Garage Door Repair FAQs

Q: Part of my garage door has been damaged. Can I get the section repaired, or does the entire garage door need to be replaced?
A: Depending on the type of damage, you may be able to get a section of your garage door repaired; however, this is not always the case.

Q: My garage door is malfunctioning, but it seems like an easy fix. Can I do it myself?
A: No matter how easy of a fix it may seem, repairing a garage door yourself is not recommended. There are intricate parts that go overlooked, and this could cause potentially severe harm. Contact a qualified technician for garage door repair.

Q: What can I do to maintain my garage door myself and minimize damage potential?
A: Keeping hinges, bearings and rollers lubricated, as well as cleaning tracks, can go very far in helping your garage door to operate at optimal performance.

Q: What are common problems that require garage door repair?
A: No matter how well you maintain your garage door, broken springs are unavoidable. They do most of the work, and eventually the wear and tear they experience will cause them to give out. This is an issue you will want to let a professional handle.

Warped panels are also an issue, depending on your location, as extreme weather conditions can cause problems particularly for wood garage doors.
