Servicing Off-track garage doors in Raleigh
An off-track garage door may trigger accidents and loss of money besides looking horrible. You should not try to move the garage door yourself or with the automated garage door opener, since it might cause even worse problems for the door, or potentially be life threatening if it completely falls off the track.
Reasons for Off-Track Doors
One of the most seen reasons for off-track doors, is when one or both of the garage door cables snaps. The cables serve as cushion for weight of the door and provide support to the door while it is in motion. Garage door cables can survive decades if they are properly installed and if the garage door is used normally, but every garage is not set up optimally so uneven and accelerated wear and tear happens.
Garage doors may be off-track because of some other causes aside from cable problems. If something is stuck in the track or an intense force is applied abruptly, the door can naturally become loose. If you set the car in reverse keeping the garage door partially or entirely shut, the car may strike the door with force great enough to derail it. Even a relatively light tap with the car can dent or warp the track so that over time the door is likely to jump its track when in motion.
If one garage door panel is having trouble moving through the track, it pretty much stops the whole door. You certainly do not want to try forcing a jammed panel to move through the track for very long – it will break something eventually!
