Garage Door Opener Repair vs Replacement
Sometimes when your garage door opener is not functioning properly it can be repaired. One of our trained technicians will first inspect and diagnose the issue, and from there provide the potential solutions. Oftentimes with an older unit or more complex issue, a full replacement of the opener makes more sense. Other times a repair may be the more economical and better solution for you. In either case we always maintain a full inventory of garage door parts on our truck, as well as a selection of new openers. This allows us to take care of your problem the same day we come out, no matter what you decide to do.
Garage door openers, like most other technologies today, are changing rapidly to include features that make your life easier and more secure. You can count on your Precision Door Technician to expertly inform you about the newest garage door openers and accessories available!
When We Recommend Replacement
Federal Regulations (UL 325) were updated in 1993, which made garage door openers safer. If yours was manufactured prior to that date, it is unlikely your house would even pass an inspection with it. So, we recommend to replace in this situation.
Safety Concerns with a Brand
If a manufacturer has been successfully sued for safety defects, we will not repair that model.
No Safety Eyes
If the safety eyes are not present, the opener does not meet UL 325 compliance. Again, your house would be unlikely to pass an inspection if your garage door has no safety eyes.Therefore, we will typically recommend replacement.
Brand No Longer Exists
Parts for these types openers will be unavailable and replacing is usually the only option.
Why Do Garage Door Openers Fail?
Precision always performs a balance test on your door, as recommended by DASMA. The balance test is simple and you can do it yourself by watching the short video below. This test determines whether your door is out of balance or not. If the door is not balanced, it’ll exert an inordinate amount of stress on the opener and strip the garage door opener gear (a new gear is pictured below).
A common cause of an unbalanced garage door is having the wrong size spring(s) on the door. If the door is heavy, the opener sprocket (pictured), can be stripped. Precision will always let you know if this is a potential problem by doing a balance test. Do not hesitate to call us today at any of our locations to learn more about our openers. We will be happy to answer any further questions.
