Frequently Asked Questions
Home Owner Q & A
A garage door is basically a moving wall. It is the largest moving object in your home and one of the objects with the greatest potential to injure a family member or damage your property. Obviously, an improperly installed, badly worn, or broken garage door system exerts tremendous force when the door closes. Take this decision seriously and choose a company with experience.

WHEN SHOULD MY SPRINGS BE REPLACED?
Your garage door’s springs are arguably the most important and most dangerous part of your door. Springs wear out over time. Most springs are rated for about 10,000 cycles. Precision Garage Door of Augusta installs only the highest quality springs that are rated for up to 60,000 cycles. When springs break, injury can result. If you have an older garage door, have your springs inspected by a professional technician and replaced if needed. If your door has two springs, a trained service technician should replace both, even if one is not broken. This will not only prevent any damage caused by the breaking of the second spring, but also keep your door working efficiently. Remember, springs are under very high tension, and adjustment or repair should only be performed by a garage door professional.
WHEN SHOULD MY CABLES BE REPLACED?
Visually inspect the cables that attach the spring system to the bottom brackets on both sides of the door. If these cables are frayed or worn, they are in danger of breaking, which can cause injury. Due to the dangers associated with high spring tension, these cables should be replaced only by a trained technician.
MY SPRINGS ARE SQUEAKY. DO THEY NEED TO BE REPLACED?
Springs can squeak and be noisy. This is caused by normal use and does not necessarily indicate a problem, but if the noise grows louder over time or concerns you, call us to come take a look!
WHAT OTHER DANGERS SHOULD I BE AWARE OF?
MY DOOR SEEMS TO STRUGGLE TO GET UP AND DOWN. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
CAN I USE THE OLD TRACK WITH MY NEW DOOR?
When buying a replacement garage door, some homeowners are tempted to save a few dollars by putting the new door on the old track. However, your old track may not fit with your new door, depending on the thickness of your sections, the weight of the door, the headroom required, the location of the garage door opener, and other considerations. The track and sections work together as a system. For maximum performance and long life, you should use the track that is designed for your specific door.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE MY GARAGE DOOR SERVICED?
Your garage door is probably the largest moving part in your home and is typically used every day. Over time, parts can wear out and break, creating potential safety problems. Although you should perform monthly safety checks and maintenance to your garage door system, an annual visit from a trained door systems technician can keep your door operating safely and smoothly for a long time.
WHY DOES MY EXTENSION SPRING SYSTEM NEED SAFETY CABLES?
WHAT ARE TAMPER RESTRAINT BRACKETS?
Since the bottom brackets on a garage door are connected to the door’s springs, these brackets are under extreme tension. They should be adjusted or loosened only by a trained door systems technician. Many manufacturers now include tamper resistant hardware that prevents loosening of the brackets by a novice.
