    What to Do for a Sticky Rollup Garage Door

    When your rollup door starts to stick on its way up or down, it can be troublesome, and it may not always be easy to pinpoint the problem. Sticky rollup garage doors can be caused by several different things.

    What Can Cause My Rollup Garage Door to Stick?

    There are several reasons your rollup garage door can start sticking. Here are a few of them:

    • Obstructions. Over time, dust, grime, and other debris can start to build up in the track of your rollup garage door. This can cause it to get stuck as the debris interferes with how smoothly your door can move on the track. Cleaning out the track and ensuring there are no other obstacles in the way of your door can usually remedy this issue.
    • Broken or worn-out parts. This one is pretty obvious — if parts of your garage door are broken or worn out, they can affect the door’s operation. Bearing plates, torsion springs, and other components can wear out eventually. In this case, it’s best to contact a professional to have them come and inspect your door to see what is broken and to repair it. Trying to repair a rollup garage door yourself can result in injury or property damage if the door falls suddenly or moves unexpectedly
    • Misalignment. Misalignment might not seem like a big deal, but it can be a common cause of rollup garage door problems. Tracks that are too tight can cause the door to rub, and over time, that rubbing can cause the door to stick. It can also cause aesthetic issues as it can take the paint off the door. Additionally, rust and misalignments in tracks themselves can contribute to a sticking door.
