Frequently Asked Questions
What are garage doors made of?
Garage doors are fabricated from various materials. They can be made of wood, vinyl, or metals, such as copper, steel, or aluminum. Glass, polyurethane foam, and rubber are some other components that might be used to make various parts of garage doors.
The best type of garage door material for your home depends on your décor preferences and needs. Vinyl may hold up to weather without maintenance better than wood, for example, but wood can provide a luxurious look. Stainless steel is durable and long-lasting, as is copper, but some metals might require more care than others. A garage door installer can help you understand the pros and cons of all the different choices.
How do I fix a garage door that is off track?
You may be able to fix a misaligned garage door by opening it until the problematic roller is near where it's coming off the track. After securing the door, you can use pliers to open the track enough so you can force the rollers back in. Then, use pliers to put the track back in place. If the job is too much for a DIY attempt, contact a garage door repairman.
Can a bent garage door be repaired?
Whether a bend in a garage door can be fixed depends on the door material, the location of the bend, and the extent of the damage. Small bends in a metal door might be hammered out with a rubber mallet and a block of wood, for example. A garage door repair professional can help you understand whether repair or replacement is the best option.
