New Garage Door – Service, Installation and Replacement
One of the most frustrating things that a homeowner can encounter is running into a situation that involves a problem with their Garage Door. In many cases, this can require the purchase of a New Garage Door or New Garage Door Opener. There are a couple of major reasons for this. The first one involves their security. A garage door that is not functioning is like having a door that opens to your home but isn’t working the way that it should. Not only is there an issue you’re your safety, your family’s safety and the safety of your loved ones, but also the prevention of theft when it comes to your car or items that you have stored in your garage. Fortunately, a new garage door installation company can be the answer to this safety concern.
Some of the other minor (and not so minor) issues that may necessitate a garage door installation can be the stress and inconvenience that comes with having to get out of your car to unlock and open the garage door when you’re tired. That can certainly happen when you’ve had a particularly difficult day at work, and all you want to do is to get inside your home, maybe take a hot shower and then relax. This type of situation can make worse if the weather is bad (such as rain or cold). Or you might suddenly find yourself stuck outside in the dark! That might be the time that you need to decide whether or not to contact a garage door company or whether you want to attempt to approach the issue as a DIY (do-it-yourself) Project.

Do Some Troubleshooting If You Can
However, even if you want to consider a New Garage Door Replacement, you might want to take a closer look at your garage door to see if a replacement is warranted. Therefore, we’ll take a look at some rather simple troubleshooting actions that you can do yourself, to make that decision.
Is The Remote Broken?
If you notice that the door isn’t opening when you use the remote, but works fine when you use the wall switch, then you might not need to purchase a new door and then call on a Garage Door Installation specialist to install it for you. In this case, you may want to take note of how you’re holding the remote. Is it close enough to the opener’s antenna range – or is the antenna damaged? Are the batteries too weak or dead? Is your remote programmed correctly? After checking all of these things, you may also want to check if the remote, itself, needs replacing. However, if you wish to try out a brand new remote, you want to make sure that the new remote is compatible with your current garage door opening mechanism.

Does The Door Still Refuse To Move With a Working Remote?
You can determine this by observing that the garage door refuses to work even if you’re using the wall switch. Should this be the case, then you will want to look at the lights. If the lights aren’t on, then your garage door opener is obviously not receiving any electrical power. That may also be a time to consider a Garage Door Replacement Service. But before that, you will want to take a look at the fuse, the GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) or the circuit breaker. That can indicate to you if you have an issue with the electricity.
Once you’ve investigated the door opener’s electricity, take a look at the emergency release chain. The first thing to do is to pull on the chain which will serve to disengage the door’s carriage. At that point, the garage door will be able to function on its own (manually), independent of the opener. Now check the door’s opening and closing ability.
Does The Door Reverse, Once It Hits The Floor, Or Refuses To Close Fully?
This particular problem can sometimes involve a bit of close investigative work with major attention to detail. That’s because the usual cause of this problem is the fact that something is blocking the garage door from closing smoothly. That can be anything from a foreign object or some physical damage to the door that you’re unaware. To determine if this is the cause, you may need to go over the entire door track. Fortunately, you may get a break if the problem can see at the point where the door stops and reverses itself. Even then, there may be more than one problem location that you will want to investigate if fixing the initial problem area/point has been done, and the door still reverses before touching the floor.
These are some of the areas that you will want to investigate before contacting your Local Garage Door Replacement Service to replace your entire garage door. The money that you save can be considerable, and you will also learn a bit more as to how your particular garage door operates. That can help you when it comes to future routine DIY maintenance.
