How to Fix a Garage That Has a Door off Track

If you have a garage roller off track, the door is no longer safe to operate. When this happens, the door may appear crooked or stuck in an open position. Don’t try to yank the door down or walk underneath it. Unfortunately, many home and business owners neglect this advice which can often turn a simple repair into a complicated one. Tampering with the door in this position could cause the whole thing to come down and irreversibly damage the panel. Fixing the door will involve disengaging the emergency release and attempting to realign it. You may also need part replacement if it went off track due to a broken part. Don’t delay – contact our professional repair company and schedule service today.
