Garage Door Repair
For so many products and components in South Carolina homes, the answer to “it’s broken!” is usually an expensive replacement. Thankfully, garage doors still follow a lifelong legacy of durability and strong construction, and in most cases can have issues repaired in lieu of total replacement.

Not only do we offer dependable, reliable service for nearly any make and model of garage door, our well-trained team is fast, friendly, and fair in pricing.

The photo eye for my garage door isn’t working – what should I do?
If your door is refusing to close, there may be something minor holding up the works. Check the surface of the sensors for dust or debris. In a sensitive-tuned system, something as small as an annoying stinkbug over a photo eye can be enough to bring your garage door to an unexpected halt. Poor alignment may cause problems: if you suspect the photo eye isn’t aligned with the laser on the opposite side, our team can come out to realign them for you.
My garage door has a broken spring – how do I fix it?
If your garage door spring is visibly broken, it’s time to call in the experts. While some issues at home can be remedied with a DIY approach, broken garage door springs should only be fixed by an expert. That’s because the spring – whether it’s an existing second spring or the replacement for a broken spring – is under a huge amount of tension. If it’s improperly installed, it could snap forward at a high velocity, posing a serious safety and injury risk.
One of my garage door cables looks damaged or broken – what do I do?
If your garage door operates with winding cables, attempting to use a door with damaged or frayed cables can lead to further damage, and may even break the door. Call Wayne’s Overhead Doors and make an appointment for one of our team members to come out to your home: they’ll be able to diagnose the problem and offer a safe, efficient solution for cable repair or replacement.
Why is my garage door making so much noise when I open or close it?
Like any machine or system with moving parts, repeated use can lead to joints in the mechanism rubbing against one another and wearing down. This is particularly true of garage doors, which are exposed to the elements and all the sand, grit, and extreme temperatures that go along with them. Always follow manufacturer’s instructions for maintenance on your garage door system, including applying the recommended lubrication to moving parts.
