    Insurance Claims

The common claims we deal with include the backing of vehicles into garage doors or if your premises has unfortunately been the victim of burglary or theft. In the latter case we can install new locks to provide immediate security and subsequently generate a repair or replacement quote for your garage door for your insurance company.  

    Garage Door Springs

    A common repair on your standard sectional/panel lift garage door is a broken spring. These occur after the garage door has completed a certain amount of cycles. Once they break the door can become very dangerous and hard to lift.  The springs are what lifts the door weight, making the door light to lift and they are used whether your door is operated by hand or by motor. These springs are under high tension and made of steel. Over time the steel weakens and can break due to general wear and tear or lack of regular maintenance and servicing. When one of the springs breaks, we always replace both springs to ensure optimal operation and best value for money.

    We Stock Garage Door Accessories

    Doors Direct carry most sizes and types of garage door springs in stock so we can replace them the same day or the next day to get your door working again.

    As well as the springs, the cables are also another common part on the sectional/panel lift garage door that can either come off or break. Doors Direct can either re attach these for you or replace them with a new set of cables.

    If you need a new remote and/or a new motor/opener we can help with many options and budgets to suit.
