A garage door is practically useless if it can’t cycle correctly, and a bent or misaligned track can put you in a tight spot if it stops functioning midway through opening or closing.
A problem like this can be highly inconvenient, but contacting the right people can get your system fixed quickly. That’s where Oregon City Garage Door comes in — we’ve serviced the local area for more than 25 years.
How Can You Detect the Issue?
Problems with a door’s track can either occur gradually or suddenly, depending on the circumstances. Issues will often manifest themselves through noises rather than appearance or function. Grinding and squealing are immediately recognizable symptoms, and labored cycling is another one to monitor carefully.
Of course, if your garage door has stopped working entirely, you should check it over as soon as possible. Disable your opener, so no one can attempt to use it and worsen the damage.
If you want to get a head start on diagnosing the issues, you can detect specific cues on your own, including:
- Rust and corrosion: If your garage door system is aging, you might have to deal with a degrading track. Imperfect alignments can cause the rollers to skip the track or catch on debris, which then causes damage.
- Loose screws: Check for loose screws throughout all parts close to the track system, including the rails and the rollers. You can tighten them, and then test the door for a few cycles. If they come loose again, the likely culprit is a misshapen track that’s forcing the door to exert force in the wrong direction.
- Damage on the door: This check might seem strange, but look over your door’s interior for signs of aesthetic damage. If someone backed into it before the door opened or closed, the car’s impact could have forced the door off its tracks.
- Misaligned or broken rollers: Rollers keep the door moving up and down slowly, but dirty ones can stop circulating smoothly. Instead, they’ll slide and drag, which can bend the tracks and force misalignments.
