The most complicated part of your overhead door system is by far the electric opener. This unit consists of many different components, all of which can potentially develop problems. From worn out motor gears to damaged safety sensors, there are a whole host of issues that can cause your opener to malfunction. Our technicians can help you with all of them.
Maintaining Your Opener
The best way to extend your opener's service life is to invest in regular maintenance. This gives our technicians the opportunity to inspect the unit for signs of wear or corrosion. At the same time, we'll carry out safety sensor realignment, to ensure your door will detect and avoid any obstructions. If any parts need replacing, like some electrical wires or the motor gear, for example, our technicians will take care of it; we carry a wide range of replacement parts with us in order to be able to handle these types of problems on the spot.
Installing New Units
A new garage door opener can make all the difference in the world, and our team will make sure your new unit is safely installed. After we've helped you choose a new model that is the perfect fit for your home, we'll secure the opener to the ceiling and attach the rail and trolley to the door bracket. We’ll then carefully test the entire overhead door system and make sure that it's able open and close smoothly and safely.
Which Opener Is Right For Me?
There are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to garage door openers, but there are really only about three main types of drive systems that are commonly used today. Chain drive units are affordable and durable but also very noisy, while belt drive models are incredibly quiet, but also more expensive. The third type is the screw drive system, which requires very little maintenance but isn't entirely silent. In addition to this, many of the top brands we work with also offer high-tech features, such as Chamberlain’s “MyQ” remote control app for your smartphone, and a backup battery system that will allow you to keep using your opener during unexpected power outages.
