There is quite possibly nothing more obnoxious than getting ready to leave your home for the day, hitting the garage door opener button and then having nothing happen. If you are fortunate enough to be able to override this problem, you can manually open your garage door but not all openers allow for this simple fix when you are in a rush. When situations like this occur you often must scramble to find alternative modes of transportation and make courtesy phone calls if you are going to be arriving late to any set appointments. It is imperative to find a reliable and efficient garage door repair company.
If you are looking for residential garage door repair Phoenix AZ has many options available to you. You may be fortunate enough to have a friend or neighbor who has recently required service and be able to obtain a trusted referral. This is not always the case however. If you have never required garage door repair, you may turn to online reviews for guidance. Many people have discovered company sites and even service industry sites that allow for commenting. These comments are honest customer reviews of service and experiences they had with certain businesses. Always inquire about service call pricing, work warranties and payment methods accepted. Most businesses do accept all major forms of credit cards but there are still some that are cash or check only. You should also receive a detailed repair receipt after service is performed. This will state the work done and the part that was serviced.
Once you find a garage door repair company that has good reviews you will want to call them and inquire about service. Most garage door repair companies will have a twenty-four-hour customer service line. The customer care agents should be able to schedule a free consult with a trained, licensed, insured and certified technician. The technician will come out to your home at a set appointment time and evaluate the repair that needs to be performed. You may be lucky and only need a minor part but in some cases, parts will need to be ordered. While the technician is at your home they will be able to do a general maintenance check on your entire garage door system. This will be a detailed look at the opener, track, motor, pull cord and sensor.
A preventative maintenance check on your garage door will provide you with any information on upcoming necessary repairs. This will be a great time to have any necessary parts ordered so you are not stuck in your garage again. It is recommended to set up a yearly check for your garage door. Extreme weather such as monsoons, drastic temperature shifts, and even extreme wind can all cause mechanical issues to your garage door. General wear and tear over the life of your garage door will also cause parts to eventually erode or break. Preventative service will ensure that all the parts on your garage door are in proper working order.
