Garage Door Not Working Right? Before You Call a
If your garage door isn't quite working right and you call a garage door supplier that sells new doors... there's a decent chance that they will recommend replacing your entire door.
While that is always an option, it's usually an expensive one, and certainly not your only option.
When you call a company that specializes in garage door repairs as opposed to sales of new doors - a company that doesn't even offer new garage doors and installations - you know that your door will be carefully looked over and problems diagnosed to offer you the best repair possible - at a price far lower than a whole new garage door.
Of course there are times when a garage door is beyond repair and replacement is the best choice. At AJ's Garage Door Service, even though we can fix almost any door, we don't hesitate to tell customers when their doors are beyond help.
If/when that time comes, we're happy to share the names of a few companies in town that we believe do good work installing new doors. But beyond that, you get no sales pitch from us. And that's something we've been thanked for more than a few times.

(*Only a partial transcript follows, due to length...)
Oro Valley, the valley of gold, encompasses a rich heritage that has shaped our modern vibrant community.
The town is centered along the Canada del Oro drainage that flows from the lofty Santa Catalina Mountains.
These mountains form the outstanding scenic backdrop to Oro Valley, one that has been an important landmark for centuries.
For more than a thousand years prehistoric people called Hohokam by archeologists lived along the Canada and it's tributary drainages.
The remains of three of their large villages exist today in the Oro Valley area.
The Honeybee village located above Honey Bee Wash near the Rancho Vistoso neighborhood and the Splendido retirement community was occupied between AD 500 and AD 1200.
Its residents built hundreds of houses in pits and a ball court for community gatherings.
A portion of this village is preserved for public use and historical interpretation by Pima County.
The Romero ruin in Catalina State Park also contains pit houses, two ball courts and extensive agricultural fields.
In the period of the 80s and 90s Oro Valley's population growth was significant.
In order to support a community moving from rural to suburban, from a bedroom community to a self-sufficient community, Oro Valley needed to expand services.
The town understood that sales tax revenue was going to Tucson, and an increase in local retail was vital.
The town site was intended for some town facility expansion but the citizens support for more recreational amenities created a master plan, including a community center Performing Arts facility and dog park. passive as well as active recreation space.

We Handle All Kinds of Garage Door Problems For You!
It's well known... when there's a problem and you need garage door repair, Oro Valley calls on AJ's!
Your garage door opener plays a critical role in the convenient use of your garage on a daily basis. Like many things associated with garage doors, you often don’t think twice about the opener (or operator, as it is called in the industry) - until it stops working properly. Because it’s a mechanical device, all garage door openers will eventually stop working properly. The typical life expectancy of a garage door opener is anywhere from 10 to 20 years, as long as the door itself is kept in decent working order.
When a garage door stops working, it’s common for people to assume that it’s the opener itself that is the problem. While this might be the case, it isn’t always true.
While a garage door can weigh hundreds of pounds, it isn’t actually the motor that should be doing the heavy lifting. Instead, it is the spring system that is the ‘muscle’ to move the door and the motor just moves things along. Kind of like working a jack on a car when you need to change a tire; your arm is moving the jack, but not actually lifting the weight of the car.
That being said, if there are problems with your garage door, like a broken spring or old, creaky parts that provide a lot of resistance to the door opening and closing easily, then the motor has to work extra hard. In such cases, you can expect the lifespan of your garage door opener to be much shorter than expected as various parts inside will wear out faster than normal.
There are a number of different manufacturers of garage door openers on the market, but most people are familiar with 3 main brands; LiftMaster, Craftsman and Genie.
Craftsman is the parent company of LiftMaster, with Craftsman being the ‘consumer’ or ‘retail’ arm that you might find at Home Depot. LiftMaster is the considerably more sturdy, professional version. While they are both excellent products, we only carry LiftMaster because we can confidently stand behind it after having installed literally thousands of these openers over the years.
Genie, on the other hand, is not a brand we personally recommend. We find them in quite a few homes as they tend to be a bit less expensive, but like so many things, you get what you pay for. We prefer to provide a product that won’t require us to return time and time again to repair or replace, just to save a few bucks.
While we only offer LiftMaster openers, we do offer customers a choice. We carry both chain drive motors for the more economically minded customer as well as the super quiet belt drive option. Both will give you years of reliable service and both come with wifi enabled options so that you can connect your smartphone to your opener with an app.
This technology is quite handy as it allows you to quickly check on your phone from anywhere whether your garage door is open or closed, and how long it has been that way. (Have you ever left home and suddenly wondered whether or not you remembered to close the garage? Now you don’t need to waste time turning around and going home to check! Just a quick peek at your phone and you’ll know. And if you did leave it open, you can close it right from your phone, no matter where you are. Pretty cool, right?)
Another nice benefit of this remote technology is that you can let someone in to your house remotely. For example, if someone wanted to borrow your golf clubs but you weren’t going to be home to hand them over, you could tell them to call you when they arrive, and you could open the door for them, then once they retrieved the clubs, you could close the door and secure your home again.
And finally, Amazon is rolling out an integration with this app so that, if you choose to, you can have them leave packages inside your garage for you. No more worrying about porch pirates stealing your packages!
