If your garage door opener malfunctions, you may be tempted to repair it yourself. Although homeowners can troubleshoot simple problems, garage door repairs should always be left to professionals. Garage door openers contain numerous mechanisms that operate the door. Additionally, accessories like WiFi-enabled technology and security features include electrical elements and computer chips that need to be handled carefully. Williams Garage Door’s service technicians undergo extensive factory training on state-of-the-art equipment to bring homeowners in Canton, MI precision service and unmatched expertise.
Safety is of utmost concern when making garage door repairs. Each unit has built-in safety features that keep people, pets, and belongings safe. Although the opening speed of a garage door is adjustable, doors must close at a speed of 7 inches per second according to industry safety standards. Doors have optic sensors that detect if an object or person is obstructing the door when it closes. If these eyes become misaligned, the door will not operate. Professionals have the training to inspect and calibrate these and other safety features to ensure that they work properly.
Although all doors operate with a motor, pulleys, cables, and sensors, newer models are more complex. Depending on the features you want, they may include cameras, computer chips that drive the motor, batteries, timers, lighting, and security systems. Homeowners usually do not have the expertise to work on garage door opener equipment. You can damage these sensitive elements or compromise safety.
