Titan Garage Doors Lincoln NE received a garage door repair request from a resident in Springfield, NE. They informed us that their garage door was noisy when in use and was moving slower than usual. We inspected the garage door and saw that loose rear track support caused the door to be misaligned. Because the door was out of alignment, it caused the door's noisy and slow movement. We fixed the issue by straightening the door track and tightening all loose nuts. The bent roller guide also needed repositioning due to the misalignment. After the successful garage door track repair, the garage door glided on its tracks smoothly.
There are several things to consider when installing a new door, but one of the most important is ensuring you have the right tracks. There are special tracks that come with every new garage door. That is because the installation process requires using tracks that fit the door being installed. Many times, people try to cut corners by using adjustable tracks, but these often do not work as well as factory-made ones. If the tracks fail, the performance of your door will suffer.
A garage door track is a steel bar that is attached to the garage door and the garage ceiling. The roller garage door guide system runs along this track for the entire length of the door to allow for smooth door operation. In order to keep your garage door functional, you need to pay attention to your garage door track. A broken garage door track can cause serious damage to your car and yourself.
One way to tell if your tracks were installed incorrectly is by how well the door opens and closes. When tracks are not installed right, the door will likely hit something as it closes or jam when it opens. While we can adjust the tracks, we recommend that one of our professionals install tracks that match your door.
Broken garage door tracks are a typical cause of slow-moving doors. Tracks can open up, flex, break, or even come out of the walls as they wear down. Therefore, early detection of the issue is crucial. You can also have a garage door technician inspect the tracks once or twice a year to determine their condition. Remember that a sliding garage door poses a safety risk to your family and should never be overlooked.
There are many possible reasons for a garage door's screeching, scratching, or scraping sound. For one, it could be coming from the garage door tracks. The door may scrape against the tracks and create a loud noise as the tracks wear out. Additionally, the rollers may produce a rubbing noise when they are not properly aligned in their track.
Worn-out tracks will need to be replaced with new ones. No matter what is causing the issue, we recommend calling a dependable garage door repair company for a comprehensive inspection and garage door track repair.
