There are many lubricants out there but many garage door experts suggest using WD-40 (or similar light weight oil) twice a year to keep garage doors in working shape. All the moving parts of the door should be lubricated, including the hinges, the springs and the rollers. A bead of oil across the top of the springs will give a nice coating, and spraying the rollers is most effective. Also, it’s a good idea to check your garage door hardware for loose screws, nuts and bolts as you lubricate. 

Called on a Sunday just to get your hours and the phone was answered....took our information, found a convenient time slot, sent a confirmation email with techs name and photo...this part could not be better. Barry C. showed up, explained everything (problem, solutions, time to repair, etc.), provided options and costs for each option and saw my level of interest so allowed me to see how the repairs were completed. He mentioned it would take about 30 minutes to complete the job. I decided to finish trimming two shrubs, because there is no way that job could be finished in 30 minutes. Well, I came back and he was down, WOW. He explained exactly what he did, which was exactly what he thought he would need to do. Barry C. was very polite, knowledgeable and efficient. This part could not have been better. Overall, the experience was perfect. It costed more than I expected, but the warranty, technician skills and quality of the product; well worth money.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

Overhead Door® openers​ and garage doors are built with longevity in-mind. By performing a few routine tasks, you can help ensure your garage door system stays safe and stands the test of time. One important part of garage door system routine maintenance is to make sure the photo-eyes have not gone out of alignment. The photo-eyes are the infrared sensors which monitor whether the space at the bottom of your garage door is clear. When these sensors are not lined up properly they will keep your door from closing. Make sure to occasionally check your photo-eyes’ alignment to ensure they are correctly detecting obstructions to keep your garage door safe and operating properly.

Because it was a Saturday and I knew the garage door company I usually use wasn't open week-ends. I decided to look on the internet for week-end workers. The first site that came up was Precision Overhead Garage. Their website said if you call before noon, you can get an appointment that day. Even though it was 1pm, I decided to call anyway. After explaining that I couldn't close or open my garage door, they told me they would go ahead and schedule a time that day...even though it was after their same-day service cut off time of noon. They told me the technician would arrive between 3pm-5pm and he would call before coming (that was nice because I was able to run errands locally and not have to wait at home for those 2 hours). I also have to mention that although the company used an answering service to take the call and schedule the appointment, the gentleman that helped me was also very professional and courteous. Derrick, the technician that was assigned to the repair, called to tell me he was on his way. It was also within the arrival timeframe the company had promised. When he got to my house, he was polite and professional. He assessed the problem and made sure that I was clear about the cost of the repair and the cost of the service call. I agreed and he immediately went to work. He never tried to sell me any other services or parts or repairs that weren't needed. He was finished within 45 minutes and the door worked perfectly. I was able to pay with a credit card even without them being able to verify the information because it was a week-end. I was very impressed that they did that, especially because I was a new customer and had no history with them. Obviously, by my 5-star rating, I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a professional garage door company. Thank you to Derrick and Precision Overhead Garage Door Service!!

So you've changed the batteries. You've reprogrammed the remote and the mountain that is your garage door still will not be moved. It's quite possible that your opener's motor may need replacing. Cost for replacing these motors runs around $100 and can be purchased at most hardware stores. If you don't have time right now to fix it, but you still need to open that door, there's a red cord that hangs down from the motor which will temporarily disconnect your door from its power, enabling you to open the door manually.

“Every spring on every garage door will break,” says Jim Rice, owner of Broad Ripple Overhead Doors & Openers in Indianapolis. “After so many thousand times up and down, it gets metal fatigue and snaps. At least once a year, you should disconnect the garage door springs and lift the door up manually to see how well it’s balanced. Unless you hear metal screeching or something breaks, you don’t need us.”
Wood - Wood garage doors are sturdy and quite beautiful. However, if you live in a humid climate, your doors will be prone to rotting and splitting. If your wood is painted, you must also factor in the costs of painting as part of your regular maintenance routine. The cost of repairing the wood varies depending on the type. However, average cost to repair a wood panel is $190 to $215.

Remember, not all garage door springs are alike. They are not one size fits all. If yours breaks, make a note of the brand and color code on the spring you need to replace. We'll get you the garage door opener parts you need, from seal kits to torsion and extension spring kits. Save money by replacing garage door hardware instead of replacing the whole unit.

Squealing, screeching, or grinding noises from your garage door are usually indicative of a lack of lubricant or an accumulation of dirt or debris in the tracks. When removing debris, do not use harsh chemicals to clean the tracks. Once the track is clean, coat it with lubricant designed especially for garage doors, if possible. If you do not have access to this special type of lubricant, you can use WD-40 on the tracks and hardware.
I'm not a professional, but I watched as my garage doors were serviced last year. The tech used a spray lubricant (I had bought a different brand in the garage door section of a home improvement store). He sprayed the inside of the entire track, top and bottom, the rollers that ride along the track, and all hinges on the door. He sprayed each hinge twice -- once on each side. The techs were more generous with the lubricant than I was when I'd done it before, so don't be afraid to give it a good squirt. 

Had a quick response to my call. thought I might have to wait a couple of days to coordinate their schedule and mine. To my surprise I received service in one and one half hours. Not only that but there was no sales call, technician Mike was fully prepared to give me a quote and complete the work as his vehicle carried everything needed. He very efficiently completed the work and cleaned up after I selected from the options. He replaced the springs all rollers and made needed adjustments expeditiously. I would recommend this firm to anyone needing garage door repairs.read more
Carriage: These doors mimic the look of doors found on old carriage houses in the days of horses and buggies. Because of their rustic look, they are often favored in the West and Southwest of the United States. The doors swing open like oversized French doors and hang from jambs on hinges. With their unique look, they create an area of visual interest for your home and are quite energy efficient. The downside is they require a considerable amount of clearance to work properly. Because most carriage garage doors are largely composed of wood, you may need to replace deteriorating or rotting door materials. The average cost for carriage garage door repairs is $133.

Using your drill, add tension to the torsion spring. This system uses a single spring for a double door, but many manufacturers use two springs for a double door. The painted line on the spring acts as a gauge for the number of turns you put on the spring. To keep the bar from turning while you’re adding tension, attach a locking pliers to the bar on both ends of the spring. Apply lubricant for garage doors to the spring.
Because your garage door can be customized, pricing varies. Our Clopay configurator will help you review pricing as you begin your project. You’ll start with your door size and whether you need a single or double car door. Next, you can choose the collection of door, which gives you options of various materials and styles.

Lastly, you will be able to visualize the design and see an end price. Other optional add-ons include windows, decorative hardware, smart features and the r-value. However, you do not have to use the configurator. We also install standard garage doors that have not been customized so you know the product price early on in the process.

Your garage door opener: You obviously have one to which you are adding this system. Do your homework and make sure it’s compatible before you buy. If you’re not positive, call or email them with your make and model numbers in hand. Mine is a Craftsman (Chamberlain) made in 1999 with the door sensors so I was good to go. NOTE: Garage door openers have a limit to the number of remotes they can support. My Craftsman supports 4 remotes. With two HomeLink-connected cars, the remote door opener, and the smart hub I am now at the max allowed by my opener. As a result, I had to decommission my "clickers". Do your homework and factor this into your plans.
Regardless of the material, you will likely need to perform some regular maintenance tasks. A garage door professional can examine common problem areas to ensure all are working as they should. Additionally, it is necessary to examine the integrity of the door itself, since your garage can be especially vulnerable to security issues if your door is not structurally sound.
