Leave Your Garage Door Repairs To Experts

Garage doors tend to be one of those things you only miss when they stop working. This is because they are highly engineered pieces of machinery, which give flawless service day in day out.

Like every other type of other machinery, however, garage doors suffer wear and tear. And accidents do happen.

After years in the business, we know that DIY garage door repairs often end badly. When it comes to sorting out garage door issues, all our experience, combined with having the correct spare parts and the right tools in-hand, certainly makes our job easier and more efficient.

Warning Signs

Problems with automated garage doors often make themselves known in little ways. Perhaps you might be noticing that yours sticks a bit, near the top of its closing mechanism.

Or you might hear a noise that sounds less than healthy.

Other than that, your door is working. But these are warning signs. If left untreated, sooner or later your door will experience real problems.

Your garage door relies on a number of systems to work smoothly. It will have electronic sensors and controls. And it will have moving parts, including cables and springs. With regular use, any cable can become worn, and springs eventually weaken.

In most cases, garage doors will be subject to the weather. On the Gold Coast, this is a serious factor.

While garage door products are made to last, delicate internal components are the first to suffer. These will also be the least obvious elements of your door and the hardest to fix. Electronic motors too can suffer from the elements.

Access to sensitive equipment within protective housings is often difficult and, once again, the correct spare parts are usually needed.

Expert Services

With more than 25 years of experience with garage door repairs, we know all the tell-tale signs.

Of course, some of these will be obvious to all, like a dislodged cable or broken spring. But replacing these items is a job for the experts, with suitable equipment and safety measures.

Garage doors are heavy and danger is definitely involved in their handling.

Technology brings all manner of convenience to modern garage doors. And that means a high level of expertise is needed when malfunctions arise.

Apart from fixing problems when they arise, the best way to keep your doors working is to maintain them.

All doors should be serviced at least once a year. This will avoid problems arising and save money in the long term. Our expert, locally-based fitters can look after your automatic garage doors all year round, replacing components appropriately, to make sure you get the expected satisfactory service from your doors.
