What Causes A Garage Door to Go Off Track?

There’s no single reason why you may find yourself with a garage door that’s come off track, in fact, there’s quite a few. If your garage door is no longer safely on its track, then one of the following reasons could be to blame:


  • Impact – A common cause of garage doors coming off their track is impact, often the result of accidental vehicle collisions. Forgetting to open the door before reversing your vehicle or not giving the door enough time to open before you move your vehicle forwards can do serious damage to the door and its track. Even just a small impact can cause some of the garage door track rollers to come loose.


  • Wear & Tear – Like most garage door components, the garage door track rollers will eventually start to wear down. If the rollers wear down to the point that they break, then the additional stress put on the remaining rollers could damage them or cause the garage door to come off its track. In the worst-case scenarios, failure to replace broken rollers could also lead to the rails bending.


  • Poor Alignment or Tension – If garage door tracks aren’t properly aligned, then you may find that the bolts on the track become loose and the rollers eventually come away from the track. Not enough tension in the garage door springs can also cause the garage door to come off track.


  • Bad Weather – Adverse weather can cause sudden damage to your garage door and the rollers, causing them to break before their time. It’s important to make sure that your garage is well-maintained, so a sudden bout of extreme weather doesn’t cause major problems. Ongoing maintenance is also key to preventing other problems, like the lift cable breaking.


  • Poor Quality – If your garage door track or a garage door replacement track is of a poor quality, then you may find that it’s unable to support the full weight of the door. Other poor-quality parts, such as lift cables and rollers, can also cause your garage door to come off track.

Whatever the reason your garage door has come off track, the team at AR-BE Garage Doors will be able to find a solution. Our garage door off track Chicago repair and replacement service covers all types of garage door track problem, with an efficient service to restore your garage door as quickly as possible.

What Should You Do If Your Garage Door Has Gone Off Track?

A garage door that has come off track can become very dangerous, as the door and track will be highly unstable. If you’ve noticed a problem with your garage door and believe that it involves the track, then it’s vital to call in the professionals at AR-BE Garage Doors as soon as possible.  You should halt all operation of the door, including manually lifting the door or using an automatic opener. Trying to adjust the door after it has come off the track can result in much more serious damage occurring, which will make repair or replacement more difficult, and potentially increase the costs of restoring your garage door.
