BEWARE!

WARN YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND YOUR NEIGHBORS

Business Predator Alert – Over the last few years Southern California has been invaded by a few unscrupulous garage door companies who see this area as a “target rich” environment whereby they can line their pockets with ill-gotten gains obtained from trusting unsuspecting customers. This has been a source of great concern for us and the Garage Door Industry as a whole. About two years ago, this concern became personal when a company known for their shady tactics changed their name for the umpteenth time to Garage Door Services Co. and included GDS as part of their logo.

We were aware of the name change right off because we immediately began receiving complaints that were meant for them that were damaging our good name and reputation. This is not just our perception because a week rarely passes when we aren’t contacted by one of GDS’s victims who think we are the company that “ripped them off”. On top of that, we have had horrible reviews posted on the internet by people we have never worked for and in areas where we do not serve that are meant for them.

In spite of having their California Contractor’s License 927739 suspended for violations including unfair business practices, false misleading business practices, and elder abuse to name a few, they have again changed their name, this time to Garage Door Service and Repair and are at it again nationwide and especially in San Diego, Orange, and Riverside Counties. In fact, they are so successful luring in unsuspecting victims, with all of the money they make, they are able to totally dominate all forms of advertising. This domination is having a devastating effect on our business and other honest garage door companies.

The nationwide growth of GDS and the mountain of complaints against them has grown to the extent that a top garage door industry magazine, Door + Access Systems, published a feature article in their Fall 2015 issue. The cover page and the name of the article is:

GDS
THE WORST GARAGE DOOR COMPANY IN THE NATION
The entire article is located in the archive files of Door + Access Systems Magazine at the following website address below. Please take a few minutes to read the article here and then spread the news to everyone you know.

One of the terrible aspects of this whole situation in addition to the business we are losing is the innocent victims. Recently, February 3, 2016, while I was in the middle of writing this blog, we received a call from an elderly man in Moreno Valley, CA that was in the process of being victimized by this company. Although he was obviously being pressured, he had the presence of mind to call us to compare prices on several parts including a new garage door opener, new springs, and the list goes on and on. We tried to warn him that he was probably being taken advantage of but he hung up before we could find out if he sent them away.

So what are we going to do about the negative effect this is having on our business?
We are going to hang in there, pray a lot and keep taking care of our customers honestly and reliably just like we have since 1999. Next, we are going to keep fighting to get this company to either change their business model (rip off) or be forced out of business.

What can you, the consumer, do?

• Above all, please continue to call us for all of your garage door and garage door opener needs or issues. We treat you like family because you are.
• Warn your family, friends and neighbors about this and other companies like GDS. In reality, the most effective way to be rid of companies like GDS is for people to not call them or hire them in the first place. It seems like as soon as one head gets cut off another one grows in its place. Cutting off their income stream and starving them out is the only sure way to be rid of these predators.
• If you don’t hire us, always hire a California State Licensed Contractor. If you are not familiar with the company, check for complaints against the contractor at the Contractor State License Board at: http://www.cslb.ca.gov/. (Our license number is 822515).
• Check reviews on Google, Yelp or Angie’s or other reliable sites. Look for a repeat pattern of bad or low reviews and if you see it, don’t hire them. You can check out our reviews, here.
• Contact the Better Business Bureau to check the rating of the company you are proposing to hire. Our Rating is A+ and is certified by the BBB on our website. http://www.garagedoorspecialistsinc.com/about/credentials.php
• Remember, if the cost of the repair exceeds the cost of a new standard 24ga garage door. ($900+-) you probably need to call someone for a second opinion.
• If you suspect that you or someone you know has been victimized, call to report it. One victim called us, and we were able to help them get their money back.

Please pass this information along anyone you think may need to know. Let’s eliminate these predators once and for all.

Are you trying to save money by ignoring your garage door’s maintenance needs? Have you put off replacing a broken garage door component? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you are taking a safety risk. Injury is always possible with any mechanical mechanism as large as a garage door, even when it’s in perfect working order. However, the risk of injury increases substantially when your garage door is broken or hasn’t been inspected in years. Here are four possible safety risks:

The Garage Door Safety Fails To Stop The Door While Closing
Your garage door has a built-in safety mechanism that prevents it from closing on something or someone in its path. This mechanism relies on a photoelectric eye that senses a light beam source on the opposite side of the door. A person or object in the way of the closing door breaks the light beam, which stops the door. The light source and photoelectric eye are likely to be inoperative if the garage door hasn’t been checked in years. Something as simple as dirt, leaves, or cobwebs can interfere with its operation.

