Garage doors can be complex depending on the type you have. Whilst there are a myriad of reasons why you may need a repairs service, there are common problems that do tend to come up frequently:
Damaged Guide Tracks
Guide tracks or guide rails are an essential part of any garage door system because they guide the shutter curtain to where it needs to be to fully shut or open. If a bump or knock bends the rail even slightly then the path of the shutter curtain will be obstructed and the garage door will not be able to close. Over the years of providing garage door repairs in Newport we have witnessed many reasons for misaligned/bent guide rails. The most common cause comes from moving heavy items, storage or garden equipment which can catch on the side of the rails and cause a bend in the track. Rust can also form on guide tracks that have been poorly maintained further obstructing the passage of the shutter curtain.
Transmitter Electronic Faults
Roller shutter garage doors in particular rely heavily on a transmitter unit which responds to a remote control and operates the motor responsible for opening and shutting the door. If your garage door is not opening and you have replaced the remote control batteries then there is a fault with the transmitter box. Transmitter faults can occur for a number of reasons like shorted circuit boards or powering issues. Transmitter boxes draw their power from the mains so we would advise against trying to troubleshoot the problem on your own as this could lead to fatal electric shocks.

Broken Garage Door Springs
This is a very common problem experienced with manual up and over garage doors. Springs are employed and calibrated in many garage door systems to add an upwards force which makes it easier for someone to lift the door open. Without the assistance from a spring it would be very hard to manually lift and slide a solid up and over garage door open. Sometimes these springs can break leaving you with no upwards force assisting the sliding process. In most cases springs will diminish in tension over the years to a point where they will need to be replaced.
