Garage Door Repair

If you have a garage as part of your property then you are doubtless concerned about the possibility that your garage door will break or malfunction at some point. If you want to avoid this then here are a few potential causes of garage door breakage which should hopefully help you avoid such problems in the future.

Every garage door is attached to the frame with the help of a number of springs. However, these springs can become worn after an extended period of use. Some things this can result in include the springs rusting or breaking which will result in the door becoming inoperable as it will no longer be possible to open or close a door with broken or excessively rusted springs. If yo notice your garage door jerks on the way down, you may need a new garage door spring installed.

Most modern garage doors are designed to be able to sense if something is blocking the doorway and will stop functioning as a result. This helps with preventing damage to important items such as bicycles, lawn mowers and cars, for example. So if your garage door isn't working then it may be worth it to check if something is blocking the door's path of descent.

The installation of a garage door can seem like a pretty difficult task when presented with doing it yourself. That's why the experts at Overhead Door Company of Norfolk provide you with a garage door installation crew that will do the job for you. This will provide you with peace of mind knowing the job was done professionally, and that all the correct steps were taken.

Step 1:
The first step is to remove any previous door that was in place ahead of time. We do this very carefully and professionally to remove any threat the heavy doors might present.

Step 2:
Once the previous door is out of the way, we will measure the space out and make sure that every piece is just right for the job. They wouldn't want there to be a wrong size. Once everything is measured we will start by putting on the bottom slat of the door and set up the vertical tracks.

Step 3:
Once that is complete we will put the rest of the door panels together, placing them over top of each other and securing them. This varies on how tall your door will be. Once that is done we will attach the rollers to the door and the track, securing them to make sure they don't come off.

Step 4:
The last part of the door that needs to be worried about is the vertical tracks for the door to lift and the springs for the door. Once everything is secured the installers will attach the vertical tracks to the ceiling and attach the springs to the door. Once all that is done then your should be ready, unless you bought a door opener which the installers would happily hook up for you.

Broken Garage Door Springs Virginia Beach VA

Garage door springs are an important part of your garage door system.  Over time, these springs wear out and need to be repaired or replaced. Proper maintenance will keep your garage door working properly and avoid costly repairs. How do you know if you have problems with garage door springs? When operating your garage door, make sure both sides move up and down at the same time.  If one side is moving faster or slower than the other, you may need to replace your garage door springs.   

Another sign involves how smooth your garage door moves when going up or down.  Does the garage door stop or jerk at a certain point when raising or lowering? Or does it move up and down unevenly? If you see these problems, you may have broken springs.
