Door Closer Repair Service

Creating a great first impression is important for businesses. Often, a customer's judgment is made before walking through your door. Doors are the gateway to your business, and it's important that they are well-maintained. Glass Doctor® of Minot provides door closer care and maintenance services for commercial properties.

How Door Closers Work

Manual door closers allow doors to open easily and eliminate the need for them to be physically closed. When a door closer is properly installed, the user feels some resistance when the door is opened. After this initial resistance, the door glides open. When a user stops pushing against the door, the spring in the closer forces the mechanism's arm to close slowly and smoothly while returning to the frame.

Door Closer Repair

Incorrect Door Closers

The heavier the door, the stronger the springs in the door closer must be. When an incorrect door closer is installed, this leads to safety concerns, misalignments and damage to the door and the closer.

Improperly Installed or Adjusted Door Closers

When a door closer is not installed correctly, doorframe damage, misalignments or abnormal movements of the door can occur. The team of specialists at Glass Doctor of Minot utilize industry best-practices and come prepared to provide door closer care armed with the tools needed to correctly maintain commercial doors and increase their lifespan.

Seal Repairs and Low Oil Levels

A broken seal can lead to clearance gaps, damaged hardware and lubricant leaks. Oil leaks usually indicate a mechanical issue with the door closer, such as failed seals, a missing screw or damaged O-rings. Because a lack of lubrication can cause doors to open or close too quickly, it's important to have a professional replace the oil in a door closer.

Door is Difficult to Lock

When a door is difficult to lock, it causes more than a security risk. The issue also affects the well-being of the doorframe, the door closer and the locking mechanism itself.

Door Closer Maintenance Services

When a door is under warranty, having an untrained individual attempt to repair it may actually void your protection. The specialists at Glass Doctor of Minot receive extensive training on the installation, maintenance and repair of door closers. In addition to door closer care, Glass Doctor of Minot also provides care for door frames, glass, hinges, thresholds and other related hardware.
