A Serious Problem
For proper operation, the door’s rollers should glide smoothly along the two rails on either side.
But they can become bent, misaligned, or damaged. Or the rollers could jump off track causing noises, shaking, and perhaps a jam. That’s an unsafe situation because the extremely strong springs are likely still applying tension which can cause unexpected movement.
There’s a variety of problems that can cause the rollers to go off track. Some are quick fixes, others are more involved.
- broken or worn rollers
- broken springs
- broken cable, drum, or another drive mechanism
- corroded, damaged, or dirty tracks
- damaged attachment to the garage
- damage to the door or one of its panels
- loose fasteners
- misaligned tracks
- poor lubrication
After a thorough inspection, we can in many cases simply get the rollers back on track, make a few adjustments, and clean and lubricate according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
After determining the cause, other garage door track repairs involve simply replacing a few parts. But a repair may also involve correcting misaligned tracts so that they’re level and perfectly perpendicular to the door
Over time tracks may become bent, highly corroded, or severely worn. Physical stresses can lead to metal fatigue, causing the track itself to break. We have years of experience replacing bent and damaged garage door tracks. Unless the door and opener are also showing their age that’s the best and most economical approach.
After a repair or replacement, we’ll adjust and test everything, making sure that we’ve restored the original smooth, quiet operation. And that your garage door will be reliable for years to come.
