Your door won't open because the heart of the lifting system is broken. We will replace the broken spring with a high quality one that's made in the USA. If you have two springs, standard procedure is to replace both so they are on equal life cycles. Typically, a single-car door needs one spring, and two-car doors need two. If your double door has one, you can decide whether to leave it as is or update to two (recommended).
Flat-Rate, Out-the-Door Price (Covers Parts, Labor, Sales Tax):
Single Car Garage Door/One Spring: $245
Double Car Garage Door/Two Springs: $345
Your door either won't open or close correctly, it's clearly crooked, or one side seems to be higher off the floor when closed. We'll rebalance the door, can replace broken or worn cables, and carry additional parts that may be needed in that assembly (cable drums, for example). All you have to do is book the appointment, and let us worry about everything else.
Flat-Rate, Out-the-Door Price (Covers Parts, Labor, Sales Tax): $175
Garage openers typically last a decade or longer, but they occasionally fail and need to be replaced. We can replace the automatic opening system with one of our favorite units OR you can provide the unit you want to use. We don't repair existing units, but we're happy to replace them.
Our Liftmaster openers are better built, last longer, and include a solid, one-piece rail. The operators found at the hardware stores include rails with separate sections. This leads to noise and joints that easily fail.
Flat-Rate, Out-the-Door Price (Covers Parts, Labor, Sales Tax):
Pro-X Supplied Liftmaster System: $695*
Customer Supplied Unit (Labor Only): $375
*Price covers the five most common units we sell. If you require a less common, higher end unit, we will provide an updated, up-front cost.
We handle typical problems such as your door won't open, won't close, won't close flush, makes too much noise, etc. Contact us via phone, text, or email and describe your issue. We can likely evaluate which service is needed and schedule it if you'd like.
We accept cash, check, credit card, Venmo, and Apple Pay
Any work we complete on your garage door includes a one year parts and labor warranty as assurance that it was done properly. If the parts we use fail within a year, we will come back and replace them 100% free of charge. Garage door parts are made to last up to a decade or longer. This warranty is simply for your peace of mind that the job was done correctly.
Please make sure there is space to work in front of and on either side of the garage door from the inside. If there is no access to these areas, we cannot complete the work. Pull your vehicles out of the garage (unless they're trapped inside due to the door not opening).
Unfortunately, no. We currently only offer repair services.
No, we don't provide this service.
We almost never see extension springs anymore, so we only work on standard torsion springs. Extension springs are springs that you can see on the sides of the ceiling tracks which hold your garage door when open. The operate differently than standard torsion springs (visible on a bar that's mounted on the wall above your closed garage door). We only work on torsion spring doors.
We work on the overwhelming majority of residential garage doors. This includes single and double car doors which are 7-8ft tall (7ft most common). We don't work on RV doors, shop doors, warehouse doors, or other less common or unique doors in residential settings.
When booking online or by phone, we rely on customer-supplied information to deliver a price. We never raise prices or try to sell you upgrades on top of the quoted service. The prices you see here are the exact prices you'll pay.
If upon inspection, the service you've selected would not remedy the problem you have, we will explain this thoroughly and give you the option to proceed or not.
For example, if you schedule a broken spring repair, but it turns out the automatic opener was broken (not the springs), the repair service will need to be changed and the price will increase. We can help identify the problem via phone if you're not sure. SImply call or text us.
We only replace current systems where wiring and ceiling brackets are already present.
While it's farily uncommon, some heavy residential garage doors will have as many as four springs. Our listed prices include one or two springs only, so please call or text us if you have more. We will provide a custom quote.
The most common problem we encounter is for a broken garage door spring. The springs are under a lot of daily stress, and they will eventually fail. We replace these broken garage door springs with brand new, American made ones. Another common issue has to do with the lift cable and drum assembly. The drum is the wheel which the lift cables are wound onto and turn to lift or lower the door. These cables, also under a tremendous amount of stress, can break, detach from the garage door, or unwind from the drum. This renders the lift system inoperable. We can replace or repair these cables, drums, lower bracket, or whatever the issue is. Finally, we see many issues with the automatic garage door openers themselves. Assuming there are no other issues with the lift system, the automatic opener may fail from simple wear and tear. We replace these broken units with a brand new, quiet, belt operated system.

Your garage door is a workhorse, providing convenience and security for your home. However, like any mechanical system, it may encounter issues from time to time. In this guide, we'll explore some common garage door problems and provide troubleshooting tips to help homeowners address them effectively.
1. Unresponsive Garage Door Opener
Problem: Your garage door opener isn't responding to remote commands.
Check the remote batteries and replace them if needed.
Ensure the opener is plugged in and receiving power.
Verify that there are no obstructions blocking the garage door sensors.
2. Noisy Garage Door Operation
Problem: Your garage door is making unusual or loud noises during operation.
Lubricate the moving parts, including hinges, rollers, and springs (don't touch springs by hand).
Inspect the tracks for debris or misalignment and clean or realign as necessary.
Tighten any loose hardware, such as nuts and bolts.
3. Slow or Jerky Door Movement
Problem: Your garage door is moving slower than usual or exhibiting jerky movements.
Check for obstructions in the tracks and remove them.
Lubricate the garage door springs, rollers, and hinges.
Examine the cables for fraying or damage and replace if necessary.
4. Uneven Closing or Opening
Problem: Your garage door is closing or opening unevenly.
Inspect the tracks for bends or misalignment and correct as needed.
Check the balance of the door by disconnecting the opener and operating it manually.
5. Garage Door Reverses Before Closing
Problem: The garage door starts to close but then immediately reverses.
Clear any debris or obstructions from the garage door sensors.
Check the alignment of the garage door sensors
Check for broken or damaged springs and replace if necessary.
Regularly troubleshooting and addressing common garage door problems can prevent larger issues and extend the lifespan of your garage door system. While some issues can be resolved with simple maintenance, others may require the expertise of a professional garage door repair service. If you find yourself unable to resolve a problem or if the issue persists, don't hesitate to seek professional assistance to ensure the continued safety and functionality of your garage door.

