This will depend on the complexity of the issue and the availability of parts. Some minor repairs may be completed within a few hours, while more extensive repairs or replacements could take a day or two. We’ll give you an estimate of the time required for the repair when we come for the initial service call, so you know what to expect.
Some minor repairs can be done on your own, but often with garage doors, there are moving or heavy parts that can be dangerous to work with so it’s generally best to leave it to the professionals to ensure the repair is done safely and correctly. This also offers you a warranty on the work completed.
We usually recommend having your garage door serviced twice every year to make sure it’s functioning properly and safely – the fall and the spring. This quick and simple maintenance call includes an inspection and tune-up of the springs, cables, rollers, and opener, as well as lubrication and adjustments as needed. Regular maintenance can help prevent bigger and more expensive issues from developing and ultimately extend the lifespan of your garage door.
In many cases, a damaged garage door can be repaired. However, the extent of the damage and the age of the door will determine whether repair or replacement is the more cost-effective option. Our professional team can come take a look at your door and give you advice on the best option for you.
