Garage door problem

Posted by leo-li (My Page) on

The frame on my sectional aluminum garage door has cracked near where the garage door opener attaches to it so that it can no longer open it (I can still do it manually though). There is a styrofoam piece that goes on the door that acts as a buffer between the door opener and the door itself. That too seems to have been damaged somehow. Does anyone know if the frame can be repaired / replaced or do I need to replace the whole door?

RE: Garage door problem

Everything can be repaired if one chose to and also if the cost of the repairs is reasonable. It's difficult for me to venture a solution without knowing the state of the crack but u can patch the crack with another aluminium cut to shape and u either weld or tighten it with bolts. A clear description of the situation would help though.
