I hit my garage door! Now what?
Whether you simply didn't pay attention, or your teenage son got confused with the pedals - accidents happen to the best of us! Thankfully, depending on the extent of the damage, repairing your garage door might not be as costly as you think. (Or it could, really depends if it was you or the teenage son!)
First things first, you need to call a professional garage door repair company. The damage to your door might look minimal, but that doesn't mean the hardware or mechanical components got out of this accident unscathed. A technician will examine every component of your garage door system, and give you the diagnosis.
''Maam, I'm sorry, your door didn't make it.''
Just kidding! What we mean by diagnosis is, simply put, what exactly is wrong with your garage door and its parts. Like a good doctor, our technician will then move on to treatment options, explaining the pros and cons of each, and will help you make a cost-effective decision. Repairing a garage door that's been hit by a vehicle isn't something that should be attempted by yourself. Depending on what went wrong, the repair could prove hazardous at best, and extremely dangerous at worst!
You wouldn't let just anyone perform surgery on you now, would you?
So leave your garage door repair to the professionals, that's what we're here for! We can help you put this accident behind you. We offer warranty on parts and labor as well, at no additional cost to you, leaving you free from worry - unless Junior crashes into the door again!
