Garage Door Questions 

Why won't my garage door stay down?
There could be several reasons your door won’t stay up or won’t go down. While the simplest answer may be the sensor is blocked, there could be other reasons that require further investigation. If you notice inconsistent operation, opening or closing on its own, unusual noises, or failure to completely close, you may need to replace your garage door opener. Have one of our expert technicians come to evaluate the best solution. Learn more or call us for service TODAY at 317-860-0806 !
What's a temporary fix for a broken garage door?
Depending on what needs to be fixed, the door type, and its features, you can visually assess what needs to be done to maintain security or gain entry.

  • If the garage door should have a lock that you can manually lock and unlock for entry and safety purposes.
  • If the garage door is not opening, check the sensor to make sure there is nothing blocking the signal. You may need to wipe debris off and try again.

You should not force your garage door to open as it will cause further damage.

In most cases, you will need additional assistance if the locking mechanism or your garage door opener is not functioning properly. However, if you have damage to your rollers, springs, cables, or track, it is better to have a trained technician determine the cause and provide a solution that keeps you safe and within budget. Whether you need a simple repair or a replacement, call us for service TODAY at 317-860-0806 !

How do I fix a garage door I backed into?
Depending on the extent of the damage, you may be able to install a garage door yourself. At a bare minimum, you will need to know how to perform the following:

  • Detaching the door
  • Measuring the right dimensions
  • Laying new tracks
  • Attaching brackets and rollers
  • Placing and securing panels
  • Testing to make sure the job is done right!

While these are a simple outline of the steps you may need to take, it doesn’t hurt to have a professional examine the damage. Not only will our technicians give you peace of mind by securely fixing your garage door without unintentional harm to yourself, but you will also be backed by our warranty, service, and support.

How do you reset a garage door after pulling the emergency cord?

Before reattaching your garage door, make sure that the sensors are working properly. Blinking lights are an indicator of an obstruction. Pull back the emergency release cord until you see the lever connected to the cord attach itself to the automatic garage door opener. You should also hear it click into place. Typically, your garage door opener will automatically reconnect after you manually open and close the garage door after you. Read more….

The cost of the repair depends on the work that needs to be done, but on average, you can expect to spend anywhere from $100-$300.

How often does a garage door require maintenance?
Everyday use causes regular wear and tear on your garage door, but investing in expert maintenance assists in avoiding costly repairs. You should have your garage door checked at least once a year, ideally before the cold weather hits. A regular maintenance schedule will not only extend the life of your garage door but also ensure that you are always able to enter and exit freely and safely throughout the year. Read more…..
How often does a garage door need to be replaced? What is the life cycle of a garage door?
With proper maintenance, your garage door should last anywhere from 15-30 years. However, when a garage door breaks unexpectantly, it will usually stop functioning completely, either leaving you trapped inside, or leaving your home vulnerable to invasion.

What are the benefits of an insulated garage door?

Not only are insulated doors made to resist harsh elements, such as brutal Indiana winters, they also have a major benefit of increasing energy efficiency. If the garage door is insulated, it will keep the heat inside during the winter and prevent hot air from coming into the garage during the summer. Keeping your garage climate-controlled can reduce the energy used to keep your home warm or cool, specifically for homes with attached garages. A reduction in energy used can result in a decrease in cost. Other benefits include….

What Our Client Say!

I had a wonderful experience with Skylar and Bart today. My son’s garage door opener stopped working. I called and talked to Dave who was so kind and set up a service appointment. Bart and Skylar had the opener repaired in about 10 minutes. One of the components had went bad. They had the part with them and fixed it right away. They were very knowledgeable and took time to answer all my question. I was very impressed. It’s nice to have someone who takes pride in doing a great job. The cost was a lot less than what I thought it was going to be. They also gave me quote on replacing my old garage door opener. The price was so good, I called Dave and scheduled an appointment. If you need garage door service, call Garage Doors of Indianapolis! You won’t regret it.

Our garage doors were terrible. The safety feature that should make the door go back up if something is in the path, didn’t work – so the door would keep going and bend at the top. Our opener was so old, that our doors would open when our neighbors opened their own. We were thrilled when Garage Doors of Indianapolis installed two new doors and a new opener for us. They even went the extra mile by installing new bracket hardware rather than using the existed ceiling mounts. The crew that came out were very friendly and professional. I would recommend Garage Doors of Indianapolis to all of my family and friends. It’s funny how excited you can be for something as simple as garage doors, but they do more than you realize when they don’t work – Like protect our family at night and our stuff while we’re gone.

Not just happy with the service, but super-duper happy. The technician, Hunter, showed up on time. Very friendly, professional. Got right to it and had my garage door back into its tracks right away. He made it look easy. He took an extra couple of minutes to tweak everything into perfect adjustment. Was charged the price quoted for a job well done. My garage door opens so quiet and smooth now, it’s better than ever!



Very prompt and quality service performed on 1/12/2022 fixing technical issues with our Garage door opener and installation of touchless key pad. The service technician and was polite/courteous and took his time in making sure the job was done right the first time. End to end process working with the frontline Customer Service Team to performing the work was outstanding. Look no further for a local brand and company to work with on your garage door/service needs. Thank you!
