Powell is a city in the U.S. state of Ohio, located 14 miles (21.5 km) north of the state capital of Columbus. The city is located in Delaware County; a frequent placeholder on the List of highest-income counties in the United States, and 35th wealthiest county in the United States in 2020. Powell had an estimated population of 13,375 in 2019, up from 11,500 at the 2010 census. Founded in the early 1800s, it is now a growing suburb of Columbus. Per the U.S. Census Bureau, 73.5% of Powell residents over the age of 25 are college graduates, the median home value is $372,700, and the median household income is $157,149. In 2018, the median list price of a home within the City of Powell was $411,173.

Present-day Powell is located on land that was once a vast wilderness sparsely populated by Native Americans including the Huron, Wyandot, Miami, Delaware, Ottawa, Shawnee, Mingo, and Erie people. The region was surveyed by French Canadian and European explorers beginning in the 17th century; with Great Britain, France, and the Iroquois League claiming ownership of the land during periods of the 1600s and 1700s. By the 18th century, the land became part of that what is historically known as Ohio Country. During the American Revolution, the states of Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia claimed portions of the land during western expansion of the United States. The Land Ordinance of 1785 opened up the region to settlement by American pioneers, including veterans of the American Revolutionary War who had received bounty land warrants as compensation for their services. In 1787, the region was established as the Northwest Territory.

The first settlers arrived in present-day Powell on May 1, 1801. At the time, the land was deeded to Thomas R. Hall. By 1813, records indicate that the settlement became known as "Middlebury", in possible reference to early settlers having come from Middlebury, Connecticut. Today, Powell maintains references to its heritage as Middlebury with multiple streets and housing developments applying the name.

The population of Middlebury remained small, with historical records suggesting that settlers held trades and occupations consistent with other small towns of time period. The settlement included farmers, milliners, buggy makers, and blacksmiths. In 1839, deed owner Thomas R. Hall purchased additional nearby land, and later opened a general store. Middlebury was renamed for him in 1850, becoming "Hall's Corner". According to historical records, a variant of this new name has been recorded as "Hall Corners". In 1857, Hall's Corner applied for an official post office, which required the approval of a judge. The village was renamed Powell in honor of the judge who approved the request.

The Columbus and Toledo Railroad (C&T) arrived in Powell in 1872, which provided new opportunities for settlers. The primary purpose of the railroad was to transport coal from Appalachia to regions beyond Columbus. After merging with two other railroads in 1899, C&T became part of the Hocking Valley Railway. As of 2021, much of the line still operates as the Columbus Subdivision freight line, owned by CSX Transportation.

Powell was finally incorporated as a municipality in 1947, and was later known as the Village of Powell. The population remained small until the late 1980s, when residential development expanding from the northern Columbus metropolitan area reached Powell. In 20 years, the population grew almost 1,500%, from 378 to over 6,000. In 2000, Powell officially became a city.

Between the years 2000 and 2010, Powell's population nearly doubled again, largely due to the 2002 annexation of approximately 1,000 acres along the Sawmill Parkway extension north of Seldom Seen Road for the development of the Golf Village community.

On February 21, 1995, Powell Village Council members voted 5-1 in favor of an ordinance requesting Delaware County Commissioners withdraw the Village of Powell from Liberty Township, with Councilman Bill Nolan dissenting. The decision was made without soliciting a community vote, which prompted residents to mount a referendum drive in hope of placing the separation issue on the November ballot. The separation of Powell from Liberty Township would have left the Village without fire department services, and would have impacted master planning efforts of the community. Proponents of the separation insisted that Liberty Township was too dependent on inside millage; the approximately $95,000 yearly that Powell residents were paying into Liberty Township's general fund.

Powell Village residents needed 74 signatures to place the issue on the November ballot. A group of residents from The Chase and The Retreat subdivisions collected 179 signatures and submitted them to village clerk Doris Moore, on March 8, 1995. However, the Village Council refused the petition, citing a technicality with Ohio Revised Code section 731.32. Dan Boyle, organizer of the referendum movement and then president of The Chase Homeowner's Association, insisted that the petition had been properly executed according to local charter section 6.10, entitled "Initiative and Referendum Petition Procedures."

