A garage door is one of the largest and heaviest moving object in one’s home. Homeowners need to ensure that it is functioning well and it is working safely to avoid injuries and hazards.

365 Garage Doors is a professional garage door company that provides garage door repair services for various parts of a garage door. Our services include:




Spring Repair

A garage door spring experiences the most pressure and tension in a garage door because of the heavy lifting, raising, and lowering that a garage door does a couple of times a day. It is also made of metal and it is a natural fact that metal parts rust or break down over time. Because of these reasons, garage door springs are usually the first parts of a garage door that wear and tear.

When you notice that it is quite heavy to lift a garage door when manually opening or closing it, the garage door slams when you try to close it, or you hear squeaky noises while opening or closing it, it’s a sign that there is something wrong with your garage door spring. You might need a garage door spring repair or garage door spring replacement. This needs to be done immediately because it may compromise the safety of your home or office and the people inside it.

The first step when going for a garage door spring repair or replacement is to know the type of garage door spring that you have. There are two kinds of garage door spring: extension spring and torsion spring. Torsion springs are found above the opening of the garage door where they slide onto a bar. Extension springs are located alongside the opening of the garage door.




Opener Repair

A garage door opener may stop working for a number of reasons:

  1. The tracks may be loose or detached from the floor and the walls
  2. There might be a bend or a dent in the track that lets the rollers come off
  3. The tracks may be out of alignment
  4. Debris or grime may build up on the tracks
  5. Broken springs
  6. Accidental force
  7. Closing on an object if the sensor of the garage door are not aligned or are broken

The reasons mentioned above can be easily solved but there are also other reasons that call for services from a professional garage door company. You would need a garage door opener repair in this case. These reasons may include burned out CGI, circuit breaker, or fuse, the motor of the garage door opener burned out and stopped operating, or the door opener chain may also be broken.

It’s not necessary to replace a garage door opener right away. Most of the time, it just needs some repair. Simply contact a reliable garage door company for them to check what went wrong with your garage door opener. They will give you the options for repair and a detailed explanation on what they will do so that you will have an idea on what needs to be done.




Cable Replacement

The garage door cable is an essential part of the garage door system because it is the component that performs the function of closing and opening the garage door. Without the garage door cable, the garage door would be useless. It would be difficult to open a garage door.

A garage door has different types of cables depending on the type of spring that it uses. A garage door with extension springs use retaining cables which can be found inside the springs and run vertically along the right and left sides of the garage door. Retaining cables stop the springs from flying across the room once they break. A garage door with torsion springs use lift cables which are attached to the bottom corners of the garage door and routed to the torsion springs found above the door.

If a garage door cable came off, do not use the door and immediately call for a garage door cable repair or replacement because the broken cable can cause added tension that will be transferred to the other cable and cause a lot of strain on it. This can cause more damage and may also be hazardous.




Roller Replacement

A garage door roller is important to ensure the smooth operation of a garage door. It needs to be properly lubricated, maintained, and replaced from time to time. It is made of different materials, sizes, and quality.

The garage door rollers allow the garage door to slide up and lift the door up into the garage once you open the garage door. These rollers slide along tracks until the door fully retracts. Once you close the garage door, the garage door rollers lowers the door for the smooth closing of the garage door.

When you hear loud noises when opening or closing the garage door, it may mean that your garage door rollers are broken. A garage door roller replacement is necessary to make sure that the garage door opens or closes smoothly. Always opt for a professional garage door roller repair or replacement service from a reliable company instead of doing a DIY project.
