A garage door can come off its track for a number of reasons. Here at At Your Service Garage Door, we know how to address every garage door issue. And, return garage doors back to their original functionality. This way, you can get back to enjoying your garage as you should.
Wondering why your garage door is off track? There are a few different reasons your garage door may have come off track. Identifying how it happened may assist in resolving the issue. Some reasons garage doors come off track include:
Improper Alignment: When a door does not properly align on its tracks, it is at risk for collapsing. Or, if the tracks aren’t made of strong enough metal, they could bend under the weight of the garage door. Either way, with proper track alignment and solid steel tracks from At Your Service Garage Doors, you’ll never have to worry about a hanging garage door due to track alignment.
Broken Rollers: The rollers are responsible for the mobility of the garage door as they roll along the track. When these wear and break over time, it can cause the door to slide off the track. If this is caught early and the door hasn’t caused damage to the track, simply replacing the broken rollers and aligning the door on the tracks will fix the issue.
Broken Cables: Lift cables are attached to the torsion spring and winds into drums on each side of the garage door. However, if these cables don’t wind properly inside the drums or wear enough to snap, this could cause the door to become misaligned on the tracks. While this is an uncommon occurrence, it could happen to older systems or those which aren’t maintained frequently.
Car Accident: As much as many homeowners don’t like to admit it, the main cause of garage doors coming off their tracks is car accidents. Usually, this happens with vehicles parked inside of garages. And, the driver neglects to open the garage door before backing out. While hitting a garage door by a car can cause irreparable damage, it’s best to speak with a garage door specialist to determine if repair is the best option.
When a garage door is off its track, it poses a dangerous threat to you and your family. So, it’s important to address the issue right away to prevent any injury. And, to stop using the garage door immediately. If your garage door is off its track, consider the expert service and professionals at At Your Service Garage Doors.