Following the Council's decision to refuse the petition, Powell resident and attorney Lawrence Walker urged Delaware County Commissioner W. Duncan Whitney and Powell Mayor Jane VanFossen to take action. Mayor VanFossen ultimately decided that the Clerk of Council failed to perform her obligation of processing the petition, an action that therefore voided the separation legislation of the Council; Ordinance No. 93-54. Due to significant public interest generated in the wake of the petition, Powell's Village Council agreed to place the issue on the ballot of the August 8 special election. Of the 384 residents in Powell that voted on the separation, 98 (26%) voted for the separation, and 286 (74%) voted against the separation. Powell was subsequently not removed from the Township, and an amicable relationship between the City of Powell and Liberty Township has continued ever since.

The Powell Liberty Historical Society (PLHS) was formed in 1986 during a successful effort to save an 1889 farm house amid a rapid influx of housing developments. Local residents Louise Cornish and Janet Masteller led the campaign to save and restore the 1889 home; considered to be an example of midwestern architecture of the late 19th century. The house is called the Martin-Perry House, in honor of the only two families to have lived in the home. PLHS is located on Powell Road at Grace Drive, and has been open for tours since 1990. The society is a non-profit, volunteer organization that preserves the history of Powell and Liberty Township.

Powell is located at 40°09′30″N 83°04′27″W / 40.158217°N 83.074252°W / 40.158217; -83.074252. The city sits between the Scioto and Olentangy Rivers, about 14 miles (21.5 km) north of the state capital of Columbus, centered on the intersection of State Route 750 and C.R.9; known as Liberty Street within the City of Powell. This intersection is commonly referred to by residents as the Four Corners. It sits within Liberty Township, the site of the first settlement in Delaware County, Ohio. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 4.93 square miles (12.77 km), all land.

There are many residential subdivisions in Powell. In 1974, the first home was built in The Retreat, marking the development of Powell's first subdivision. The Retreat was designed to include all custom-built homes on wooded lots of at least one acre; arguably the largest lots in Powell. It wasn't until the 1980s that growth from the Columbus Metropolitan Area reached Powell, spurring the development of additional subdivisions. In addition to The Retreat, most of the original subdivisions developed in the late 1980s are found just west of the Olentangy River, off Powell Road. These include The Chase, Cardinal Hill, Deer Run, Bartholomew Run, Falcon Ridge, and Olentangy Ridge. Throughout the 1990s, development continued on Ashmoore, The Lakes of Powell, Powell Place, Grandshire, Liberty Ridge, Liberty Hills, and the Woods of Sawmill. Beginning in 1998, development shifted to Big Bear Farms, Chamber's Glen, Golf Village, and Middlebury Estates.

In April 2001, following the sale of 100 acres of land between Sawmill Parkway and South Liberty Street, development began on Murphy's Crossing and Murphy's Park in south-central Powell. The acreage had previously been home to the Powell Speedway racetrack and Murphy's Party Barn. From 2002 to 2015, residential development shifted predominantly toward northwest Powell, including Golf Village, Rutherford Estates, Woods of Powell North, and Woods of Powell South, among others.

In 2016, the Building Industry Association of Central Ohio (BIA) hosted its annual Parade of Homes in the newly built Verona subdivision, off West Powell Road. The community was developed by Romanelli & Hughes on the site of the former Shamrock Golf Course, and features 112 single-family homes and 54 Patio Homes. Previously, the BIA Parade of Homes had been hosted in Powell in 1985 and 1987, both times in the Olentangy Ridge subdivision.

Not all addresses within the Powell 43065 zip code are located within the municipal boundary of Powell. Due to Powell's suburban location, there are numerous subdivisions found just outside the physical boundaries of The City of Powell that share Powell mailing addresses. These subdivisions are found in the Powell Postal City Area, even though they are geographically located in portions of Liberty Township. In this case, the residents of these outlying subdivisions may still consider themselves to be Powell residents due to their USPS mailing addresses instead of their geographic location; a phenomenon acknowledged by The Census Bureau.

