What to Do if Your Garage Won’t Open

So you can’t open your garage door? We’ll bet $20 this happened at the least convenient time. That’s how it is with garage doors. They work perfectly until they don’t — and then it’s the end of the world. Take a deep breath. First try changing the batteries in your remote. It sounds obvious, but you wouldn’t believe how many emergency calls we get over dead batteries. Next, check to see if the door is off track. If it is, stop working the door immediately. A fairly easy job could become extremely expensive if you continue to use the door and ruin the track. Finally, do a visual inspection of your springs. These springs are under incredible tension, so leave the actual servicing to a professional.
