As many home robberies occur either in the garage or through the garage, a broken garage door can be a big welcome sign to crime. This is why it is so important to keep your garage door in good working condition, which includes attending to all repairs as soon as possible. Below are some common garage door problems and repair solutions:
Problem: The garage door won't open or close.
Solution: If your garage door won't open or close and you've got an electric opener, check your keypad first and find out if your opener is functioning. You might need to have the opener reprogrammed.
Problem: The garage door sticks when opening or closing.
Solution: If the garage door sticks, the metal rollers and hinges probably needs lubricating. The tracks may also be dirty, clogged or out of alignment.
