What do garage door repair services include?

Garage door repair services include all the needed tasks to get your broken garage door working again. This is regardless of whether it’s the roller shutter or the up-and-over type of garage door. A skilled handyman can repair either type of garage doors and can test the garage door to ensure the repairs are proper and adequate.  

Inspecting the garage door

Your hired garage door repairman can inspect the different moving parts and components of your garage door to find the cause of the problem. They can check the springs, rails, cables and pulleys for damage or wear and tear. They inspect the glass panes on the garage door if any, and check for cracks or breaks. 

Your repairman can check the tension of the springs, damage or obstructions for the garage door sensors, damage or wear on the hinges, rollers and tracks. The repairman also checks the remote door controller and remote keypad for any damage or weak batteries; they likewise verify the garage door opener for damage or insufficient power. 

Fixing the garage door

After troubleshooting the problem, your garage door repairman performs the needed repairs. They can perform repairs such as lubricating the tracks, rails, pulleys and other moving parts. They may remove rusted or worn sections of the tracks or rails and attach new sections or replace the entire rail. Your repairman can check for any bent tracks and worn or damaged cables and rollers. Should there be any glass panes on the door that are missing or cracked, they can replace these as well. Some repairmen can replace the garage door springs if necessary. 

If the garage door opener is not getting enough power, your repairman can do simple wiring work and fix severed wires by splicing them onto the old plug or a new plug if necessary; you may have to supply these and any other replacement parts. If you don’t have these replacement parts ready, some repairmen may offer to buy these for you from the nearest hardware store. 

Testing the garage door

Once your repairman finds the problems and applies the appropriate repairs, they can proceed to test the garage door and do final checks on all the parts and electronic components. They watch for any unusual movements and listen for strange sounds when the garage door is operated. Apart from the mechanical parts, your repairman does final checks on the electronic components like the door sensors, the remote and remote keypad.  

If any problems or unusual movements are detected during testing, your repairman does troubleshooting again. Your repairman applies the appropriate fixes and tests the garage door again; this will be done as many times as needed until the garage door works without fail.

Hi guys, Girlfriend managed to leave handbrake off and the car's taken a trip into the garage door. Door is now bent all of shape. Work that needs to be done includes flattening the sheet metal, bending L-sections back into shape and drilling in new rivets etc. It's an ancient house and it's one of those manual opening doors with wire latches. Not bothered about the paint or aesthetics, just hope it can be repaired rather than replaced. Have banged and kicked it into some semblance of flat, so it can be opened again, but it's not going to fly with the rental agency as is. Whoever takes this would need some tools that would be able to bend the steel (a vice at the very least), or potentially to cut the steel a little where it has been stretched. It's not relevant I don't think, but if needed the dimensions of the door are 730 by 2030. It's tiny. Cheers, Ben.

Arthur was great. Super friendly, clearly proficient in the work, and easily communicable with. Top notch.
