It’s a work day. You’re running late. You grab your keys, jump in the vehicle and press the garage door button. You check your rearview as the door goes up and start backing out, then CRUNCH!

Your kids have been at school all day. The bell rings and they head home, hoping to do some relaxing on the couch. They enter the keypad code and the garage door starts lifting, but then SNAP! the garage door falls on one side. Stuck in the opening. They’re locked out.

Scenarios like this can – and do – happen, but could be preventable.

Typically, the garage door is the main door to go in and out of your home. A proper working operator will raise your garage door fully, so you can back out safely. A technician who services your door has the opportunity to replace the rusting or frayed cable, so there is reliable access into the home.

  1. I agree that the garage door is the main door to go in and out of your home. My dad bumped into our overhead door and damaged it last night while he was entering the garage. My uncle suggested having a new overhead door and shared this article with him.

  2. Is it possible to replace a damaged garage door panel instead of having to replace an entire garage door? I guess it just depends on whether that panel can be found in stock somewhere?

  3. My mom was about to go out of the garage when our head suddenly dropped, we discovered that it’s covered with rust. It was explained here that a proper planned maintenance can provide security, dependability, and peace of mind. Moreover, it’s best to go to trusted professionals for overhead doors.

  4. I like how you pointed out that a professional will be able to fix the issues safely, so there will be no worries on our side. I guess it is best to hire them to ensure that we don’t get injuries. We just need their services because the garage door opener won’t work properly, and the garage door is now opened half way which can be dangerous when it falls suddenly.

  5. As we know that garage doors are installed by many tools and utilities to make them stand and in working condition. Therefore, it is common for such issues can be found. By checking them regularly and getting them to maintenance task will prolong the life of the garage doors.

  6. Our garage door is not readily closing. It seems to hang up and then reverse for no apparent reason. We didn’t have this problem in the winter, but now that the temperature is higher it frequently occurs. It seems that by cycling the door it will get lower and lower until it will finally close–after as many as four cycles. What should we do to fix this problem?
