FAQs About 24 Hour Emergency Garage Door Repair
What is a garage door emergency?
By definition, emergencies are unforeseen events that you cannot plan for, and, in regards to commercial garage doors, they can pose significant issues for your business.
When a door is stuck open, you cannot keep your inventory secure, and your employees will not benefit from climate control systems. When a door does not open correctly, it may become impossible to bring in materials, vehicles, or inventory or ship out finished products or packages.
Furthermore, a broken garage door also may pose a safety hazard. Commercial doors are often heavier than their residential counterparts, so it can be unsafe to work around a door that isn’t functioning properly. Not only will employees not be able to use the door as an entrance, but they may also not be able to work in the vicinity of the door until repairs get made.
How much does it cost to fix a garage door that won't open?
The cost for garage door repair varies based on the reason behind the malfunction. Give us a call, and we can assess the situation.
Can you manually open a garage door if the spring is broken?
It is physically possible to open a garage door when the spring is broken, but it is not a good idea. Springs keep the door balanced and provide a counterweight, so it is dangerous to try to open a door with a broken spring. Trying to open a heavy garage door manually can result in physical injury or even death.
How do I fix my garage door after an emergency pull?
Check to make sure that the sensors are online and that nothing is obstructing the door. Pull back on the emergency release cord until you see the lever physically attach itself to the garage door opener. You can then try to use the opener. If it does not work, refer to the operating manual or give us a call.
Can someone force a garage door open?
In the event of a loss of power, you can engage the emergency release mechanism if the door is in the closed position. This will disconnect the garage door from the opener and allow you to open the door manually.
