Trying to open or close the garage door and it doesn’t work as it should, can be frustrating. It doesn’t always mean that there is a major problem that can’t be solved without a repair technician. There might be something easy you can do that will save you time and money. Below are some of the common problems you can run into with your garage door and some simple things to try and resolve them.
If you have a remote for opening and closing the garage door, it might be low on battery power. Try replacing the batteries and see if it works. A non-working keypad might mean that you need to reprogram it. Follow the directions that are included in the owners manual to reset or reprogram the keypad. Check to see if the breaker has been tripped that supplies the opener. Resetting it should clear up the problem. If it still will not open, then you need to contact a Warminster garage door repair service for help.
If you have no problem opening the garage door, but it won’t stay open, this can be a sign of tension spring wear. It gets old to have to use two people to get the car in and out of the garage. While one holds the door up, the other gets the car in or out of the garage. Replacement of the tension springs means that you will have to have the door serviced. They are difficult to handle and can cause injury if handled wrong. It’s not a hard fix for someone that is experienced and it’s surprisingly affordable.
A garage door that sticks when it is going up or down might not need a whole lot of assistance to be working properly again. Be sure and check the runners and see if there is a stick or some other type of debris in the way. Removing this should make the door operate smoothly again. Try lubricating the rollers with quality oil. Don’t use any type of solvent, except pure lubricating oil. You will have to bring the door up and down a few times to see if the lubrication is helping. This may be all that the door requires. If you are still experiencing problems with the door sticking then seek Warminster garage door repair to find out what the problem is. They can check it from top to bottom and give you an estimate on repairs.

The experience with Girard's Garage Door Service was great! Blair came out to look at my garage door and let me know what it would need to be efficient and quiet. He gave me a written estimate and several options. My husband and I were quite pleased with both the promptness, courtesy and professionalism of Blair and Joe both in person and on the phone. They answered any questions we had and when we decided to have the work done, it was done with promptness and what fit our schedule. Blair explained everything about the new remotes and key pad and made sure several times that everything was in working order before he left. We couldn't be more pleased and would highly recommend Girard's to anyone. They are great people, they are fairly priced and do a fantastic job. Thanks Joe and Blair for a wonderful job!!
