Garage Door Spring Repair Douglaston NY

Extension Springs Douglaston  NY Garage Door

The extension spring looks like the old fashion box spring you see in mattresses. They are located at the sides of the door and are mounted on the  swing arms. They have a hook on each end and when purchased, they will be in  their compressed state. Because they have no protection factors when stretched,  it is the more dangerous of the two springs. It is also more inexpensive  compared to the torsion spring.

Its main difference from torsion springs is that the operation of the  extension spring is based on distance; the further it is extended, the more  force is applied on the spring. It can last from 5,000 to 10,000 lifts.

When your garage door has to be raised too high to support your garage door opener, you do not have to buy an entirely new electric opener. You can save money by simply purchasing garage door extension spring replacements and cables. The extension cables allow you to raise the garage door to heights of 7 feet or 8 feet, or you can buy full extension springs for garage doors that range in height from 78 in. to 84 in. The lightest of these springs supports balance weights of 50 lbs., while the strongest of them supports balance weights of 250 lbs.

In addition to cables and springs, you can also purchase any supporting hardware that may be required. Cable pulley wheels are very inexpensive, and if you don’t know how heavy your garage door is, you may need a counter balance lever arm to weigh it.

Torsion Springs Douglaston NY Garage Door

Torsion or Torque springs are twisting steel which retains the force in the  twist of the internal bar. If you think of the old fashioned mouse trap you have  the idea. The power is created by twisting the mouse trap under pressure. The  torsion spring's force is proportional to how the torque in the twist.   This is usually an enclosed unit and thus safer than the loose spring. Torsion  springs are located at the upper section of the door and are usually mounted on  the door header. This kind of spring will be the far stronger of the two and can  lift a weight up to 500 lbs. It has a lifespan of approximate 20,000 lifts.

Any homeowners will at some point experience broken garage door torsion springs that must be replaced. The average torsion spring lasts for about 10,000 cycles of opening and closing the garage door. This is because of the amount of pressure that is put on these springs on a regular basis. If you are in need of a garage door torsion spring replacement please contact us to make an appointment and get professional service and affordable price.

Features The best garage door openers have plenty of horsepower so they can easily handle even heavy doors. We loved the openers that are forward-looking, designed to integrate seamlessly with home automation systems. The finest garage door openers also offer an alternate power source(Battery backup) so you are never stuck with an inoperable door you experience an outage. We like garage door openers that are designed to keep noise at a minimum, too.

Electric Garage Openers Great Neck NY | Syosset NY

Most garage doors are heavy enough to cause serious injury and even death, so safety features on garage door openers are very important. Security features also are valuable considering the fact that the garage door not only secures vehicles and anything else stored in a garage, but also offers indirect access to your home in most layouts. We looked for things like automatic lights, reverse-opening capabilities (Saftey eyes) and strong locking mechanisms on all garage door openers in our lineup.

LiftMaster Electric  opener model 8550  make you rethink what’s possible in a Garage Door Opener With a full-suite of innovative features including smartphone control, Battery Backup and advanced security features, these openers will give you peace of mind that your garage is always safe and secure

Ease of Use

You might not think it could get easier than pushing a big button to open a door, but some garage door openers make things even easier by offering key-less entry(Keypad) and multiple remotes. We also looked at features that make ownership easier from the very first day, allowing you to easily install and maintain the system yourself.

Drive Mechanism

H&O Garage Door Syosset  NY offers two different drive mechanisms to accommodate your home and budget. If you're looking for a smooth and quiet opener for a garage door with rooms located above the garage or attached to the garage, the belt drive is going to be the best for you. You can also choose a chain drive opener, which is perfect for garages that are unattached to the home.

Help & Support

Good customer service is important for any product. It is especially important for the class of garage door openers we considered. We looked primarily at products designed to be installed by a professional door company, so it's vital the product you choose offers its own layer of customer support and guarantees. Even if you are fairly handy you are sure to have questions at some point along the way. We offer wonderful warranties.

