The garage door is a vital part of the entire garage structure. When functional, the garage door looks appealing and enhances the convenience and appearance of your home.
The door not only helps with opening and closing for access into the garage but is also a part of your garage that is seen from the outside and, therefore, it has the potential to impact the aesthetics of your house, for better or worse.
Keeping this in mind, several homeowners choose a specific material or color for the panels so that they match and complement with the rest of the look of the house. However, when something goes wrong with the garage door, it immediately affects how your garage appears.
No homeowner would like to have a broken or dysfunctional garage door that is stuck in an awkward position. Moreover, apart from the visual impact, a defective or broken garage door can cause significant damage to other parts of your house leading to expensive investments on garage door repair services.
One of the most obvious and visible problems in a garage door is an off-track door. You can easily detect this problem since the door will not hang at the correct position. It will either remain slanted or stick out from its track. It will not move smoothly on its path.
An off-track door is usually the result of broken garage door cables. Cables are an important piece of equipment that balance the weight of the door as it moves upward or downward. In a case when one or both of them fail, the door does not know how to manage its weight and how to move in the right direction causing the lopsided appearance and movement.
Cables generally break after several years of wear and tear. If you book regular maintenance and checks, chances that you will be able to identify early signs of fraying and save yourself from a major problem are high. Keep an eye on thinning cables or instability in the way the door is moving and contact us immediately for service requests if you notice anything unfamiliar.
Apart from troubles with the cable, a door may become off-track and lose its path due to an obstruction or post a hard blow. For instance, if you hit the door while reversing your car, it would create a hard impact and cause the door to jar from its tracks.
