Garage door opener repair in Ottawa, IL 61350

Many garage door companies in Ottawa, IL 61350 Illinois are quick to tell you that you need to replace your garage door opener when in truth a repair would solve the problem and be much more cost-effective.

At HBA Garage Door Sales & Service LLC we want the most cost-effective solution for our customers. The technicians we use are trained in diagnosing problems in the specific opener and then telling our customers the options for repair or replacement.

New garage doors in Ottawa, IL 61350

Garage doors are designed to last for many years with only basic maintenance but eventually, you’ll need to replace your overhaul door. Keeping some simple points in mind can help you get the best bang for your buck out of your new garage door.

Do I need to replace both springs if one breaks?

It is recommended to replace both springs. Oftentimes both springs are installed at the same times, this means if one breaks the other will break soon. Since the whole garage system needs to be removed to replace one broken spring it is easier to replace the other as well. This saves you the cost of fixing the other one later. With normal use the springs last approximately 6-12 years. If you use the door excessively it will decrease the lifespan of the springs.

My garage doesn’t go up and down smoothly should I be worried?

When the garage has problems with opening and closing you have an unsafe situation. Even older doors should work smoothly, doesn’t matter if you have a manually operated or electric garage door. If you can’t figure out the problem it’s recommended to call us so we can help you repair garage door in Ottawa, IL 61350. Ignoring the problem will cause premature wear and tear.

Make sure your house door is locked before you leave. If your garage door opener is designed for it, you may be able to have the garage door opener automatically lock the door once it closes, preventing it from being moved until you return.

Garage doors with windows may look nice but they’re an easy way for anyone to check if your car is in the garage. Frost the windows or cover them up to prevent anyone from seeing through them from outside.
