The track of your garage door allows the door to move up and down. When this path is blocked, damaged, or cable is broken, the door shifts off alignment, making it difficult to operate. Additionally, this makes the garage door unstable and dangerous. You can try to fiddle with the door, but you will cause more damage to the moving parts of the garage door or the door itself.
Is your garage door off-track? Or is the spring or cable showing fault signs? This is the time to call USA Garage Door at (954) 707-6829 now.

Why do garage doors go off-track?
There are several reasons why a garage door comes off-track, especially in residential areas. If your garage door is not on track for any reason, call us now.
Heavy impact or force – this is the most common reason why garage doors come off their track.
Such impacts include vehicle collision from forgetting to open the door or not allowing the door to completely open before driving in or out.
The impact of playing basketball is another reason, especially if you have young adults with friends catching fun at your home.
Bad weather – earthquakes, floods, extreme cold or hot weather, can affect the metallic parts of the garage door. The constant expansion and contraction cause them to crack, bend or lose shape, making them lose track during opening or closing.
Old garage door & wear and tear – as mentioned, garage doors have 7000 to 10000 cycles. If you buy a home with a garage door, it must have gone through some cycles. Most times, garage doors are the last place any homeowner would bother to check or fix.
So the next time you move into a new home, as you go about checking the locks, remember to check the garage doors and all their components.
