Door Stuck Halfway

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.

Symptoms and Solutions to this Problem

Today’s modern Garage Door Opener has many safety features that are built in to the software to avoid things like coming down on your child or pet, closing and crushing your car, or leaving your door open once you have already left the premise. Here are a few symptoms and solutions to the problems that may be happening if your Garage Door won’t close:

  • If your door is not running smoothly the opener will think that it is hitting something and go back up.
  • If your child or pet walks underneath the door it has sensors that will cause to go back up.
  • Same thing happens if a vehicle is parked underneath the Garage Door, if it comes down and hits the car it will sense that and reverse.
  • We can perform a tune up and get your door running smooth again or adjust/fix any safety features that may be malfunctioning.

Whatever the issue is, trust the ones who know at Garage Door Repair Co to get your Garage Door running smoothly again.

Navigating COVID-19

We are still open as an essential business

To our valued customers,

As we continue to learn more about COVID-19 and as other businesses start to re-open, our team at Garage Door Repair Company would like to express our concern for all those who have been affected. Our employees and our customers are our top priority , and we are doing everything we can to ensure the health and safety of each.

We have been closely monitoring the situation since it began and fully support all precautions being taken to prevent any further spread of the virus. Garage Door Repair Company has remained open and in full operation as we understand how important it may be to your daily lives to have a fully functional Garage Door. However, in response to this public health emergency, we’ve implemented a few changes to our policies to help prevent the spread:

  • Our technicians will practice social distancing rather than shaking hands at the door.
  • Estimates and repair recommendations can be done remotely or over the phone while our customers stay inside or quarantined.
  • Preferably all payments will be made by credit card rather than by check.
  • We will continue to clean up after ourselves, wash our hands, and use hand sanitizer often.

The nature of our industry allows us a lot of flexibility in these times as most of our technicians are working in one to two man crews which is well under the guidelines that have been laid out before us. We even have the ability to complete all work without any face to face interactions and take payments over the phone.

We thank you for working with us as we navigate this situation.