Loch Lomond, off Olentangy River Road, began development in the late 1980s, followed by the subdivisions of Sherborne Mews and Daventry Park in the early 1990s.

Just to the west of The City of Powell, The Wedgewood Golf & Country Club opened in 1991, boasting more than 440 single family homes. The private facility features a 49,500 square foot clubhouse, fitness center, swimming complex, and dining room, as well as an 18-hole golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, II. In 1993, Wedgewood hosted the BIA Parade of Homes. In 2016, Wedgewood hosted the US Open Sectional Qualifier.

In 2001, residential development expanded east of the Olentangy River to include the subdivisions of Riverbend and Deep Run. By 2017, development had largely been completed at River Run Estates, a private, gated community off Jewett Road. By 2021, work had largely been completed on Loch Lomond Hills, a luxury condominium community developed by Cugini & Capoccia Builders, one of the first of its kind for the Powell area.

Notably, the two ultra-luxury subdivisions of Woodland Hall and Wingate Farms were built across the postal limits of Powell and Delaware, Ohio. Roughly half of the single-family homes in these neighborhoods have postal addresses in Powell, while the remainder have Delaware County addresses.

As of the census of 2010, there were 11,500 people, 3,796 households, and 3,227 families residing in the city. The population density was 2,332.7 inhabitants per square mile (900.7/km2).

Powell is a bedroom community north of Columbus. Powell contains various trade areas and commercial zones that offer job opportunities for locals, but more than 90% of taxpayers commute to other municipalities for their employment.

On February 5, 2019, the Powell City Council approved multiple ordinances to allow Ohio State University's Wexner Medical Center to develop an Outpatient Surgery Center near the intersection of Sawmill Parkway and Home Road. The land for the project was annexed into Powell by a 6-1 council vote, with Councilman Brendan Newcomb dissenting. The development is expected to have a significant economic impact on Powell, and is forecast to bring hundreds of high paying jobs to the city in multiple phases.

Powell is subject to jurisdiction by The Ohio Department of Health. Due to spreading cases of COVID-19, a State of Emergency was declared in Ohio on March 9, 2020. On March 15, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine enacted numerous statewide responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, including curfews and capacity restrictions. The first case of COVID-19 to be diagnosed in Delaware County occurred on March 18, 2020.

Powell's local government committee meetings were suspended on March 10, 2020; later to be held via Zoom video conferencing. Powell's city buildings, parks, sport facilities, playgrounds, and community gardens remained closed until June. The annual Powell Festival was cancelled, and all Powell Parks & Recreation classes were suspended. Due to safety and financial implications, OSA's board of trustees decided to keep the Powell Pool closed for the entire 2020 swim season. The Olentangy Local School District suspended in-person classes beginning on March 16, 2020.

On October 15, 2019, Powell City Council unanimously approved the creation of Designated Outdoor Refreshment Areas (DORA) for use in 2020. The legislation allowed customers to purchase alcoholic beverages in marked cups from bars and restaurants for outdoor consumption on designated streets and sidewalks. Powell's DORA are an important way for residents to support local businesses.

Powell's local government is made up of city officials and staff, police and fire departments, and a variety of governmental agencies. The Powell City Council appoints specialized boards to address action items within the community. Some of these boards include the Powell Community Improvement Corporation, the Planning and Zoning Commission, the Historic Downtown Advisory Commission, and the Board of Zoning Appeals.

