Common Garage Door Opener Problems
The average garage door opener lasts between 10 and 15 years. However, if you do not keep up with regular maintenance of your garage door opener, it will likely break before the 10-year mark. If your garage door has been acting up lately, your garage door opener is probably the culprit.
Here are some of the most common problems we deal with on a daily basis:
- Garage door doesn’t close all the way
- Garage door stops mid-opening
- Remote doesn’t work
- Wall switch doesn’t work
- The chain or belt is sagging
These problems are most usually caused by electrical errors, garage door sensor misalignment, or garage door tracks that aren’t in the right position. These are very technical issues that require the proper training to fix. When it comes to complicated garage door opener repair, it’s best to get the help of a professional.
Garage Door Opener Repair
In many cases, a malfunctioning door can be solved by a simple garage door opener repair. However, without an untrained eye, it’s hard to tell what is severely problematic from what isn’t. When you call a technician from Hero Garage Doors to service your problem, they can do a full diagnostic to determine its scope as well as any other ancillary issues the main problem could cause down the line.
We will absolutely not push a replacement or garage door opener installation on you if it’s unnecessary. That’s why we carry all the parts we need to do any quick repairs. There are only a few cases in which we may suggest a garage door opener replacement. Here are two examples:
- The current state of your opener is a hazard
- The brand that’s installed no longer exists
Whether it’s for repair or maintenance, our inspections are the same. When we’re done, we’ll know for certain if your garage is up to all the current safety standards. And if it isn’t, we know how to get it there.
We can lubricate the gears and check the balance of the door, and we can tighten or replace anything that’s loose or damaged. If that’s still not enough, we can go over with you your options for replacement.
Garage Door Opener Installation
When it comes to a garage door opener installation, there are three models we can work with: Belt, chain, and speciality openers. To decide what model is best for installation in your garage will depend on your individual needs and price range.
If your garage is near a commonly used room, like a bedroom or office, you want to go for a belt drive opener. They’re the most quiet in their operation and require little maintenance. Though they cost a bit more than other models, belt drive openers come with a lifetime warranty.
A chain drive opener is popular for its price tag and eco-efficiency. It comes with a higher tensile strength than other models that makes it a perfect fit for heavy garage doors. Both chain and belt drive openers share similar traits, like wifi compatibility. In addition, chain drive openers cost less, but they’re typically louder.
Our specialty models are made to run smoothly and quietly. You can be creative with your space when you opt for specialty garage door openers. Openers of this model run through a one-piece rail design that requires little lubrication. They can even be mounted on the wall, should you prefer that. Both the rail design and the wall design specialty openers come with a 200-watt light that’ll illuminate your space whenever you need it.

Steel Garage Door Repair
Garage doors are big and heavy, making them one of the most dangerous parts of your home—and a bad candidate for a DIY project—when they are not functioning properly. On average, garage doors are a home’s most frequently used entrance. If that’s the case for your home, you want to ensure your garage door is moving smoothly and safely.
If your garage door is moving slowly, seems to get “stuck” in certain places, lands lopsided at the end of its track, or if the rollers come off the tracks at any point during opening or closing, give Hero Garage Doors a call. We also advise you to stop using your door in the meantime to prevent any further damage.
Hero Garage Doors will be there quickly with a fully stocked truck, ready to fix your door right away.
Garage Door Lubrication
Your garage door should open and close smoothly and effortlessly. That’s why proper garage door lubrication is essential. Friction not only wears down the various pieces of hardware on your garage door, it also often leads to additional pressure on your door’s springs and load-bearing mechanisms. This can lead to a shorter lifespan for your garage door and can even cause the door to slip off the tracks, placing your family or anyone using the door in a potentially unsafe situation.
Hero Garage Doors has the knowledge, skills, and equipment to ensure your garage door is properly lubricated. We also pay special attention to the areas of your garage door that most often experience wear and tear in order to catch issues early. That way, you won’t need to replace your garage door prematurely due to preventable damage.
Garage Door Maintenance
You and your family members use the garage door several times a day to get in and out of the house. This is why it is so important that your door remains well maintained and prepared to handle that amount of work on a daily basis. Additionally, with proper maintenance checks, you can catch minor problems and fix them easily before they turn into expensive, permanent damages.
Hero Garage Doors can help you keep your garage door prepared for safe and regular operation through our maintenance and repair services. We’ll perform a multi-point safety check and let you know if/where we see any potential weak spots in your door. We won’t go through with any repairs until you understand the issue and know how much that particular replacement or repair will cost.
