  1. Weather
  2. Weather is one of the biggest causes of garage door damage. Even if you do not live somewhere with severe weather, over time your garage door can fade in the sun, become rusted, and weatherstripping can dry rot. It is important to ensure that you properly maintain your garage door to reduce any of these from becoming a larger irreparable issue.
  3. Blown Fuse
  4. A blown fuse is something that can cause your garage door to stop working. If you think a fuse is blown, you need to hire a professional to take care of the issue. If you try to fix it yourself, you can cause more damage and end up shelling out more cash in the long run. Plus, you can actually injure yourself if you are not careful.
  5. Worn-Out Hardware
  6. Another reason that your garage door might not be working properly is if you have worn-out hardware. Mechanical issues can keep your door from working properly. That includes broken springs, frayed cables, misaligned rollers, or any other litany of possible issues.
  7. Ignoring Problems
  8. Another reason that garage doors can stop working is through continued neglect. Ignoring slight issues can lead to much more serious—and costly—problems. That is why if your garage door starts making different noises or not working as it should, you should call a garage door repair company right away.