The Garage Door Drops Down Its Track
This can happen if a cable or garage door spring breaks. If the door is partially open, the remaining spring may not be able to hold the weight of the door causing it to drop to the floor. Hopefully, there is nothing or no one in its path.

The Garage Door Drops Off Its Track
There are a number of ways this can happen. If the door hangs at an angle and is moved, that may be enough for it to pop out of its tracks. Sometimes several bad rollers may cause uneven motion or lurching of the door, which causes a cable to jump off the cable drum. This makes the door hang unevenly which may cause it to drop out of its tracks. A broken spring or cable may also cause a door to drop. Remember that a garage door weighs several hundred pounds, and anyone underneath it while it’s in the open position is at risk.

The Garage Door Reversal Force Is Too High
In addition to the photoelectric eye mentioned previously, the garage door has a reversal mechanism that reverses the door when it encounters an obstacle. If the force setting is too high, then it can do serious harm to someone trapped beneath it even though it reverses off a 2×4 piece of wood lying on the floor. You can test the force setting by holding the bottom of the door using a 2×4 in your hand as it closes. The door should quickly reverse on contact. If it keeps closing, it requires adjustment.

Unlike the other doors in your house, which are relatively small and attached to simple hinges, your garage door is a large, heavy, and complicated machine and all machines break down when they aren’t properly maintained. If your garage door requires a maintenance check or needs repair, contact a garage door contractor.

If you’re looking for garage door maintenance in the Laguna Niguel CA area, give Garage Door Specialists a call!

Garage Door Safety is always a full time 24/7 job for all of us around here, but June is the month that the Garage Door Industry adds extra emphasis to SAFETY. In an aggressive move, we have teamed up with LiftMaster Garage Door Openers and hundreds of garage door dealers across the US and Canada and have Declared War on garage door openers that do not meet the standards the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) enacted into law in 1993. To ensure the highest degree of safety and customer satisfaction it is important that pre-1993 garage door openers are replaced as opposed to being repaired.

Since we strongly believe that any preventable injury caused by your garage door or garage door opener is too big a price to pay to keep your old clunker garage door opener running, we have decided to not provide repair on any existing pre-93 openers that do not meet current requirements.
Oh but new Garage Door Openers are so expensive” you may be saying. Well, actually, that is not the case. In fact, the price for an opener in 1994 cost more than one today (using 1994 dollars). Let’s put it another way – (I am definitely not a math genius so bear with me.) One of our best garage door openers, the LiftMaster 8550 Belt Drive sells for $460.00 including tax and installation. On average the garage door is opened and closed (one cycle) 7 times a day. Multiply that by 365 days a year for 10 years, the cost per cycle is only $0.02 per cycle. And that is for a quiet, dependable “top of the line” garage door opener. Think about it!
Another important ingredient for garage door safety is periodically checking the operation and safety of your garage door. Naturally, we recommend having a Licensed Garage Door Professional like us perform the task annually to ensure that your garage door is in tip top condition. However, if you are one of those “do it yourselfers” there are things you can do to keep your door safe and sound. I have included some below.
Whatever you do, doing nothing is not the solution.   Don’t Chance It. Check It.
If you want more information about Garage Door Safety, follow the LiftMaster Link here: http://www.liftmaster.com/lmcv2/garagesafety.htm. While you are at the site, take time to enter the drawings for hundreds of prizes including a garage makeover.

Don’t Chance It. Check It.™

You may not be able to see or hear it, but your garage door opener may not be operating properly or even safely. Don’t Chance It. Check It.™ using the LiftMaster 3-Step Safety Check:

  • Check the sides of the garage door for properly installed photo eyes (black sensors), mounted no higher than 6 inches off the floor.
  • Block the photo eye with an object over 6 inches tall, and press the garage door opener’s close button. The door should not close.
  • Lay an object that is at least 1.5 inches higher on the ground in the door’s path, and press the close button. The door should reverse off this object.

If your Garage Door Opener does not pass any of these steps, call us immediately.

We recently received information and brochures from our garage door manufacturer, C.H.I, introducing their exciting new products “Accents Images” and “Accents Logo’s” which are an available option on several models of their new garage doors. As I was reading all about it, my first thought was WOW, this is just what we (men) need to make the perfect Man Cave.

 As I was preparing to write this article it occurred to me that many readers may not have any idea about what a Man Cave is so I decided to gather information on the internet by surfing on Yahoo. I hit the jackpot!  I saw everything from cool to weird.

