When Castleton Indiana was founded in 1843, it was a very small village. But it benefited greatly from its proximity to a stop on the railroad line that was commonly called the Nickel Plate Road. The railroad station was located along what is now 82nd Street. The growing area received another big boost with the completion of the I-465 beltway in 1970 as Castleton was close to the major junction of I-465 and I-69.

Residents of Castleton enjoy a robust commercial district with many shops and businesses, including Indiana’s largest shopping mall – the Castleton Square Mall. With recent efforts aimed at Castleton revitalization, homeowners are paying more attention to property values than ever before, and many are looking at their garage doors as a way to improve their home’s value and curb appeal.

Castleton Home Garage Door Repair Service by Skilled Technicians

Driveway leading to a one-car and two-car garage

When you pull up to a house, one of the first things you see – and notice – is the garage door. You notice garage doors because for many homes they are the largest element seen from the street. How do the garage doors look on your home? An important aspect of maintaining your home’s value includes taking a closer look at your garage doors.

There are a few DIY things you can take care of yourself if they need attention. Replacing the batteries in your remote garage door opener, cleaning off the sensor or “eye” that prevents the door from closing when an object is in its path, or even replacing deteriorating weather-stripping. But there are lots of other repairs you may need that are best left to the certified technicians at Garage Doors of Indianapolis, such as the following:

Damaged Panels:

Needless to say, your home’s curb appeal plummets if there is visible damage to one or more panels of the garage doors. Depending on the nature and extent of the damage, Garage Doors of Indianapolis may be able to repair the damaged panel or replace just the damaged panel rather than replacing the entire door.

Spring Replacement: 

On a manual garage door, when springs need to be replaced you notice that lifting the door is harder than it should be and it slams down when closing it. On an automatic garage door, it won’t open at all. When one or more torsion springs need to be replaced, all the springs must end up properly balanced and equalized for ease of operation and long-term integrity. If you’ve ever been within earshot of a spring that snaps, you might have thought it was a firecracker or even a gunshot – it’s that loud. Those springs are under a lot of tension because those springs are what do the heavy lifting of opening your garage door.

Snapped Cables: 

Many garage doors have both springs and cables, if a spring breaks and you don’t have it repaired immediately, it’s likely that cables will start breaking next. You don’t want to be anywhere near a garage door cable when it snaps. It’s also under a lot of tension and can fly out like a metal whip.

Broken or Missing Rollers: 

Getting the right size to fit your system is essential. You’ll save yourself a lot of time if you let professionals take care of this otherwise simple repair.

Dead Remote: 

If your remote garage door opener is not working, the first thing you should do is replace the batteries. If that doesn’t fix it, then there are all sorts of things that might be wrong with the remote or the garage door opener itself. If the door operates fine when you use the wall switch, then you might need a whole new remote.

Nonfunctioning Opener: 

If your garage door openers stops working, there are any number of things that might be wrong. Assuming it’s not just needing to replace batteries in the remote control unit, other possibilities include the opener needs to be reset (unplug it from the wall for 30 seconds and plug it back in), the garage door antenna is no longer properly attached, blown circuits, malfunctioning or misaligned sensors, stuck motor, blown capacitor, stripped gears or apparatus, and any number of other issues.

Off-Track Door: 

Do not attempt to reattach your garage door to the rail if it has gotten off-track. Serious injury can occur. Let the certified technicians at Garage Doors of Indianapolis do the heavy lifting on this repair!

Misaligned Sensors: 

The electronic “eyes” are sensors that form a beam across the bottom of your garage opening. If the beam is broken because an object is in the path of the oncoming garage door, the opener will stop the door in order to prevent damage or injury. Those sensors can get out of alignment, in which case the opener may not function at all, or always reverse direction past a certain point when you’re trying to close the garage door.
