With Spring just around the corner you might notice that your garage doors are in need of repair. Well, great news if you’re in the Hamilton, Burlington, Niagara areas;
Garage Door Canada does garage door repairs!
We also carry a full line of garage door parts and garage door opener parts if you’re an experienced do it your selfer.
Some of the common repairs with garage doors are;
Torsion Springs; These have a cycle life of approximately 10,000 cycles, so if you open and close your door 3 times per day then the life of your garage door Torsion Springs would be around 10 years.
Garage Door Cables; These will often rust on the bottom loop from moisture on the floor in your garage.
In addition to garage door repairs, we do a number of garage door opener repairs for many brands including; Liftmaster/Chamberlain, and Sears Craftsman garage door openers.
Common repairs for garage door openers are; Worn gear sets, Safety Sensors that are clipped to the tracks, normally about 6” to 12” off the bottom. Over time the sensors can pick up moisture off the floor and cause them to malfunction.
We also do a lot of repairs for worn rollers. These are the rollers that run in the garage door track. When your rollers wear you’ll hear a lot of clicking, and noise from your track and it’s going to impede the motion of your door which can cause other problems if not addressed.
Worn hinges, weather seals are also common repairs. Weather seals frequently need to be replaced. Some of the old wood doors had what we call a wood stop or a piece of 1” X 3” trim around the outside that doesn’t provide a lot of protection against wind and drafts. What we do to repair this situation is replace the wood stop with a modern double-fin rubber seal that’s going to eliminate a lot of the drafts that are going to come through your garage in the colder months.
Your garage door might also have some of the cheaper “builder-grade” weather seals that doesn’t really provide much in the way of protection either so we offer a better quality seal to replace those and again eliminate some of the drafts that are present around your garage door.
Our weather stripping can be retro fitted to any garage door.
If you prefer to do repairs on your own, and we caution people to make sure you have experience in dealing with any of the components of the Torsion Spring Cables. It’s a dangerous repair if you don’t fully understand how a garage door works.
