Garage Door Repair Services

Broken garage doors can be more than just a minor nuisance. They can make you late for work if you can’t get your car out of the garage. They can make your kids miss sports practices or rehearsals. Broken garage doors can even make your home more vulnerable to burglars. When you’re in need of fast, affordable garage door repair services, you can put your trust in Aquarius Door. Our skilled technicians respond quickly to residential and commercial service requests throughout North Jersey and Westchester County, NY. Our fully licensed, bonded, and insured company routinely handles the following common garage door repairs:

  • Misaligned track
  • Broken springs or cables
  • Uneven door movement or shimmying
  • Door opener malfunction

Garage Door Springs

Broken springs are among the most common reasons for garage door repairs. There are two main types of springs on garage doors:

  • Torsion springs: Located directly above the garage door
  • Extension springs: Located above the garage door track on both sides

Extension springs work by supporting the door with a counterbalancing force. The springs extend to allow the proper movement of the door. Torsion springs wind and unwind to store and release mechanical energy. They help the garage door open as they unwind. Over time, torsion and extension springs can become worn out and weakened. Eventually, the springs can break. Garage door springs have an average lifespan of five to seven years, but they may break sooner than this if they are rusted or subjected to cold weather, or if they handle very heavy doors. Fixing broken garage door springs can be dangerous, which is why Aquarius Door strongly cautions homeowners not to try a DIY approach. Instead, let our trained technicians take the proper safety precautions to remove the broken springs and install structurally sound, new springs.

Garage Door Repairs

Aquarius Door specializes in garage door repairs for both one-piece and sectional doors.

  • One-piece door: A single panel that swings up on a hinge to open.
  • Sectional door: Several panels that move on hinges to allow the door to roll up on the tracks.

Our technicians can repair all sorts of problems with garage doors, including the following:

  • Sagging garage doors: Installing or tightening tension rods can straighten out a sagging door.
  • Unlockable garage doors: The horizontal bars that lock the door may shift out of alignment. We can reposition them and lubricate the lock mechanism.
  • Damaged sectional panel: If one panel of your sectional door is too damaged to fix, we can fit a replacement.
  • Stubborn garage door: If your garage door no longer moves smoothly, we can perform a careful inspection. It might need new hinges or springs, or the track might need to be repositioned.

Garage Door Opener Repairs

The garage door opener is crucial for the door’s proper functioning. It allows you to easily open and close the door at the touch of a button, taking the hassle out of manual lifting. Aquarius Door can fix any problem with garage door openers, including the following:

  • Seasonal malfunctions: Cold weather can affect how well your garage door opener works. We can adjust the pressure setting so that it works well in every season.
  • Garage door reversal: If the door reverses and lifts immediately after it contacts the ground, we can fix this problem by adjusting the close limit switch.
  • Wall switch malfunction: If your remote works as intended, but the wall switch controls do not, we may need to replace the wall switch wires. Sometimes, it is necessary to replace the entire wall switch.
