How to Choose a Garage Door Repair Company

Choosing a professional garage door service can be one of the most important decisions you make when it comes to the care of your home. Garage doors are investments, and to get the most out of them, you need a professional who doesn’t cut corners on installations, inspections and repair. Here are a few tips to getting the most bang for your buck when it comes to garage door professionals.

Start by talking to your friends. Nearly everyone who has owned a home for more than a few years has likely had the need for a professional and they can share with you their experience. Always get estimates from at least two or three different companies, but don’t always let the lowest price tag make the choice for you. Consider the warranties and certifications of the company. Some may cost more but be worth the extra service.

Don’t authorize a repair until the professional has fully explained the problem and detailed the required costs. And get it in writing. Most garage door repairs will cost less than a couple hundred dollars.

Beware Fraudulent Garage Repair Contractors

A reputable and experienced garage technician should be able to provide you with an estimate when you inquire about their services. Be wary of any company refusing to talk about costs when contacting them. Feel free to watch your technician performing the repair and ensure they’re receptive to any questions or concerns you may have.

Garage Door Opener Repair: Adjusting Sensor Alignment

If your opener doesn’t work because your electronic eye is off, simply disconnecting the electronic eye will not get the opener to work. Federal law mandates that it be in place and working properly, so the door is designed to not be able to function without it. Luckily, it’s a fairly simple repair when it comes to garage door openers. Reconnect the eyes to the opener, and check their alignment. They should be pointing directly at each other. You may want to wash each with soapy water to make sure residue isn’t getting in the way. If they are pointed directly at each other and have been cleaned but still don’t work, you’ve probably got a problem with the electronics.
