Gate Repairs

Gates and gate openers offer extra security to your home and when they break down you want to have a solution to fix them or to be able to access your property.

Often customers don’t know how to release their gates if the power goes out or the openers fail. We can show you how your system works in case of failure and if available organise the necessary keys or tools to place your system on manual operation.

If you have low voltage gate openers, we can offer a battery backup option so if the power goes out your gates will continue to operate long enough to operate them a few times.

If you don’t know how to place your gate openers on manual – don’t wait till it happens to organise a general service. Often bugs or ants like to make a home in your gate openers electronics – check for telltale signs and use a replant to keep them away. Otherwise, they will cause issues with the circuit board and other parts.

We are the go-to place for all your gate repair needs and specialise in new gate and gate opener installations. Here at Eastern Garage Doors, we will do our best to repair your old gate opener, but sometimes parts are unavailable! We can offer you some options possibly to update the electronics on your gate or quote you for new openers.

We offer a range of gate opener solutions and will discuss with you what solution suits your gates best.

Our friendly staff will make a time suitable to your needs, so you don’t have to wait around all day. We will always call if there is any variation in the appointment time.
