A Bellevue, NE, client called us for an emergency garage door repair. We dispatched our team immediately and strongly advised them not to use their garage door until we arrived. When we got to the location, we saw that the right track hanger kit had come off the ceiling. As a result, the horizontal track collapsed, pulling the horizontal angle off its mount. When we inspected the door, we found the culprit was the track hanger kit's loosened nuts and some rusted bolts. We immediately got to work, tightened the nuts, and replaced the corroded parts with new ones. Next, we repositioned and secured the horizontal angle onto the ceiling. After less than two hours, we finished the job by lubricating all the moving parts. Satisfied with our speedy service, the client made us their preferred contractor for future projects!

Damaged garage door rails and tracks are the most common reasons for garage door failure. Here is a short list of whether you need to replace garage door tracks and why you should inspect them regularly.

Signs Your Garage Door Rails Need to Be Replaced

Poor Installation of Garage Door Rails

Improperly installed garage doors can cause several issues. In this case, the door is likely to hit something while closing or jam as you try to open it. That can be both irritating and unsafe for your family. While we could move the rails around, we advise having one of our experts install new rails that match your door. If the garage door is damaged, your best option is to replace the garage door and system completely.

Your Garage Door Falls Unexpectedly

A garage door falling is common when there are broken garage door rails. Rails can start to wear down over time, causing them to open up, bend, break, or even come out of walls. It is best to catch this problem early by noticing when your garage door starts to slip. Another way to check on rails is to hire a garage door repair specialist to inspect them every one or two years. Remember that a sliding door can be a safety hazard for your family, so never ignore it.

Your Garage Door Is Noisy

Garage door noises can come from worn-out or bent rails. When this happens, doors may scrape against rails and produce a loud sound. Another potential source of noise is misaligned rollers rubbing up against something. To figure out what is causing your noisy garage door, we recommend calling us at Titan Garage Doors NE for a full inspection and replacement of any damaged parts.

How Important Is Your Garage Door Track

The tracks are the mechanism your garage door slides on when it is open. They are an essential part of the system and are bound to suffer from wear and tear as time goes on. In addition, the weight of the garage door can cause damage to garage door tracks resulting in springs breaking and panels warping.

When it comes to home safety, among the most important things to remember is to ensure your garage door is as secure as possible. There are many different things you can do to make your garage door is properly secured, but a few things you do not want to forget is to inspect the rails and your garage door track.
