San Jose Garage Doors | “Excuse me, but are you open today?”

We were surprisingly busy on Saint Patrick’s Day, and surprisingly, a lot of the customers that called in started their phone call the same way:

“Excuse me, but are you open today?  I really need you to come fix my opener.”

Are we open today?!  That really caught us off guard, not only because it was a Monday, but because we never close.

That’s right!  We’re always open and ready to serve you, so there’s no need having to ask that anytime you call in to us.

Plus, think about it:  If we’re answering the phone, I think the answer should be clear:  San Jose Garage Doors is open.

San Jose Garage Doors | Options for an Opener Upgrade

Most homeowners have the cheap, run of the mill chain drive garage door opener isntalled that makes quite a bit of noise.  What if you one of the smart homeowners that has decided they want a smoother, quieter operating garage door opener?  What are your choices?

  1. Belt Drive Opener, which operates in a very similar way to the chain drive, except it’s quieter and smoother.
  2. Screw Drive, which is heavy duty, ultra reliable, but could potentially be pretty noisy.
  3. Jack Shaft, which is for special applications–  We’ll write an entirely different blog post about that one of these days.

So, which one is right for you?  We usually recommend going with a belt drive–  More cost effective than a screw drive, and much quiet / smoother than a chain drive opener.  Ask us about garage door opener options today!

San Jose Garage Doors | Music Garage Door Techs Like

We’re interrupting your regularly scheduled informative blogs for a quick post geared more toward getting to know your garage door repair techs from San Jose Garage Doors!  This week’s topic:  What kind of music we like to listen to while working out in the field.

Well, personally, I like to listen to something pretty rockin’ with a pretty good beat.  A good example would be David Bowie’s “Suffragette City:”

Other techs like some more modern music, like “Pompeii:”

And then there’s my son–  He has terrible taste in music, but he likes to listen to video game music, like this bizarre song that he sent me:

I sometimes wonder what’s wrong with him, but then again, he knows garage door springs, so I’m proud of him!

San Jose Garage Doors | (800) 953 – 9805 | Vertical Clearance

With Hollister not far away, and plenty of places to take a four wheel drive rig within a day trip, a lot of our customers have a past time that requires a lot of vertical clearance in their garages.  Nothing wrong with that, except that a traditional garage door opener mounts to your ceiling and takes away from that precious clearance.  What if there was another way?

Lucky for you, there is.  Ask us about Jackshaft garage door openers that mount to the wall of your garage–  This maximizes vertical clearance in your garage door whatever it is that moves you!
