How do garage door cables fall off? 

Garage door cables can come off their drums for slack in tension and broken cables. We’ll come out to your home and make sure your garage door cables won’t release overall tension, and restore balance to your garage door system.

Why is my garage door opening and closing at an angle?

A slanted garage door usually signifies something within your operating system is unbalanced or has released an uneven amount of tension. While garage door cables support and help lift your garage door open and close, so do your garage door springs. 

Since garage door springs are constantly under an immense amount of tension, they commonly break or wear out if not maintained properly. Call Henderson Garage Door Services for a professional inspection of why your garage door appears slanted.
