    What To Do if Your Garage Door Gets Stuck

    A garage door has two main purposes. One is to protect your car and anything else you keep in your garage from damage. Another is to open and close on command and reliably let you in and out of your garage at will. If your garage door gets stuck, it can fail at one or both of these objectives. However, you shouldn’t panic. If this happens, there are a few things you can do before you need to call for help.

    Make Sure It’s Not Locked

    It may seem silly, but sometimes your garage door is only stuck because it’s still locked. Always double-check.

    Make Sure the Opener Works

    The door opener may be acting up or have stopped working entirely. Check if the batteries need to be replaced or get a new door opener.

    Inspect for Damage

    If you’ve ruled out a locked door and a broken door opener, then the door itself could be damaged. Check the springs to see if they’re intact, see if they’re in alignment, and make sure the cables are still working properly. If any of these things need to be repaired, it’s best to call a professional for help.

    Check for an Obstruction

    Sometimes, the door might be blocked by something. From a ball your kid lost a week ago to leftover ice and debris from the winter, cleaning out your garage doors might be the key to helping them function properly again.

    See If It Needs Lubrication

    Garage doors can get sticky and slow from time to time, which is why it’s important to keep them clean and lubricated. By lubricating the tracks and rollers, you may see your door working good as new one.
