What are some common garage door repairs?
Garage doors have come a long way over the years. They started out as manually operated wood doors that stood side-by-side. It would either took two people to open the doors or one person opening one door and then opening the other. Now, we have whisper-quiet automatic door openers that move an attractive, structurally sound door along a hardened steel track allowing the door to open and close efficiently without any physical effort on the part of the user. Even though garage doors are built to last, they will, at some point, show signs of wear and may need servicing.
Before calling a professional, there are some things a homeowner can check for themselves. Maybe the disconnect switch was enabled. That could happen if something was brushed against the switch accidentally. There could be dead batteries in the remote control. It could be something blocking the door’s path. The homeowner will want to contact a professional if they are unable to find the issue. It could be anything from something as simple as a light alignment to a broken spring or cable issues. A trained professional will be able to assess the situation and give advice concerning any needed repairs.
