Cones & Cables Repair
If your door is wonky like the image above then you need a Cones and Cables repair. This is one of the most common garage door repairs that we do on a daily basis.
Roller Spindles Repair
As well as Cones and Cables you could also need new Roller Spindles. Again, this is a very common garage door repair on older doors. It's not particularly expensive and will allow you to keep your garage door operating for many more years.
Full Gear Conversion
Perhaps you need a full new gear pack. This is generally recommended when your doors gearing is either obsolete or too bad to repair. Providing the door panel is still in good condition this can be a great way to repair your garage door. It's also cheaper than replacing the door, especially if it's a double door - it can save you over £1000 in many cases!
Garage Door Automation
Maybe your garage door operator is on the Fritz? We generally recommend the Hormann brand of garage door openers because we have found them easy to fit, reliable and they have a 5 year Manufacturers warranty. You can learn more about the Hormann range of operators here.
Roller Door Motors
Roller Door Motors can be replaced on most types of Domestic roller shutter. Prices vary depending on the type and size required. We can fit Euro and Somfy motors at very competitive prices. We recommend the Somfy brand as they come with a 5 Year Manufacturers warranty.
Roller Door Controllers
You may need a new control panel for your roller garage door. If this is needed we can replace this quickly, we would generally come the have a look first to ensure the existing controller is actually broken because often they can be simply reset so it's best to check them over first.
Maybe you need a new remote control coding into your system or a new receiver kit fitted. Expect to pay the call out charge plus the retail price for the remote. We can supply and program genuine operator handsets where they are still available (recommended) or when obsolete we can usually install a universal receiver kit.
Perhaps you need additional security for your garage door? We can install dead-locks, defenders and alarms if required.
Handles & Locks
Handles and Locks vary slightly in price depending on the make of door. Most older garage doors in the UK have the lock built in to the handle so the simplest method is to just replace the handle which would come with 2 keys. However many of the newer doors are fitted with locking that allows you to change the lock barrel and this is generally a little bit cheaper depending on the make.
Bolts & Brackets
There are numerous garage door bolts and brackets that can be replaced or repaired. The cost of these will vary depending on the type. As with handles and locks, you will be charged the cost of the item at retail price plus the call out and labour depending on the time taken to carry out the repair. Most repairs take less than 30 minutes, some can take over an hour depending on the state of the door.
When it comes to Springs for garage doors it is best to replace them before they break in accordance with the manufacturers guidelines. When a spring becomes rusty it will begin to fatigue more quickly and cause the door to lose its balance. We always recommend replacing springs on both sides for the same reason.
