Some everyday tasks are fine to DIY, but the following garage door repairs should be left to professionals.
- Loose lifting cables – The cables link the springs to the bottom of the door. They work under high tension to hold the doors, so handling them could be dangerous.
- Broken door spring – the spring balances the weight of the door. It is prone to lose extension with constant use, so it needs to be replaced regularly. The right pro should do the repairs.
- Misaligned horizontal tracks – They guide and support the door. Various issues can cause their misalignment so repairs should be conducted by a pro to avoid taking off the entire door.
