What You Need to Know About Garage Door Repair

After you have called for a garage door repair contractor you will want to prepare for their arrival:

  • Remove your vehicles from the garage and driveway
  • Clear items away from the garage door springs and side rails
  • Make clear access for a step ladder to be placed under the ceiling mounted garage door opener(s)
  • Keep children and pets away from the work area

Garage door repair or the replacement of the springs, roller bearing, lift motors, and control panels requires about three hours. The replacement of an actual damaged door takes longer. Door replacement may not be performed on an emergency basis because the replacement door may need to be manufactured so it’s customized for the opening and to made to match the architecture of your home. This is critical for homes in managed communities.
