So, when your door is stuck what could it be?

Your garage door is a complex system that might seem simple to the naked eye. Mechanical parts all work together to provide you with this convenient door large enough to pull your car into the safety of your garage. With all these parts seeing daily use, it’s not uncommon for them to break down. And many homeowners don’t know, your garage door needs regular maintenance, which can help its parts perform longer without breaking down.


Broken Spring

Recently hear a loud bang in your garage but couldn’t figure out what it was? If your door is also stuck, it could likely be the torsion spring on your garage door has broken. The spring relies on tension to play a role in the system that balances the weight of your garage door and propels it to open. It has the most tension when it’s closed, and because of the repetitive use, it can break down over time. This is a large coil wrapped around a bar that runs parallel to your garage door opening, you may noticeably see it split in two, though some garage doors have two springs as well.


Broken Cables

The cables on your garage door help guide the sides of it up in response to the tension of the spring. Because these also see a lot of regular use and are made of metal wires woven together, it is possible for them to break, causing your door to sage in some odd ways it didn’t before. But it’s nothing we can’t handle! We’ll get your cables back in shape in no time.


Garage Door Opener

A garage door opener helps make the opening of your garage even simpler on you, in addition to all the mechanical parts that help lift. But like anything else, over time they can give out. If your door is relatively easy to open manually, but the opener won’t work and you’ve check the remote batteries, there may be an issue with the garage door opener. Thankfully, Garage Door Repair Company can help with that too!
