You should not open your garage door if its springs are broken. It can be dangerous and you should call us for a free in house consultation for your repair.

Yes, it is possible and most of the electric door openers have a manual release cord or lever that helps in disconnecting the drive mechanism and you can open the garage door manually. Remember that you have to be inside the garage to do this.

This is likely to be the case of safety sensors of the opener which are mounted near the floor on each side of the garage doorway. In order to get the door closed the sensors must be clear of obstructions and should be pointed towards each other. It is better to call our team and schedule the service and not try to solve this issue manually or close the garage door manually if you are not sure.

No, they have a tendency to fade or lose tension quickly. We do not trust them on our customer’s doors from what we have seen from them. (Source: damsa article: “Historically, some manufacturers have had difficulty with the galvanizing process, since the process can negatively affect the temper and durability of the wire.”)

A true high cycle spring cost substantially more than a regular spring and supposed to deliver 50K using circle versus the original manufacture’s 10K use.

You do not HAVE to change both, but you will wish you had when the other spring breaks a month or so later. If both of your springs where originally installed on the same time we recommend to change them both once one is failing, this will create an even tension on both sides of the door. 

A garage door tune up involves an inspection and any modifications needed to prolong your garage door’s life span and smooth operation. Our Garage Door technicians will:

  • Inspect the springs.
  • Check cables.
  • Investigate the garage door opener.
  • Lubricate components as needed.
  • Replace any parts that may be in the process of failing.

A garage door tune up will keep any future expensive repairs at bay, and should be regularly performed.

If your garage door appears to be working with no sign of any problems, then it is recommended to have a tune up or standard garage door service performed once a year. However, if you hear a grinding sound when the door opens or closes, or you notice any other issues, call Everlast Garage Doors immediately so we can come out and inspect your door.

Don’t worry, you don’t have a ghost in your garage! A short in the circuit board will cause a garage door to open and close by itself. Sometimes shorts in the wall button, wired keypad, or other electric failures could cause a garage door to move up and down. Even a broken remote or drained batteries could cause this. Let Everlast Garage Doors uncover the problem and fix it in a flash!

Most garage door openers last between 10 to 15 years. Keep in mind that if you let Everlast Garage Doors perform a yearly maintenance that life span can go beyond the 15-year mark. If your garage door makes noises when it opens and closes you likely have a problem that is diminishing the door life span. These problems could be:

  • Broken springs.
  • Poor balancing.
  • Worn hinges.

Let our technicians inspect your garage door and triage any problem that might be threatening the garage door health!
