Overhead Garage Door Repair 101: Rods vs. Springs

Does your overhead garage door sag in places? It’s a sign of age. Overtime, the door becomes harder and harder to open. One way to square them up is to add tension rods or adjust the tension if you already have tension rods. You can buy them at most hardware stores.The rods run diagonally from top to bottom corners. Tighten the turnbuckle at each rod to straighten out the door.

Never DIY Spring Repair!

While rods are fairly easy to repair on an overhead garage door, springs are definitely not something you want to mess with. Always call a professional when it comes to springs and cables. These components are under an incredible amount of tension. If they should suddenly snap, they can cause serious injury or even death. Always call a professional when it comes to spring replacement, repair or inspection.
