Garage door giving you trouble? If you suspect a warped track, be careful; garage doors can easily fall once the tracks are bent out of shape, and a falling garage door can quickly become a fatal incident if you happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
If you don’t want to take risks, contact Mike’s Garage Door immediately and let a professional figure it out. Contact us by dialing (574) 253-0279 or by messaging us online.
If you’re not sure why your garaged door is giving your trouble, think carefully; do any of these symptoms of a warped track sound familiar?
While there could be other explanations for any of these, together they suggest a warped track. If you notice even one of these signs, take a step back and look closely at your tracks; a warped track is usually readily apparent from visual inspection.
Even if it’s not a warped track, you shouldn’t ignore these problems. Contact Mike’s Garage Door and let us fix the problem, whatever it may be. Dial (574) 253-0279 or send us a message via our contact form.
A warped track, once you suspect it, will often be fairly easy to identify with a quick visual comparison of the tracks. If they’re not perfectly vertical and parallel with one another, then you have a warped track, and your garage door will come off the rails sooner or later, depending on luck.
If you’re not sure if a track is warped, ask someone else to take a look. If you’re still not sure, call a professional; a warped track isn’t just going to eventually cost you, it could destroy property or harm someone.
There are two options for correcting a warped track, which will depend on the extent of the warping, what other damage exists, how likely it is to happen again, and other factors.
The garage door professional might carefully bend your warped track such that it’s correctly aligned again, if it’s in good condition and it’s possible to do so safely and thoroughly, without leaving behind the risk of a repeat warping.
If the track is warping due to age or corrosion, or if it’s not fixable, then your pro is going to need to replace the entire track. If the problem stems from other damage or malfunction, it may be necessary to repair or replace even more of your garage door system.

Thousands of people die every year from malfunctioning garage doors. If you repair your garage door tracks incorrectly, they’re still going to come off the track eventually. And if you’re trying to repair a warped horizontal track, the entire thing might decide to come off while you’re trying to work on it — a major safety hazard.
This makes DIY garage door repair an all-around bad idea in most cases. A tiny warp of your vertical tracks might be safe for minor adjustment, without removing the bolts, but even then you’re potentially leaving behind a problem to become worse and cause more expensive damage at a later date — all the more so if you’re not sure why it’s warped to begin with.
