If your garage door manages to move up and down flawlessly, just like it did when you first had it installed, you’ve got nothing to worry about. This means that your door is perfectly balanced, i.e., the tension of the springs in the system is adequately and evenly managing the door’s weight. If, however, the springs are unable to provide sufficient tension and cannot balance off the door’s weigh, then you have a problem.
An out-of-balance garage door can create a number of hurdles for you. If neglected for too long, it may even lead to malfunctioning of the garage door operator. The cables may snap or break, creating a hazard for your family.
Fortunately, you can determine whether or not your garage door is unbalanced by the presence of the following signs:
- It takes longer to open or close the garage door
- The garage door gets too heavy to be opened at all and gets “stuck” in place
- There is an audible sound made while the door opens or closes which wasn’t previously heard
- The garage door appears to be noticeably uneven while being opened or closed
