Garage Door Repair: The Basics


 
Home Improvement
Garage doors may seem simple, but repairing them can be a difficult process. These openings have two main components: the door itself and the opener. The doors operate on spring tension, whether they roll up in sections or swing up in one piece, and they move on metal tracks that are set in the walls. Heavy springs provide the power that allows the doorway to open. If it stops working properly, the garage door repair job will generally be fairly simple. The steps below encompass basic garage door repair jobs and will fix most problems.

The first thing you should do is inspect the metal tracks inside the walls. You should look at the mounting brackets holding the tracks in place and tighten the bolts or screws if they have become loose. Next, examine the tracks for crimps, dents, or flattened spots. If any damaged spots are present, you can fix them by pounding them out with a mallet or by pounding a hammer onto a block of wood. If this does not work, the tracks are too damaged and should probably be replaced.

Next, check the tracks to make sure that they remain properly aligned. Horizontal tracks should be at a downward angle towards the back of the room, and vertical sections of the track should be level with the roll-up doors. Additionally, it is very important that both tracks be the same height on the walls. If you discover that the tracks are not properly aligned, you should loosen the bolts or screws holding the mounting brackets, but do not remove them entirely. Then tap the tracks back into position. Before you tighten the screws or bolts again, check the tracks again using the level to make sure they're at the right position. Once you do this, use concentrated household cleaner to remove dirt and grease from the tracks, then thoroughly clean the rollers and wipe them dry.

After you inspect the tracks, you should check for loose hardware and tighten any that you find. You should check the plates upon which the springs are mounted and also check the hinges. Tighten any loose screws you find and replace any hinges that may be damaged. This can fix sagging doors. If the screw holes have become loose, use a longer screw of the same diameter and use a hollow fiber plug to fill the excess space. If the wood around a hinge has become cracked or damaged, remove the hinge and use wood filler to fix the damage. If possible, try to move the hinge to a section of solid wood so it will no longer be on the damaged portion.

Although the above steps will take care of most minor problems, if they do not work, you may have a more severe problem on your hands. If this is the case, it is probably best to call a garage door repair professional as soon as possible to make sure the problem doesn't get worse.
