Emergency Garage Door Repairs08/24/2016 Back To Blog
When you accidentally back into your garage door, you're bound to have a million different things run around in your head. Maybe you can blame it on your 16 year old son. The age and inexperience makes the lie believable enough until you realize that you don't have a 16 year old son. You're going to have to get the blame for this one. You just need to man up and face this problem head on.
The Emergency Repair
First and foremost, calm down, and hope that it is your overhead door that you heard getting warped out of shape and not your car. Getting repairs done on your car is likely going to cost you more. Once you confirm that it is the door that got damaged, it's time to call up the local emergency garage door company. A company like this will be able to offer their services in an expedited manner. Most will offer repair services on the same day of you contacting them.
The extent of the damage is also going to be a big factor as to what type of service you're going to ask for. If your door was a one piece, then chances are the damage is going to be a lot more expensive than say a door with metallic panels that are sectioned off by hinges. You need to look into getting a garage door replacement if you or the company determines that repairs will be more trouble than they're worth. If the damage is only to a few panels, or to some of the garage door parts, then you won't have trouble getting them replaced or fixed – especially if they're just bent out of shape or if they just got dislodged from where they're supposed to be.
After a successful repair job done by the professionals, you'll see that the overall design of your home is saved and that your curb appeal will be good as new – or even better if you opted to get a few upgrades. Next time, however, before you start your engines or before backing up, check your brakes, check your gear and definitely check to see if your garage door clicker or transmitter is working.
