Why Did My Garage Door Come Off The Tracks?

A common reason our customers call us is when their garage door tracks bend. The team here at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair can replace the tracks and align the door after the installation. These are some of the reasons that your track can bend. 

1. Not Enough Lubrication

Your rollers need to have lubrication applied two times a year. Our technicians do this during our maintenance service. We use a lubricant designed for your garage door parts on your rollers. 

When there isn’t enough lubrication, the rollers can wear out on the sides and cause friction on the tracks. Or, the rollers may come off the tracks altogether. If the rollers do not stay in place, the tracks will bend during the normal use of the door. 

2. When a Cable Breaks

Garage doors that have extension springs have safety cables attached to the bottom of the door on both sides. If the cable breaks on one side or the other, it can cause the tracks to bend sideways. Using your door after a cable breaks will only damage the system more. 

3. Metal Fatigue

Simply using your door can cause the tracks to bend over time. The tracks can become fatigued from weight and usage. Over time, the horizontal track may warp or bend from the weight of the door. 

4. Accidents

If you run into your door with a car or something heavy, it can cause the garage door to become misaligned. Even if you don’t hit your door that hard, you should call our technicians to come out and inspect the damage. Your tracks may have shifted and become unbalanced without you realizing it. 

5. Destroyed Footings and Jambs 

The footings and jamb brackets can decay from weather conditions. These parts hold the tracks in place. If your door is running on a track with damaged footings and jamb brackets, it can cause it to bend over time. 

6. Shifting Foundation

It’s not uncommon for a foundation to shift over time. However, the shifting can cause more pressure on the door. The extra weight on one side or the other can cause the tracks to bend.

7. Scraping Lock Striker

Every time you open or close your door, parts of the door can scrape against the tracks. The lock striker is one of those parts. We often see tracks bend on commercial doors where the company uses it several times a day. 

Garage door parts wear out from use. The best thing to do is to take good care of your system and replace worn out parts before they cause more damage.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
