Garage Door Accident: Wall Repair and Garage Door Repair

We got a call from our client Jane that she was having a small problem with her garage door and we needed to get out there right away!

This is Jane’s small problem:

Yikes! Jane had accidentally pressed the gas pedal, not the brake pedal when driving out of her garage door that morning.

She ran into her garage door, as you can see. But she also hit the side wall of her house next to the garage door.

As you can see in the image above, there was a lot of damage to both her door and her wall. Thankfully we were able to fix both. Perfect Solutions owners are also licesned contractors, so we can perform this work together with our trust team of home repair experts.

After a few days, the garage door and wall were looking a little better:

We removed her garage door completely as well as the damaged wood and stucco from inside and outside the garage.

We then lifted the header and replaced all the damaged studs. We moved onto repairing the drywall, insulation and stucco of the outside of the home.

Once all that tough work was done, the door was reinstalled and primed.

The last step was painting the garage door a new color to complement the exterior of the home! Looks good!

Jane was admittedly a little embarrassed about her driving mistake, but was pleased that everything was repaired quickly, and she got to pick a new color for her door to give a new look to her home’s exterior.

We love painting garage doors, even ones that aren’t damaged, to give a simple, and cost-effective upgrade to a home’s curb appeal.

The most important thing is we repaired Jane’s garage quickly so she could feel secure in her home and have a safe place to park her car.

Double Garage Door Opener Project | Granite Bay, CA

What a fun and unique garage door opener installation project in Granite Bay!

Our customer, Josh, called us when his garage door opener broke. We figured it would be a straightforward fix but when we arrived, we knew we had a fun problem to solve.

Josh’s existing opener was VERY old. Most likely it was installed 15-17 years ago. On our advice, Josh decided to forgo the expense of repairing the opener and invest in a new one.

Josh’s garage space is interesting, as you can see in the picture below. There are actually 2 garage doors!

Originally, he had one opener to operate the garage door facing the road, but no opener serving the back door. The back garage door leads out to his garden and yard.

So the job was not just to replace the current opener with a new one, but also install a new system for the back door. This would allow Josh to open the door automatically instead of manually, which saves time and muscle!

The challenge here is that we didn’t have much clearance to install two openers. We had to get creative and eventually found a setup that allowed for two openers to be installed.

And we did all that in just a few hours! Josh was thrilled and is so excited to be able to open his back garage door with ease!

As you can see, we installed brand new LiftMaster openers. The specific model Josh chose: the LiftMaster 8355 series. It has built-in Wi-Fi, so he can operate the doors from his smartphone or tablet. The doors are belt drive openers, so they are maintenance free and very quiet!

We love LiftMaster openers as they are high quality for a great price. Read why we love LiftMaster in this post. We be these openers will last him another 15 years!
