How Should I Handle A Broken Garage Door?

If your garage door stops working, there are a few things you can do to try and fix the problem. First, check to make sure that the power is still working to the garage door opener. If it is, then check to see if there is anything blocking the door from opening or closing. Sometimes debris can accumulate on the tracks and prevent the door from moving.

If none of these solutions work, then you may need to call a professional to come and take a look at your garage door.
