My garage door was operating very jerky and noisy. I was afraid it was going to jump the track when I opened it, so I phoned for service. Ron Burns of One Clear Choice analyzed the problem quickly and made the proper adjustment. He also pointed out other potential problems and performed preventive maintenance overall, which I greatly appreciated. I couldn’t be more pleased. Now the door opens smoothly and quietly, and I’m not afraid what will happen when I push the button! This company offers great, on-time service that I would highly recommend.

Pop quiz: What is likely the largest, heaviest moving object in your home? Here are a few hints: it provides security and protects against the elements. If insulated and newer, it will help your home conserve energy. And it allows you and your family convenient access to and from your home.
Answer: It’s your garage door.
But do you know how to operate and maintain your garage door safely? Do your kids know the potential hazards that a garage door may present? The Garage Door Safety Quiz, found at www.garagedoorcare.com, can help.
“At only five questions long, the quiz will take you just a few minutes to complete,” says Chris Long, managing director of the International Door Association, a trade association comprised of more than 2,000 door and access system dealers and installers worldwide, which manages the website. “But knowing the answers to those five questions can help keep you and your family safe from potential garage door hazards.”
* A moving garage door can pose a risk for injury, or even death
* Children or adults should never stand, run, or play under or near any garage door – especially when the door is open or moving
* It’s important that children realize that the garage door and its associated parts are not toys. Like elevator buttons and your television’s remote control buttons, the buttons on your remote garage door opener may be enticing for children to press. Adults should not allow children access to the remote opener, and push button wall controls should be installed at least five feet off the ground, out of the reach of children.
It’s particularly important that parents learn about children and garage door safety. A special learning tool on the website entitled “D.O.O.R. Safe” contains four brief messages to help parents teach young children the dos and don’ts of garage doors, such as:
* Doors are heavy – never stand, run or play under or near any garage door.
* Openers are for adults – never play with the button on the wall that opens and closes the garage door.
* Ouch – never touch any part of a moving garage door. Your fingers and hands can get hurt.
* Remotes are for adults – never play with the remote control in the car or on Mom and Dad’s keychain.
Installing or repairing a garage door may also be dangerous to even the most avid do-it-yourselfer. While there are many maintenance checks that you can perform yourself – like monthly tests that include visual inspections, door balance, reversing mechanism, photo eye, force setting and a semi-annual lubrication – there are some tasks that are best left to a professional. For example, door installation, annual maintenance or repair of a garage door’s springs or cables should be performed by a trained service technician.
It’s pretty simple. Garage doors are what we do. We service Arvada, Aurora, Brighton, Centennial, Castle Rock, Denver, Fort Collins, Littleton, Loveland, Thornton, and every neighborhood in between.
We also sell and install hardware, openers, accessories, remotes, springs, and pretty much anything related to garage doors and garage door operation.

Did you know that 90% of the garage door companies found on the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website are uninsured one-man operations run from their homes?
These “companies” can cause problems for homeowners who utilize their services, such as:
1. Availability of personnel and/or parts to customers should problems arise.
2. Many times they are not prepared to complete the job due to inadequate inventory.
3. If a company is run by one person, and that one person decides to quit, they can disappear overnight.
When you need garage door service or repair, find a strong company that has the resources to best serve your needs.
Signs of this type of company:
1. Hires and trains employees, not sub-contractors.
2. Has a fleet of fully stocked trucks, not a single unmarked truck with some parts.
3. Has a showrooms and a warehouse.
4. Has 24-hour customer service, not a cell phone answered between jobs.

In this video, Lowe’s home improvement expert Mike Kraft gives tips on how to maintain your garage door. Find printable instructions for this video at http://www.Lowes.com/Videos.
There are three key steps to garage door maintenance:
Start outside, cleaning the outside of your door with a soft sponge or cloth. You should do this once a year or potentially more if you live in a soft air climate. Once it is washed, just rinse with a hose. If the garage door is made of wood, inspect the door to see if it needs to be repainted or stained.
It’s also good to do a safety check every few months or so. Keep in mind torsion springs can cause injuries. When doing safety checks, remove any cars or debris from the garage door area or tracks. Then do a visual inspection of all the cables, rollers, springs and hinges. Replace anything is frayed or worn and tighten bolts. For bolts that are near a safety tag or painted red, only have a trained technician adjust.
Also check the door balance, disconnecting the power first to the opener. Then disengage the door from the opener and raise the door to waist level. Release slowly. If the door raises or lowers, a trained technician will need to adjust the balance.
Use a non-silicone based lubricant to lubricate hinges, springs and bearings. Don’t oil the tracks, or else the door might become unbalanced.
