Time takes its toll on us all. It wears out everything from our clothes to our bodies, and it certainly wears out the many pieces of equipment we rely on in our homes. From lawn mowers to refrigerators to air conditioners to garage doors—they all have parts that work hard and get worn out by use and years. And, as property owners, when this happens we either must fix or replace whatever is wearing thin.
When it comes to garage door maintenance, many homeowners would rather overhaul their current garage doors than replace them altogether. It’s certainly a much simpler idea, especially if you are satisfied with the current look of your property. At JV Garage Door, LLC, we understand that—and we can help. By offering quality, efficient garage door overhaul services, we can get your garage door working like new again with just a few simple replacements.
Every time you raise and lower your garage door, a number of pieces work together to perform the desired function. Springs, cables, pullies and rollers are set into action in order to lift the door along a specific track and lower it the same way. When we perform a garage door overhaul, we address each of these pieces and replace them with new parts that are unweathered by time.
One of the first things we do is replace the springs, which generally wear out within 10 years. After that amount of time, they start to become a safety hazard and pose a threat to you, your family and your property. They need to be replaced by new springs that haven’t been overstretched and overworked so that they can hold the proper amount of tension required.
Once the springs are finished, we also replace your system’s rollers, which allow your doors to glide smoothly up and down the track. When rollers wear out, they strain the springs and put the rest of the system at risk. By replacing them, the environment becomes safer, the noise level is reduced and the amount of stress on your opener is lessened.
Cables also play an important part in your garage door function. For this reason, we swap out frayed or worn cables with new, strong ones that are able to withstand the weight of the door.
Finally, we also install new pulleys, which can cause door failure if the old ones begin to scrape against the track angle or if the rivets fail, and replace the system’s bearing plates. And, of course, we never leave without making sure the system works properly and operates safely to ensure your satisfaction.
