A garage is a building or part of a building either designed or used for storing a vehicle or vehicles. In most homes featuring a garage, the garage has a door in the front for vehicle access and a second door from the house. Garage doors are controlled by garage openers, which is a small radio transmitted that can be used from the owners car. Garages can be attached to the home or separate from the home.

Garage Door Repair Tips by Check A Pro
Repairing a Garage Door:
Overhead garage doors or door, whether they roll up in sections or swing up in one piece, operate on spring tension which may be dangerous while working with the garage door spring. The door moves on metal tracks on the garage walls, and a heavy spring or springs provide the power. In most cases when the door doesn't work easily, repairs are fairly simple. Here are some helpful repair tips:
Step 1: Check the garage door tracks inside the garage. Look at the garage door mounting brackets that hold the tracks to the walls. If they're loose, tighten the bolts or screws at the brackets. Working inside the garage with all of the garage doors closed you must examine the tracks for damage. If there are any damaged spots, pound them out with a rubber mallet, or with a hammer and a block of scrap wood. If the tracks are badly damaged, they should be replaced.
Step 2: Check the tracks with a level to make sure they're properly aligned. Horizontal garage door tracks should slant slightly down toward the back of the garage with roll-up doors, the vertical sections of track should be exactly level or even. Both tracks must be at the same height on the garage walls. If the tracks are not properly installed loosen the screws that hold the mounting brackets, and tap the tracks carefully into position. Re-check the garage door tracks with the level to make sure they're in the right position; then tighten the screws or bolts at the mounting brackets.
Step 3: Clean the garage door tracks with an approved cleaner to remove dirt and old grease. Clean or replace the garage door rollers.
Step 4: Check for loose pieces then tighten as needed. On hatch doors, check the plates where the spring is mounted to be sure the screws are tight, and tighten any loose screws. On a roll door check the hinges that hold the sections of the door together; tighten any loose screws, and replace any damaged hinges or rollers. Sagging at one side of the door can often be corrected by servicing the hinges. If a screw hole is enlarged, replace the screw with a longer one of the same diameter, and use a hollow fiber plug, dipped in carpenters' glue, with the new screw. If the wood is cracked at a hinge, remove the hinge and fill the cracks and the screw holes with wood filler. Let the filler dry and then replace the hinge. If possible, move the hinge onto solid wood.
Please NOTE: If your garage door has only one spring, at the center of the door, do not attempt to work or repair the torsion spring. The tension is so great that the spring could injure you and is some cases kill you. For doors with this type of spring, call a professional garage door repair service or go to www.checkapro.com

Garage Door maintenance can save you a lot of money in terms of garage door repair costs. Adam from EZ Lift came out to my house 2 years ago to look at my broken garage door. I told him on the phone that I thought we needed a new garage door replacement. He looked at the door after sending him a picture of the garage door. He said Check A Pro, I think I can fix this door! Sure enough Adam was able to get the door back on the track. He lubricated all of the moving parts and did an overall check of both of my garage doors. Well all I can say is 2 years later we are very happy with the garage door repair and I save a lot of money.
"I had EZ Lift installed my new garage door opener and key pad. They went the extra mile to make sure my new opener as well as my door and tracks would operate optimally. The owner Adam fully tuned up my door tracks, spring tensions and wheel before installing the opener and keypad. I was so pleased I bought my neighbor an EZ Lift gift certificate for a tune up as a thank you for watching our house while we were gone on vacation. If on time, affordable, professional, extra mile, quality and timely service is something you expect from a service provider,
I recommend EZ Lift Garage Doors."
