The garage door shimmies side to side or moves unevenly.

A garage door that moves unevenly up and down is usually an easy issue to solve. This is most commonly caused by debris obstructing the garage door tracks where the wheels run. Once you clear those, you may notice that your problem is completely solved. However, in some cases it may not solve the issue completely. Your next step is to check out the quality of the garage door springs. Your garage door’s springs should be the same length, and if they’re not, they should be replaced. Usually, your garage doors springs will stretch the same amount over the same amount of time, as long as you always replace them at the same time. If the springs are looking okay, it may be time to call the garage door experts, because your garage door motor may not be performing like it should.
