Garage Door Springs
When the time comes for you to buy new springs you should consider how long you plan on living in your home. If you will be living there for less than five years you should buy the standard 10,000 cycle life torsion spring. This will give you five to seven years of continuous use. If instead, you plan to live there for many years to come, then consider buying a High Cycle Life Spring. It will cost a little more but you will save hundreds of dollars over next 15 years in labor costs. Instead of paying a labor charge every 5 to 7 years, you will pay only one labor charge. That alone is over $200 savings.

Question: Why the garage door is making strange noises?
Answer: If your garage door started to make strange noises, it usually mean that there is a problem with one or more parts of the garage door (and it also indicate that you probably ignored the need for garage door maintenance). In many cases, replacing the rollers and lubricating the garage door can solve the problem. In general, a yearly maintenance should cover the need for maintenance, and if needed, it include rollers replacement. Whether it is a garage door maintenance in Ontario, or overhead door tune up in Ontario, every garage door need to be tuned.
Question: What is the price of a new garage door?
Answer: We always answer the same way to that question – if you will tell us what is the price of a new car, we will tell you the price of a new garage door… To be serious, the garage door prices are ranging between 200$-100,000$, it all depend on the size, the kind, the installation, yes opener, no window, insulated, material, etc… But what we can say, is that a good garage door installation include a high quality garage door, and since a high quality garage door should last for many years, we recommend you to invest some more money, and get a high quality garage door, from the kind that will serve you for many years.
Question: My garage door opener does not work, what is wrong with it?
Answer: There are many reasons that can lead to a garage door opener that does not work properly. It is hard for us to try and figure the problem without inspecting the opener, and locate the problem. From safety sensor problem, to a gear problem, to a broken spring or torn cable which affect the way the opener work. If there is one thing we can recommend you, is that if there is a problem with your garage door opener, avoid using the garage door, since it can lead to a bigger damage. (Sometime the opener is disengaged from the carriage, and although everything is fine, and there is no problem with the opener, the garage door itself doesn’t move. If that is the case, all you need to do is to reengage the opener, and the door will work again).
Question: My garage door is out of track, what should I do?
Answer: There are many reasons that can lead to an out of track garage door. The most important thing, is to stop using the door, and to avoid forcing the garage door back into track, since that can be dangerous and can cause a greater damage. It may seem easy to push the roller back into the track, but by doing that you did not solve the reason that lead to an out of track garage door. But no need to worry, we offer a 24-7 emergency garage door repair in Ontario, so you know that no matter what time or what day, someone will always be there for you.
Question: When my garage door is released, it fall, what should I do?
Answer: A good garage door, which is correctly balanced, should stay at the same position by the force of the springs. If your garage door is falling down, most likely that you need some adjustment or spring replacement. Maybe now it is time to make it clear that the force which make it easy to lift the heavy door, or the force which prevent the door from crashing into the floor is not the garage door motor, but the garage door spring system.
Question: One of the springs broke, what should I do?
Answer: A broken garage door spring is a common problem, and should be repaired by a trained repairman. Do not try and use the garage door, since you will only increase the damage. If it is torsion spring system, we can only recommend you to avoid the DIY, explanations you can
find online, since it is a dangerous project which require special tools, and require more knowledge than what you can find online.

When you are looking for a new store front gate in Ontario, or for a commercial roll door repair in Ontario, there are few things you should know.
The first thing is that quality matter. And if you paid a small amount for the cheapest gate, you will probably end with paying more than double with time. When you are using a cheap rolling gate installer in Ontario, you are risking in getting a gate that will last 2-5 years, and may need
repairs in the next winter. But if you are using the best roll up gate supplier in Ontario, you will get a roll gate that can last for 30 years and more, and besides greasing every 6 months, will not require any service even during the toughest months of the winter in Ontario.
The second thing you should pay attention to is the new rolling gate installation. It can be a rolling gate in Ontario, or a new overhead door in the Ontario, but there is another thing that you shouldn’t look for the cheapest (Assuming you want quality) and that’s the installer. Look
for a professional installer, who have experience in installing new rolling gates in Ontario, and who can deal with different types of gates installation. As we always like to say, there are many different store fronts in Ontario, and there are no 2 identical installing for rolling
gates in Ontario. And to get the best possible installation for your new rolling gate in Ontario, aim for the best. We do not offer the cheapest prices in Ontario. But what we do offer is high quality service and professional technicians. There are many handymen in Ontario who claim they can fix rolling gates and install new rolling gates, but the truth is that there is no replacement for being a pro. If you need a new roll up gate installation in Ontario, use the services of a rolling gate specialist, who will be able to deal with the difficulties that a rolling gate installer in Ontario need to face.
