Garage doors and garage door opener systems have a large number of moving parts and are exposed to extreme weather, not to mention the occasional stray basketball or rake. There are many different types of repairs Edward’s Garage Doors ca service‚Ķ


By far the most common garage door repair is replacing the springs. Garage door springs are the most critical part for raising and lowering your garage door. Repairing springs can be particularly dangerous and we strongly recommend using a qualified repair service like Edward’s Garage Doors to complete any repairs.

There are two types of garage door springs. Extension springs are above both sides of the upper tracks. Torsion springs attach to a closed garage door. Springs are tightly wound and when they break can cause serious injury. The springs can become out of balance, making your garage door difficult to open. Springs are attached to brackets, also tension-filled, that can be damaged and need repair.

A torsion spring has anywhere from 10,000 to 30,000 cycles (one open and close) of life. The door’s weight and any additions such as insulation, glass, even coats of paint can shorten a spring’s lifespan.

Garage Door Opener Repair

With mechanical and electronic components, your garage door opener system is susceptible to a wide range of issues. Call Edward’s Garage Doors for any of the following:

  • The remote or wall switch doesn’t work. This may be an issue with the receiver or the remote itself.
  • The wall switch doesn’t work but the remote does. This is often a wiring issue in the wall switch.
  • Grinding sounds. This is frequently a problem with the main drive gear.
  • The trolley carriage moves but the door refuses to open. The trolley carriage may need to be replaced.
  • The door rises but you need to hold down the switch to close it. We’ll make sure the sensors are aligned and functioning.
  • Sound or lights don’t work. Faulty circuit boards or light sockets can be the culprit.

Door Repairs

Whether you have a one-piece door repair or a sectional door repair, the technicians from Edward’s Garage Doors will assess your garage door and make the necessary repairs quickly.

One-piece doors, particularly older wooden doors, are usually pretty heavy. Weight-bearing hardware and springs bear the brunt of the work and are the most common repairs on these types of garage doors. In the winter, these doors can expand, and then contract when the weather warms up, causing warping to the door itself.

Another common issue with these older doors is, when not using an automated door opener system, the door will not remain up. This can be a very serious safety issue for anyone in or near the door opening. The common culprits are springs that need to be repaired or replaced.

Sectional doors offer a real advantage in that a dent or ding can be fixed by removing the affected panel. The skilled staff from Edwards Garage Doors can easily slide out the affected panel or door, conduct repairs or replace it quickly. Damaged windows can often be repaired without removing a panel or door at all.
