A garage door weighs somewhere between 150 and a thousand pounds. Even though with its massive weight, it only takes a little bit of effort to open it manually. This is due to the load bearing torsion springs that carries most of its weight. With automation, this ingenious mechanism that allows anyone to lift a thousand pounds of weight over their head is made much more efficient with the addition of a motor and a drive assembly. A perfectly working opener will allow remote opening of a thousand pound door even as far as a hundred feet.
You can open your door remotely even though you're 2 or 3 houses away. This means that as you reach your driveway, your garage is already open and waiting to welcome you home. This level of convenience just makes remote controlled garages so desirable. The thing is there will be times when this automated function won't work. With a little luck, it will just turn out to be the batteries – every so often however, there will be mechanical or electronic issues that can't be fixed by simply replacing the old batteries with new ones. When this happens, you can count on us to provide you with a reliable garage door repair service.
The mechanism behind the easily movable heavy door is fascinating to say the least. You'll see rollers, tracks, cables and springs. These all work together to lift the door up or lower it to the ground. Then, there is the motor and the drive assembly that automates everything. When one or many components get damaged, the entire mechanism may not work properly, requiring the need to call us for the necessary professional service.
