It is never easy when something breaks down and it is even worse when it happens unexpectedly. It can throw off your entire schedule and if something breaks down late at night you don’t want to have to wait until morning to have it repaired. Especially when the thing that has broken down is your Garage Door or Garage Door Opener. Sometimes the Garage Door can get jammed open due to a broken cable or torsion spring or the Garage Door Opener may stop working and now your door won’t close properly. Garage Door Repair Company offers 24 Hour Repair Service to meet all of your emergency needs. Over in Minneapolis, MN we had a customer that had an issue with their Garage Door Opener happen at the end of the night when they were locking down the house to go to bed. This customer was concerned about leaving the Garage Door open overnight with their cars and valuables exposed. Even though it was 7:30 PM when the initial contact was made we were still able to have a technician out to their residence within an hour. We were able to make the repair and get the customer’s Garage Door closed and locked down for the night.
When leaving the house you don’t always look back to make sure that the Garage Door has closed because you rely on your Garage Door Opener to keep working every day and you never really can predict when your Opener may finally run its last cycle. In Vadnais Heights, MN we had a customer where their Garage Door Opener would no longer close or open consistently, they were moving back home after working in another state and needed to have access to their Garage Door so that it was easier to move their things in to the house. We were able to have a technician out to her location within two hours and were able to install a brand new LiftMaster Professional Garage Door Opener.
As a homeowner you trust that your Garage Door will go up and down consistently every time so it can really be frustrating if your door won’t close suddenly. Or similarly, you go to close your door and about halfway it stops and goes back up. Your Garage is a place that you store valuable things such as your car and other items that may be kept for storage so you don’t want to leave your home or go through an entire night with these things exposed. In St. Paul, MN we had a customer that was experiencing this issue where the door would almost close all of the way but then pop back up. Our experienced technicians at Garage Door Repair Company were able to figure out that the door wasn’t running very smoothly and the safety features in the Garage Door Opener were sensing that resistance and causing the door to reverse.