A short story about a roll up gate re-installation in Ontario. Once we were asked by a customer to remove a rolling gate from one of his locations in Ontario, and to install the old rolling gate in Ontario. After we examined the job, we told him that reinstalling the same gate will be a mistake, since it will cost more money than to remove it and install a brand new rolling gate, just like we did many times with many store front gates service in Ontario. That customer told us that we try to steal his money, and said he prefer to go with someone else, who also offer rolling gate installation in Ontario. We thanked him for giving us a chance and wished him good luck. After two weeks he called our office, apologized and asked us to come again. When we asked what happened, he said come and see by yourself. It turned out that the other person who said that he can do the job, was no more than a general contractor, who had zero experience in dealing with roiling gates in Ontario, and when he tried to install
the old gate in the new location, he found that it is not as easy as it seemed. The conclusion from that story (And from many other stories we will share in the future)? Listen to the professionals, and to the people that fixing roll up gates in Ontario is what they do, and who can say that after so many years in the field, there is no rolling gate, roll up door, or any other kind of steel gate in Brooklyn that can surprise them.
With these switches the garage door system now had different “codes.” This new system was not really designed with security in mind. The idea was not to interfere with other garage door openers, and security appeared to be an afterthought. Advances had been made in the drive method with cables, toothed nylon belts and in the U.S. a screw drive operation. However they were all still fairly basic and crude compared to today’s operators. The screw-drive method of moving the door could be forced backwards if enough force was applied to the door panel itself. Courtesy light comes on when operator is activated and switches off after about 3 minutes electric operator with courtesy light for security and safety The current electric garage door operator market offers a variety of high tech garage door openers. The frequency spectrum ranges and most of these garage door openers rely on ‘hopping’ or ‘rolling code’ technology. Encoders in the transmitter and decoders in the receiver work on a rolling code that prevent perpetrators from recording a code and replaying it to open a garage door. Because the signal is supposed to be significantly different than that of any other garage door remote control, manufacturers claim it is impossible for someone other than the
owner of the remote to open the garage. When the transmitter sends a code, it generates a new code using an encoder. The receiver, after receiving a correct code, uses the same encoder with the same original seed to generate a new code that it will accept in the future. Because there is a high
probability that someone might accidentally push the open button while not in range and de-synchronize the code, the transmitter and receiver generate look-a-head codes ahead of time. This system is used by roller shutter remote controls as well as sectional and up and over garage door operators.
As well as these advances in remote control operation things have developed in the mechanics of the operator boom and tow arm system to ensure the garage door is held firmly closed and even locked in three places. Security is really the main feature as well as complete safety in all modern garage door operators.
NEVER fit an electric garage door opener if it does not have a fully functional, CE compliant safety return mechanism to stop the motor immediately when an obstruction is hit. Even the infra red safety beam system only protects a small proportion of a garage doors entire travel and should only
be an additional safety device to a standard auto return system.
The latest CE standards require a very fast reaction time for the operator motor to reverse as soon as it has struck an obstacle for minimization of potential injury when obstructed.
Soft start and stop operation now ensures a gentle closing and opening action taking stress out of the garage door mechanism whilst offering a smoother and quieter movement. All the leading European manufacturers also now use 24v DC motors for total reliability and quietness.
The Cardale Autoglide electric operator – specifically designed for Cardale canopy garage doors.
The Autoglide is no longer available and we still recommend as we have for many years the use of the canopy bow arm converter with a good quality boom type operator.
Canopy garage doors (springs across the top of the door) are notoriously awkward to automate properly and should be very well balanced before installing any kind of operator system.
Canopy door bow arm convertors used with boom operators will not automate all makes of canopy garage doors but are very good on the garage doors they will work with.
Speak to our sales experts for advice on the best operator for your door make and type.
Ken Davidson Garage Doors can offer a whole range of different electric operators for steel, GRP and timber side hinged garage doors and there are 2 main types used. One utilizes the standard boom type operator used for all other types of doors along with a conversion kit and the other type uses electromagnetic or hydraulic piston driven units very similar to the type used for electric swing gates.
Accessories have also developed with technological advances and many other methods of activating Hormann fingerscan access control the garage door opener are now available other than a hand held remote, which quite often is misplaced or dropped and broken.
External wireless keypads are very useful when you have a lot of people in your family using the garage door frequently, especially if for accessing fridges, freezers, bikes or other items which are retrieved on foot.
