This can be performed by you easily; no need of professionals. You need a professional when remote isn’t working even after performing the above tasks.

Your Garage Door isn’t Closing Completely

Garage doors manufactured after 1993 have the security systems called photoelectric sensors that transmit the invisible light beam between the two ends of the door. When anything comes between the path of a garage door; the beam is broken and garage door travels in reverse position. So, if your door isn’t closing completely; ensure that there is nothing that interferes the invisible beam. Sometimes, the sensors are misaligned or dusty and might be possible that garage won’t be closed.

In this situation; clean the dirt first and an object which is causing the connection break; take it away from the path. Ensure that sensors are aligned properly or not. If not then read the manual and try to align it. If it is aligned and garage door works sufficiently then you do not need to pay to garage door experts. Otherwise; you do not have another option than calling the experts.

If springs are broken then I strongly recommend you to hire the garage door experts to replace it.
