Helping Homeowners with Expert Garage Door Motor Repair

When your garage door motor is on the fritz, everything takes a sudden turn for the worse. Your home can feel like a trap, and your favorite activities, like washing your car or going out for brunch, can become ordeals.

Even handling the Orange County heat cost-effectively can get harder when you’re struggling with garage problems. This is particularly true when your motor fails to shut the door fully. Finding garage door motor repair options near you is the only way to get back into the swing of life as usual.

If you want your garage door motor to work quietly behind the scenes, then it’s essential to complete this job properly. At Sunwest Garage Doors, we firmly believe in performing fast, flawless repairs. We’re proud to help you preserve your home’s value by keeping it in the best possible condition.

The Complexity of Garage Door Motor Repairs

Fixing a garage door motor isn’t the same as fixing something like a crooked cabinet or toilet seat. Unlike jobs that anyone can learn to tackle, garage repairs take years of training, attention to detail, and first-hand experience.

This makes sense when you consider everything that goes into keeping your door in top shape. For instance, you might just be focusing on your faulty motor – It’s easy to overlook that it’s part of a larger system.

What happens if your motor isn’t properly tuned? Unfortunately, if it doesn’t work smoothly with the pulleys, springs, electrical wiring, and other components, then you’ll ultimately end up needing more work done later!

What Makes an Effective Garage Door Motor Repair?

Our work always starts with a top-to-bottom inspection. By accurately diagnosing each problem we encounter, we’re able to determine ideal solutions that save you from wasting money on unnecessary labor.

Some garage door motor repairs might look as easy as replacing a part or two, but there’s a catch: It’s vital to understand which component is misbehaving and how to select a replacement that won’t do the same. In the world of garage service, it pays to have hands-on experience, and we’re proud to leverage decades of training and expertise on your behalf.

Before we call a job finished, we always test our work. Problems like minor misalignments or improper tensioning can wear your hardware down over time. Our strict quality control practices ensure these subtle issues won’t catch you off guard down the line.

FAQsGarage Door Motor Repair

Types of Garage Door Motors

  • Chain Drive Garage Door Opener – A chain drive garage door opener is the most common and affordable type. This garage door opener type is usually the best choice if you’re looking for a simple system that gets the job done. It operates on a metal chain that connects the trolley and motor.
  • Belt Drive Garage Door Opener – A belt drive garage door opener has a similar mechanism to the chain drive garage door opener, but it operates on a rubber belt instead of a metal chain. This makes them a great smooth motion alternative if you’re looking for a quiet garage door opener.
  • Screw Drive Garage Door Opener – With a screw drive garage door opener, a trolley moves along a threaded steel rod while the motor rotates the rod, opening and closing the garage door. This garage door opener type tends to land as the midrange option between chain and belt drive openers for both quiet operation and longevity.
  • Jackshaft Garage Door Opener – A jackshaft garage door opener is also called a wall mount garage door opener or side mount garage door opener. A jackshaft garage door opener is your modern option for garage door opener upgrades. Instead of being installed on the ceiling like chain and belt drives, a jackshaft garage door opener is installed on the wall beside the garage door. It is a great option if you want high lift tracks or have a heavy garage door.
  • Direct Drive Garage Door Opener – A direct drive garage door opener is another modern option known for its quiet operation. It is built with a stationary chain inside a steel rail, meaning it has only one moving part located in the traveling motor carriage. This lack of moving parts makes a direct drive garage door opener a great option if you want a quiet garage door opener.

    Service Appointment Speed

    Our goal is always to get you the help you need as quickly as possible. This is why we offer same day service appointments. As you can imagine, there are a limited number of same day appointments available and they do run on a first come first serve basis. The sooner you call, the faster we can serve you. If a same day appointment isn’t available, we can more often than not schedule a convenient time for you the next day.

    Service Appointment Timing

    We offer reasonably tight windows for our arrival. Plus, we’ll call you 30 minutes before we arrive so you don’t have to sit around waiting all day. Our clients have found that this helps them maintain flexibility for their day’s schedule so they aren’t held back by an uncomfortably large window of time. Instead, you’ll be kept updated and will feel in the loop on what’s happening.

    Free Inspections & Estimates

    We will come to your home at no cost and be ready to help you. This allows us to take a real look at the situation so we can give you an accurate, honest, and reasonable estimate.

    Garage Door Motor Repair Pricing

    As a family-owned company we understand the impact that unforeseen expenses can have on a family. This is why we keep our pricing fair and reasonable. We will be honest with you about what’s going on. If a part or something small can just be replaced or repaired for your garage door system to start working again, then we’ll just offer to do that.

    Garage Door Motor Repair

    Needed to have my garage door opener replaced today. Sunwest had Jimmy here in less than an hour. He confirmed the need for replacement of my 20 year old Genie opener. Jimmy took out the old one and replaced with a new Genie opener. Everything works perfectly. He has a friendly customer service attitude and is an asset to Sunwest. Great service.

    Garage Door Opener Repair

    The staff at Sunwest Garage were all friendly, knowledgeable and reliable. They came within the time frame they had indicated and called 15 minutes prior to arrival like they said they would. We had a new garage door opener installed, didn’t take much time and did a great job. The product was awesome and now we can hardly hear the garage door open. The tech took the time to explain some of the door openers features, was very helpful and even answered questions I had on how to clean and paint my garage door. Would highly recommend this local business to others.
