Living in Tucson, there are lots of things we take for granted, including our garage doors working properly… that is, until they don’t!
When you need a garage door repaired locally, working with someone who knows both garage doors and Tucson is critical.
Have you ever stopped to consider the fact that garage doors have over 300 moving parts and can weigh well over 400 pounds? Combine that with the fact that they have more exposure to the Arizona heat than any other door in the house, plus the fact that they are often our primary access in and out of our homes, often going up and down many times per day, is it any wonder they eventually break down and need repairs?
With a 400 pound rolling overhead door, making sure it gets fixed right is critical for your family’s safety and the security of your home.
If you’re looking for a company with the ability to quickly diagnose and repair a broken garage door at a fair price, Tucson’s own Discount Door Service can help you.
But beyond just fixing, we can also explain the specific stresses that your Tucson garage door has to deal with, what to look for, and how to properly maintain it so that you can get the longest, most trouble-free use out of it as possible.
In the meantime…
The most common problem people face is broken springs. Typical torsion springs are rated for 10,000 cycles, which works out to be about 5 years on average. If it’s been longer than that since your garage door was serviced and you’re suddenly having problems with your door opening or closing properly, you might need new springs.
The good news is that Discount Door Service offers discounted prices, not cheap products.
When we replace torsion springs for you, the typical lifecycle is 30,000, so you can expect at least 15 years of trouble-free use.
GARAGE DOOR ROLLERS
When your garage door starts making a lot of noise, there’s a good chance the wheels in the track, called rollers, have gone bad. A bad roller may start off as just being noisy, but ignored for long enough it can lead to more damage down the road. Give your ears a break and avoid more serious damage to your garage door – get bad rollers replaced soon.
BENT TRACKS OR OFF TRACK DOORS
It’s not uncommon for the tracks that guide the door rollers to get bent. Whether the car accidentally bumped them or the bend came from “unknown origins”, if you want your garage door to work properly, you’re going to need to have the tracks fixed.
Depending on how badly they’re damaged, it may be possible to repair your existing tracks. In some cases, you’ll need to replace them altogether with new ones. This is particularly true if the damage is to the overhead, horizontal tracks. Since these carry the weight of the door when it’s overhead, you definitely don’t want them to be compromised. Having a knowledgeable and honest garage door repair technician assess the situation for you is a wise choice.
In addition to the common issues mentioned above, we also inspect and service all other aspects of your garage door including checking the cables and pulleys, making sure the door is properly balanced, checking the safety-eyes, and making sure the motor and control panel are all working correctly.
So no matter what kind of garage door problem you might be experiencing in Tucson, we have the skills, knowledge, and ability to help you, just like we’ve helped so many of your neighbors in the Old Pueblo already.