Powell is home to a nonprofit, private swim club located at Adventure Park (previously North Park), commonly referred to as the Powell Pool. The Powell Pool was constructed in 1995 after Powell residents Shawn Flahive, Brad Reynolds, Paul Pratt, and Bob Schaumleffel approached the Village Council about the lack of a community pool. The 9,500 square-foot pool was financed through initial membership fees, which ran at $1,000 per household, with the separate diving well added later. Original amenities at the Powell Pool included a 165 foot water slide, zero entry area with concrete umbrella fountain, toddler wading pool, and an eight lane lap pool. Prior to the construction of the Powell Pool, many residents utilized the historic Mt. Air Swimming Pool in Worthington, which was operational from 1928 until 1997. The Wyandot Lake water park was also located nearby; (now called Zoombezi Bay). Today, the Powell Pool is a community landmark.

The Powell Pool is the home of The Olentangy Swim Association (OSA) and the youth 'Tangy Tornadoes Swim Team. The team offers friendly competition with nearby country clubs and swim leagues, including the Muirfield Muirfins and the Upper Arlington Swim & Racket Club. Competition is offered for various age groups during the summer, from age 7 to 18.

In July 2022, The OSA Board of Trustees announced a "Save the Pool" campaign in effort to raise more than $250,000 for essential updates and repairs. Chronic leaks and cracked concrete have led to the need to replace the pool's entire concrete bottom. The Powell Pool is tied to a lease that puts all financial responsibility on its members, and receives no financial support from the City of Powell for pool operations. The project will take place in the fall of 2023, and will not impact the pool's summer season. Other updates have already taken place, including the renovation of the pool's restroom facilities, replacement of the pools pumps and motors, the removal of the pool's original concrete mushroom, and the purchasing of new chairs and umbrellas.

The City of Powell offers nine public parks, including Village Green Park, which is the location of the annual Powell Festival. Other parks include Adventure Park, Arbor Ridge Park, Library Park, Oak Park, Beechwood Park, Meadowview Park, Murphy Park, and Seldom Seen Park. The parks offer a wide range of sports facilities for basketball, volleyball, skating, tennis, pickle ball, and soccer. Additionally, Village Green Park offers a splash pad, concert amphitheater, playground, and pavilion shelters. Bike paths and multiuse trails connect many parks with the nearby subdivisions.

Powell is officially a city and is thus authorized by the laws of the State of Ohio to form a city school district. However, it instead continues to associate with the Olentangy Local School District. Powell is home to one of Olentangy Local School District's high schools, Olentangy Liberty High School, as well as Tyler Run Elementary. Olentangy Local School District received the highest rating of "excellent with distinction" on its 2020 report card from the Ohio Department of Education. Powell is also home to a kindergarten to grade 12 private college-preparatory school called Village Academy (closed summer 2019 due to a decline in enrollment).

Powell has a public library, a branch of the Delaware County District Library. The Powell Library is located in Library Park, just south of downtown Powell. The 5,000-square-foot branch offers thousands of books and free programming for children and Delaware County Residents.

Although Powell maintains its own police department, it is served by the Liberty Township Fire Department (LTFD), which has two stations less than a mile from the northern and western borders of the city. LTFD has been serving Powell since 1947, and both stations are maintained by a 24/7 staff of firefighters. Station 321 has a ladder, medic, and engine and other apparatus and is located on Liberty Road; Station 322 has an engine medic and air unit, they are located off of Sawmill Parkway, and they have a distinct slogan "First Due at the Zoo", because the Columbus Zoo is located almost a mile away.

 Residential Garage Door Installation in Powell, Ohio

Residential Garage Door Installation is a home improvement project that can add value to your property and make your life easier. A new garage door is also an important safety feature for your home, so be sure to invest in the latest technology.

Residential Garage Door Installation

Before deciding to install a new garage door, it's crucial to consider several factors: type of door, size and weather conditions. These will influence the time and labor costs for your project.

The most common types of garage doors include single panel, sectional and swing-out/sliding. Each type of door has its own unique features and benefits.

Single Panel

Composed of a single panel, a single-panel door is the least expensive to install. They're typically priced from $400 to $1,000, but can vary greatly depending on the style and manufacturer.


A swing-out or sliding door is a more common type of garage door and usually includes a curved section that can be opened like a regular door. They can be as costly as $1,000 to $2,000, but can add significant visual appeal to your home.


