A garage door is counterbalanced by extension springs or torsion springs connected to cables and pulleys. But these springs are under constant pressure and eventually they wear out. Garage doors can cost $270 for a single door and up to $2,080+ for two doors or more with an average cost of $1,079 for full garage door replacement. This price also includes purchase of new tracks, adhesives, connectors and fasteners. You could install the door yourself but the weight of some garage doors are extremely heavy, so make sure you have help if you are trying DIY garage door replacement.
Due to the high-speed and weight of roller doors, they can become a safety hazard if not properly maintained. We will provide you with the maintenance you need to keep your roller door safe for everyone from pets to ankle biters. If you have a dirty or broken sensor your roller door may not correctly recognises the presence of an object or person while closing. This safety feature is paramount, and our team will help you maintain your sensors, so they are far less likely to breakdown. These sensors are located around 12 to 18 inches above the ground on each side of your garage door. When the sensors do not work many times you cannot even open your roller door.
If it doesn’t, the problem is with your tracks, rollers or springs rather than your opener. Spiring-operated garage doors have cables and pulleys that may wear out over time. Frayed cables and damaged pulleys need to be replaced—a job best done by professionals. Other factors like poor garage door maintenance, loose tracks, or components shorten torsion spring life.
