Garage Door Repair 3rd Ave

Garage Door Repair 3rd Ave

Project Description

Garage Doors 4 U Longmont had a garage door opener repair project in Longmont CO.  The homeowner called for emergency garage door repair service since their garage door opener stopped working. We responded to their request for garage door repair Longmont quickly as the homeowner was looking for a residential garage door repair company.  We were able to make the repairs quickly so that the homeowner could use their garage again.

Time to Hire a Professional Garage Door Company

A garage door system is complicated and includes many large moving parts. A reliable garage door company has technicians that are trained in garage door repair and garage door installations. There are many different types of issues that can occur with a garage door caused by different parts in the garage door operating mechanism.

Causes of loosened chains 

Once a gear and sprocket start to break, then the chain begins to loosen quickly. Another cause for this issue is when too much tension is put on the chain while it is being installed. Also, weather changes can be an issue since the temperature can be an issue in areas with extreme weather conditions (going from scorching summers to freezing winters).

A professional garage door repair technician can easily replace the components of a garage door, such as the sprocket assembly and gear (which are located within the garage door opener motor cover). Once the new sprocket and gear are changed, resetting the mechanism’s travel limits and force limits will occur. Don’t forget that the parts can be exposed and broken once the cover is removed, so trusting a garage door professional is a wise choice. It is recommended to check the manufacturer’s warranty to confirm you are covered under their warranty for a specified period of time.

Dealing with a broken garage door opener chain

A garage door opener can be driven by a belt, screw, or chain. These are typically very sturdy, and there is seldom a breakage issue during the average lifetime for a garage door opener. Examine  if the garage door chain is broken, hanging loose, or has fallen off its track. Also, a garage door opener can wear quickly if the garage door cables are damaged or are hanging loose. So, it is wise to check both the garage door chain and the garage door cable (if your garage door has one) and relay this information to the garage door repair company.

Another reason why a garage door chain can be loose is when the front sprocket is broken. You can find this part wrapped around by a chain at the end of the opener rail near the garage door opening. Make sure to reach out to an expert residential garage door repair technician to deal with this issue.

So now you know, garage door repairs can vary, and a reliable garage door repair company such as Garage Doors 4 U Longmont can be relied upon to deal with any garage door problems you encounter. Understanding the different types of garage door problems will make it easier for you to communicate these issues with a garage door company.
