garage door repair?

Our garage door is not straight when it comes down and when it is closed it is still not sitting straight. My husband has worked on it with no luck. It is chain driven. Any suggestions?

    If the system uses the coil spring over the door, there are steel cables on either side, and may need slack adjustment. If the springs are on both sides of the door with pully system, it has similar cables to adjust. Loosen and take up the slack in the side that seems lower and re-clamp. It is best to do this when the door is fully up to release the tension. Make sure to clamp off the cable before making adjustment!! Garage door systems can be very dangerous, if you are not confident in working on it safely, call a pro. It's less expensive than broken bones!
