New Garage Door Opener Installation
Garage door openers can wear out over time and will eventually need to be replaced. But openers may encounter problems before they wear out, and it doesn’t necessarily mean they need replacing. Of course, every case is different, and the only way to know for sure is to call your local garage door company, but here are a few common issues that are usually easy to diagnose:
Common Door Opener Problems
There are a few common garage door malfunctions that could be a sign of a faulty opener rather than a bigger problem with the entire door. A few of these issues include:
- Door not opening all the way. This could be a sign that your door’s travel settings are incorrect. “Travel” refers to the distance the door travels when opened or closed.
- Door opens but won’t close, or closes but won’t open. This could be an issue with the springs, cables, or sensors. Professional diagnostics are the best way to figure out what’s wrong.
- Door “bounces” when closing and opens back up. This is most likely an issue with the force settings — the amount of force the opener system uses to open and close your door.
- Garage door remotes not working. This could be as simple as a dead battery, but there are other causes too. If a new battery doesn’t fix the issue, give us a call to run diagnostics.
We Install LiftMaster Garage Openers
Some homeowners aren’t aware that there are a number of different types of garage door openers. Those types are chain drive, belt drive, and jackshaft. Chain drive openers are a budget-friendly option that may require more maintenance than others. Belt drives are quieter and lower-maintenance, but come at a higher upfront cost than chain drive systems. Jackshaft openers are the quietest and don’t require rails. They’re the most expensive upfront, but will need far less maintenance over time — meaning you could save money on garage door repairs over time. LiftMaster offers models of all three types, and we can help you select the one that’s best for your home.
Our team works primarily with LiftMaster openers because of their wide variety of tried and true machines. There is a wide range of features and extras that go along with these openers, so don’t hesitate to ask about them. Chances are, our garage door technicians will be able to find something that suits your needs perfectly.