The first thing that caught my attention was the definition of Man Cave on Wikipedia.  According to their definition:                                                      

A Man Cave or man space, is a male sanctuary, such as a specially equipped garage, spare bedroom, media room, or basement.  It is a metaphor describing a room inside the house where “guys can do as they please” without fear of upsetting any female sensibility about house decor or design. Paula Aymer of Tufts University calls it the “last bastion of masculinity”.

Man caves have multiple purposes: they are a place to be alone, to be away from women and from female sensibilities, to indulge in hobbies, and to hang out with male friends. It is, loosely, a male-only space to retreat to watch sports, or play video games.  According to Psychiatrist and Author Scott Haltzman, it is important for a man to have a place to call his own, referring to a male area in which to retreat. Some psychologists claim that a man cave can provide refuge from stressful surroundings and be beneficial to marriage. Rules are relaxed; it is a place where other people’s sensibilities about standards of cleanliness are not necessarily observed; as one man said, “You spill a beer there or leave a hamburger overnight, who cares?”

 One of the perks of my job is that over the years I have had the opportunity to see some pretty elaborate Man Caves.  However until C.H.I introduced the Accent Images Line about the only thing that was done to the garage door was to possibly powder coat the hinges and track or paint it black.  More often nothing special was done.  That is all changed now and the door is wide open for decorating your Man Cave garage door.  (Actually, it is better to view the scene with the door closed unless you like to crank your neck to look while the door is open.)

In addition to the Accent Images line, C.H.I just introduced the Major League Baseball (MLB) Logo line which affixes your favorite team logo on the inside of your garage door.  (I suppose you could have it on the outside of the door if you could convince your neighbors and your wife to let you put it on the outside of the cave.) The new MLB Logo’s are so new that the pictures are not yet available on the C.H.I website.

Last Wednesday thru Saturday April 23-26,2014 my wife Toni and I attended the annual International Door Association (IDA) Expo in Las Vegas and had the opportunity to see the latest and greatest in garage doors and garage door openers and accessories.  C.H.I was one of the top attractions of the show displaying their Accents Images and Logo’s line.  This was my first opportunity to see the product in person and I was impressed.  The image or logo was made right onto the door.  It wasn’t a decal or sticker, it was manufactured right on the doors and the workmanship was flawless.  I decided right then and there that as soon as I got all of my grown children’s “stuff” out of my garage I was going to make a man cave.  Now all I have to do is select the scene or logo. (And convince Toni that a Man Cave is a good idea.)

We will display the new images and logo’s on our website as soon as they are available.  Naturally, if you are interested in receiving more information about these garage doors or garage door openers, just give us a call.  In the meantime, here are a few more available scenes below.

If you have a Man Cave I would love to have a picture of it.  Email them to steve@garagedoorspecialistsinc.com and I will publish them on the blog.

Happy spelunking men.

Don't Chance It Logo small

Garage Door Specialists, Inc. a licensed California Garage Door Contractor with offices in Murrieta and Temecula, California is pleased to announce that we are one of the first Garage Door Dealers in Southern California to become a LiftMaster® Certified Safety Check Dealer.  

Garage Door Specialists has been providing Garage Door and Garage Door Opener Service and Repair in Orange County, Riverside County and North San Diego County since 1999 including the cities of Mission Viejo, Laguna Niguel, Lake Forest, Huntington Beach, Corona, Norco,   Riverside, Hemet, Menifee, Murrieta, Temecula, Rancho Bernardo, Poway, San Marcos and Vista.

It is estimated that one out of every 15 garage door openers may lack safety features or may not be operating properly, which equates to millions of garages across the U.S. that may require added attention from the homeowner or even a professional. There is no better time to ensure the heaviest and largest moving object in the home, the garage door, is the safest it can be.

LiftMaster®, the number one brand of professionally installed residential garage door openers with more than 4,000 Dealers across the country, is introducing the Don’t Chance It. Check It.™ Safety Campaign. This nationwide initiative strives to provide invaluable information, such as an easy Three-Step Safety test homeowners can perform to keep their families safe from malfunctioning garage doors.

Do You Have an Eye on Safety this Season?

From a luxury item to a household necessity, automated garage door openers have evolved over the years. As adoption has increased, so have safety standards. Since 1993, all automatic openers manufactured for the U.S. must include a safety reversing feature such as infrared sensors or “photo-eyes.”  Photo-eyes are a secondary safety measure that ensures the door never makes contact with anything under it when performing properly.

The photo eye sensors are installed near the floor on either side of the garage door opening.  Once the invisible laser beam between the two sensors is broken by an obstruction, the door reverses automatically. For example, if a young child, the elderly or a small pet crosses under the closing door, it will automatically reverse BEFORE making contact. Ensure your garage is safe and check out how to test your garage for the latest safety features.

