Usually, when a garage door spring breaks the door has already closed or come down. In some instances, however, a spring can snap while the door is closing or in motion, causing the door to fall rapidly. In these situations, the door can become a safety concern for you and your family, so you should keep your distance and call a garage door professional as soon as possible. Garage doors are very heavy and can cause injury if not handled properly. When a garage door problem occurs, call a Sears Garage Door expert to repair your garage door spring.
A garage door off its track makes your entire garage unusable. Not only this, but a downed garage door can also seal your vehicle or belongings within your garage and become a safety hazard to you and your family. Garage doors usually come off their track while opening.Sometimes this occurs due to a broken cable, and at other times a car has run into a door or the door itself has closed on an obstruction.
Regardless of the cause, a downed garage door causes not only an inconvenience to you and your family, but also a danger. If your door is down, do not attempt to move it. The weight of a garage door makes the door unstable, and attempting to move it on your own can fully detach the door and cause injury. Instead of trying to fix the door on your own, rely on a Sears Garage Door professional. Our technicians routinely encounter downed garage doors and know how to handle them properly. Once on the job, a Sears technician will best determine how to handle the problem and realign the door to its track.