A sectional garage door is a popular choice and is the most commonly installed door in the United States. Each section of the door is connected with hinges that bend over a curved track. This allows the door to sit parallel to the ceiling when fully open and in line with the walls when completely closed.

Attach the upper and lower tracks to the wall with 5/16" x 1-1/2" lags. Ensure the upper and lower sections are parallel with the flag bracket at the top of the track. Next, secure the end bearing plate to the horizontal section with one 3/8" bolt. When tight, the flange should be even with the flag bracket and pointing away from the door.


To complete the bottom section, first attach the hinges with 2 lags per stile, even with the bottom corner of the door section. Then, slip the looped cable ends onto their studs on the bottom fixtures. Once that's done, lag the rollers on each of the stiles with two lags, leaving an extra 1/2" at each end.

Winding the Springs

To wind up the springs, insert a bar into the hole on the casting and crank it out and up until you feel the cast end begin to move inward toward the shaft. Then, turn down the set screws until they contact the shaft, then 1-1/2 to 2 turns more.

When you're finished, tighten the set screws until they're snug. This will give you a good idea of how well the springs are tensioned.

If you're installing a spring-tensioned door, be sure to use the right size springs. The stronger the springs, the more force they'll require to open and close the door. Using the correct springs will save you money over time and help your door last longer.

 Opener Repair in Powell, Ohio

If your garage door opener isn't opening all the way, making strange noises or not working at all, you need to have it repaired immediately. Having your opener repaired can save you money, ensure safe operation and increase the lifespan of the machine.

Garage Door Opener Repair Symptoms

If the door won't open all the way or make a loud noise, it's likely an issue with your motor or chain drive. We'll repair the motor or chain drive to restore function so you can use your garage door opener again with ease.

Usually this is an easy fix and can be done by anyone with basic DIY skills.

The most common cause of a broken garage door opener is a bad main gear drive. This is the plastic gear that comes in direct contact with the worm drive on your motor. If your garage door opener makes a grinding noise but the door won't move, it's probably time for this component to be replaced.

This is a bit more complicated than the other repairs in this article but still fairly simple to do by yourself.

Besides repairing the main drive gear, you can also fix the trolley carriage and the rail that attaches to it. You'll need to remove your opener's header bracket and disconnect the trolley from the motor and then slide off the old one and replace it with a new one.

Another simple and affordable repair to make is to replace the weather stripping around your garage door. This helps to seal the gap between your garage floor and the door, which can prevent your opener from slipping off its track.

You should have your door inspected at least once a year to make sure it's in good condition. It's also a good idea to have it serviced by a professional to ensure there are no problems with the tracks, rollers or springs that will cause damage to your door or opener.

A broken garage door opener can be dangerous. The opener's motor hoists a heavy door up and down the tracks multiple times a day, so it can exert an incredible amount of stress on the parts.

This can damage the tracks, causing them to bend or break. It can also make the door difficult to open and close.

Other possible signs that your opener needs to be repaired include a faulty keypad, remote control or wall control panel, damaged safety eyes, and a malfunctioning logic board. Having these components fixed or replaced by your Precision Garage Door Technician will help restore functionality and ensure your opener continues to operate safely.

Regardless of the type of garage door opener you have, Precision is always prepared to perform any necessary garage door opener repairs and maintenance. We have the tools and skills to provide quick and efficient service for a variety of brands, including LiftMaster, Wayne Dalton, Chamberlain, Genie, Stanley and more.

 Opener Installation in Powell, Ohio

The garage door opener is one of the most important parts of a garage door system. If it's not installed correctly, it can cause damage to other components and make your garage door more difficult to open and close.

How to Properly Install a Garage Door Opener

When buying an opener, choose the right type for your home — whether it's a belt-drive, chain-drive, or electric opener. The type of opener you choose should be based on the size of your garage and the style of the door it will be opening, as well as your budget.

1. Consider a Pro Installation

For heavy doors or those with tall, steep sides, it's best to hire a professional for opener installation. They'll be able to install the opener in a safe, fast, and efficient manner.

