How a Garage Door Works
A garage door moves up and down with a spring system while keeping everything under tension. While the springs do all the heavy lifting, this is what makes the garage door feel light. Since all the parts work together, they all play their part in keeping your door running smoothly. If any of the garage door parts fail or are worn, this causes the door to malfunction and brake. Our professional staff of technicians are trained in making your garage door run like new again..
How Garage Door Openers Work
A garage door opener is a motorized apparatus that makes your door go up and down. It is guided by switches on the wall of the garage. It is operated by a remote that makes it incredibly convenient to use your garage door.
The door opener will have a Motorhead attached to the ceiling of the garage. The motor is what drives the belt or chain along the rails, ultimately lifting the door for you. The safety sensors located at the bottom of the tracks are a built-in safety mechanism designed to detect an obstruction. The photo-eye senses if there is an obstruction and stops the door from closing.
What can cause a garage door to fail?
Proper maintenance is essential to making your garage doors operate smoothly. A garage door can last a long time when it is cared for regularly. The door of your garage is likely to be the largest moving part of your home. It consists of many smaller moving parts. Any one of these parts can make the whole system not operate optimally. A broken garage door can be easily accessed and repaired by our expert technicians.
A piece of equipment with so many parts is bound to need maintenance and repair occasionally. The motor of the automatic garage door opener may fail to operate correctly if it detects a problem. Problems including heavy doors, shaky doors, and broken cables can all make the use of the door nearly impossible.
Garage Doors are very dangerous, and only trained professionals should attempt to fix them. Torsion springs are under a tremendous amount of tension and could cause serious injury or death if not correctly handled. You should never make any repairs yourself.
Maintenance can be as easy as basic adjustment or as serious as garage door rollers falling out of the tracks. But not to worry, J&S Overhead Garage Door can handle all of your garage door and opener needs.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why is my garage door opening or closing by itself?
Garage doors rarely open and close by themselves, but when they do, it can be aggravating. Generally, this is due to either outdated technology or radio signal interference. With Norfolk, VA being a hot spot for military activity, sometimes with ships coming in and out of port, signals can be jammed, hence causing the garage door to act crazy. There are remedies we can use to fix this such as alternate garage door opener styles using a different radio signal.
2. How do I know if there’s a broken spring in my garage door?
You may have a broken spring if your garage door will not open or close. If you hear a loud “POP” noise, it may be because the garage door spring has just broken. We stock all sizes of garage door springs, including extension springs, so all repairs can be made quickly on the spot. Ask about our high-cycle garage door springs with our 18-year warranty!
3. Can a garage door keypad be fixed?
Garage door keypads are more often than not are replaced if they were to malfunction but sometimes it’s just a matter of changing the battery and reprogramming the operator unit.
4. How long is my garage door opener supposed to last?
J & S Overhead Garage Door Services offers a full menu of services for your garage door and that includes garage door openers. Since not all garage door openers are the same, depending on the quality of the unit, this will generally indicate how long it should last. Openers with a warranty of only 1 year may only last that long. We suggest sticking with openers with warranties of at least five years, giving you some longevity. Many older models lasted up to 20 years because the parts were easily repaired, and the uber technology had not yet been built in.
