Emergency Garage Door Repair

Your home is more than just a place to store your things and keep your family out of inclement weather. It is your safe haven, or at least you hope it is. If you are having an issue with your garage door, you need to think past the inconvenience and decide if it is putting your safety at risk. Once you answer this question, you’ll be in a better position to decide if you should call for emergency garage door repair, even if it is after normal business hours. Here are some of the situations that should have you picking up the phone right away:

  • Door won’t close. Just as you wouldn’t sleep easy if your front door was wide open, neither will you if your garage door won’t close completely. Even if it is only open a few inches, that tells potential criminals that you are vulnerable.
  • Door could fall. If you have a situation where the door could fall, calling for emergency garage door repair is the only way to be 100 percent certain nobody will get hurt. The weight of a garage door is far more than you might imagine and can easily injure or even kill.
  • No place to park. Some properties only have parking in their garage. If you don’t have a driveway or street parking, or not enough for the number of vehicles you own, you can’t go long without having access to your garage or risk a ticket or towed vehicle.
