Garage door opener repair Princeton, IL 61356
Many garage door companies in 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 we want the most cost-effective solution for our customers. We are trained in diagnosing problems in garage door openers and then telling our customers the options for repairs or replacement.
Most garage door companies won’t do this because the technician may not know how to properly diagnose the opener or because the company he works for knows there is far more profit in replacing rather than fixing. Call (815)593-0596 and tell us the symptoms of the door opener and we will give you our honest opinion on the matter whether you use our company or not.
Garage door spring repair Princeton, IL 61356
Broken garage door springs can be a problem especially if you have your car stuck in the garage. When the overhead door spring breaks it will make a loud noise that sounds like a pop or a gunshot. If you walk into the garage and look directly above the overhaul door in the middle, you will see the torsion springs on the torsion tube. If there is a break in one of the overhaul door springs, then you have a broken spring.
When this happens, sometimes the cables pop off the end cones on the sides of the door. This will look like the cables are broken. The first thing to do when you realize a spring is broken is disengaging your garage door opener from the garage door. Do this only when the garage door is in the down position. Do this by pulling the cord down from the overhead door opener trolley. Then, unplug the opener from the power outlet.
The reason you want to unplug the opener is that someone may hit your garage door wall button accidentally and your opener will try to lift your overhaul door. This is not good because the garage door opener is designed to guide the garage door open and closed, not to do the lifting as well. The springs are responsible for the lifting and balancing of the garage door. Next, call us and schedule an appointment. A professional garage door technician will be able to come and repair your torsion spring.
Warning: The garage door cables on both sides have a lot of tension on them and should not be tampered with if you do not know what you are doing!
New garage doors Princeton, IL 61356
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 10 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 Princeton, IL. Ignoring the problem will cause premature wear and tear.
