Garage Door Repair in Toronto and the surrounding areas
Garage door repair is one of the most popular reasons for giving us a call. Failure of your garage door could be caused by a variety of reasons. Broken springs or cables could be the culprit, or any other issue that can result from years of wear on your door mechanism. Regardless of the cause, it can be annoying and upset your schedule but, most crucially, it is dangerous!
Can I Fix My Garage Door by Myself?
Although there are times you may be able to fix the problem yourself, we highly recommend that you call in an expert. Because every garage door is different and requires a unique approach to repairing it, please don’t try it yourself unless you have the necessary expertise and technical knowledge—you might just end up causing even more damage.
That said, before you contact any professional, here are two things you CAN try at home:
1 – The transmission battery is dead
As simple as that… and yet, many people fail to check the transmission battery before paying money for a technician. First, press the transmitter on the wall inside your garage and check whether it opens the door. If it does, then the transmitter in your car likely just requires a simple battery replacement.
2 – The sensors are blocked
As you may know, your garage door works with sensors. Once one of the sensors gets blocked, the door will open normally; however, it will probably only close halfway. In this scenario, inspect the area around the door to see whether you can locate any item that is blocking the sensors. Sometimes your kid’s bike is at the heart of the problem.
If neither of the above solutions fixes the door—please don’t risk yourself and your family. Contact us today and we will be happy to help you.
