Spring Replacement:

Often, homeowners need to replace garage door springs because a garage door has one torsion spring instead of two. A single spring’s lifespan is shorter than two springs and leads to more damage when they fail.

 

While one long torsion spring is okay for a small, lightweight door, larger or heavier doors need two short, strong torsion springs to balance weight distribution. However, replacing garage door springs is dangerous and can hurt customers and their property if done incorrectly.

 

 

For this reason, it is crucial to leave garage door spring replacement to certified technicians with years of experience replacing all types of garage door springs. In addition to replacing their garage door springs safely and efficiently, Green T services garage door technicians finish customers’ replacement services by lubricating their garage door springs. Lubricating maintains the springs’ working condition and prevents rust development in the future.

Roller Replacement:

Worn down, damaged, and broken garage door rollers can cause a garage door many problems, such as jamming or getting stuck trying to open. The best option for a roller replacement depends upon a client’s budget and the material, weight, and age of their garage door. Green T Services’ garage door experts can help clients find the best garage door roller replacement to fit their needs.

Cables and Drum Replacement:

A broken garage door cable drum can prevent someone’s garage door from opening. It can also lead to dangerous situations like a slamming garage door and snapping cable and torsion springs. It is essential to replace cable drums as soon as they break for the home’s safety and the garage door system’s health.

Track Replacement:

Garage door tracks may need to be replaced or repaired if they have problems, such as being too old, not aligned, broken, bent, or a customer is installing a new garage door. It is also essential to properly care for garage door tracks to prevent them from causing the garage door to jam or come off the track entirely. 

 

This situation can endanger customers and their families. Our garage door experts will assess a client’s situation and repair or replace tracks, screws, and springs. They will also realign the tracks and remove anything that may be clogging them and preventing them from operating correctly.

Panel Replacement:

When one panel of a garage door is damaged, garage door panel replacement is a cost-effective solution to fix the garage door. Please note that if two or more panels have damage on a garage door, the most budget-friendly option will most likely be to replace the entire garage door. Call us to have an expert walk you through the best course of action for your current situation.

Garage Door Parts Repair

If you are looking for garage door parts for repair, we can do that too. Not every garage door needs to be replaced, but repaired. We carry the most common garage parts on us to service calls to help clients repair their garage as soon as possible. However, if the repair requires a unique part, we will need to custom order it.  Our experts at Green T Services can repair many parts of the garage door like:

If a customer’s garage door is not moving, it could be because their garage door spring needs repair. Garage door springs wear out faster than garage doors because of environmental factors and inadequate maintenance. 

 

Rust is one of the most common causes of damage to someone’s garage door springs. Rust build up on springs increases friction and leads to corrosion of garage door springs. Our technicians can come to a customer’s home to lubricate their springs several times a year to prevent this.

Cable Repair

How does one know if their garage door cable needs repair? Tension springs and garage door cables work together to raise and lower a garage door. 

 

Often, if the garage door cable breaks, the garage door will slam down instead of closing smoothly with a controlled motion. When a garage door cable brakes, it acts like a slingshot snapping with brut force and speed, obliterating anything in its path and sending the garage door crashing to the ground. The sudden movement’s impact can damage one’s garage door, but more importantly, it means there is nothing to stop the door from hitting people or pets on its way down. This repair job is dangerous because of the amount of pressure on the cable.

 

 

Consequently, it is essential to hire an expert to make this repair. Our garage door experts follow these five simple steps to minimize damage and ensure safety during the repair process. Firstly, we lock the garage door with clamps designed to prevent the door from crashing down. Secondly, we remove and replace the parts necessary for cable removal. Next, we rethread the new garage door cables. Then, we adjust the tension and adjust the springs. 

 

If our expert notices additional parts that need to be repaired or replaced during this process, they will act accordingly.

Opener Repair
As the name suggests, a garage door opener’s function is to open and close garage doors. When a garage door opener breaks, Green T Services garage door experts check for two possibilities:
1. Disconnect Switch: Is the disconnect switch is enabled? If a garage door opener ever loses power, enabling the disconnect switch allows one to manually open the garage door. Outside of this instance, homeowners should disable the switch at all other times. An easy way to know if this switch is enabled is to listen for the sound of the opener motor working. If someone can hear this sound, but their garage door is not opening, it may be because this switch is enabled.

2. Transmitter Signal: If there is an issue with the customer’s transmitter signal, our expert will need to either replace the batteries for the controller or reset the transmitter’s frequency. A controller is a part used to activate a garage door opener.
The process described above varies between the makes and models of garage door openers. It is vital to have a certified expert versed in your garage door opener’s make and model to repair it properly.

