Garage doors have a history of causing injury. Over the years, several safety features have been added to garage door openers to reduce the probability of injury. Residential garage doors are equipped with safety eyes and a reversal mechanism.
If your door is closing, any obstruction that moves through the doorway should be detected by the safety eyes. Federal Legislation in 1993 mandates all garage doors be equipped with safety eyes. The safety eyes will trigger the reversal mechanism and send the garage door back up.
The safety reversal mechanism will also be triggered if the garage door opener detects tension, or a physical object is blocking its path. To test the reversal mechanism, place a 2×4 in the door way flat side down. The 1.5 inches of wood should be enough to tell the door to stop closing and raise the door. If your door does not return to the open position, you know it is time to have a garage door technician come and adjust your equipment.

My garage door opener broke one morning. I called as soon as I found out. Robbie and Ben came out the same afternoon (a Saturday). He explained the problem and presented my options. He replaced my opener, cleaned and serviced the tracks. He gave me a 5 year warranty. Robbie and Ben were prompt, professional, reasonably priced, and very straightforward. I didn’t feel like I was being taken advantage of or pressured into items/services I didn’t need. Excellent customer service. HIGHLY recommended!
Call this guy. I’m very glad I did. I called last night at 8:40pm to “leave a message” (given it was Sunday night) and Robbie picked up. We made an appointment for 9am Monday morning and less than an hour later my broken roller was replaced and my track, chain, and joints were lubricated and tuned for $40. My garage door has never run quieter. Thanks!
These guys deserve the praise they are getting on Yelp. They answered my call on a Friday night, were out to give me an estimate exactly when they said they would. The price seemed right and they got to work on the spot to fix my problem. They definitely get it when it comes to customer service. Especially when it comes to something like a garage door which you never think about unless it’s broken. I was fearful I would have to street park for a long time but I was only out of service for 12 hours. Great company. Great experience.
Well let me join the Robbie love fest! My garage door is ancient, but Robbie was fearless. He even quoted multiple options just in case we were being cost conscious. He quoted a wonderful price and was as thorough as he was efficient. He even provided warranty for his service. As another reviewer mentioned, he removes his shoes before he enters your house! Don’t even bother getting another quote, this is your guy!
My Liftmaster opener failed. I opened it up hoping I could fix it myself, only to find shredded gears. Without the time or knowledge to work on it, I called Robert around midnight and left a message. He called me first thing in the morning and set up a visit a few hours later with his brother Jack. Jack quickly made the repair and helped me to understand what caused the problem and how to prevent it from happening in the future. I appreciate the helpful advice, reasonable price, and timely service. I will call Robert’s in the future should I have any more trouble with my garage door. Thanks guys!
