Garage Door Repairs
Do you Really Need a New Garage Door?
Time and time again customers call me to say that they have just had a Company out to repair the garage door expecting them to replace the
cables and roller spindles or to fit new garage door springs which would get the door working like new, but to be told that "You need a new garage door"?
So instead of spending less than £100 on the repairs, they are told that they need to spend £1,200 on a new door.
The customer goes onto the stress that even though there is nothing wrong with the garage door, ie, no rust, no dents, and that they could see the
door lasting another 10+ years, but the Garage Dor Repair Company recommends that a new door is fitted.
I have heard selling and scare tactics such as:
If the door is not repalced the cables might break later on and the door may fall on your car?
The garage door parts needed are now obsolete?
The door is past its sell by date?
Please do not fall for the non of the above unless you have had 3 quotes and all are saying that you need a new door.
If in doubt please take some photos of the parts that are broken and send them to me.
I can then give advice on how best to repair the door and also a price for the parts.
If the parts are no longer available I may be able to source an alternative part!
It Makes Sense to Fix Your Garage Door!
In these tough economic times, maintenance and refurbishment makes far more sense than replacement.
Most improvements or refurbishments on houses and gardens end up costing far more than was originally expected.
By trying to do as much of the work yourself within your capabilities is going to help at times like these.
Garage doors for example are items that if working properly are marvellous and can add to a properties aesthetics and value.
We all take for granted the opening and closing of the garage door on a day to day basis, usually with very little though as to any routine maintenance!
So imagine the horror when the cables, rollers spindles, springs or even the garage door handle breaks and you are left unable to
gain access to your car, motorcycle, freezer or garden equipment!
An old garage door can look shabby and make the whole property look less desirable especially when it comes to selling a property.
A well looked after garage door in good decorative order is all part of the external appeal of a house. Routine maintenance
of oiling all moving parts can prolong the life of any garage door, especially if near to the coast. (salt erosion)
The cables and cones or even the garage springs are the main components on garage doors that do tend to need replacing first
usually due to wear and tear or damage, if fitted correctly and with routine maintenance there is no reason the running
parts should not last average 20 years or more!!
The cables and springs can often be easily and cost effectively replaced.
A little about me.
I was born in Whitby, but now live in Filey, when I was 19 I joined the Royal Marine Commandos.
When I left The Royal Marine Commandos after 9 years service. I was not sure what I really wanted to do.
I eventually re-trained as a Plumber and a Locksmith, whilst working for a Plumbing Company (Plumbing Joinery Electrical Company)
they needed someone to take on the increasing demand they were getting to repair garage doors. I volunteered to be trained up
to repair all types of up and over garage doors.
To date I have repaired in excess of 10,000 Garage Doors and also have replaced many Upvc locks.
