Our team has a wealth of knowledge to share. If your garage door experiences some type of a malfunction, we'd be more than happy to help. We've compiled this list of FAQs to help our customers find solutions to some common issues.
Can I remove rust from my garage door?
If you find a small rusty section on any of the door panels, you can try scrubbing it off and then applying a special varnish for future protection. When it comes to other rusty garage door parts, like the tracks, rollers, and springs, there is no much you can do besides getting them replaced. These components play a very vital role and their condition must be pristine.
What is the fix for a bent garage door track?
In some cases, it can be straightened with the use of appropriate tools. This can happen if the bending is minimal. If the bending angle is large or if there is damage to the track itself, then replacing it will be necessary. Both of these tasks should probably be left to professionals, though, as the tracks guide the movement of the panels, and any issues with them can cause the door to get off track and potentially even collapse.
My garage door is hanging to one side - what do I do?
This is probably due to a loose or frayed cable, according to our experts. Check all the cables carefully to identify the problematic one and have it replaced as soon as possible. If you have extension springs and one of them breaks, a similar situation can also occur. In both scenarios, professional assistance will probably be required, as spring or cable replacement can be very dangerous.
