Broken Garage Door and Broken Garage Door Tracks

Do you have a Broken Garage Door or have a garage door falling out of its tracks? Did a teenager back into the door and mess some panels up? There are a lot of parts to how a garage door actually works. This is true if you have an automatic opener or not. Hinges can break. Rollers can seize. How do I say the next one nicely? Accidents happen? Cars bump into garage doors and unfortunately, little bumps can sometimes cause big problems. Garage doors also simply fatigue over time. The garage door track can become mangled and the door can fall out! This can be dangerous to anyone nearby, but one broken thing can cause others to break.

These pictures are from a little car accident with the garage door. The car bumped into the door while it was closing and bent it. When the owner tried to operate the door, the opener ripped the door out of the track and bent it even worse. This can usually be repaired! Reinforcements can be added and dents can be hammered out. A couple of able hands and a replacement roller that was lost, and this door was back up and running great.
