    Problem with garage door top two panels

    Post  brenda_meng on Fri Oct 12, 2018 1:08 am

    Has anyone ever experienced the top two panels not 'bending' as they should when you try to close the door?  Its like the two try and come down together without 'separating' horizontally.  It's like they bend concavely from the outside and make a very loud noise on the way down.  Or they don't come down at all.  It's hard to explain without a pic or a video but if you know what I'm talking about and have any thoughts, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    damaged top two panels

    Sounds like it could be that they need more braces or some people call them struts. If the door is a long door like 16' this sounds like the section are not supported enough to hold the center of the door up and the sections are bending in the middle and not wanting to work correctly. I'm not sure without seeing a video of the door working.
