Garage Door Opener Repair:

One of the most common issues, when your garage door opener stops operating, is the alignment of the photo eyes. Other issues include disruption of the power source and remote/battery malfunction. Worn gears in the operator and on the chain or belt rail is another common issue. Sometimes fixing it is as simple as adjusting the limit settings or the sensitivity of the opener.

Other fixes may involve the opener’s circuit board, the motor, drive belts or limit switches. Broken door springs or cables can make the door too heavy for the operator to lift. A door off track or worn rollers can also make it difficult for the operator to pull the door open. Some openers just need a simple adjustment while other openers may require new parts or a total replacement. No matter the issue, Hutchins service technicians are trained to identify the problem and address all your repair needs.

Garage Door Roller Replacement:

Rollers play a very important role in the garage door system. Many homes today have garage doors that struggle to go up and down due to worn out rollers and lack of maintenance. Poorly running garage door rollers can cause problems ranging from a door off track to prematurely wearing outdrive gears, sprockets, and belts on your garage door opener. This usually leads to getting stuck in the garage at the worst possible time.

Many entry-level and contractor garage door rollers are made of plastic and a metal stem with no ball bearings. You can expect these rollers to last no more than 2 to 3 years before they need to be replaced. If you start to hear your rollers make a screeching or clicking sound, then it is time for an upgrade. Nylon ball bearing rollers are the way to go. At Hutchins Garage Doors the majority of roller replacement is done with super quiet nylon ball bearing closed end rollers.

A good rule of thumb is to have your rollers replaced when you have your springs replaced. If your rollers have been replaced recently, then you should be fine. If you are purchasing a new garage door from Hutchins Garage Doors, you are getting the super quiet nylon long lasting rollers good for 10,000 + cycles. The cost difference is minimal during the ordering process, but it will have a big impact on the overall performance of your garage door and opener. Get your yearly maintenance done by a Hutchins pro and have your rollers updated to avoid bigger issues down the road.

Bent or Misaligned Door Tracks:

Is your door swaying back and forth when in motion? Is it jerking, bouncing and generally noisy when moving? You may have bent or misaligned garage door tracks. Ignoring the warning signs will lead to further damage and cause more costly repairs. It can happen over time that the garage door track becomes misaligned or bent accidentally. Hutchins can realign your track or replace it if needed.

Garage Door Panel Replacement:

Garage doors are susceptible to the natural weather elements and over time they will suffer from wear and tear. Occasionally you may need panel replacement when the door is accidentally hit or bent from impact. Cosmetics would be the main reason why someone would request a replacement, but safety and door integrity may be more important. If a door panel is cracked it will eventually break. You will also want to replace panels like for like to ensure the proper fit in between the sections and for the safety of the door.

Garage Door Cable Repair:

The door cables carry the weight of the door and are under a lot of pressure. Cables do experience wear and tear just like all the other working parts of your garage door. Over time, the cables may stretch a bit, weaken, become frayed and snap. Sometimes cables have been completely unwound from the cable drums and will need to be reconnected. When cables break or come off the drums, you will notice that your door becomes stuck or cocked to one side. If this is the case, do not attempt to repair unless you know what you are doing as these cables are under a lot of pressure. Most of the time, frayed and broken door cables can cause your garage door to become inoperable all together. For safety reasons, you should have a professional technician from Hutchins Garage Doors take care of your cable replacement needs.

Garage Door Spring Replacement:

Over time, the springs in your garage door system will wear down and break. The function of springs is to balance the door, allowing it to raise and lower. Most Hutchins springs last approximately 10,000 cycles. However, over time, they weaken and will eventually break. When your garage door malfunctions and is too heavy to lift, the springs are the part you’ll most often need to have replaced.

Why You Should Call A Pro To Fix Your Garage Door Springs

Garage door springs are under a lot of tension, which means repairing or replacing them puts you and your fingers in danger. Consider contacting a Hutchins pro when your garage door springs need repair. First, our pro will gauge your existing springs or weigh the door in order to make sure that the replacement springs are sized correctly. If a spring is broken, it will no longer have tension. However, if you have more than one spring, the other will be wound tightly. Next, the technician will carefully unwind the existing springs to release the tension. They will then disassemble the system in order to install new springs. After reassembly, the new springs are tightened with the proper tools to ensure safety. The door is then balanced, tightened down, and lubed thoroughly.

Unless your springs just need minor attention (such as lubrication), give us a call at Hutchins! We’ll get a pro out to you who can perform your spring repair.
