Dangers of a Misaligned Garage Door

Have you ever looked at your garage door and notice that it doesn’t line up perfectly straight? If so, then it may be a good idea to reach out and have us check your garage door alignment. If you do not have your garage door aligned properly, it could lead to issues like your garage door malfunctioning and even falling. Someone could easily get hurt in a situation like this, so we always want to recommend fixing it before that happens. Here are some important things to know about misaligned garage doors.

How Misaligned Garage Doors Lead to Trouble

Whether your garage door is misaligned due to the settling of your garage or you simply have an old garage door track, you need to be aware of the danger. Your garage door only functions safely when it is set on its track properly. If it moves, shifts, or starts to open or close off balance, it could lead to a big, heavy garage door crashing down on anyone or anything in its path. Even a slight change is something to take note of. If that change gets worse, you need to have someone come in and fix or replace the door.

It is also important to note that your garage door may become misaligned as a symptom of a bigger problem. Your garage itself may be old and no longer square. It could also be that you have foundation issues under one part of your garage, throwing off the balance of the building. No matter what is leading to the misalignment, you need to be aware of the problem. The last thing you want is your whole garage coming down on you when you are in it.
