FAQ for Garage Repair in Palatine
What are the most common reasons that garage doors get jammed?
How can I keep my garage door in good working order year-round?
At least once per year you should do a routine maintenance check on your garage door. This takes less than 10 minutes and requires no heavy lifting, except for the manual lifting of the door (even if it's motorized). So ask someone to help you if you're not able to manually open the door by yourself.
Use a flashlight and look at the cables and pulleys on both sides of the door. If any of the pulleys are in bad shape, you will usually notice that one or more cables are frayed. Next, raise the door halfway and run the palm of your hand, gently, across the bottom rubber seal of the door to make certain it isn't broken or loose. Finally, if your door is motorized, close it and then pull the "emergency" cable. Most emergency cables have either a bright red or orange handle. Pulling it allows you to lift the door manually.
If all is well, then your door doesn't require repair. If any cables were frayed, the bottom rubber seal was damaged, or if you couldn't lift the door manually, then you'll likely need some repair work done on your door.
