Owners Steve and Tammy Lewis of Superior Overhead Door in Broken Arrow have provided the highest quality products and services throughout northeastern Oklahoma since 2008.
When was the last time you thought about servicing your garage door opener mechanism or replacing the springs on your overhead doors? That long ago, huh? “Admittedly,” said Steve Lewis, owner of Superior Overhead Door, “most of us don’t maintain or service our garage doors, rollers, springs and related system parts until something breaks.”
“We recommend that you lubricate springs, rollers and hinges at six month intervals with a quality lubricant developed expressly for garage door systems,” said Steve. “Although our LiftMaster® garage door openers already operate very quietly, you’ll probably notice that opening the doors will be quieter and smoother when routinely serviced. The lubricant can improve performance and extend the life on chain-, belt- and screw-driven systems.”
Equipment generally seems to break down during the extreme temperature fluctuations of winter and summer. Now is a great time to have Superior Overhead do an inspection and provide recommend service. If your garage door springs are more than five or six years old, they should be replaced. Per Steve, that’s their expected life expectancy and it’s certainly better to replace them before rather than after they break. All garage door springs fatigue with use. “When you do need a spring replacement,” said Tammy Lewis, “we offer an option of an extended-life spring that extends spring life from the usual 10,000 cycles (open and close) to 25,000 cycles.” The price difference is not significant and is well worth it for all the value-added benefits.
Superior Overhead Door has a large variety of CloPay® doors designed to complement any home or style. They can be configured in multiple ways with design options, panel designs and hardware. Garage door insulation is also an option. “CloPay has received numerous awards for their energy efficient designs, curb appeal, innovation, best-in-category and best value,” said Steve. “They are the only residential garage door brand backed by the Good Housekeeping Seal.”
LiftMaster Garage Door Openers are unsurpassed in innovation and operation. “They deliver best-in-class performance and are equipped with top-notch, innovative features to simplify our lives while providing peace of mind,” said Steve. “These units are designed to perform and built to last.” The LiftMaster Elite Series provides smooth, trouble-free operation and has built-in battery backup that ensures access to your garage when the power goes out.
Customers appreciate how Steve and Tammy’s shop is meticulously clean and orderly and how their overall attitude translates into taking the utmost care and pride in every project they perform. All employees are company employed, not contracted. It’s important to know who’s coming to your home to provide service. Superior Overhead Door does sales, installations, repairs, spring replacements, tune ups and all related services for any garage door brand or model. Call to schedule a time to inspect and service your garage door system.
