    Garage Door Hinge Anchor Point Repair

    Post  Meepster on Fri Sep 15, 2017 9:22 pm

    Hi there, 

    I am seeking out some savvy and experienced garage door specialists to help a fool like myself repair the following:

    The wood that serves as the anchor for the garage door hinge bracket is completely broken free from the anchor bolts.
    This leads to the garage door no longer able to be opened or closed (its manual only).  
    I was told it was possibly due to termite damage, or just age, but it looks like it was possibly repaired in the past poorly. 

    The attached pictures can show you the extent of wood damage. 

    I am trying to repair this the easiest and most affordable way possible, but I would like it repaired correctly to prevent it from happening again.
    My original idea was to cut the section of broken wood, affix a piece of lumber that fits and secure it to the frame, then secure the bolts into the new piece of lumber.

    However being a novice, I am facing issues on how to affix said lumber which can support the anchor and whether it will even be safe to do so. Additionally I was told to open the door to remove spring tension, but safety is also of concern. 

    Any advice and comments appreciated.

    Thanks.
