1. How often should I check my garage door tracks?
It’s recommended to inspect your tracks at least twice a year. This ensures you catch potential issues early, saving you from costly emergency repairs.
2. Can I adjust the tracks myself?
While minor adjustments can be DIY, it’s essential to contact professionals for significant alignments or if unsure. An improper adjustment can lead to further issues or even injuries.
3. What tools do I need for minor adjustments?
A wrench, C-clamps, and a rubber mallet are commonly used. Always ensure you follow a maintenance checklist for best results.
4. How do I know if it’s a track issue or a door problem?
If the door doesn’t glide smoothly or is noisy, first inspect the tracks. If they look fine, the problem might be with the door springs or other components.
