GARAGE DOOR ROLLER AND TRACK REPAIR

Garage Door Track Repair and Replacement

Over time, the operation of garage doors without proper maintenance can lead to damage, such as bent tracks or frozen rollers. At Door Works we specialize in track repair and replacement, as well as garage door roller repair and replacement

Garage door tracks come galvanized for protection against rust and corrosion. Earlier tracks had raw steel simply covered with black paint. Vertical track lengths range most commonly from six feet four inches up through 14 feet and four inches, and mostly in 12 inch graduations.

Garage door track repair or replacement becomes necessary most commonly because of malfunction on another door part. Garage door tracks and rollers typically get bent or damaged in the following scenarios:

•Broken cable and/or cable drum connection. When this happens, and one attempts to close the door, the door will bend sideways and bend the track.

•Roller displacement may crop up as a clue pointing to tracks. This results from a lack of lubrication on roller stems. Failure to lubricate these rollers leads to inflexibility, and a bending of the lower portion of horizontal track, with a repair shortly to follow (Many still wonder why the track rollers keep popping out).

•Lock strikers can cause significant scraping on the vertical track, and eventually can lead to a split in the track.

•"Frozen" or defaced rollers.

•Decayed jamb or footings.

•Road salt and the rust which follows (especially in the Midwest or North), or other corrosive industrial chemicals present leads to compromise of the galvanization on the track, and a needed replacement. Natural deterioration results from varied sources based on geographic location. Coastal areas, for example, see more corrosion from a breezy maritime environment.

•Commercial plant accidents often involving heavy equipment such as forklifts. The hazards of this account for the protective yellow posts often placed near each garage door in a warehouse or plant--to minimize repair bills. Still, sometimes upper vertical lift tracks see damage. Replacement becomes warranted with these types of accidents.

•Trucks slamming into the dock, or other building hits, often prove debilitating to tracks.

•Metal fatigue in the horizontal track itself. This arises from repeated door weight put on the track.

•Normal shifting of the foundation and construction materials, and hence, door parts, over time.
