Garage Door Motor Installation Services
Your garage door gets a bigger workout than most people. Every day it winds up being opened and closed many times during the whole day. A garage door which is motorized is very handy but a lot of things can also go wrong. With garage door openers you don't have to get out of your car especially in very bad weather to open the garage door and you can easily drive your car into the garage. Your routine can get totally disrupted if suddenly your garage door breaks down. There are three kinds of motors: chain drive, screw driver and belt drive.
The most expensive of these is the belt drive. Belt drive motors provide a smooth operation which is not noisy. The chain drive is the most popular because it is also very affordable. The drawback is that it can make some noise. Finally the screw driver is by far the cheapest but it can also move slowly and rather inefficiently and it also has a minimal noise level. The kind of motor you choose all depends on how much money you can afford to spend. It can also depend on the kind of garage door you have and the material it is made out of. Wooden garage doors are often heavier than those made of other materials and these need sturdy motors which can handle the stress and weight of the door. Always consult with our specialist to be sure you are getting the right garage door motor.
Not only is the installation of a proper motor important but also requires regular maintenance. Some of the most typical problems with garage door motors include problems with gears, loose parts and other kind of damage which is visible. If your motor has loose parts it can affect not only the motor but also the track and movement of the garage door itself. The friction and rubbing that a loose bolt can cause can further impair the garage door motor and if a gear is at fault you'll hear a king of grinding or whining noise when the door is being raised or lowered.
As soon as damage to the garage door motor becomes noticeable it is important to get it repaired right away before any irreversible damage can occur. Often it is a lot cheaper to repair the motor instead of replacing it. Take a careful look at your motor to be sure that there are no cracks, signs of burns or frayed wiring. These kinds of damage can occur if there is a power surge or perhaps a hit from lightening or perhaps the wiring got chewed on by rodents. So make sure that the motor only needs some repair and that there is no reason to replace it. You'll save money this way and with regular maintenance you'll have a motor you can rely on our affordable garage door repair services.
