Easy-fix garage door issues

There are plenty of these common garage door issues that you can easily take care of yourself. Sure, we appreciate your business when you call 888-578-2360 for repair services, but there’s a certain satisfaction that comes from handling garage door issues yourself.

For example, if when you push your opener button, your garage door opens again, simply clear any obstructions that are blocking the photo sensors. If you notice any rust spots at the bottom of your garage door, make sure you clean it with soap and water at least once a year. Or if you push your garage door opener and it doesn’t open at all, simply replace the batteries and your problem will probably be solved. If your garage door squeaks or screeches loudly when it’s opening or closing, simply apply a spray-on garage door lubricant to restore it to quiet efficiency.