When it comes to garage doors, achieving the ideal balance is more than just a matter of convenience; it's a fundamental aspect of safety and functionality. To test this, disengage your automatic opener so that the door can be raised and lowered manually. A perfectly balanced garage door should stay in position halfway up, remain securely open without any unexpected falls, and close effortlessly without requiring excessive force. Let's delve into why this equilibrium is crucial and how you can ensure your garage door achieves it.
Staying Put at the Midway Point
A well-balanced garage door should effortlessly hold its position when opened halfway. When the door remains steady at the midway point, it illustrates that your counter-balance system is in equilibrium. If your springs aren't producing enough upward force, the door will likely descend down. If they're producing too much force, the door will tend to continue opening higher.
If the door held in place at the midway point, there's no chance it will fall from the raised position. However, it is essential to test the upward force here and confirm that the door will stay in place. If it tries to open beyond the garage frame, it may be producing too much opening pressure.
Closing Effortlessly: A Gentle Descent
Closing your garage door shouldn't feel like a battle of strength. A balanced garage door should glide down smoothly without requiring a ton of force. Excessive resistance during the closing process not only indicates a potential balance issue but also puts strain on various components, potentially leading to premature wear and tear. While your garage door operator aids in lifting the door, if it has to struggle against the springs during lowering, it can cause equal damage.
Tips for Achieving and Maintaining Balance:
Spring Tension Adjustment: The garage door springs play a pivotal role in achieving balance. We can help ensure the correct tension for your specific door.
Regular Lubrication: Keep all moving parts, including hinges and rollers, well-lubricated. This minimizes friction, allowing for smoother operation.
Visual Checks: Regularly visually inspect the door for signs of wear, misalignment, or damage. Addressing issues promptly can prevent them from evolving into more significant problems.

If there's one constant in the world, it's that moving parts break. Garage door springs are no exception. While torsion springs are made of high-strength steel, the constant stress of winding and unwinding leads to eventual failure. American-made springs have an industry standard life of at least 10,000 cycles. A cycle is comprised of one open and one close. To put this into perspective, two cycles per day would mean the spring would last 14 years. Most families use the garage door more than this, so the actual duration will likely be shorter.
There are some tips to extend the lifespan of your springs. The best thing you can do is keep them lubricated with garage-specific lubricant. This cuts down on the friction and heat produced, thereby helping the springs last longer. You can also avoid unnecessarily opening your door. For example, take that trash bag out of the front door as opposed ot the garage door.
If you find that your springs are breaking in a relatively short time, you may require high cycle springs. These are rated to last longer, sometimes 20,000-50,000 cycles.

Your garage door rollers, or wheels, could be responsible for most of the noise you hear when it's in operation. One idea most people get is to apply some grease to the rollers in order to quiet them down. Yes, this works...at first. The problem with grease is that it attracts surrounding dirt and grime. When you use grease on the garage rollers, it will eventually start penetrating into the ball bearings inside of the wheels themselves. This grease and dirt mixture will begin to cause more problems that it solves. In addition to this, the now-dirty grease will expand into the door tracks and create an even bigger mess.
Using a liquid lubricant is significantly better in the long run. Most hardware stores sell lubricant made specifically for garage door parts, but most lubricating sprays will do the trick. You can spray the wheels themselves and the stem of the wheels inside of the door hinges and brackets.

If you have ever looked into garage door springs, you'll notice there are a million different variations. The first reaction to this is to wonder why sizing can't be simplified and standardized. The problem has to do with the varying weights of garage doors and the path in which they open. The garage springs have to do two things. They have to absorb the weight of the door to make opening possible, but they also have to keep the door heavy enough that it closes just as easily. Much like most things in life, it's a balancing act.
If there was a standard spring size, but non-standard garage door weights, you could never achieve the balance needed to both easily open the door AND keep it closed when it needs to be. The springs have to be wound a specific number of times because they have to turn the cable drums a specific number of times to lift the door a specific amount of feet. Because the lift distance is fairly standardized, and therefore the drum spins are standardized, and therefore the spring spins are standardized, the only thing that can vary to accomodate the different weights of garage doors is the size and length of the springs.

Garage door springs supply the upward force needed to allow your opener to lift your garage door. Even a standard two car door could weigh nearly 200lbs. Without a system to counterbalance this weight, your automatic opener would need to be the size of, basically, a jet engine! The spring system delivers torque by way of tension. When the garage door is closed, the springs are wound to maximum tension. As your garage door rises, the springs naturally want to unwind. This unwinding pressure turns a tube that is attached by wires to your garage door. This torque turns the tube and helps lift the garage door.
