Your customers start forming their impressions of your business the moment they walk through your front door.

At Glass Doctor® of Mat-Su Valley, we know you want your guests to have a positive experience from the second they step foot in your business. Our service professionals ensure your door is open to new business with our comprehensive door closer repair service.
How Your Door Closer Works
Door closers are mechanisms that kick into action every time someone opens a door. Your door closer should include springs and a mechanical arm, which work together to provide some initial resistance before guiding the door open for visitors. After the door is open, the door closer gradually swings it back into place again, preventing a hard and unwelcoming slam.
Why Door Closers Stop Working
Your door closer springs must be strong enough to support your door, and the whole mechanism must be properly lubricated and aligned with your door and door frame. Regular maintenance is essential to keep this mechanism functional, and if your door is heavier than most commercial doors, you need a door closer with stronger springs.
Unfortunately, many businesses have door closers that are too weak to handle their heavy doors. Others have improperly aligned door closers, which may damage the door frame and lead to the door's abnormal and potentially dangerous movements.
