Choosing garage door professionals can be one of the most stressful decisions a home or business owner has to make. As the most-used point of entry on most buildings, the garage door’s functionality and appearance are crucial. If you’ve been looking for a company in Salem to complete your garage door installations, maintenance and repairs, look no further than TF Draper.
We are a family-owned company that has been serving the Pacific Northwest for almost 40 years. Located just 25 miles west of Portland, Oregon, we consider our customers to be friends and neighbors.
Our Approach to Garage Door Repair
If you’ve lived in Salem for any stretch of time, you know that weather conditions can get intense — sometimes causing damage to your door, opener or other hardware. Accidental damage and natural wear and tear also present a problem as the years pass.
While our products from leading manufacturers like Clopay®, LiftMaster®, Wayne-Dalton, Jeld-Wen, Northwest Door and Amarr are high-quality enough to rarely need repairs, a garage door that lasts forever without a single repair doesn’t exist. Contact TF Draper for repair services if you notice:
- New or persistent noises like scraping, clanking or squeaking
- Slamming or faster-than-usual closing
- Performance that is slower than usual
- Incomplete closing
- Complete lack of response
Whether you got your garage door system from us initially or not, we can complete timely repairs within your budget. Because we highly value each of our customers, we even offer 24/7 emergency services for urgent circumstances that require an immediate response. When you call, we will make every attempt to send a technician to your location within the day to diagnose the problem and complete repairs. If we cannot reach a permanent solution that day, we will try to offer a temporary fix to last until we finish full repairs.

Garage Door Maintenance
Any garage door has countless moving parts that keep the equipment functioning. Inevitably, throughout the years, rust, damage and wear and tear start to have an effect on the door. The best way to combat this issue is through regular inspections and maintenance.
While you can complete the basics like visual inspections on your own, it’s dangerous to try to do in-depth checkups and repairs without the proper training and expertise. When you choose TF Draper, you can choose from any of the following or a combination with annual tune-ups:
- Component inspection: With so many parts to your equipment like cables, springs, pulleys, mounting hardware, rollers, remotes and more, any single piece could become worn or damaged without notice. Any broken component can lead to much more expensive damage to the rest of the door. Our experienced professionals will check for rust, dents and other damage to these components and offer an appropriate solution. They will make adjustments when necessary to keep your door running smoothly.
- Alignment and realignment: An unbalanced door can lead to damage throughout the entire system, and while realignment isn’t difficult, identifying the reason for the misalignment can take time and extensive knowledge. Our technicians learn about the newest technology and best practices through ongoing training, so they’ll know exactly what to look for to tackle the problem.
- Safety feature checkup: Your garage door opener and other parts probably have safety features built in, such as auto-reverse and other convenient functions. When these features aren’t working properly, it can be dangerous to you and your family. Our technicians will make sure your door is safe and secure.
- Tune-ups: Proper lubrication for the moving metal parts in your garage door system keeps those parts from grinding together and damaging one another. Our technicians will take care of this lubrication. They will also tighten loose bolts, screws and hinges, clean and clear the tracks so nothing obstructs movement and replace old, cracked and brittle weather-stripping at the bottom of the door.
- Necessary repairs and replacements: If our professionals notice anything that needs a repair or replacement, they will inform you. While it may seem like a hassle, keeping all components in their best condition significantly extends the life of your garage door and opener.
