Up and over garage doors are one of the most popular types of garage door design. Mounted on tracks that run across the ceiling of your garage, the door should effortlessly glide up and out of the way when you open it. However, even with premium garage doors, there may come a time when professional attention is required.

Common issues requiring up and over garage door repairs
Got a problem with your garage door? The first thing to do is to take a close look at the garage door yourself and see if you can identify where the issue lies. Here are some of the problems we encounter with up and over garage doors on a regular basis, and some helpful suggestions for actions you can take yourself.
Door is stuck halfway
Modern up and over garage doors are precision engineered, meaning that even the smallest obstruction can negatively affect the operation of the door. If your garage door is jammed and won’t move up or down, check for obvious blockages inside the tracks, and make sure nothing inside the garage is blocking the door.
Door is hard to open or close
If your up and over garage door feels unusually stiff when you open or close it, there may be an issue with the tracks. Start by cleaning off any dirt or debris that might be obstructing the rollers and add lubrication so that the door glides again. However, if sections of the tracks are dented or warped, you will need to call out our repair technicians.
Door won’t stay open
If the door keeps slipping, drooping or closing on you, the problem is likely to be with the torsion springs at the top of the frame and/or the extension springs at the sides. Once the tension goes, the weight of the door can no longer be supported properly. A qualified technician can easily adjust the springs but if you ignore the issue, the springs will eventually fail and need replacing.
Malfunctioning automatic controls
Has your electric up and over garage door stopped responding to the remote control? The fault could be with the handset (check the batteries) or access code, or it could be with the power supply (check the fuse board) or the motor overheating due to continuous use. Call out one of our expert technicians to take a professional look at it.
General poor condition
Garage door defects and damage in the form of cracks, dents or buckles will not only look unsightly, they may prevent the door from operating correctly. A regular maintenance regime is key for dealing with minor damage on steel, timber, GRP and ABS Plastic doors, and periodic professional servicing is highly recommended to get the most out of your door.
