Reasons to Get Your Garage Door Track Repaired
There are two different tracks in your garage door system. The first is the horizontal track which provides the door a place to hang when it is open. The second is the vertical track, which guides the door up and down while it is opening and closing. Each side of the door has a vertical and a horizontal track. If any of the tracks are broken or damaged it can cause major problems for your garage door. Here are some common problems that can occur with your garage door track.
In order for the tracks to work correctly, they all have to be aligned with each other. If one of the tracks is even slightly out of alignment it can throw your garage door off track — literally.
Tracks that are bent can affect the alignment of the garage door track system, but mostly they disrupt the path the door takes when it opens and closes. This can cause the door to slide off track or bend.
Dirty or Dry Tracks
Garage door tracks need occasional lubrication to prevent the parts from creating too much friction when the garage door opens. Smart Garage Door Service offers services to lubricate and clean your garage door tracks.
