Automatic doors require not only the installation of a heavy door, but the motor and cables as well. Automatic doors are much more common now because of their convenience, but in a case such as the heavy wood door, they are a necessity. A strong motor is required to pull up a heavy door. However, automatic doors are not without their faults -- they quickly become a manual door when the power goes out.
The company is fantastic! Great customer service, quick and courteous response, knowledgeable repairman, quickly repaired, spent time confirming operability of door and opener and the price was more than reasonable. I recommend them heartily and would not use any other company than theirs for future issues, if any. Plus a 1 year warranty on service performed. they can't be beat as far as I am concerned. Ron K.
When I called to schedule the repair service, I was transferrd 5 times and spoke with 6 service reps. Each rep was very confused by my request to get my garage door repaired. One rep actually told me that Sears doesn't repair garage doors. I had to tell her that Sears installed the door. When I finally found a rep who could schedule my service, it took one week for the appointment.
Squealing, screeching, or grinding noises from your garage door are usually indicative of a lack of lubricant or an accumulation of dirt or debris in the tracks. When removing debris, do not use harsh chemicals to clean the tracks. Once the track is clean, coat it with lubricant designed especially for garage doors, if possible. If you do not have access to this special type of lubricant, you can use WD-40 on the tracks and hardware.
Most good companies carry different quality parts. If someone can't afford to fix there door with the parts that will last long term, they will use standard parts that the door comes with. These can fail within 5 years. Better question is, how do you own a house, but can't afford $963 repair. A new HVAC can cost $10K. I wouldn't expect anyone to come to my house for less than $200. If I wasn't paying over $500 I would be questioning the quality of the repair and the credentials of the technician.
2. The safety sensors may need adjustment or realignment. Near the bottom of the door track on both sides are electronic eyes that require a clear line of view between them. If the sightlines are clear between the eyes, the door will close smoothly all the way to the floor. However, if anything is blocking the sightline, or if the brackets holding the electronic eyes are out of alignment, the door will fail to descend all the way. In most cases, the door will stop or reverse, and lights will flash to tell you there is a problem.
Most garage doors have two springs installed, when one breaks it's safe to say the second spring's life expectancy has just about expired. In order to save you from future inconvenience, unsafe garage door practices, and damaging your garage door opener, Precision will usually recommend to replace both springs. If you've had the same tires on your car for a while and one blows out while you're driving, wouldn't you replace them both? It's extremely important to properly maintain equipment such as garage doors and automobiles.
You can choose from three basic types of steel door: (1) steel only; (2) steel with insulation on the inside; and (3) steel on both sides with 1-3/8 to 2 in. of insulation. Other features that add to the cost are thicker insulation and windows, especially insulated windows. The do-it-yourself tensioning systems also add a little to the door’s cost. Be sure to specify exactly what you want.
John, the service tech, was able to show up 2 hours ahead of schedule which worked out great. He knew the problem and readily offered a fix to repair the contractor grade spring and roll bar to a heavier duty version. Repair was done in a short period time and I could not be happier with the end result. He was friendly and knowledgeable and cared about getting it done right. Very pleased with the work and warranty.
Door styles - in addition to the styles just mentioned, it is important to also consider additional features such as windows across the top of the door to provide light inside of the garage, the use of steel or wood frames to give decorative doors added security and stability, and insulation which can reduce energy costs in the attached garage by an impressive 15 to 20%; and
