Door Closer Repair Service in Knoxville, TN

Before a customer enters your business, they have to pass through the front door. Without exception, great customer service always begins with a door that opens safely and smoothly, so it makes sense to keep your door closer in tip-top shape. The experts at Glass Doctor® of Knoxville offer comprehensive door closer repair and maintenance services, ensuring the safety of your door and all who pass through it.

How Door Closers Work

A manual door closer does a fairly simple job. However, it is accomplished using some surprisingly complex inner workings. Your door closer should allow an individual to open the door easily, without having to physically close it behind them. A properly installed and well-maintained door closer compensates for the door's weight, allowing the user to feel just enough resistance to get a sense of how heavy the door is. Once the user passes through, a spring in the door closer triggers the control arm to return the door gently to its frame.

Door Closer Repair

No one but a trained professional should ever make adjustments to your door closer. The specialists at Glass Doctor of Knoxville will carefully inspect your door closer for problems including misalignment or damage to the door closer, the door frame or the door itself. We will also make sure that your door closer matches the door it is installed on, in terms of size, weight and arm strength to prevent future problems.

Improperly Installed and Adjusted Door Closers

One of the most common problems are door closers that have been installed or adjusted incorrectly. The experts at Glass Doctor of Knoxville use specialized tools to test your door closer for problems and make adjustments if necessary. Our professional services will maximize the lifespan of your equipment and keep it in working order. Professional door closer repair is vital to preventing:

  • Damage to your door and door frame
  • Potential injury to customers
  • Door closer misalignment
  • Locking issues due to misaligned doors

Seal Repairs and Low Oil Levels

Broken seals are often related to oil leaks and low lubrication levels. They expose your door closer's internal hardware, leaving it vulnerable to damage and corrosion. Oil leaks may also indicate a mechanical problem, such as a broken O-ring, missing screw or failed seal. We will check and restore the oil level in your door closer, and find the source of the problem so that your door will continue to open smoothly.
