Should I repair or replace my garage door?

This is one of the most popular questions. But unfortunately it will be unprofessional to try and answer it in general, and without inspecting the garage door at your location. We always like to say that every garage door is unique, and what worked for one door may not work for another.

Do you offer maintenance and tune up?

We offer same day tune up for all kinds of overhead doors and gates. We recommend to perform the maintenance every 6 months, to ensure a perfectly working garage door. A good maintenance should include some tune up for the garage door opener and the springs, and of course safety check.

What is the problem with my garage door?

The million dollar question. The problem is that there is no one answer to that question, and every door may have a different problem, or few problems at the same time. But most times the answer is: You have been ignoring the need for maintenance.
Many times people tell us that they have a problem with one part, when it is actually a different problem. For example: If you own an automated garage door, and there is a problem with the door’s mechanism, it is affecting the opener in a way that make it seem like there is something wrong with the opener itself. But, when we arrive to the location and inspect the garage door, we find that the reason that the opener couldn’t lift the door is because there is a problem such as a broken spring or a snapped cable.

Can I repair my garage door by myself?

The simple answer will be – Yes you can repair the garage door by yourself. But, and here come an important but, does it worth it for you? We would like to say few words about that:
A do it yourself garage door repair (DIY), and it does not matter if it is a garage door repairs in Huntington NY, or anywhere else can be dangerous. If you decided to perform the repair by yourself, do not ignore the safety, and make sure that you understand exactly what you are doing:
Use the right part. There is no “look the same” and “almost fit”. There is a right part and a wrong part. There is one right spring for your overhead door, and using the wrong spring is dangerous.
Use the right tools. There are tools which were created to repair garage doors, one of them is the torsion sticks. The only right and safe way to adjust a torsion spring is with torsion springs. Any other way will not work.
Do not guess. There is no place for maybe or trying. Overhead garage door can weight hundreds of pounds, and misuse of it is dangerous.

Where can I read reviews about your service?

This is a question that we always answer with a smile. You can find reviews of our services on Yelp or on Google+.

Which overhead door is the best for me?

There are many garage doors in the market, and each one should be able to find the right overhead door that will answer their needs. We can install all kinds of garage doors, but we will write here what we always say: Invest in high quality garage door, and in return get a garage door that will last for many years, and that its quality you will feel every time you will use it. We recommend an insulated door, whether it is a detached or attached garage.

Do I need a garage door lock?

If you own an automated garage door, which is operated with an electric opener, you do not to add a lock. The opener itself will be the lock so only the people who can operate the motor will be able to get into your garage. There is a nice Video about garage door lock, click here to watch it.

What is the best garage door opener?

There are many garage door motors manufactures, each one will claim to make the best openers. Our preferred opener manufacture is Lift Master, which create high quality and reliable openers.

What kind of opener do I need?

The main overhead door opener types we are working with are the chain drive and the belt drive openers. Both of them are strong and reliable, and the only difference between them is the noise. While the operating of a chain drive motor involve the noise of a metal chain moving along the rail, this noise does not exist with the belt drive opener, since it worked with a rubber belt instead of the iron chain.
