Garage Door Opener Repair
On average, a garage door opener can last roughly 10-15 years. If your garage door opener isn’t working, we’ll first inspect your current garage door opener to see if we can repair it. If we can repair your garage door opener, we’ll get it taken care of quickly. If we can’t repair it, we’ll let you know and talk about your other options.
At every service call, we also conduct a 25-point safety inspection to ensure that everything is covered in one call. That way if another problem is developing, you won’t have to call us back out later, saving you time and money.
First, get in touch with a professionally trained Same Day Garage Door Technician for a free consultation.
Once our technician has inspected your garage door and diagnosed the problem, they’ll write up a proposal. We are proud to provide the most accurate estimates in the industry.
Often, repairs can be made on the same day. When they can’t be, our 7-day-a-week services allow us to offer repairs and installations that fit your busy schedule.

Types of Garage Door Openers
Chain-Drive Garage Door Openers
Chain-drive garage door openers use a metal chain to lift and lower the garage door for opening and closing.
This gives these garage door openers the strength to open heavier doors and ensures that they won’t slip. Chain-drive garage door openers are also more affordable than other options and can last a long time with proper maintenance.
On the other hand, they do require more maintenance to stay in top form. They’re also noisier than other garage door openers, so they’re not suggested for garages next to bedrooms, since they can wake people up. Chain-drive garage door openers also don’t operate as smoothly as other options, so the garage door can shake while opening and closing.
Belt-Drive Garage Door Openers
Belt-drive garage door openers are similar to chain-drive garage door openers, but use a belt instead of a chain. Like chain-drive garage door openers, belt-drive garage door openers are very durable, but they don’t require as much maintenance since they don’t need lubrication. Furthermore, they create very little noise while opening and closing. The trade-off is that belt-drive garage door openers are costlier than chain-drive garage door openers.
Other Types of Garage Door Openers
Screw-drive garage door openers
Screw-drive garage door openers operate differently, using a motor that rotates a steel rod. The steel rod then moves a trolley, which is used to open the garage door. Since these garage door openers have no chain or belt to replace, they’re highly durable and very long-lasting. However, they can be very noisy if not regularly serviced and are also more expensive than other types of openers.
Jackshaft garage door openers
Jackshaft garage door openers are a little unusual in that they’re installed on the side of the garage door rather than on the ceiling. These garage door openers connect to the garage door’s torsion bar, allowing them to raise and lower the garage door.
Having the opener positioned on the side can save space, but it can also be a problem if you have limited space on the side of your garage. If a jackshaft garage door opener is an option for you, they do provide a more modern, minimalist look. They’re also the only option available for high lift doors. They do tend to be more expensive than other opener options, though.
