When Garage Doors Fail, Call Garage Doors of Indianapolis

There are all sorts of reasons why you might need reputable, efficient garage door repair services from a provider you can trust. Here are some of the most frequently experienced issues indicating you need garage door repair services:

The most obvious and immediate problem is the one mentioned previously, which is when your garage door(s) won’t open. The issue could be resolved easily, depending on what’s causing the malfunction, or it may be something more serious requiring the attention of a trained technician. Another indicator is noisy operation. If the garage door is making excessive squeaking, grinding, or other unusual noises, it could signal a serious mechanical issue is brewing that you’d want to address as soon as possible before it stops functioning altogether. 

If there are one or more broken or worn-out springs, the garage door may be difficult and even dangerous to operate. There could also be a malfunction happening in the automatic reversal feature, which is a safety feature that makes the door stop or reverse if it encounters or detects an obstruction. Inconsistent movement where the door stops and starts randomly or moves jerkily might be indicating potential problems with the door mechanism or opener. Finally, you may simply have security concerns about the garage door being an easy access point for burglars, especially if the door doesn’t close properly or has visible damage. 

There are some simple things you can do to help your garage door stay in good working order and reduce the chances of experiencing sudden total failure. Read our blog article: Top 10 Preventive Maintenance Tips for Garage Door Owners.

CAUTION: Read This Before Attempting DIY Garage Door Repairs

There are a couple of things you can do when the overhead door of your garage won’t open. If you have an automatic opener with a remote control you typically use, replace the batteries in the remote. Hopefully, that gets you back in business. If not, another thing you can check is to see if the electronic “eye” sensors are dirty or misaligned—assuming you have an alternative way to get inside the garage, such as from inside the house.

Those are two common problems that can prevent your overhead garage door from functioning properly. If neither of those is the issue, then it’s time to call Garage Doors of Indianapolis. There are a whole range of issues that could be the problem, and many of them could result in serious personal injury if you try to fix them yourself. Play it safe and bring in a professional residential garage door repair, service, and maintenance expert to do the job. We’re only ever a phone call away at 317-284-9893.

A Garage Door Repair Services Menu for Indianapolis and Beyond

A garage door seems like a relatively simple thing you use in everyday life without thinking about it, which may be the case with a manual door, but when you throw in automatic garage door openers, things quickly escalate in complexity. Below are the many different garage door repair services Garage Doors of Indianapolis provides:

  • Panel Repair or Replacement: We can often (but not always) repair a portion of a door rather than replacement of the entire door.
  • Springs: Torsion springs are what make your door go up and down easily. If one or more springs are broken, your door may not work properly, and they’re not something you should try to fix yourself because they’re under high tension.
  • Cables: The lifting cables that help many garage doors operate are also under high tension. Never attempt a DIY cable repair or replacement!
  • Rollers: Replacement rollers have to be the exact correct size, which we can quickly determine.
  • Dead Remote: If the remote control for your door opener isn’t working, replace the batteries. If that doesn’t resolve the issue, give us a call, and we’ll figure out what’s going on.
  • Opener: The mechanism that actually opens an automatic garage door has plenty of potential problem areas that experience wear and tear over time, but our expert technicians can quickly diagnose what’s happening and why.
  • Off-Track Door: It’s not easy to put a door back on its track if it has become dislodged. This is a serious project you should not try to do yourself. Let the professionals do the heavy lifting!
