West Vancouver Garage Door Cables Came Off Door

West Vancouver Garage Door Cables Came Off Door

A West Vancouver home owner tried to open their garage door in the morning resulting in behavior that was not normal.  What was discovered was that a cable came off the right side drum resulting in the garage door not being able to be lifted properly.  You will see in the picture that their is one side of the door that has light peering in from the corner.  The view of the garage drum the outside will give you a indication that there is a problem.  Both sides of a garage door should be sitting flush on the ground, if your door is not sitting flush then that would be a indication that you are need of some servicing.  A range of issues can cause light to come from the bottom of  your door so please call us at: 604-940-8918 to arrange a service appointment so we can repair any issues that you might have.
