The WashingtonPost came out with an article that had some good tips on repairing an old garage door yourself. If you live on Long Island NY and have doors that need repair, then I would first suggest you find a good company who’s business is to service garage doors. They must be a company that is on call 24/7 and has a variety of services such as automatic opener repairs, spring replacement to help the openers, and commercial door installation. You can find companies like these by placing a call and seeing what they offer or by going to somewhere such as Yelp and looing for people who review the company.
Long Island Garage Door Repair
However, if you’re in a residential area in Nassau or Suffolk, such as Huntington New York, and one day you notice you have a small issue with your garage door such as an issue with the motor, or a small part or parts, maybe you don’t want to hire a technician to replace or install these parts for you. This is when I would suggest you do it yourself, using the tips below…
1) Make sure you know exactly which part of the garage door you need to fix. If it’s an issue with the garage door springs, make sure you know which kind of spring it is. There’s torsion springs, EZ-set torsion springs, torquemaster springs, extension springs, one piece, sectional, etc.
2) Make sure you are recording what you are doing. You don’t want to make the issue worse by doing something you might not be familiar with doing. So make sure you make a detailed set of steps you did to try and fix the issue so that if you do need to call a Long Island NY garage door repair company then you won’t be charged as much if you know exactly what the issue is.
