If you understand what causes a garage door to fall off its tracks, you’ll be able to take steps to make sure it doesn’t happen.
An untracked garage door is not just inconvenient, it can be dangerous. They are very heavy and may cause serious injury to a person who thinks it’s safe to squeeze around or beneath a damaged garage door, only to have it crash down on them.
A garage door off its tracks is also an invitation for intruders who may be tempted to enter your house through the garage, or help themselves to items stored in the garage.
Here are the most common reasons that a garage door falls off its tracks:
If your garage door falls off its tracks, the best solution is to hire a qualified garage door specialist for repairs. An experienced specialist will be familiar with a variety of garage doors and will understand what caused your door to fall off its tracks and how to fix it.
A reputable technician can often make repairs promptly, so you’ll be without a working garage door for just a day or two. While the technician is servicing your garage door, take the opportunity to learn more about how your garage door works. Ask the technician how you may avoid problems such as an untracked door.
If you use your garage door a lot, it’s possible you and your family will benefit by upgrading to a higher quality door. A program of routine garage door maintenance that includes periodic lubrication and adjusting the moving parts when needed is also a good idea.
