Backroom or rear clearance is the distance between the overhead door and the back wall of the space where the overhead door is installed. For a residential garage door the backroom required is at least the door height plus 18”. For a commercial overhead door the requirement is door height plus 23” when 2” track is used and 25” when 3” track is used. The backroom requirement is also larger if an electric opener needs to be installed behind the overhead door.

Firstly, we recommend you to make sure that no one can use your lost remote to gain access to your personal space. If you have additional spare remotes you can easily erase the memory and reset the code, making sure that the lost remote no longer will work. In most cases we can promptly offer you a replacement for a missing or damaged remote from our inventory. However, for some electric opener models we may need to order the remote in from its manufacturer or offer an universal remote. Please contact us for pricing and availability.

Commercial FAQ

Mechanical levelers need working springs with the proper amount of tension to operate. If the leveler won’t come up, either the springs need more tension or the springs are broken and need to be replaced. Contact Easy Lift Doors to have one of our trained technicians to fix your problem. We can lift the leveler and secure it so that we can work safely on the equipment.

Residential FAQ

For a residential garage door with torsion springs a top clearance or headroom of 12” is required. If you want to add an electric opener an additional 2” is required. In low headroom instances dual-tracks can be used to decrease the requirements. Please let us know about your situation and we will be happy to determine which track system will be most suitable for you.

There can be several causes for your garage door to be acting like this. Opener gears (or chain) require regular lubrication. In some openers the internal plastic gears may be stripped and in need of replacement. Internal plastic gears may get stripped if the bottom seal is frozen to the floor. Lubrication is crucial, if the gears are not lubricated and run dry they can get stripped quickly. Easy Lift Doors offers opener gear kits for replacing any stripped parts. Also keeping the lifting cables, rollers, spring and bearings lubricated will keep your garage door operating more smoothly.

If the door is still making an unusual noise, try listening closer to determine the source. Worn out rollers or tracking may cause grinding sounds, bent spring coils may cause a grating sound, a door out of balance may cause squealing, defective panels or hinges may cause banging or popping noises, worn out shaft bearings or rollers may cause ticking and loosened spring tension may cause rumbling.

Easy Lift Doors expert technicians are glad to help and will promptly get your garage door operating properly again.
