Repair and Replacement for Broken Garage Door Openers


Garage door openers are a wonderful invention. Thanks to these simple machines, no longer do people have to bend down and try to lift up heavy garage doors by hand. However, when a garage door opener stops working it can be a real pain to deal with, for a home or business owner. Garage door openers consist of two parts: the actual opener that’s attached to the garage door as well as to the ceiling on the inside of the garage; and the remote portion that is usually a handheld device that’s kept inside your vehicle. A broken garage door opener can occur when either or both of these parts have a problem.

What is Wrong With Your Garage Door Opener?

If the remote for your garage door opener, whether it’s a handheld or keypad, stops working, in most instances the battery simply needs to be replaced, or the device needs to be reset. However, in some cases, the remote or keypad will have to be replaced entirely. If your garage door opener stops working for another reason, other than a faulty remote, then you should really consider contacting the experts at Preferred Window and Door. Our team of experienced and knowledgeable technicians will come to your home or place of business and determine what’s causing the problem and then get it repaired.