Garage door service Brooklyn NY

Queens - Brooklyn - Long Island - Bronx - New Jersey 

Problem #1: Malfunctioning Photo-Eyes

A common reason for a garage door not closing can be a malfunctioning photo-eye. Photo eyes are there to keep the garage door from closing if an object passes through the infrared beams. Photo-eyes need to be lined up correctly, if the alignment is thrown off it may cause your garage door to not close. Also, if the lens on one or both of the photo eyes is dirty with debris, this can also cause your garage door to not operate. With both of these scenarios, your photo-eyes system assumes that there is an obstruction in the door. If your photo eye is flashing that means an obstruction is in the path of the door. Remove the debris and adjust the photo-eye until the indicator light is no longer flashing. Your door should now properly operate. If you need any assistant you can call us H&O Garage Door Repair at 718-7106468.

 

Problem #2: Broken Spring 

 

Another common reason for your garage door not working is a broken spring. A spring provides tension to help your garage door opener lift your garage door. This is an issue you can usually diagnose fairly easily. Springs are typically directly above the garage door near the wall. It’s important to note that if you have two springs on your garage door, you’ll most likely need to have both springs replaced.​

Note: Please do not attempt to repair or replace a spring on your own, call a professional company​. Call Us H&O Garage Door Repair  at 718-7106468.

 

Problem #3: Malfunctioning Remote Control

If you’ve discovered that there’s no issue with your photo-eyes or garage door spring, another thing to check is your remote control to your garage door opener. If you find that it’s only one garage door remote that doesn’t work correctly, your remote may just need a new battery. If you replace the battery in the remote and it still doesn’t work, give a reputable garage door company a call to diagnose the problem.  Call Us H&O Garage Door Repair at 718-7106468.

Problem #4: Noisy Garage Door

Noisy doors are very common and there can be a couple of reasons why your garage door is noisy. This issue can sometimes be fixed with a manufacturer recommended lubricant. Rollers and springs should be lubricated regularly to keep these parts running smoothly for many years. If this isn’t the issue then contact us H&O Garage Door at 718-7106468 to assist you with diagnosing the issue as you may need a replacement part for your garage door system with a fair prices and professional technicians.

Garage Doors Safety Tips, Roslyn NY | Long Island

Your garage door is the largest entry door to your home and for many families today it is the primary entrance. Did you know that your garage door weighs several hundred pounds and has many moving parts? The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission reports that each year since 1990 an average of 20,000 people visit the emergency room each year for garage door related injuries. Understanding garage safety can help protect you and your family. Below you will find a list of safety rules you can discuss with your family and even post in your garage to help everyone remember.Keep your garage

space neat and organized. A neat and organized garage can prevent tripping or falling. The concrete garage floor can be very painful and damaging in a fall.

Clearly mark all poisons and flammables and place out of a child’s reach. Children can be very curious, make sure that all paints, pesticides, oils, gas, etc., are clearly marked and in a place where they cannot be reached by a child or spilled by accident.Make sure tools and ladders are properly stowed

. A ladder should never be left in an upright position. Fold the ladder and hang or place along the side wall of your garage so that it won’t fall on anyone, children will not be enticed to climb on it, and it will not cause someone to fall. Also, make sure all sharp and pointed objects are carefully secured out of reach.

A garage door is not a toy. While many children find it fun to run beneath the door while in motion, this is very unsafe and children can easily become trapped under the door. Let your family know that they must keep a clear distance from the garage door while it is in motion.Check your garage door for the safety “electric eyes” or sensors. If your garage door is older, or if it has not been properly maintained or installed, you may not have functional safety sensors on your garage door. These are located near the bottom, left and right sides, of the garage door and should be approximately 4-6 inches from the garage floor.The safety sensors should be properly connected and aligned.

Call H&O Garage Door Services for garage door maintenance, tune-ups, and spring replacement. Garage Doors that are not properly maintained can be not only a nuisance but also a safety hazard. The torsion springs (located at the top center of the garage door) are under extreme pressure and can cause severe injury if they should snap. A broken spring can also cause the sudden fall of a garage door.

If your garage door spring breaks call a trained H&O Garage Door Services for spring replacement.

Keep garage door opener remotes and transmitters out of children’s reach. Make sure that no one is near, or touching, the garage door while it is in motion and never put your door down when not in site without additional safety features or precautions. Aside from the size and weight of the garage door crushing a person, there are also many hinges and folds in a garage door, of which hands and fingers are often the subject of injuries.
