At Mynt Garage and Shop we also repair broken and damaged residential garage doors and commercial overhead doors. We believe in honest overhead door service and we only charge the customer for what actually needs to be repaired. Be careful when searching online for companies that do garage door repair. Many of the company listings that you will come across are using fake reviews and other unscrupulous methods to get business and try to trick customers into trusting them. We have heard horror stories from some of our customers who have used some of these companies in the past and had very poor work done or over inflated pricing on unnecessary repairs.. We work hard to provide high quality, honest repairs to hard working homeowners, farmers, and small business owners in Forestburg and the entire Flagstaff County area.
At Mynt Garage and Shop we don’t believe in dishonest business practices such as charging for estimates and then offering to credit the estimate charge against an inflated repair price. We don’t do loss leaders, or teaser pricing, or any of the other tricks that many of the unscrupulous garage door repair companies are doing to get their foot in your door. We are an honest family run company that believes that people should be given a guaranteed price for basic garage door repairs before we even come out. We are so confident in our skills and integrity that we are willing to put our repair prices in writing to give homeowners peace of mind that they won’t be taken advantage of.
* Please use the basic maintenance option if you are unsure of what the problem is with your garage door. If we get there and it turns out to be one of the other guaranteed repairs then the $99 dollar fee is waived and the guaranteed pricing is honored. If it turns out to be a problem that is not listed above we will complete our inspection, repair anything that we can in 30 minutes (in many cases we can fix the problem in less than 30 minutes) and give you a detailed report on the options that you have. We have absolutely no hidden fees and we will not try to sell you on service that you don’t need.
*** Please note that this pricing is good for residential garage doors up to 18’w x 8’h within a 50km radius of our location. Anything outside of these parameters may incur reasonable extra charges. ***
One of the most common malfunctions on a garage door is a broken spring. Once a spring breaks it will be very difficult to open your overhead door and you should never try to open it with your garage door opener as you could also damage the opener by trying to lift a door that is much too heavy. Mynt Garage and Shop can fix a broken garage door spring in a timely manner and have you door operating again in no time. We always advise that if one spring breaks on a double door you should change both springs as the other one is liable to break soon as well. We carry a variety of springs with us and we ensure that the perfect spring for your door is used. We are full equipped for both residential and commercial overhead door spring changes.
Another common garage door repair is replacing broken cables. Often these cables start to rust at the bottom where they attach and then one or both of them snap. Improper installation of a door can also cause garage door cables to rub on something and can cause damage that will cause the cable to snap. Broken overhead door cables can be very dangerous as your door can come down very rapidly and fall on someone or something below it. It can also destroy the whole door so if you see any signs of rust or fraying on your garage door cables you should definitely get them replaced because it is much less expensive than replacing a whole garage door.
Sometimes a garage door gets bumped by a car or piece of equipment and is damaged to the point where it doesn't function properly. This can trap vehicles or other large items in a garage. Mynt can come out and get your door functioning again so that you can at least get your vehicles out. Often it is not possible to find replacement panels to permanently fix the door in these cases but we can definitely offer a temporary solution that will work until a new door can be installed.
Many older garage doors end up with broken hinges or rollers. Generally by the time these things go your door is probably ready to be replaced however replacing damaged rollers or hinges can allow your door to function properly again and may give your door a couple more years of life. Some garage door manufacturers use cheaper hardware and it can be a good preventative measure to upgrade your hinges and rollers to allow for smoother, quieter operation as well as a longer life for your garage door overall.
When a garage door opener fails it is sometimes possible to change the gears or repair whatever else is wrong with it. If the garage door opener is not too old this is often the most cost effective solution. Garage door openers that are very old are usually better off to be replaced with newer, quieter, and more reliable technology.
