We often take the ability to operate our garage doors from our cars for granted. It is not until a homeowner has a Malfunctioning Garage Door that they realize just how much convenience this adds to their day to day lives. When you have to get out of your car to open and close your garage door by hand you may come to find this is not something you want to do every day. This was recently the case for one of our Bloomington, MN customers. This customer had an old Genie Garage Door Opener that had stopped working all together. It was determined that the logic board on the opener had fried. Due to the age of the opener, it was decided that Full Garage Door Opener Replacement was the most cost effective option. This is where Garage Door Repair Company was able to provide the homeowner with options on replacement. One of our technicians quickly replaced the old opener with a LiftMaster Professional Chain Drive Opener. Upon completion of the job, the door was running much smoother and more quiet than the previous machine.
