this mechanism is the springs, and part of it is the opener. Most openers use an overhead drive of some sort, connecting a chain or belt to a trolley and motor, screwing the motor to the trolley, or placing the motor directly inside the trolley. Some use a jackshaft, which is mounted on the sides near the torsion springs instead. Residential garages are likely to use a drive rather than a jackshaft, although modified jackshafts are gaining in popularity outside of commercial spaces. These mechanisms see a lot of use, whether in a home or in a business and need to be replaced before they wear out too badly. If your opener breaks, you need fast, quality service to accurately diagnose the issue and repair the broken piece.
What If They Break?
Worn openers can be anything from inconvenient to dangerous. A broken opener may simply mean that your door doesn't open or close. However, if an opener breaks while you're using it, you risk the door crashing down onto whatever is beneath it. Additionally, a broken opener can cost you in terms of wasted time trying to get in or out of your garage, which is a concern for both homeowners and business owners. Our trained technicians can speedily replace worn or broken parts to get you back up to speed and let you get on with your day.
