With these garage door openers, you can open and close your garage door from virtually everywhere, and see what is going on in you garage at any time.

Garage Door Opener Solutions: Repair vs. Replacement
For all that they do, modern garage door openers are surprisingly affordable. Oftentimes, if your garage door opener stops working, and you have an older model, it might be worth it for you to replace your old model for an upgraded one. That being said, there are still plenty of scenarios in which you’d be better off keeping your current garage door opener, and simply having it repaired. For example, if you recently had a new motor installed, then you wouldn’t want to have that replaced again, or if it’s simply outside your budget, then you’ve got to work with what you’ve got.
In many cases, most other garage door repair companies in Allston, are not going to conciser what is actually best for you, and instead, they will try to sell you a new motor, regardless of if you need it or not. At Clark’s, we do things differently. We have this revolutionary idea that what is best for our customer, IS what is best for us. Because of this philosophy, we will never try to sell you a new opener if you don’t need one. Things that we conciser in determining weather to repair or replace you garage door motor are:
- If your garage door opener was made before 1993, then it is inherently unsafe. Federal regulations on garage door openers were changed in 1993, and we are legally required to update your garage door opener model if it was made before this time.
- If your garage door opener model has been recalled, or if the manufacturer has been successfully sued for your model being dangerous, then we would recommend that you replace your garage door opener.
- If your garage door opener doesn’t have safety photo eye sensors, replacement is recommended.
- If the parts for you model are no longer made replacement is required.
When is the right time to replace your garage door opener in Allston, MA
Garage door openers can fail for a variety of reasons. Our garage door repair technicians will find what exactly is wrong with your garage door opener. Many times, the issue is not with the garage door motor at all, instead, it’s a problem with the garage door being off balance. An easy way to tell if your garage door is off balance or not, is to pull the emergency release cord (when your garage door is all the way down), and gently lift it to the middle of the garage opening. If your garage door is balanced properly, it will rest easily in the middle, if it is off balance, it will fall lower or rise higher. An off balance garage door will make your garage door opener have to work harder than it should. This causes issues to arise, and could lead to your garage door opener to stop working as well, or just stop entirely. Regardless of the problem, our garage door repair technicians in Allston will diagnose it, and provide you with a solution.
