Garage Door Opener Repair vs Replacement

Very often when your garage door opener is not functioning properly, it can be repaired. Diagnosing and repairing your existing motor may be a less expensive option than replacing the entire unit. We often recommend repair over replacement for this reason. We always maintain a full inventory of garage door opener parts on our trucks, so we can ordinarily repair it in a single visit.

Like most other technologies today, Garage door openers are changing rapidly to include features that make your life easier and more secure. You can count on your Safe Gate Garage Door Door Technician to expertly inform you about the newest garage door openers and accessories available!

When We Recommend Replacement

When We Recommend Replacement

Federal Regulations (UL 325) were updated in 1993, making garage door openers safer. If yours was manufactured prior to that date, it is unlikely your house would even pass an inspection with it. So, we recommend a replacement in this situation.

No Safety Eyes

If the safety eyes are not present, the opener does not meet UL 325 compliance. Again, your house would be unlikely to pass an inspection if your garage door has no safety eyes. Therefore, we will typically recommend replacement.

Safety Concerns with a Brand

If a manufacturer has been successfully sued for safety defects, we will not repair that model.

Brand No Longer Exists

Parts for these types openers will be unavailable and replacing is usually the only option.
