Springtime Is The Time To Get Your Garage Door Fixed

We have all been there, coming home from work or grocery shopping and just wanting to end the day and relax.  You push the button on the garage door opener and nothing happens.  You push it a few more times and then take if down from the visor in order to point it at the door and still nothing happens.  You take out the batteries and put them back in and nothing happens.  Your garage door is broken, and now you are going to have to park in the driveway and go into the house through the front door (hopefully you have some keys for the door, and don’t rely only on the garage door as the way into the house.)  You go out into the garage to see what is wrong, and there doesn’t seem to be anything binding the wheels in the tracks.  You look over the lifter mechanism and see that the chain is not moving, even though you can hear something trying to move.  Maybe you don’t see anything wrong and still nothing is happening when you push the button.  Something is wrong and now you are going to have to be inconvenienced until you get it fixed or replaced.  You pull the release lever so that the door us unlocked from the chain, and now at least you can open and close it manually.  While opening and closing the door manually is inconvenient, it only takes a few minutes to do so maybe there is no hurry to get the door lifter repaired.  However there is a problem, there is now no way to lock your garage.  Everything inside is now in danger of being stolen when you are not home, and if you are like a lot of people you are not used to locking your interior door, which means there is a good chance that you will forget to lock the door to your home.  Even worse, even if you do lock that interior door you are still in danger because thieves will commonly get into the garage and close the door behind them, giving them plenty of time to work on unlocking your house without anyone noticing.  It is best to just get the garage door lifter repaired as soon as possible.

If your garage door is broken and you have been putting off repairing it, spring time is the perfect time to take care of it.  You will be spending more time coming and going through the garage in order to work on things outside or spend time in your yard, and as the days get nicer you will probably be starting to take care of the outdoor things that make your home nicer as the good weather happens.  If your garage door just stopped working recently, just get on the phone and call us right away.  We can have it diagnosed and repaired as soon as possible, usually within a few days even if we have to order the parts.  If you need a whole door lifter installed, or repairs done to the tracks, door or seals, we are ready to work for you.  Take a few minutes out of your day today to take care of that broken garage door, and go back to the convenience that it can offer you.
