Door Closer Repair Service

Functioning door closers go beyond making a good impression on your clients. They are key to the safety of everyone using the building. To ensure yours are working properly, Glass Doctor® of Sarasota offers comprehensive door closer repair service.

Purpose of Door Closers

Heavy doors are excellent for enhanced fire safety and security in your building, but it is difficult to open a heavy door without the assistance of a door closer. With the correct door closer installed, users initially feel some resistance, giving them an awareness of the weight of the door. Then, the door closer takes away some of the pressure and the door glides open. Door closers also ensure doors stay shut by closing the door automatically after the user and sealing it to the frame.

When to Seek a Door Closer Repair

Entrust door closer repair to our team. We are familiar with a variety of door closer issues. When we survey your business, we will determine the best course of action for repair.

Incorrect Door Closer

Doors require closers that match their weight. A heavy door fitted with a closer with weak springs is dangerous to users, as it could break or become misaligned at any time. It could also cause damage to the door or closer, requiring a potentially expensive repair.

Improper Installation

Only trained professionals like the specialists at Glass Doctor of Sarasota can correctly install and adjust a door closer. If you try to complete the work yourself, you will not only void the warranty; you will likely decrease the lifespan of the door closer. Plus, this may lead to damage to the doorframe, misalignment, or unexpected movements by the door.

Low Level of Lubricant

An oil leak is usually due to a mechanical problem, such as a missing screw or broken O-ring. It may also be caused by a failed seal, which is especially problematic, as this leads to a clearance gap and exposes hardware to damage. Our specialists will fix the problem and return lubricant levels to normal to keep the door opening and closing at the right speed.

Locking Problems

Beyond jeopardizing security, locking problems cause damage to a door. They can lead to problems with the doorframe, door closer, or even locking mechanism itself. If you are struggling to lock a door, seek a door closer repair service from Glass Doctor of Sarasota.
