Broken Garage Door? Call Broten
If you are like many South Florida homeowners, your garage serves as the primary entrance for your home, so it’s necessary to keep your garage door and opener in good operating condition. Doing so prolongs the lifespan of your garage door system, saves you money on repair costs, and ensures your home’s safety and security. No matter what type of garage door repair or maintenance services you need, the skilled technicians at Broten Garage Door Sales can assist you.
If you find yourself stuck inside your garage or stranded outside of it due to a mechanical issue or hardware failure, our experts can provide the repairs your garage door requires.
Average homeowners use their garage doors at least 1,500 times per year to safely and conveniently leave and enter their homes. With frequent daily use, it’s expected that your garage door and its hardware may experience wear and breakage. The likelihood of damage is even greater for Florida homeowners dealing with the state’s harsh tropical weather.
With over 60 years of garage door repair experience, our team at Broten Garage Door Sales has seen every type of garage door issue, large or small. We can reliably and skillfully repair any garage door or opener make or model. We can assist you with several common garage door repairs, including spring and cable damage, off-track doors, garage door opener malfunctions, as well as other repairs like drum or roller replacements.
1. SPRING REPAIR
Of all the common types of garage door damage, broken springs are among the most frequent issues homeowners experience.
Most South Florida homeowners have either an extension or torsion spring system responsible for counterbalancing the weight of the garage door and facilitating smooth and efficient door movement. These springs are intended to last for many years without becoming damaged, but they do eventually break.
Torsion springs are generally dependable for 15,000 to 20,000 cycles, or about seven to 10 years. Extension springs last around 10,000 cycles, or five to seven years.
At Broten Garage Door Sales, we can quickly and expertly repair or replace any type of garage door spring system you may have. Our highly trained professionals understand how to safely remove and replace any type of garage door spring without causing personal or property injury. For all of our garage door spring replacements, we utilize only the highest-quality spring products to ensure lasting performance and dependability.
2. CABLE REPAIR
Garage door cables work alongside the spring system to operate the door. If the springs break, the cables are likely to also sustain damage and require replacement. Even if your springs are in good condition, the cables can become worn, frayed, or weakened with regular use. When your garage door cables are damaged, you may notice that your door becomes stuck or is lopsided on one end.
Your garage door’s panels add to the home’s overall appearance while serving as an important barrier between your interior space and Florida’s harsh weather. Being exposed to various temperatures and climates, your garage door panels can become damaged over time with dents, cracks, or rust buildup.
Your door panels may need to be replaced if the damage is extensive and is affecting the quality of your garage door, or if the panels have been struck recently or dented from an impact. Bent panels are not only unattractive, but heavily damaged panels can also eventually break completely and pose a safety and security risk.
Contact the professionals at Broten Garage Door Sales to explore your garage door panel replacement options.
4. WEATHERSTRIPPING REPLACEMENT
Garage door weatherstripping is often found at the bottom of your garage door and sometimes along the sides and top as well. It provides a seal that works to protect your garage from various elements and moisture, and it helps to maintain your home’s internal temperature.
Over time, your door’s weatherstripping may wear out, leaving gaps between your door and the outside. Damaged garage door weatherstripping can allow water through your door and can even reduce your home’s energy efficiency.
With the help of our technicians, we can quickly evaluate which type of weatherstripping product your door needs for lasting efficiency and reliability and then quickly install it onto your door.
5. BROKEN TRACK REPAIR
Your garage door’s tracks allow the cables to move smoothly during operation. Damaged garage door tracks are often marked by loud, noisy door operations or jerking door motions when the garage door is opening and closing. Having one of our professionals inspect your tracks can prevent further garage door damage and the need for costly repairs. We’ll inspect your broken tracks and can either recommend fast repairs or replacement options.
6. MISALIGNED GARAGE DOOR REPAIR
Misaligned garage doors can encompass a variety of issues, including the door rubbing against the molding, door binding (difficulty opening or closing), a large gap beneath the door, or a crooked or off-balance door. Garage door misalignment can be caused by several issues, including damaged springs or worn hardware. Call the experts at Broten Garage Door Sales to inspect your door and identify the cause of your misaligned garage door.
Your garage door drums are wheels that you’ll find around the torsion bar at the top of the garage door. The drums act as spools for the safety cables, which attach to the drums and latches at the bottom of the door. The cables and drums are essential parts of the counterbalance assembly that allows the door to open and close.
If the garage door’s drums suffer damage, the cables may slide out. Cracking or warping can occur over time due to general wear and tear. At Broten Garage Door Sales, we will inspect your garage door drums for signs of damage and perform a drum replacement if necessary.
Garage door rollers are small wheels that attach to the panel and slide along the tracks. When in proper working condition, the wheels will glide with ease, ensuring smooth, noiseless operation. However, garage door rollers are small devices that are susceptible to damage. Factors like inadequate lubrication and general wear cause friction that detracts from the rollers’ performance. Damaged rollers may even fall out of the tracks.
We resolve garage door roller issues in a couple of ways. Lubrication and cleaning can help your rollers move smoothly again. In some cases, the best approach is a roller replacement.
Having access to your home through the garage door is important. In fact, one study found that 55% of homeowners use their homes’ garage doors as the main entranceway. At Broten Garage Door, we maintain and repair garage door openers to ensure they work when you need them.
There are various problems that can occur within a garage door opener to stop it from working. For instance, an electrical problem may prevent the opener from drawing power or a broken trolley carriage may disconnect from the belt, chain or cable. Garage door openers are intricate systems that require experience and skill to repair, so trust Broten Garage Door Sales handle your opener repair.

We’ll be there fast to ensure you can get your car out of the garage for your morning commute or that it will be able to close safely for the night.
