Posted by Wendell Daguno on Tue, Jan 26, 2016 @ 06:02 PM

There are a lot of liftmaster motor door companies that claim to be Liftmaster experts but actually they are only good at installing them and not repairing them.  The easy way is to tell a prospective customer you need to replace your whole unit, but our crew knows the respectful way is to work hard and fix the problem at a lower cost to the end customer.  It’s the right way to conduct business.  Don’t be fooled by high volume Liftmaster operator installation companies.  You need to truly research if your vendor or subcontractor can diagnose and repair your systems after you purchased them.

Our team can repair, service and maintain your Industrial Liftmaster Motors.  We can replace clutches, chains, gearhead, gearbox, and sprockets for all kinds of doors.  Liftmaster motors, by Chamberlain, is used on rolling steel doors and overhead sectional doors.   You can even find them on low-duty economy sheet doors.

Perhaps your operator is overused?  Did your current liftmaster door company sell you the right operator?  All too common, customers are sold a low-priced liftmaster commercial operator but end up paying more in the life time operational cost of the system.  Ask us and we can tell you the difference.  You shouldn’t have to pay 4x the price of a motor in repairs afterwards!

Parts of a Sectional Door

Posted by Wendell Daguno on Mon, Apr 07, 2014 @ 08:33 PM

Sectional Doors Sectional Doors

Whether your business already has a sectional door installed or you are considering at as option for your convenience and security needs, it is important to know how the door operates so you can use it properly and make sure you obtain the maintenance it requires. The key to understanding the operation is observing the most important parts of a sectional door. Here are a few of the parts you’ll find on most of the common sectional doors on the market today.

Track – The track section is what guides the door up and out of the way when it is not being used.

Motor – A motorized sectional door is the standard today. A motor is what operates the opener and moves the door as necessary.

Sectional Panels – Each panel is separate from the one next to it. This allows the door to fold or roll up on itself when it is in the open position.

Hinges – This is what holds together the adjacent sections of the door. With a sectional door, this is vital for holding the door together but allowing it to move.

Springs – Springs are what make the door open and close as it should. Without a spring, the door would just fall to the floor. It is vital that springs are checked out regularly to make certain they are operating as they should.

If you have any questions about your sectional door or are considering installing one in the future, call or contact the team at The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands and NYC. We would love to help!
