Garage door repair DIY steps
It becomes easy to repair the garage door yourself if one follows the following steps:
- Check the tracks on which the garage door runs and the brackets that hold the tracks. If these are lost you can tighten them.
- Check the alignment of the tracks. If the tracks are not aligned, make the brackets lose so that the doors can run down properly.
- Clean the tracks so that no dirt might stop the door from running smoothly on the track.
- Tighten all the loose parts of the garage door. The screws, hinges, and other parts that have become loose should be fixed.
- Replace any damaged screws or bolts. Where holes in the wall to place the screws have become large, replace the current screws with longer ones.
- If the wood where hinges fit become cracked, remove the hinges and fill the cracks.
