This warranty covers defective parts and labor for the warranty term listed starting from the date of installation. The garage door manufacturer provides their own separate warranty to you for the door and its parts and thus this warranty does NOT cover the door or its parts. This warranty also does NOT cover the door due to any malfunction or subsequent damage to the door during operation or lack thereof. We will correct any listed part that fails due to defective workmanship and, if a part is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty, we will repair or replace that defective part charging only the $89.00 deductible during the noted warranty period. This warranty applies to both new and COMPLETE overhaul of the garage door opener system. Partial overhauls or repairs do not qualify for this warranty.
Parts not covered: Bulbs, batteries, commercial use, misuse or abuse as well as damage caused by accident, flood, fire, any act of God, civil disturbance, war or terrorism or lack of regular maintenance or exposure to any corrosive environment or unauthorized repair or repair parts.
Yes! We can repair all parts of your residential garage door.
Yes! We can replace your old or damaged garage doors. We also can install garage doors on your new construction project or remodel.
You should have your garage door serviced once a year. You should also check the balance of your door once a month.
There are multiple reasons your door may not be opening:
The two most common reasons for this are either the sensors are out of alignment or damaged, or your settings on the operator are out of adjustment.
Check that your sensors are both on and aligned. Follow your owners manual for your operator to check the open/close settings are set properly and adjust if needed.
Here are the most common spring systems for a garage door and how to tell the difference:
Torsion springs have a standard life expectancy of 10,000 cycles. On average if you open and close your door 4 times a day (4 cycles) that would net you a between 6-7 years of use.
with the proper springs installed, you should be able to test the balance of your door to determine if your springs need to be replaced. If your door isn’t holding itself up at the half way point then you should consider getting the springs replaced before they snap and trap you in the garage.
YES! On a two spring system, you should always replace both springs.
Yes, we can get a higher cycle spring setup for your door. This is beneficial if you are using your garage door multiple times a day as a primary entrance into and out of your home. Sometimes this will require an extra trip to a supplier to get a different set of springs for your door.
Most operators have an average life expectancy of 10-15 years, but it is more based on the use of the operator and how well it is maintained.
We install and recommend operators manufactured from LiftMaster, and Linear.
Most new operators offered today have vehicle Home-Link comparability. You will have to follow your vehicle manufactures instructions to set the programming.
This depends on the age and use of the operator, and what is failing on it. Sometimes repairing an old operator can be as expensive as simply replacing it with a new unit.
Check the battery first. If you have a good battery, check that the buttons on the remote aren’t getting stuck. Follow the manufacturer instructions to reset the programming. Remotes can be fragile. If they have been dropped or damaged, they may need to be replaced.
Check the battery in the keypad first. If you have a good battery, try following the instructions on the underside of the lid to reset the programming.
This is typically an issue with the safety sensors.
There are a few different things that may be happening with the sensors:
This can be caused by two different things:
If you have an old door that isn’t performing like it should, or have any damage to your door, you should consider replacement.
This depends on if the model of door you have is still offered by the manufacturer. If it is available, then it can be replaced. A technician will be able to give you the best idea if it is worthwhile to replace a section alone, or the complete door.

Most common doors today are built in either a steel or aluminum construction.
Yes. Different manufactures offer different color and wood grain options.
Custom colors are also available! We can paint the door for you all we ask is that you provide the exact color code you want.
You will want to measure the opening on your house.
Yes! We always recommend getting an insulated door. Insulated doors tend to last longer and perform better.
Yes, there are different types and levels of insulation. This is called R-Value. The higher the R-value, the more thermally efficient the door will be. There are two main types of insulation. Polystyrene insulation is the most common, and is the less expensive option. Polyurethane is the higher grade insulation and more costly, but is great for higher R-value doors.
Yes! If it worked before and had no issues then your existing operator can be used on your new door. Our technician can go over your options with you when deciding on which door you want to purchase.
