Garage Door Track Repair Service
Garage doors that come off their tracks can create dangerous situations for homeowners in Torrance, CA.
In addition to being an inconvenience, a garage door that’s off its tracks has a better chance of falling onto people or vehicles that are below. Fortunately, Precision Door Service of Torrance has a team of highly skilled garage door contractors who can get your garage door back on its tracks.
What Causes a Garage Door to go off the Tracks?
Garage doors can have up to a dozen rollers. They can come off the tracks, or multiple rollers can fall off the tracks, depending on what is causing the issue. Some of the most common reasons for the rollers to come off their tracks are:
- Loose tracks
- Strong force
If the rollers get damaged or dented, they can come out of the proper alignment and cause the garage door to fall off its tracks. The tracks can also loosen and cause the door to wobble if the bolts that hold the tracks in place come loose or fall out. A force to the garage door, such as the impact of a vehicle or another object, can also hit the garage door hard enough to push the rollers out of alignment. The garage door’s rollers can also become dirty or rusty, which can cause them to fall off their track. This is one of the easiest problems to fix, as it simply requires cleaning off the tracks and lubricating them. If you cannot figure out right away what is causing the garage door to be off-track, try lubricating the tracks first and cleaning off the rollers to see if that helps. You may also notice that the garage doors make more noise than usual if they are dirty and need to be cleaned, such as squeaking or grinding.
