With kids in and out for basketball practice, endless strands of Christmas lights and cords, and the dog running in and out of the garage, your garage door sensors can get knocked around pretty easily. The good news is that they’re also easy to put back in place. We found a great step-by-step way to check and see if your garage door won’t close because of a sensor error. First off, your sensors just may need cleaned off, so try to gently remove any dust or dirt first and see if that works. If that doesn’t work, it could be…

What’s That Noise? | Garage Door Repair

By | About Deluxe Door, Emergency Requests, Garage Door Repair, Maintenance, Preventative, Same Day Repair | No Comments

Garage doors can be tricky. Sometimes garage door repairs are obvious, and other times they may be impossible to spot. Some homeowners recently had some issues identifying a weird noise that their garage door was making. Our first recommendation would be to lubricate all the moving parts of the garage door opener. But sometimes, even after all that work, the noises remain. This usually means there’s a structural issue that needs handled, and most likely that structural issue involves the garage door springs. We sound like a broken record when we tell people that their springs need replaced, but it’s…

By | Door Stuck, Emergency Requests, Garage Door Repair, Maintenance, Openers | No Comments

Garage door “force and travel limits” may not ring a bell, but they’re really important to understand when it comes to garage door repair.

Garage Door Repair | Changing Your Weather Stripping

By | DIY, Emergency Requests, Garage Door Repair, Maintenance, Preventative | No Comments

Something homeowners may not think about when it comes to cold weather garage door repair is weather stripping. At the base of your garage door is a long piece of weather stripping that seals your garage from cold weather, rain, and outdoor pests. When weather stripping gets old, it can let in cold air and even water or freezing rain. If water leaks underneath and freezes, your garage door could get stuck to the ground… or the weather stripping could tear off when you raise the door. Worst case scenario, some of the garage door parts could buckle in the…

By | DIY, Door Stuck, Emergency Requests, Maintenance | No Comments

It’s tempting to force our children to eat their veggies at dinner. After all the fighting, sometimes we ask ourselves, “Was it really worth it?” While it’s probably worth it to make our kids eat green stuff, it’s not worth it to force your garage door to do what it doesn’t want to do. This is handy to remember, especially when you put your garage door down, only to find it wearing a crooked smile when you start to drive away. A crooked garage door is a sure sign of either a warped door, a broken spring, or a broken…

By | Bugs!, Emergency Requests, Garage Door Frame, New Install | No Comments

Tis the season for bugs. Lots of ‘em. They’re itching to find warmth and some new sources of food. One of these little insects in particular just caused some serious damage in Worthington. A Worthington family had to replace the entire frame of their garage and their garage door because of a dreaded termite invasion.