2. Check Your Spring and Rollers

It's a good idea to have a professional check out your current opener before installing a new one. They'll be able to diagnose any issues and ensure that your door is working properly.

If your door doesn't open as easily or loudly as it should, start by checking for broken or wobbly rollers and brackets. Also, check the torsion spring (mounted on the header above the door opening) for breaks in the coils. If you find a spring that is broken, replace it as soon as possible, or else your garage door may stop working completely.

3. Adjust Your Opening Force

If you have a manual opener, take a look at the instructions to see where the opening force adjustment screws are located. If the screw isn't in its proper position, turn it just a little to the left or right until you have the force you want.

4. Check Your Safety Systems

If your opener has a safety reverse system or an electric eye, it's important to make sure they're functioning properly. It's recommended to check them every month and readjust them if necessary.

5. Change Your Wires

If the wires that run from your opener to the photo eyes and the wall button are exposed, you should replace them with new ones. These wires have probably been in your garage for a long time and they're likely to be nicked or worn. It only takes about 15 minutes to run a new wire, but it's worth the cost and inconvenience to prevent damage to your garage door.

6. Test Your Remote Control

If you have a remote opener, test it to see if the button works. If it's not working, call a technician for repair or replacement.

7. Test Your Garage Door

Once you've had your new garage door opener installed, it's a good idea to test it out by opening and closing it manually. If you notice a significant amount of resistance when the door is opened, it could be caused by your finger getting caught in the track.

If you have any questions about your garage door or opener, don't hesitate to contact us at AAA Garage Door Inc. We'll help you get your door and opener in top working condition again.

 Spring Repair in Powell, Ohio

Garage Door Spring Repair Basics

Garage door springs are a major part of the operation of your garage doors. They extend and contract with the help of cables and pulleys to open and close the garage door. Unfortunately, they sometimes break, causing your garage door to either open or close improperly. If this happens, you can fix a broken spring yourself or call a professional. But before you start, it’s important to understand how they work and why they might need repair.

Torsion Springs

Torsion springs are used in most garage doors. They are mounted on the wall above the garage and extend or collapse with the help of cables and pulleys attached to the horizontal tracks that run through the ceiling of the garage. A damaged or broken torsion spring can cause the door to open or close erratically or not at all.

Depending on the size of your garage, you may have one or two torsion springs. If you have a single torsion spring, it will be attached directly to the door, while if you have a double torsion spring, it will be connected to the cable and pulleys in the track.

It’s a good idea to replace torsion springs as soon as they are damaged or break, and that includes the ones that are closest to the motor. If you do not, you could end up putting unnecessary stress on the motor and damaging it.

If you’re inexperienced with spring repairs, it’s a good idea to hire a professional. They have the proper tools and training to complete the job safely.

Compression Springs

Coil springs, which are found on many vehicles, work in conjunction with shocks and struts to maintain suspension movement. They absorb shock and force, allowing the truck to smoothly shift over bumps and dips on the road.

These springs are not only essential in a vehicle’s suspension, but they also help to prevent the wheels from rubbing together. If a coil spring is damaged or worn, it will not be able to do its job effectively, and your vehicle’s suspension will fail.

To keep your coil springs in tip-top condition, it’s a good idea to spray them with a silicone-based lubricant three or four times per year. This will keep them from rusting, which can significantly shorten their lifespans.

You should replace your coil springs in pairs—for example, both front coil springs—to ensure the entire car rides evenly. This will allow your vehicle to run at its best.

If you don’t know what type of spring your garage door requires, it’s a good idea to ask the professionals at White’s Automotive Center. They will be able to provide you with the right replacement springs for your specific model of door.

There are three common types of extension springs: open-looped, double-looped and clipped. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses, so it’s important to choose the right one for your needs. You can purchase replacement springs from your local hardware store or through a manufacturer. However, it is more cost-effective to buy them from a company that specializes in garage door springs. They will have them in stock and can easily answer your questions.

