What to check before calling a technician
As a homeowner, you must check some things before actually calling a technician in order to know if there is really something wrong with the garage door. If it is not opening or closing, you need to check the batteries of your remote control because it might just be the reason. You may also want to inspect the electronic eyes of sensors since it affects the door’s mechanism if misaligned.
