Our Garage Door Repair Services

Broken garage door springs are the most common problem experienced by homeowners today.  The obvious telltale sign that a garage door spring has broken is the definite separation in the coils.  Springs break due to fatigue, so its not a matter of IF they will break but a matter of WHEN they will break. Most garage door springs are rated at 10,000 open-close cycles and will typically last anywhere from 5 to 8 years, depending on how often you open and close your door.   American Empire Garage Door prides itself in installing the highest quality galvanized torsion springs backed by a 3 year warranty.  Ask for details when you call.

The second most common garage door problem is when one of the cables jumps off a drum, causing the door to come down crooked and bind on the way down. This is usually caused by weakened springs, as springs do loose their tension over time.  The garage door opener is pulling the door farther up than the weakened springs would if the opener was not connected.  This results in slack being created and the cable jumps off the drum.  In this case, the springs should be replaced and the cables should be inspected.  The cables carry the full weight of the door and should be replaced if they show any signs of fraying.  A frayed or worn cable can break and cause the door to slam down. The door can come out of the tracks causing damage to people and property.  Please call 949-498-8783  for immediate service.

Steel section replacement is a better choice if the door has not been discontinued and the manufacturer can be identified.  American Empire can obtain sections from the following discontinued manufacturers:  Millenium Garage Door, Marathon Garage Door and  Doortech Industries.  If more than 2 sections are damaged, it is usually cheaper to replace the complete door because of manufacturer pricing structures and minimal extra labor.
