Garage Door Repair - Door Rollers

Many garage door rollers have unsealed bearings that no longer function after years of rolling back and forth in a dirty garage. The rollers condition can be so severe that the barrings within are frozen in place as the garage door cycles. The only thing you have to contemplate when you are going to replace your door rollers is the size of the garage door that you have. For a 7’ steel residential garage door, you will need ten rollers. Five-panel doors or 8’ doors will require 12 rollers.

Replacing garage door rollers can be dangerous and be should be done by a trained professional. If your rollers are worn or noisy, consider having Five Star Door replace them with quiet nylon rollers with sealed bearings that eliminate the need to grease

Garage Door Repair / Garage Door Opener Installation Testimonials

Garage Door Repair Farmington, MI - 5/5 Stars."YELP REVIEW" "This is the most amazing company- December 2014- our garage door would not open. They were the ones that got here within an hour. Fixed/ so we could get our cars out. We then chose a new heavy duty insulated door- installed 2 days later. During this process they were thorough,reasonable, honest, and very nice. Bruce has a great team! Fast forward just over 2 months ( dead of winter). Our drive is very steep, so I like to back in so I can pull out. Today I ran errands and came home. I backed in - I went very slowly, I hit the button for the garage to open, I hit a patch ice and slid into the lowest panel. I called 5 Star and Bruce was able to send Shane out before 6:00. And our panel can be repaired. This is the company you want to use is you have ANY garage door needs! You will not regret your choice!

Garage Door Opener Repair West Bloomfield, MI -5/5 Stars "YELP REVIEW" - "This is the second time I've worked with this company. First time I just picked up some parts. This time around I called because of a stubborn garage door that won't close properly at a new house my wife and I bought. I initially called a different company that quoted me a five day waiting period before they could come out and a $85 service call. 5 Star doors came out the next day. The tech arrived promptly and was very professional. The door was fixed within 20 minutes. I fully expected to be charged a service call fee which I would have gladly paid considering the problem was solved in such a timely manner. However, I was not charged for the service. I tried to pay the tech but he refused and simply asked that I use them when I replace the motor and/or door. Service like this is hard to find.

Garage Door Struts - Is your Door Bending or Sagging?

Does your garage door open and close easily stopping anywhere in the middle of the opening without banging down or rolling back up? If not, your torsion springs are out of balance or worst a broken spring. There is too much strain on the door and opener. Therefore, the springs should be adjusted.

bent garage door

Garage door struts stiffen sections of the door to prevent them from bending or breaking. Struts help make each section/panel rigid so the door will open and close smoothly. If the sections are not rigid, your garage door will bend as it opens and closes.

Residential single doors typically do not need struts unless it is a steel door that is motor-operated. We recommend, a strut across the top section to prevent the top of the door from bending if the opener force is out of adjustment.

Doors over 10 feet wide usually have at least one strut across the top panel. Five Star Doors adds an additional strut to all our garage door installs. A 16′ wood door should have 3 or more struts, but insulated steel doors should have at least two. 

When we add one or more struts to your door we factor in the additional weight. Struts weigh about twelve pounds for a 16′ door. If you add two struts, it will cause your door to be out of balance. We adjust your spring tension accordingly, or we recommend replacing your torsion springs. Otherwise, the extra weight will shorten the life of your garage door opener.

Garage Door Off Track Repair Services What To Expect From Five Star Doors

Garage Door Off Track

Sometimes your garage door can get off track if it tries to shut and there is an object obstructing its path. Or, it can come off track from normal wear and tear of the tracks or the garage door panels may get out of alignment.

garage door that came off its tracks

We Can Get You Back On Track! Just as the picture shows, if your door came off One or both tracks your door will tilt at an angle or worst yet fall off entirely. Regardless, your door will not be able to open or close and in its current state presents a safety hazard to anyone standing in the vicinity. Besides, may also increase the overall repair cost. But First: Unplug your opener from the electrical outlet, preventing an unknowing guest from opening the garage door

What Caused This To Happen?

ome events can cause garage doors to jump their tracks. The most common source of damage is from vehicles hitting the rail or garage door itself. Bent or damaged tracks won’t allow the door rollers to operate smoothly, and can cause them to “jump” off track. 

Another reason for doors to fall off their track is a broken cable. In this case, the portion of your door off its track/rail is a secondary symptom of your garage door assembly issue. Cables may break due to normal wear and tear over many years. When one cable breaks, your door will only raise on one side when opened, leaving the broken side hanging. Opening or closing your door in this condition is an accident waiting to happen.

Does your garage door have a bent or rusted out door rail/track?

Your garage tracks play an essential part in the garage door and opener system. If the door cannot open and close smoothly, it can shorten the lifespan of your opener, cables, hinge’s and even become a safety issue should the door come off the rails.

A Five Star Doors service technician will do a 20 point inspection of your entire door system, assess the damage and replace the damaged track. Once the new track is back in place, the service technician will ensure that both rails match up perfectly, and your garage door opens and closes smoothly.

Wayne Dalton Torquemaster System - What To Expect From Five Star Doors

The Wayne Dalton Torquemaster system was developed to improve on the traditional torsion spring system. The spring bar/torsion tube remains mounted on the header above the garage door like any standard system.  However, the TorqueMaster system hides the springs within the spring bar/torsion tube. The weight of the garage door will determine the number of springs needed.

Wayne Dalton Torquemaster System

The Torquemaster system also utilizes small plastic drums mounted on each end of the spring bar/torsion tube.  Each cable wraps around the plastic drums and connects to the bottom door bracket.  With the Torquemaster design, the springs provide the capability to counterbalance the weight of the door leaving the cables and drums to lift and lower the door. 

Common System Issues

The springs in a Wayne Dalton Torquemaster system are much smaller in diameter and wire size.  Therefore, more winds are required to provide the muscle to counterbalance the load of the door. The additional spring winds compromise the spring integrity leading to premature failure.

"The springs in a Wayne Dalton Torquemaster system are much smaller in diameter and wire size. The additional spring winds compromise the spring integrity leading to premature failure."

The idea to protect the spring(s) from the external elements on paper was a novel idea, however, in reality, it substantially increased the cost of a broken spring repair. The common problem homeowners have, it is hard to be sure if a spring in the system has broken because the spring(s) are inside the torsion tube.  A key indicator of a busted spring, the door will be quite difficult to open manually. 

Five Star Doors recommends converting your Wayne Dalton spring system to a traditional spring system. The traditional spring system dollar for dollar far exceeds the value Torquemaster system and the cost to convert the system is less than repairing the Torquemaster System and will last substantially longer.
