Garage Door Repair Montclair
Most people tend to ignore the need for garage door maintenance. When we get a call for a garage door repair, we often ask the customer: “when was the last time that the garage door was maintained”? Most of the time the answers range from “I do not remember” to “the garage
door was never maintained”. We know that most people don’t want to spend money for something that works, but what they don’t know, is that providing their garage door with a maintenance service is actually saving money in the long run. Think about the car you are driving, every car need to be maintained and inspected once in a while. And although the car is working, and it
doesn’t seem like there is something wrong with it, no one will ignore the need of their car for tune up and oil change, since eventually the car will stop working, and the cost for the neglecting the car will probably cost way more than if they would of inspect it on time.
The maintenance of the garage door is not a complicated process, and shouldn’t take more than 20-30 minutes, as long as it is being done by a professional garage door tech. the maintenance include lubrication of some of the parts of the garage door, adjusting the springs, tune the opener, and inspecting the garage door and the parts of the door, making sure that the garage door is safe for use, and that there are no damaged, broken or lose parts which need to be repaired or replaced. It is important to make sure (if the door is automated) to make sure that the safety feature are working, and that opener is adjust to work properly.
The process of garage door maintenance is not a complicated one. In case you decide to perform the maintenance by yourself, it is important that you will be careful, and make sure that you know exactly what you are doing. The first thing you need to do, before you even start the maintenance, you must make sure that all the people who use the garage door are informed that you are performing the maintenance, and make sure no one is going to try and use the garage door while you are working on it. After that, you must disconnect the garage door opener from the electricity, in case someone will try to use the door by mistake.
Again, we do not recommend to perform the maintenance without the assistance of a professional technician, which will perform the check list that appear bellow:
Perform safety check – part of the maintenance is to test the safety reverse system (automated garage door) to make sure that the door is safe for use. Make sure that if while the door is moving, something is crossing the laser beam which run between the sensors, the door should reverse it movement, in order to avoid hurting the object which crossed it path. Lubrication of the garage door the parts of the door that need to be lubricated (including dive train and sprockets). Inspection of the garage door parts for lose, damaged or broken parts. In case there are damaged parts, the technician will replace them with new parts, or reinforce the lose parts. Check the connections of the parts to make sure all of them are tighten. If there are broken parts, or if the frame is not strong enough or damaged, there may not be safe for use. Adjust the garage door springs and opener. The springs are the force that lift the door, and should be adjust in order to prevent the opener from doing the lifting.
A federal law require every motorized garage door to include a safety feature, which will protect and prevent the moving garage door from hurting someone or something which is located at the garage door’s path. If you own an automated garage door, make sure that it is equipped
with safety feature such as the garage door safety sensors.
The safety sensors are installed on each side of the garage door, next or on the tracks, and no higher than 6 inches from the floor (to protect pets or small objects). The safety sensors should be installed facing each other, and if something will interrupt the invisible laser beam which run between the two sensors, the closing door will stop it movement and reverse to open position, and by that protect
and avoid hurting the object which interrupt with the laser beam.
As we mentioned earlier, every automated garage door must include a safety feature. Under no circumstances, you should disable or remove the safety sensors, unless if it is for repair or replacement. Make sure that the safety sensors are installed correctly, and that the
wiring is not damaged and well connected. If you fail to perform a correct installation, you will not be able to close the garage door using the garage door motor, and you won’t be able to use the door automatically.

Sometime the reason that the garage door need to be repaired is a problem with the garage door opener. But many times the problem is actually with the mechanism of the door, such as a broken spring, which make it hard, or impossible for the opener to open and close the garage door.
Now it is good time to explain, that the reason which make it easy to open the garage door, and that prevent it from crashing to the ground is not the opener, but the spring system. And if the spring break, the opener need to do the opening and closing instead of the spring, and that
make it seem like the opener is having a problem. In general, we can say that if your garage door is not working properly when you use it manually – Without the opener – you should not try and use it with the opener. Garage door opener should only be installed and used when the door is working properly manually.
One of the most common garage doors problem, is a broken spring. When a garage door spring is broken, the door cannot work, until you replace the broken spring with a new one. One of the reasons that lead to a broken garage door spring, is lack of garage door maintenance, which should be
performed at least every six months. That is why we highly recommend, to provide your garage door with a maintenance service, at least every 6 months, to make sure that door will continue to work in a perfect way for many more years.
If the spring of your garage door is broken, or if you think that the spring need an adjustment, we highly recommend that you stop using the door, and call a garage door company in Montclair. If you will continue to use the damaged door, not only that you will make the problem
worst, but it can be dangerous to you, or to those who uses the garage door.

Most overhead garage doors are equipped with either torsion spring system, or extension spring system. The springs are the power that make even the heaviest doors to open so smoothly even when they are being used manually. If your garage door is equipped with torsion spring system, you will be able to see the springs 0 or a single spring in some cases – installed on top of the open, wrapped around the shaft. Those spring are usually installed for commercial garage doors in Montclair, since they are designed to take more weight when they are properly installed. If you are searching for a garage door supplier in Montclair, to purchase torsion springs and to install them by yourself, you should think again. Torsion spring repair is something that require certain tools and of course knowledge that in some cases only a trained garage door technician possess.

not to advice in that matter, since after many years of repairing torsion springs in Montclair, we saw some cases when trying to replace a torsion spring without the needed tools and experience ended badly.
Most overhead doors in Montclair include extension sparing system. When you look at your door, locate the tracks, and look above them.

or a spring replacement in Montclair, should include safety cables installation. The safety cables may seem like a waste of money to you, since your door worked fine so far without them, but what you should know is one simple thing: Safety cables can save you a lot of money, and in some cases even protect from injuries.
We will demonstrate with a short story. One of our technicians arrived to a garage door repair in Montclair. The customer had a problem with one of his safety sensors, and he fixed the problem. When he noticed that the door is working by extension springs, and that there are no safety cables installed, he offered the customer to install them for him. The customer replied that the door worked fine for 12 years with no safety cables, so there is no reason why it shouldn’t continue to work.
After 3 months, we are receiving a call from that customer who ask us to send the same technician that we sent him 3 months ago. When the tech arrived, he see that the spring snapped, and that the customer is laughing. Apparently when the spring snapped, the ring fly and broke his windshield, something that cost him 600$.
