The garage door is made up of about 300 moving parts and pieces. Each plays an important role and is connected together to work as a team. The garage door track is one important component and is where the rollers are found. It is also the one that guides rollers for smooth movement of the door. It is galvanized for protection against corrosion and rust. Vertical tracks are commonly six feet four to fourteen feet and four inches long, and can be purchased in three, two, or one inch. Most residential and commercial tracks commonly use two-inch tracks while three-inch tracks are ideal for heavier industrial doors. Tracks also vary in lift type. These are the standard, vertical, and high lift. Most residential doors have standard lift tracks. Repair or replacement of damaged garage door tracks becomes necessary to ensure smooth travel of the door, or commonly because of malfunction on another part. The cables on the other hand, also play an important role in protecting a vital part of the door, the springs. It should be checked regularly as part of a safety measure.
Since different garage door parts work as a team; if one is broken, the rest may be affected. This is true especially with the tracks and cables. When distorted, they may certainly cause problems to the entire system. Garage Door Repair Williamsburg is equipped to repair any type of problem that comes from your cables and tracks. You may be troubled with a broken garage door cable and connection, which may be obvious when the door bends sideways and bends the track when you attempt to close the door.
