Our experts advise clients to replace the garage door tracks when replacing the door itself. This is simply because each brand has been precisely made to work with a particular type of track.

If your garage has restricted headroom, you may require a more special type of opener such as a side mounted one or a jackshaft opener.
I am replacing my garage door, should I replace the garage door opener too?
If the new garage door is compatible and is working fine with the current garage door opener, then there is no need to replace it. However, if the new garage door is heavier than the old one, the current door opener may not be able to handle the additional load. Experts at Garage Door Repair San Marcos can also provide replacement solutions for you.
My garage door will not close or open when I use the remote control. What should I do?
When the garage door refuses to close or open when you use the remote control, try moving closer to the garage door. If the range is not the issue, check the antenna of the motor unit. Make sure that it is hanging down. You should also check the remote’s batteries. If neither of these solutions work, try reprograming the remote control.
