If you hear a mysterious loud bang and suddenly your garage door cannot be lifted, it may be due to a broken spring. Torsion springs typically last 10k cycles of opening and closing your garage. When a spring reaches 10k cycles, the spring begins to wear down and eventually breaks, leaving your car stuck in the garage. If you are currently experiencing this issue, we recommend you call us at 714-528-5670. We’ll send out an experienced technician to fix the issue. We are garage door spring experts, and we carry all sizes so we can ensure that you’ll always get the right spring for your door. Click here to learn more information on garage door springs.
If you have a damaged section, we always recommended replacing that section. Once a section has been dented or damaged in some way, trying to repair it can lead to a safety or operating issue. We have a wide spectrum of garage door styles to choose from in-house. Additionally, we can get any section you choose even if it’s still being manufactured. If you are interested in section replacement, contact us and we’ll walk you through the process.
Door Out Of Track?
It is not uncommon for a garage door to fall out of track. It happens because either a roller has fallen out or the cables have come loose on one of the sides. It is recommended to have a trained professional put the door back in properly to prevent any further damage. Garage doors are typically heavy with lots of moving parts. To perform this repair safely, you should be trained in placing a door back in the track for operation. In our experience, homeowners who attempt this repair on their own typically make it worse. We, in most cases, can save the door if you call us immediately. When we do this job, we reset the cables, place your roller back in the track, and run the opener to make sure everything is functioning properly before we leave.
Broken Garage Door Opener?
A garage door opener is the motor that works to move your door up and down. It can be located on the ceiling of your garage or to the left or right of your door. There are four primary types of openers: chain drive, belt drive, direct drive, and screw drive. Each of these function differently in terms of noise level and longevity. To check the functionality of your opener, see if the light is lit up on the side. If not, the issue might be your electricity. Try resetting your system and checking that everything is plugged in. When you test the electricity and the door still will not open, try opening it manually. If you can open the door manually, then your garage door spring is most likely fine; the issue is your opener.

Garage doors cables are located on the right and left sides of your door. They work with the counterbalance system of your garage door spring in order to open and close the door. Because there are two, they work independently. This means one could break while the other still functions normally. A good way to know if you have a broken cable is if your door rises at an angle. Also, a broken cable will often cause the door to make a loud grinding or squeaking noise. If you experience any of these signs when opening your door, please stop the cycle and call us to schedule a repair.
Areas We Service Garage Doors
Your homeowner’s insurance might cover some damages to your garage door, while other damages might leave you paying the garage door repair bill. Here are some scenarios to find out what’s covered:
1: I hit my garage door with my vehicle.
You happen to crash into your closed garage door. Hopefully, you're safe and uninjured, but which insurance covers the damage to your garage door?
Car insurance typically won’t pay for your garage door because it doesn’t cover damage you've done to your property. However, you can try and file a homeowner’s insurance claim.
2: Someone else hit my garage door with their vehicle.
Let's say someone happens to drive into your closed garage door. In this case, the driver is at fault and whether their car insurance covers it or not, they are responsible for the damages.
3: My garage door just stopped working.
If you have an old garage door and it stops functioning, more than likely you'll have to pay to have it repaired on your own. However, most garage door maintenance problems aren’t covered by homeowners’ insurance. This is because they're an inevitable part of homeownership.
If your garage door doesn’t work because of an electrical issue like a surge or other covered incident, your policy could cover the costs of garage door repairs.
Regardless, in any of these scenarios, it’s important to get your garage door repaired properly to prevent any safety issues. We'd highly recommend you call us at 714-528-5670 to get more information on what you can do to get your garage door repaired properly!
Garage door repair costs vary depending on what exactly broke and what is required to fix it. To find out how much a repair might cost, you first need to find out what needs to be repaired. (If you already know the issue and it is not listed, please call 714-528-5670 to get info on pricing) Here is a list of things that could be wrong with your garage door:
1. Garage door opener won’t work:
In most cases, repairing a garage door opener is an easy fix. Chain or drive screw operated garage door openers that won't work may just need some lubrication to reduce friction. But if that isn’t the case, there might be an electrical issue, making it unsafe to use. This is when we'd recommend you call us to have our experts take a look at what might be the issue. We offer free inspections/estimates!
2. Grinding noises:
Shabby parts, loose hardware, or bent sections can cause the grinding noises coming from your garage door. Generally, if you hear a lot of grinding noises, it's because you need lubrication. In this case, simply apply grease (not spray) directly on the squeaky part.
3. The door closes then immediately opens:
In this scenario, there could be an issue with the alignment of your garage door’s photo-eye. These are the small plastic devices that serve as a safety feature and are located on both sides of the garage door. To confirm the photo-eyes are working correctly, look for a flashing green light, and rub off any dirt or debris that could cover the sensor.