Why You need Professional Garage Door Maintenance

If you are like most people, you use your garage door regularly, if not daily. Repeatedly utilizing this house feature leads to a large amount of wear and tear on a garage door over time. The lifespan of the average garage door is 10,000 cycles. This number can increase or decrease depending upon the usage and the climate where someone lives. 

Customers interested in extending their current garage door’s lifespan need to follow a professional garage door maintenance program. Regularly servicing a garage door increases the amount of time before one needs to go through the hassle of completely replacing it to take care of the problems that have appeared. Allow the certified experts for Green T Services’ garage door maintenance program to make your life easier by quickly and efficiently fixing your garage door.

Our 7 Step Garage Door Maintenance Program
  1. Assess the situation: This step is essential to preventing problems with a client’s garage door later down the line. Our technicians will do a full assessment of the current damage to the garage and any problem areas. After this, we can create an appropriate plan of action to keep a customer’s garage door running smoothly.
  2. Test garage door balance: It’s common for garage doors to be off-balance. A garage door system that is not adequately balanced runs the risk of working too hard and becoming weak. Our garage door experts can return balance to clients’ doors by adjusting the counterweight system.
  3. Inspect rollers: Broken, worn, and warped rollers can prevent garage doors from opening correctly. It is essential to have garage door rollers inspected twice a year and replaced every seven to ten years.
  4. Lubricate moving parts: Slick garage door parts are essential to extending a garage door’s lifespan. Our technicians lubricate the opener chain, overhead springs, and other moving parts as needed.
  5. Check cables: Proper garage door function requires working garage door cables. Our technicians scan garage door cables for fraying and damage and make sure the cables are threaded correctly around the cable drums.
  6. Test auto-safety functions: Auto-safety functions stop garage doors from shutting on a person, animal, or object in their path. Our technicians test the photocell and mechanical mechanisms to make sure these functions are working correctly.
  7. Inspect the tracks: Our garage door experts inspect garage door tracks to ensure they are aligned, and their pathway is clear so that customers’ garage doors can open and close smoothly.

From start to finish the carpet cleaning job was everything and more than what was expected. The quick response and over the phone quote was very specific and task oriented to make sure all information was accurate. The scheduling was effortless, the pre-arrival phone call was accurate, and the technician Daniel L arrived on time with the call. Daniel was highly professional, provided an in depth explanation what was to be done, provided information on the company's other services, and promptly proceeded to very thoroughly clean a large family room, a small staircase runner, a large staircase, two area rugs, and a large porch with older indoor-outdoor carpeting. Daniel was very polite and respectful of the premises, adhering to the current safety protocols at all times. The quality of the work and the results has us considering Green T to deep clean the hardwood floors, something we hadn't thought of doing before. And have Daniel L as the technician!

I feel SO fortunate to have discovered Green T Services and learn the variety of services they provide. Recently, Brian G. (who turned out to be much more than a handyman), successfully completed a couple projects at my home. Brian's knowledge, efficiency, and professionalism, in addition to his friendliness and patience with me watching him and asking lots of questions was fantastic. Even with his attention to detail, he completed the work in the estimated amount of time and cost. I am now making a list of other needed work I will certainly call Green T for assistance. Thanks Brian!

Justin cleaned all our vents, and also cleaned our carpets. He was professional, friendly, and very informative. He told us exactly what he was going to do and how it was going to work, before beginning any work, and afterwards, he was good at telling us what had been better or worse than expected. We very much appreciated the information. He managed our expectations appropriately, letting us know which stains he probably would NOT be able to remove (for example, ones that had been there long enough to set). We would definitely use the company again, and hope to have Justin back if the work was suited to him!

I had Daniel Liscano as my technician today and his service was SUPERB! He was professional, nice, courteous, and went above and beyond to ensure I was a happy customer. I had three different services completed in my house and Daniel did not cut any corners on any of them. He was here all day from 9-5 and he worked very hard alone to clean, sanitize, deodorize, and disinfect my house. From the air duct cleaning, hardwood floor cleaning, and carpet cleaning, Daniel completed an EXCELLENT job! This is something I had been wanting to do for a long time and finally took the time to schedule the appointment and I am really happy I did! I can breath better and my allergies are not bothering me as much already! Thank you Daniel and thank you Green T for delivering on your promise of service and professionalism! It was worth every penny! I will be ordering more services soon!
