Why Trust Balanced Garage Doors To Repair Your Garage Door?

It takes a qualified professional to service garage doors safely. With weights that can exceed hundreds of pounds, garage doors are heavy, and the torsion springs that lift them can store tremendous amounts of energy, leading to serious injuries if a spring snaps or breaks.

At Balanced Garage Doors, we have the experience and equipment to repair your garage door safely, and we offer fast, affordable services throughout northern Georgia. With our quality parts and top-notch work, you can count on us for all your garage door needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I repair my own garage door?

Your time is worth something, and you’ll spend much more time repairing your garage door than we will. We have the right tools. If you try to do the work yourself, you’re also likely to void the manufacturer’s warranty. In the end, it’s not worth it. The best home DIYers (do-it-yourselfers) know when to call a professional. 

Can I replace a section of my garage door, or do I need to replace the whole door?

It depends on the damage. If one panel is damaged, a one-panel replacement may work. But if the hinges or springs are damaged, partial replacement is tricky. Let Balanced Garage Doors assess your garage door repair.

FYI: Garage door replacement increases your property value and curb appeal. You could see as much as a 93.8% ROI (return on investment) when you sell your home. 

What causes a garage door to break?

Undamaged garage doors usually last 15–30 years, depending on garage door maintenance. Your garage door can break due to:

  • Age
  • Broken or worn-out cables, hardware (bolts, etc.), hinges, rollers, or springs
  • Track misalignment

Why does my garage door open/close on its own?

It could be a circuit board short, damaged wiring, or incorrect settings. It might be a radio frequency or wireless signal problem with your garage door remote controls. Do you have debris close to the door?

Garage doors have a safety feature that prevents them from closing if they sense any obstacles. If the sensor is dirty or damaged, it could be the cause of opening/closing erratically. 

If you live in or around North Fulton County or Gwinnett County, you expect high-quality products, services, and affordability. Balanced Garage Doors products are made from superior materials, and we’re a recipient of the Angi Super Service Award and are a Home Advisor contractor.

I cannot recommend Balanced Garage Doors highly enough. Their technicians are knowledgeable, friendly, and professional and their prices are very reasonable. Balanced Garage installed a new garage door for me a few years ago, and I was very pleased with the service, quality, and price. Today I had an issue with my garage (caused by my own mistake). I called Balanced Garage Doors and the problem was fixed within a few hours! Spencer went above and beyond to make sure the issue wouldn't happen again.

CJ was amazing. He came over, quickly diagnosed our issues and provided several options for us to move forward. The prices were reasonable and he really gave us great opinions on our path forward. At one point, my 5 year old son was in his way and I appreciated how he just went with the flow and was extremely nice to him. Thanks CJ!
