We repair and install all types of garage door openers in the market, may it be screw drive openers, belt drive, or chain drive type.

Parts of a garage door opener system
Most garage doors have either torsion or extension spring systems. However, many tend to prefer torsion springs due to their superior quality and long-term performance. Torsion springs are large springs mounted at the top of the garage door, and they open and close the door in a controlled motion. Meanwhile, extension springs can be found on either side of a garage door.
The motor unit is one of the most complex parts of the garage door system, and it does a lot of heavy lifting in its operation. The motor unit receives the signal to open or close the garage door, raises or lowers the door, and interacts with the sensors to confirm that it is safe to operate. The motor has settings that let you change the force and distance in which your garage door opens.
The safety sensors ensure that nothing is blocking your garage door from closing, and this can be important to prevent anything from being trapped under the door. The sensors are mounted on either side of the garage door, just above ground level, and they are made up of two parts. One sends out a signal, and the other receives it.
Common signs that your garage door opener needs repair
Sounds and vibrations
Over time, the motor in your garage door opener will struggle to open the garage door as it usually would. When you hear sounds or see it vibrating, that can mean that the mechanisms in your garage door opener could cause serious issues. If you have a modern garage door opener that has become noticeably noisier, it can be a sign of a problem.
Opening and reversing
If your garage door opens and then reverses, it may suggest a problem with the close limit switch. That could mean that the door opener motor might need to be replaced. If your garage door does not completely open, you might have a switch problem that needs to be inspected or repaired by a technician near you.
Slacking in movement
If your door takes any longer to rise and close than it did at first, it may be an indication that your opener is having trouble raising the door’s weight and might need to be replaced. Likewise, there may be a problem with the garage door springs, and both may need to be inspected.
The motor is old
While you might still be satisfied with your current garage door opener, upgrading it is often worth it in the long run. Upgrading it can provide better security for you and your house. Newer garage door openers also offer more features, such as keypads and remote operation for your use.
