Here are step by step instructions based on your operator model and type of car.
One of the most common problems is the misalignment of the electric eye sensors. There may also be something in front of them, they may have been knocked out of alignment, they may have cobweb build up in the lenses, or a pet or rodent might have chewed the wires.
You may have a broken spring which causes the garage door to be excessively heavy or your garage door operator may need servicing.
The most common reasons include equipment needing lubrication, worn out parts and a garage door that is out of balance. Annual maintenance is recommended and will allow your garage door to run as smoothly and quietly as possible.
Preventative maintenance should be performed once a year in order to prevent inconvenient or potentially dangerous situations. We offer annual, biannual, and quarterly maintenance contracts.
Yes, all remotes have either a 12 Volt, 9 Volt, or 3 Volt battery. Average battery lifetime is 5 years.
Either there is no power to the garage door operator or the battery backup has failed.
The average garage door operator lasts 10-15 years. This is based on regular wear and tear.
The springs either need to be adjusted or replaced. Springs counterbalance the weight of the garage door. When a repair is needed, the garage door will have trouble going up or down.

Wood doors are handmade and carry more prestige.
Paint grade wood doors look very similar to steel doors. A trained eye will notice the wood door’s sharp edges on the panels whereas the steel door has rounded edges on the panels.
Steel doors will always have a glossy UV protection, clear coat and some individuals believe they will always look faux. Steel doors with a wood grain finish have come a long way because of Dual Directional painting as well as 3D printing but they will never look as good as the real thing.
Yes, old barn house wood is used on some wood doors for an extra fee.
The first question to ask is what look am I going with for my home or what type of door supports my home’s design. Is my home designed to look like Cape Cod, like a Cottage, Spanish, or Modern? Next you look at pictures either online or in brochures.
Our manufacturer’s generally give us a quote within 24 hours.
We always send two installers for a wood door because of the weight.
The materials for wood doors are significantly more expensive because the door is made by hand by skilled craftsmen. Because the door is made of more expensive materials and weighs more, two installers are required for installation. Wood doors require repainting or staining whereas steel doors come pre painted with a UV protection, clear coat and will not need to be repainted.
Garage doors in general have a 90% return on their investment. Wood doors are custom and made of fine materials.
