People contact us with many different garage door issues. Sometimes it's the garage door opener that has failed. Other times the garage door will not go up, or will not go down, or it has gotten stuck. Still other times, it is the garage door spring that has failed. And then sometimes the customer doesn't know what is wrong with his or her garage door, other than the fact that it is broken.

Common Garage Door Problems

Need a New Garage Door

We are at your service. Whether it's replacing your old springs, changing cables, rollers or hinges, we can handle any problem that may arise.

Garage Door Springs break from use.

From metal fatigue. They average about Ten to Twelve Thousand Cycles. (uses) before they break. When a spring breaks it recoils about eight turns, leaving a two inch gap, (as shown to the right.) If your garage door has two springs, we recommend replacing both springs so you have a fresh pair. If one has enough use to break, the other is soon to follow.

Rollers are also something that wear out on garage doors.

At first they start to wobble and get noisy
Then they can start to come out of the track, which can be disastrous. We use the ball-bearing nylon roller. It has a grease packed bearing with  Zink coated metal stem and ball track for anti-rust and smooth operation.

We also repair some brands of garage door openers.

Lift-Master, Sears-Craftsman, Genie, Overhead Door. Call us with your brand and tell us a description of the symptom, we can usually give you a quote on the phone for the repair.We also sell new doors and openers.If you don't feel the old door or opener is worth fixing, we have a variety of products to choose from.

About Newark, CA

The name "Newark" did not come from the city in New Jersey. It was named by a Mr. J. Barr Robertson, a Scotsman who was a director of the California Land Investment Co., Ltd., London, England. He chose the name from the castle "Newark" in Port Glasgow, Scotland. But Newark didn't start even thinking about becoming a town until the railroads started taking an interest in the area in 1875. The first aspect of the town contained a railroad station, a roundhouse, railshop building and then a hotel. This area was right around Carter Street.

Take Thornton Ave off of 880 and head west. After the bend, you'll reach Sycamore St. Turn left. Take your first right at Carter Ave. Just on the other side of the tracks at your left and right is the spot. If you came up Carter from Sycamore, the hotel stood on the left, just before the tracks. Across Carter Ave., the street's namesakes, Thomas and Martin Carter set up shop building trains for the narrow gauge.

Below is a photo looking across the tracks and down Carter Ave. On the right is the Newark Hotel. On the left, the dark building is the Carter Brothers' shops. In front of it is the Newark Depot. The photo was taken around 1908. The "now" color photo is what the same view looks like today. It's difficult to tell with these photos, but the house directly at the end of Carter Ave, right in the middle of the photo, is the same in both photos.
