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 Union City, CA

Although the City of Union City was incorporated in 1959, the name Union City can actually be traced back to 1850. That's when settlers John and William Horner visited an oasis by the Bay and laid out a small settlement town eight square blocks, which they called "Union City." It is said that the name originates from the Horners' Sacramento River steamer called "The Union." Before the time of these pioneers, Mexican rancheros and the Ohlone Indians occupied the area.

When incorporated, Union City brought together the communities of Alvarado, Decoto, and New Haven. Before 1959, their only relation to each other was location. Because of their close proximity to the Bay, Alvarado and New Haven started out as port towns where local farmers could ship produce all over the world. Founded in 1852, Alvarado is credited for growing the Alvarado potato -- a popular produce described as a thick-skinned, mild white potato that may have been developed by Luther Burbank and the Sweet Alameda Corn Company. Founded by Henry Smith, the New Haven community was eventually consumed by Alvarado. While New Haven did not survive as a community, the name lives on in the school district, New Haven Unified, which serves Union City and a portion of South Hayward.
