Garage door repair can be a tricky and dangerous operation if you don’t know what you are doing. There are extremely powerful springs that counter balance the weight of the garage door. The springs are connected through a torsion bar to cables. If the cables become loose it can be very dangerous. Most garage door repair should be performed by an expert.
Garage Door Spring Repair
Never attempt garage door spring repair unless you are a good engineer. This is tricky, dangerous and requires special equipment. A spring breaking is loud. If you hear a loud bang when opening or closing the door, it’s probably a broken spring. If the opener is straining to open the door, it may be a broken spring. If the door cocks to one side when you try to open it, it may be a broken spring. Even if you garage door opens don’t use the opener, as it may burn it out.
Garage Door Cable Repair
Don’t do it yourself. This is dangerous and requires special equipment. The symptoms are similar to a broken spring without the loud bang.
Garage Door Off Track
The Garage doors we install don’t just hop off their track. If you hit the door with your car, bashed it in some way or a high wind did it, the door should be inspected by a professional. There may be something bent or broken.
We highly recommend that you don’t attempt to fix them yourself. They are VERY DANGEROUS! The Springs are under Extreme Tension that can cause serious injury or result in death. So call us to get the job done right and professionally.

Houston Garage Door Off Track, Cable Broke, or Cable Off.
If the lift cable falls out of the groove it is supposed to ride in, it will throw your garage door out of alignment. This usually happens when a door is bumped during travel, or slammed on the ground. If you open the door when it has a cable off the drum, you could end up with a hung door, a much more expensive problem to fix. Do not run your door on the electric opener! This is a good reason why you should make sure that no garden tools, boxes, or anything else is placed somewhere that it could end up under your garage door.