 Door Panel Repair in Powell, Ohio

Garage Door Panel Repair - How to Fix a Dent

Panels form the mainstay of your garage door, keeping it safe and secure while adding to its aesthetic appeal.

Garage doors come in a range of materials, such as wood. Depending on the style and material of your door, you may have several options for repairing or replacing its panels.

1. DIY: Do It Yourself

If you are experienced working with tools and can perform minor repairs on your own, fixing a damaged garage door panel may not be too difficult for you. However, be mindful of safety precautions and make sure all necessary tools are available.

2. If you don't know how to tackle it yourself, contact a professional who can take care of the task for you.

3. Repairing a Dent: When It's Possible

When your garage door panel has been dented, it may be more cost-effective and easier to repair the affected area than replace the entire panel. Dents can be caused by hailstones or other storm debris, physical objects like balls that get kicked into the door, or even just from impact from cars.

4. If you don't have access to a hammer or other tool, heating the dent may be enough to straighten it out in its upright position.

5. Metal doors with dent can be repaired using adhesive.

6. If your wooden door is older, you may need to replace the entire panel.

7. If the dent is minor, you can use aluminum foil to apply heat to it and restore its original look. This will help straighten out the area and restore your car's paint job back to new.

8. If the dent is extensive, you can hire a company to repair it for you.

9. The most frequent cause of garage door denting is accidental impact from a vehicle.

Denting in your panel can be both frustrating and irritating. It could also lead to other issues, such as the door buckling or damaging other components of the interior.

It can be challenging to tell whether your panel is actually broken or just showing signs of wear and tear, so take the time to inspect it regularly.

Once you determine how severely damaged a panel is, it's essential to get it repaired promptly in order to avoid further harm and extend the lifespan of your garage door.

Once you know how much it needs replacing, begin searching for a replacement panel that matches your garage door's size and shape. Aesthetics are usually top of mind when selecting a new garage door, so finding one that matches what you currently have can be an advantageous move.

Panel replacement costs can range anywhere from $200 to $800, so it's essential that you consider the total cost when making your decision. Include labor, setup and mobilization fees as well as any extra charges associated with hiring a general contractor to oversee the project.

If your garage door motor is malfunctioning, you likely want to get the problem resolved promptly. Unfortunately, fixing a damaged motor is no small feat; thus, calling in an expert instead of attempting the task yourself is recommended.

The initial step in fixing your garage motor is to take it away and its frame. Doing this is essential as a broken motor can cause extensive property damage as well as injury if not handled carefully.

Next, you must cut the power supply coming from your house to the motor unit. Do this by unplugging it from a power socket or using a screwdriver to release wires connected to the laser component.

Once the wires have been taken away, you can begin replacing parts of the garage motor. This task may take a few hours so make sure you have someone helping you throughout this process.

Additionally, you'll need to reprogram the new garage door motor. This is an often-forgotten step when replacing a garage door remote.

Belt drive garage door openers are slightly pricier than their chain drive counterparts, but they're much quieter and feature a battery backup. However, they require lubrication twice annually since these motors are sensitive to temperature changes and could break down sooner if not properly lubricated.

Another option is a screw-drive garage door motor, which utilizes a rotating screw rod to lift the door. While less noisy than chain drive units, they require regular lubrication and may be more susceptible to temperature changes.

On average, garage door motors last 10 to 15 years depending on its size and weight as well as how often you use it.

Your garage door is an integral part of the exterior design of your home. Not only does it provide secure storage for vehicles and other valuable items, but also adds to its visual appeal by helping define your property's overall appearance.

It's wise to check the tension of springs, as this can affect their lifespan and how much force they can handle. Most torsion springs can handle up to 10,000 cycles before breaking, while extension springs have a breaking strength of 20,000.

Broken springs can slam your garage door shut, putting both you and your vehicle at risk. Not only that, but they could damage the insulation of your door as well as lead to other issues; so be sure to get them replaced promptly if you notice signs of wear and tear.
