This can be one of the most frustrating things a homeowner can experience. The garage door should open when you need to get your car in or out , so when it doesn’t you can feel trapped. There are a lot of different reasons the garage door might not open. One of which might be that you have the “vacation” switch turned on. This switch makes it so that the door will not open with the remote, you actually have to press the button on the wall of the house. You may have accidentally hit the switch at some point. Another reason may be that your remote batteries are dead.
If you can’t figure out why your garage door won’t open then you should call Seattle Garage Doors to come out and take a look!
