Garage Door Repair Services

Garage Door Springs

There are three primary types of garage door springs. Torsion springs found on homes built after 1980, extension springs found on one-piece tilt-up doors, and a proprietary torsion spring used on Wayne Dalton Doors called TorqueMaster.

Why Your Next Garage Door Spring Repair Should Be From Five Star Doors

Torsion springs are the most common overhead door repair and the most dangerous for even seasoned experts. Most companies carry only five or six sizes of springs, thus have a 20% margin of error. They compensate by adding additional turns to each spring shortening the springs cycle life. ( Click Here to read about the danger of an unbalanced door). We stock 28 sizes of Service Spring torsion springs, regarded as the top torsion spring manufacturer in North America. We use a scale to weigh your door as paint, door hardware, door trim, and door struts can increase the original weight specifications. When sized and installed correctly, your door should open manually with minimum effort and will help extend the life of your opener and springs.

Garage Door Roller Repair

Many garage door rollers have unsealed bearings that no longer function after years of rolling back and forth in a dirty garage. The rollers condition can be so severe that the barrings within are frozen in place as the garage door cycles. The only thing you have to contemplate when you are going to replace your door rollers is the size of the garage door that you have. For a 7’ steel residential garage door, you will need ten rollers. Five-panel doors or 8’ doors will require 12 rollers.

Four Simple Steps You Can Do To Reduce Future Garage Door Issues

Step 1: With the door closed, check the two vertical tracks inside the garage. Each door track has several mounting brackets that hold each door track to the wall. Jiggle the door track, If the brackets are loose, firmly tighten the mounting bolts at each bracket. 

Examine the door tracks for rust, and any damage that might impede the door rollers from working smoothly. Rust, commonly found on door tracks, especially at the bottom where the tracks touch the water on the floor from rain and snow the vehicles bring in. Steel wool will remove any rust from the vertical track. If the door track is bent, place a short 2″x 4″ piece of wood up against the door track and use a hammer to straighten it out. The door rollers should move freely up and down the door track. If not, replace the section of the door track. Otherwise, it can shorten the life of your opener motor or strip the gears.

A Worn Out Garage Door Roller Can Shorten The Life Of Your Opener

Step 2: Check the door rollers for wear and tear by listening for unusual sounds coming from the rollers as you open and close the door. The smoother the door opens and closes, the less force it takes your opener to make it cycle. All garage door openers have force adjustments. A door in optimal conditions (balanced and no restrictions) requires less force to cycle the door and thus making your door safer to use as the door will reverse with less energy should it hit an obstacle.

 If your door has steel rollers, replace them with nylon, bearings enclosed door rollers. They are a lot quieter and will be less forgiving on wear and tear on your opener.

 

Quarterly Garage Door Maintenance

Step 3: Thoroughly Clean the door tracks and rollers with a household cleaner such as scrubbing bubbles or Murphys oil soap to remove dirt and old grease. 

Step 4: Visually check for loose hinges and cables and tighten as needed. Damaged hinges should be replaced. On one-piece tilt-up doors, check the mounting plates where the extension spring is mounted to be sure the screws are tight and tighten as needed. For overhead or sectional doors, do not try to adjust the torsion springs. The springs are wound under enormous force, and any attempt to fix them can cause serious bodily harm. Pull the red release cord; This disengages the opener from the door. Now open and close the door manually. Does your door open effortlessly, or is it a strain to open and close? Your garage door could be out of balance and may require new springs.

Garage Door Repair Reviews

Garage Door Opener Repair Dearborn MI – 5/5 Stars “As usual a great job. We have used Five Star Doors since purchasing our home 10 years ago and every visit has been positive. You guys are a overhead door specialist, prompt, quick and professional thanks again for the great service.” Rena Harp Dearborn

Garage Door Springs Livonia Mi. – 5/5 Stars – “Five Star Doors was the best rated garage door service near me. I had the springs brake on my garage door. Five Star Doors was everything I could want. they were courteous, punctual, great work and price. Plus, when he said 30 minutes he was right. I was able to stay in my lunch hour even with travel. Already recommended to a coworker looking to replace his garage door.” Greg, Livonia

Garage Door Repair West Bloomfield MI – 5/5 Stars “I contacted Five Star Doors because of the quality of the reviews. Reviewers took the time and effort to write reviews with substance. Shane called me 10 minutes before arrival and arrived at the scheduled time. He quickly diagnosed that the opener gears were shot due to lifting the door with only one spring out of two. Shane provided me an estimate for two torsion springs and a new belt drive opener. No pressure to do the job that day when I told him I wanted two other quotes because it was over $500 for the two springs and opener. The two companies I called for a quote told me they had to see the door and opener in order to provide me a quote so both came that day. The first company was $300 higher and their opener had half the options as what Five Star quoted me. The second company was about $100 higher but tried to charge me a trip fee for coming out to my house. Both companies did a high-pressure sales routine which was very annoying. I had Shane back the next day to install the opener and springs and my garage door works better than ever and I love all the features on the Chamberlain belt drive opener. Thank you, Shane and Five Star Doors.” Christine W. West Bloomfield
