Posted on: June 3, 2014

Garage doors are often an essential part of our home, so when they break it can be quite stressful. LiftPro Garage Door Services of St. Petersburg can repair your broken garage entrance, fast! Check out these common repairs we do on garage openings:

Spring Replacement

While many think that replacing a spring can be a DIY project, it can also be very dangerous, and it’s recommended that you hire a professional to replace these parts. The springs are actually what do much of the lifting work, and are a crucial part of operation. And even while one of the most important parts of the system, they are still one of the most common garage door repair needs.

Broken Cable Repair

If your door works on a pulley system you may, at some point, experience broken cables that need  to be replaced. These cables are fairly inexpensive; however a pulley system can be very complicated for someone who does not have experience working with them. Often the best results can only be achieved with the assistance of professional technicians.

Replacing Bent Tracks

The track is an essential part to your system that works by providing a channel for the guide rollers to travel through as the door opens and closes. If broken or bent, it is sometimes possible that the unit will still operate, but with further damage resulting from continued use. In order for your assembly to open and close properly, without snapping a spring or burning up the motor in the opener, a garage door repair tech must make sure the tracks are straightened and aligned.

Roller Repair

Broken or worn rollers can prevent you’re the opening or closing of your garage door. When the unit still operates despite this, the worn rollers can cause excessive noise when they are operated, and have the potential to cause further damage. Replacing rollers that are worn out, bent, or broken will allow your garage door to open and close smoothly and quietly.
