Garage Door Repair

Garage Door Repair NJ / NY 

We are the top garage door repair NJ / NY company. We highly advise you read the information below as it is a sea of knowledge. Always have a professional look at the garage door before trying to do a garage door repair on your own.

Imagine this scenario; we hear a loud bang in our garage that makes us leap out of our seats in shock. We go to inspect it and there’s a void where one of the springs in your garage door opening mechanism used to be. You try to operate it and nothing happens—the door is broken. Then you need to manually start lifting the door just to get your car out of the garage. Finally you may even find that the extension spring snapped and flew into the windshield of your car. 

This is when you need the services of a garage door repair specialist (and probably your insurance company to get your windshield repaired!). Unfortunately, garage doors have a tendency to break and with so many important parts on a single piece of equipment, there are several different points of failure that can be catastrophic. Imagine if your garage door opener suddenly stopped working and was permanently locked. Again, you’d have to manually move the door to let your car in and out of the garage. That could take extra time that you don’t have.

The springs on your garage door could also snap or break, and this can lead to severe damage or even death. If the torsion spring breaks, then it will send the door slamming down. Garage doors weigh a lot, so this can easily crush a human being. With so many dangers, it’s a good idea to get your garage door serviced on a regular basis. Most of us don’t know how a garage door responds when it starts to fail. Nevertheless this is why you need the professional opinion of a service such as Tri-State Garage Services. Garage door repair is a serious matter, so don’t take it lightly!

Why You Should Never Do DIY Garage Door Repair

You might be thinking “but why hire a professional when I can just contact my friends or do it myself?”. 

A garage door opens and closes roughly 1,500 times in a year for the average American. This equates to around 4 operations per day and it’s a fairly accurate number. After all, if you leave the house in the morning then you open and close the garage door. When you come back that’s another two operations to let your car back in. It goes without saying that we rely on our garage doors for safety, security and peace of mind. Why not invest more money by hiring a professional to keep it well-maintained instead of doing it yourself?

In addition, garage doors can be harmful if you attempt repairs without the correct tools and safety gear. The springs are loaded in garage door mechanisms, so if you handle them incorrectly or fail to unwind the springs properly, then it could break your garage door and cause more damage, resulting in higher repair bills than you would’ve initially thought. This is a bad scenario for everyone involved.

With so much experience at our fingertips, we’re the ultimate solution for anyone in the NY and NJ area who wants to repair or install a garage door.

Same Day Garage Door Spring Repairs

The most common point of failure in modern garage doors are the springs. The springs are perhaps the most important component in our garage doors because they ultimately contain all of the strength that is needed to lift and lower the door itself. Contrary to popular belief, it’s actually the springs that do most of the heavy lifting and not the garage door opener. There are two main types of springs; the torsion spring and the extension spring.

Garage Door Torsion Spring Repair

The torsion spring controls the opening and closing of the door. If it breaks, it will release the door and cause it to slam into the ground. Extension springs, on the other hand, are used to help lower the door in a safe manner. A common sign of a broken or damaged extension spring is when the door lowers in a rough or aggressive manner. This is commonly fixed by equalizing the tension of the extension springs (there is one of either side of the door) but if the springs are wearing down or installed incorrectly, then you may need to completely replace them.

Garage door springs can be incredibly dangerous. As mentioned before, a broken torsion spring will release the door and it will crush anything in its path. Broken extension springs snap out of their housing and could fly across your garage. It’s always recommended to hire professionals to help you deal with garage door spring repairs.  The professionals tools and expertise can restore your door to its former condition.
