Something happened at some point while we were away on vacation and when we came home we couldn't get into our garage. Yesterday we had a local handyman come over to try to get the garage door open as we have no other way into our garage.
Luckily, we have a crawl space above the garage and the repairman was able to get into it from the crawl space opening in our tenants garage. And what did he find?
Part of the ceiling in our garage had collapsed! And when it fell, it unplugged the garage door opener. Luckily the garage door track kept most of the ceiling from completely falling and landing on Mr. R's new car.
So now our garage door is stuck open until we can figure out what to do. I want to talk to the insurance company first so I know if this is covered. The handyman recommended a local restoration company that will deal with the insurance company and everything so I may go that route.
And why did the ceiling collapse?! We have no idea. You would think it would be because of the freezing weather, snow and ice. But there's no sign of any water damage so we have no clue as to why this would just happen.
The repairman charged us $65 which came out of home repair fund.