Find Out How Your Garage Door Measures Up

STEP 1:  Check to make sure your garage door opener is equipped with photo eyes. If your opener lacks a similar safety reversing feature, it’s time to get a new opener.  Properly installed photo-eyes (black sensors) should be mounted no higher than six inches off the floor.

STEP 2: Block the photo-eye with an object over six inches tall and press the garage door opener’s close button. The door should not close. If it does, you need to call a garage door professional like Garage Door Specialists, Inc.

Do you know about The Six-Inch Rule? The photo eyes mentioned above should not be installed higher than six inches above the garage floor. If the eyes are installed higher, a person or pet could get under the beam and not be detected by the photo-eyes.

STEP 3: Test your door’s sensitivity. A correctly installed garage door opener will automatically retract after making contact with an object. This is the primary safety device installed in U.S- manufactured garage door openers. As a homeowner, you want both safety systems (primary and secondary -photo eyes) to be performing perfectly.

  1. Lay an object that is at least 1.5 inches in height flat on the ground in the door’s path and press the close button. Household objects this size might be a bar of soap, stack of index cards, a hardcover book or a wood 2”x4” laid flat in the center of the door.  The door should reverse off this object. If it makes contact and does not reverse, the door is not operating correctly.
  2. Record your results and contact a LiftMaster Garage Safety Expert in your area to seek guidance on next steps so this vital entrance is safe and secure.
  3. Visit www.garagedoorspecialistsinc.com  or call 877-413-0880 to speak with a Garage Door Safety Professional.
  4. Make a habit of performing these safety checks whenever you test your smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector, and keep your garage, home and family safe.

Check the Door from Ceiling to Floor

             Maintenance. To keep the garage door properly maintained and functioning safely, be sure to keep all moving parts of the door clean and lubricated, including the steel rollers.

             Balance. To check balance, start with the door closed and pull the opener release mechanism so you can maneuver the door by hand. If the door is balanced (properly spring-loaded and running freely on its tracks), you should be able to lift it smoothly without much effort and it should stay open about three or four feet above the floor.

             Prepare for Weather. Be prepared as seasonal storms may lead to power outages. Once power is lost to the home, an automatic garage door opener will also be impacted. Ensure your opener is equipped with a Battery Backup system which continues to operate LiftMaster openers for an additional 40 up and down cycles. So, even during unforeseen outages, homeowners have peace-of-mind that their main entranceway to the home reliably opens and closes.

Organizing the Inside Out

             Oil Out. The garage usually tops the basement or attic for clutter and debris. Keep it clear of oily and greasy rags as they are easily flammable and can ignite spontaneously. Keep a fire extinguisher nearby.

             Dust Up. It may seem like you’re adding to the mess, but grass clippings are great for keeping dust under control in your garage.  Next time you mow your lawn, sprinkle your fresh lawn clippings on the garage floor then sweep it clean. 

             Shelf It.  Better organization of lawn equipment, sporting goods and bicycles is also crucial to a presentable garage. Install shelves and hooks to lift things off the floor and maintain order. Get in the habit of putting things back where they belong after use and regularly sweeping up.

LiftMaster is the number one brand of professionally installed residential garage door openers and gate operators, as well as a major manufacturer of commercial door operators, residential and commercial gate operators, telephone entry systems and related access control products.  Driven by the access and security needs of the marketplace, LiftMaster’s expansive line of state-of-the-art residential and commercial products are designed to fit any lifestyle or application, providing consumers with the latest technology and innovations in safety, security and convenience.  To learn more about the LiftMaster family of products please visit www.garagedoorspecialistsinc.com or call 877-413-0880.

DON’T CHANCE IT. CHECK IT.™ — TAKE PREVENTIVE MEASURES

TO KEEP YOUR GARAGE AND FAMILY SAFE

National Campaign Launches Encouraging Families to Take Three Simple Steps to Check the Overall Safety of their Garage Doors

                                                 

              Elmhurst, IL – Nov. 4, 2013 – Garages continue to serve as a major hub of activity in the modern household, often becoming the primary entry point into the home and a storage center for everything from soccer balls to snow blowers.  But, with one out of every 15 garage door openers lacking the latest safety features[1], there is a hidden threat in millions of households across America.  To avoid injuries from the largest and heaviest moving object in the home, LiftMaster – the number one manufacturer of professionally installed garage door openers in the world – is announcing its national “Don’t Chance It. Check It.™” Garage Safety Initiative.  

