Common Garage Door Repair Services

  • Problems with opening and closing. Does your garage door close and then open right back up? Do you have issues with your garage door opening only part of the way? What about only closing part of the way? These can be attributed to a few different factors, but many of them deal with the springs and tension that allow your garage door opener to open up the door or the laser sensor located at the bottom as a safety measure.
  • Garage door remote doesn’t work. This is something that we suggest that a client try to fix themselves as sometimes the issue is simply the batteries have died. However, if the batteries are fresh and the door still won’t respond, that is an issue that is often an easy fix with our help.
  • Gaps in the top, bottom or in between. This issue is especially common with wood doors since wood expands and contracts according to the temperature. With steel doors, you might want a garage door repair that takes care of alignment or weather stripping.