              Once considered a luxury item, automatic garage door openers are now installed in 35 million households across the country, with more than 70 percent of homeowners relying on their garage door as the main access point to the home. As more and more garage door openers made their way into American homes over the last several decades, laws were enacted to ensure the safety of those using them. However, prior to 1993, protection systems, such as infrared sensors or “photo-eyes” that stop a garage door before making contact with an object or person – were not mandatory.

              Instead, garage door openers were equipped with force-sensing safety systems that only reverse the door after it makes contact with an object. These older models can be safe and reliable if installed, tested and maintained properly. But unless they’re retrofitted with photo-eyes, the vast majority of these older units still are not up to today’s standard in safety.

              “Millions of garages lack the latest safety features, like photo-eyes or may not be operating properly,” said Bob Markwart, President, LiftMaster, Americas. “We believe it is our industry’s responsibility to do our best to ensure everyone is educated on what makes a garage truly safe. LiftMaster’s ‘Don’t Chance It. Check It.’ initiative helps families ensure everything is in working order with the largest moving object in the home by providing three easy-to-follow safety tests that use everyday household items and only two minutes of time.”

              The program, currently rolling out to a national audience, is designed to help homeowners and families understand how to check their door and make sure they have the safest garage door opener system in place. Follow these three easy steps to ensure safe functionality of any automatic garage door openers installed after 1993 or retrofitted with safety eyes:

1.   Check the sides of the garage door for properly installed photo-eyes (black sensors), mounted no higher than six inches off the floor.

2.   Block the photo-eye with an object over six inches tall and press the close button on the garage door opener. The door should not close.

3.  Lay an object that is at least 1.5 inches in height flat on the ground in the door’s path and press the close button. Household objects this size might be a bar of soap, stack of index cards, or a hardcover book.  The door should reverse off this object. If it makes contact and does not reverse, the door is not operating correctly.

               After recording the results, homeowners are encouraged to contact Garage Door Specialists, Inc. a Liftmaster Certified Safety Check Dealer to seek guidance on how to keep this high traffic area safe and secure. For further assistance or to learn how to upgrade a garage door opener, homeowners can visit our website at www.garagedoorspecialistsinc.com or call 877-413-0880 to speak to a Safety Check Professional at Garage Door Specialists, Inc.

During the last month or so, I have been planning a series of posts about Garage Door Safety that would start in January 2014. That planning intensified after a call I received from one of our customers in Orange County two weeks ago.

Before I get to my conversation with the customer, allow me to give you a little background. This customer is the proud owner of a beautiful 16’x8′ Custom Wood Carriage House Door. This door weighs in excess of 800 lbs. and it takes four large and powerful springs to counterbalance the weight. We previously changed the springs on the door about fifteen months earlier after one of the old springs broke after five years of use.

Ok, now back to the story – The customer called, and I answered the phone. He explained that the springs on his door needed to be adjusted because his garage door opener was struggling to open the door. While I was trouble shooting the problem with him on the phone I inquired if the door was hard to lift manually after releasing the opener by pulling the release cord. His response to me was “oh, I wouldn’t know because I don’t know how to release the opener.” At that point, my trouble shooting ended, and I started making arrangements for an appointment with one of our expert technicians.

During the appointment setting process I quoted an estimate of how much the appointment would cost based on what I knew at the time (approximately $100) and he made a statement that took my breath away; “you know”, he said, “I think that I will adjust the springs myself”.

I panicked and immediately started trying to get him to change his mind. I assured him that that would be the worst decision he could make and reminded him that even our trained technicians are in a high state of caution when they are servicing these heavy doors. I also related the story of another customer that had attempted to repair his off- track door by taking the bracket holding the “loaded” cable off. While taking it off, it flew up and hit him in the face on it’s way up causing over $30,000 in doctor and plastic surgery bills.

By that time in the conversation I was really wound up and told him about another customer’s wife that called to schedule an appointment after her husband had lost his little finger while trying to adjust his garage door springs.  I could go on with stories like this for several pages, but I will stop here.

This story had a favorable outcome when he scheduled the appointment.  As it turned out,  there was nothing wrong with the garage door or the springs.  The problem was the garage door opener.  This particular opener was undersized for the weight of the door, and was no longer able to lift the door.  We replaced it with a New LiftMaster 3/4 HP heavy duty garage door opener and now all is well and the customer is still in one piece.

What’s the bottom line to this story?

Don’t work on your (or your neighbor’s) garage door other than lubrication and safety checking (which will be discussed on the next post).  Loaded springs are dangerous, and a garage door not properly repaired is an accident waiting to happen and could even fall and crush someone or something under it.  Call the experts, a Licensed Garage Door Contractor, or better yet, call the “best”, Garage Door Specialists.
